Sofia's take on local and international current events involving Iran, Iranians and Iranian Americans. It is up to us to dictate the future of our people and homeland...
So we’re getting an A-bomb…
This week’s IAEA report on Iran’s nuclear program painted a grave but vivid scene. With pages upon pages on highly verified evidence, the Islamic Regime’s pursuit of nuclear military capability was essentially displayed as a validation to the mounting fears in the last decade. There is no doubt that Iran is shooting for the nuclear bomb, no pun intended.
As an Iranian who stands in vehement opposition of nuclear armed Ayatollahs for a variety of reasons, I know from my own experiences, that not all progressive and liberal-minded Iranians are on the same page – many are for some reason naively convinced that the Regime’s nuclear intentions are peaceful. Selective hearing at its best; you see a regime that beats, tortures and murders its own, yet its nuclear aspirations don’t raise eyebrows?
There is no more gray-space; there is no more room for debate or assumption. The Islamic Republic is in pursuit of a nuclear bomb. This is now, factually accurate.
What has Iran now achieved? Deceiving a portion of the world in respect to its nuclear ambitions is no achievement; it is a mockery of international relations. Showing the world you are not a peaceful regime is no achievement, it’s an embarrassment. Being an oppressive Regime which seeks even more coercive power and a heavier iron fist is no achievement, it’s a disgrace.
With the Regime’s nuclear ambitions exposed, who wins? No one. The reality uncovered is not one to be celebrated. The Western world doesn’t celebrate a rising nuclear threat in a volatile region, nor does it celebrate the imminent spread of nuclear know-how to terror cells across the globe. Certainly, Iran’s imprisoned dissidents are not celebrating the reaffirmation of a brutal regime, nor are the families of those executed and kidnapped by regime forces.
This is not a game of winners and losers, rather a world in which a nuclear capable Islamic Regime must be appropriately and timely addressed for the sake of Iran’s grand history, Iran’s centuries-old dignity and Iran’s glorious future.
