Default Iran fills Arak nuclear reactor core with concrete

Props to Iran!
Quote:
Iran has removed the core of its Arak heavy-water nuclear reactor and filled it with cement, according to the country's official news agency Fars.

The fate of the reactor was one of the toughest sticking points in Iran's long nuclear negotiations last year.

Under the terms of the deal, Iran agreed the heavy-water reactor would be reconfigured so it was not capable of yielding material for a nuclear weapon.

The removal of the core is one of the final steps required by the deal.

Also, props to the US for shutting down Iran's nuclear weapons potential peacefully, rather than invading and going to war.


RESPECT TO ALL PARTIES IN THIS CASE.

Where are people like Trump, Cruz, Fiorina and other fear-mongering idiots? Nowhere to be seen. Why are they not going nuts over North Korea testing nuke just recently? Why is there not much media coverage with North Korea as there was when Iran tested a nuke some years back or the missile test last month? Is Japan not close allies as Israel? Something very interesting going on. So much hypocrisy..

Sanctions>>>>Invasions.

Barry O finally earning that Nobel Peace Prize.

Cue The Donald with his 'worst deal ever' bullshit.

But seriously, America... How many Ws can one Nation hold? The people are sick of winning. It's spreading like the plague.

Actually, Trump is the only person that consistently talking about North Korea. I get that you probably don't watch his speeches, but he's been talking about them since the very beginning. One of his main taglines is "we talk about Iran who doesn't even have nukes, but there's a madman running North Korea who already has them and the media doesn't even talk about it".

America is the best.

This does go well towards Barry O earning his Nobel Prize no doubt.

Based Webb the military genius was also talking about China and North Korea saying Iran wasn't a threat.

Is anybody actually going to inspect this or are we just taking Iran's word for it?

Yea, it's called the IAEA, they finished their initial inspection late December and will continue to do so following the agreements between 3+3 and Iran, also those IAEA came to with Iran on their own.

Iran never tested nukes, and the interesting going on is the Israel and Saudi Arabia lobby in the US, something that Iran doesn't have.

Sure he has brah


We're not due another recession or anything, even after 7 years of 0% interest rates and 3 rounds of QE - saved the nation, saved capitalism, just like FDR

FDR: the man who somehow gets the credit for 'saving capitalism,' when almost every European nation recovered from the Depression before the US (who just had the longest depression, and were saved by the war). Luckily, Obama won't have a third term in which to salvage his legacy, and none of his so-called legacies have the slightest chance of sticking (ACA simply will not and cannot last, he has no chance of gun-control, no matter how many tears he sheds, and his policies in the Middle East have been disastrous, in fact, they've been so nonsensical that he contradicts himself and whatever previous pledge he's made every few months). He supports Turk bombing of the Kurds, who he supports against IS, who he supports against Assad, who he indirectly aids against IS, who are helped by Saudi Arabia, who he is helping bomb the Houthi in Yemen, who are aided by Iran, who we are working with in Iraq to fight IS.

What a genius

Inspectors to visit the site today for confirmation:
Quote:
Iran has removed the sensitive core of its Arak nuclear reactor and U.N. inspectors will visit the site on Thursday to verify the move crucial to the implementation of Tehran's atomic agreement with major powers, state television said on Thursday.

Removal of the core from the Arak reactor will largely eliminate its ability to yield nuclear bomb-grade plutonium, and was one of the toughest issues to resolve in the long nuclear negotiations with the six powers.

"The core vessel of the Arak reactor has been removed ... and IAEA inspectors will visit the site to verify it and report it to the IAEA ... We are ready for the implementation day of the deal," spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Behrouz Kamalvandi said.
