Can you spare a cup of uranium?

Putting the cart before the horse seems to be the story of IRR, the Islamist Rapist Republic’ “civilian” nuke enrichment program(s).

IRR has always claimed their entire vast, mostly clandestine and illegal nuke program is due to the desire for self-sufficiency. Therefore to provide the needed indigenously produced nuclear fuel for the future power plant they’ve spent billions upon billions of dollars to setup nuclear enrichment facilities.

There is a slight hitch though, for such self-sufficiency scheme to work one has to have vast deposits of locally mined uranium or the dependency on importation stays put. It will also exponentially strengthen the case to suspect the enrichment program is for nefarious purposes.  

Now that the Islamist Rapists have placed Iran and Iranians in the current unenviable position over their illegal and suspect nuke enrichment program comes the following news from their nuke front man:

“Nuclear exploration has now become the country’s focal center of interest. Feasibility studies would be conducted across the country soon. And layers of resources which may have contained uranium have been discovered in the country.

Considerable needs of Uranium can hopefully be met from country’s resources in an eight year span.”

What if all the previous exhaustive studies are correct and no vast uranium deposits are to be found?

It is either the costly cart before the horse scenario or the messianic Islamist Rapists are going for the ultimate weapon; either case is bad news for Iran and Iranians.

The fanaticism exhibitted by some of the anti-Iran commenters here at IC is astonishing.

Day in, day out, it's always the same: knock the Meehan at every opportunity. 

For these folks, there's never a personal story that isn't related to a negative portrayal of their former country, never a comment related to anything but dark political commentary.

In some ways, you remind me of the extreme anti-establishment radicals in the US during the 1960s and 70s. For them it was also a one-track mind, knocking Uncle Sam every chance they got. And they despised the US government, the same way you people detest the Islamic Republic. 

Back then, the liberals were one thing. But the extreme radicals preaching revolution were nothing short of traitors. Which is what you people are, no question about it.

Iran has much uranium to mine for and even if new sources are discovered, rest assure mullah's will sell it to the highest bidder and pocket the money. Case and point copper mine of sarcheshmeh in Kerman, Italains have been sucking in dry like there is no tommorow. when it comes to IRR, always follow the money, who benefits and who will pocket the money, the rest is minor detail.

That article Q linked to has a number of caveats. From the first 2 paragraphs:


"Since 1988, Iran reportedly opened as many as 10 uranium mines, including the Saghand uranium mine in Yazd province, as well otherwise unspecified locations in Khorassan, Sistan va Baluchestan, and Hormozgan Provinces, and in Bandar-e-Abbas and Badar-e-Lengeh Provinces along the Gulf. The Director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Reza Amrollahi, announced in 1989 that the expected reserves of these deposts was in excess of 5,000 tons.

Uranium resources of Iran were not considered rich. The results of the AEOI exploration activities had shown proven reserves of about 3,000 tons of Uranium so far. According to the discovered indices (more than 350 anomalies) and the results of the field discoveries, the expected resources of Iran could be at the range of 20,000-30,000 tons of U3O8, throughout the country. Therefore Iran's domestic reserves might be sufficient enough to supply the raw material for needed nuclear power plants in future."

Here's a few lists of top uranium reserves and production by country:

The IRI is not on any of the lists.

It burns to find out Iran has been mining Uranium for years,

by Q on

Just when FredCo's propaganda operation wants to BS us into believing Iran doesn't have Uranium.

We are indeed amused!

Aquatic remedy

When truth hurts and burns, as it apparently dose, the Islamist Rapists and their planted moles in the civilized world can always give their show president’s aquatic remedy a try.


Q

Yawn FredCo,

by Q on

Iran does have significant deposits of Uranium and more are discovered all the time. And there is sufficient supply already discovered not that Uranium supplies need to be "vast" at all for one power plant online.

As a propagandist, you really can't expect your targets to be that stupid. But of course, you and your bosses do think that about us.
