Imminent attack on Iran?

Imminent attack on Iran?


Joe Biden reiterated today that he believes in a diplomatic solution with Iran. Is he trying to give Iran one last chance or does he really believe this nonsense? 

To get a bomb you need around 85% enrichment. Iranians passed the 70% enrichment threshold several months ago. They made new centrifuges. They disconnected cameras that tracked their uranium enrichment activities. They have perfected their missiles.

But, following the fable of diplomacy, the Iranians would not want to manufacture nuclear weapons.

They did not observe that Ukraine would probably not have been attacked if it had kept its atomic bombs.

They did not see that, thanks to its nuclear arsenal, North Korea could now directly threaten the United States.

They did not understand that a possible new treaty with the United States required the agreement of the American Congress and that given the rise of the Republicans, such an agreement was unlikely.

Preparing the opinion

Biden gives the impression of wanting to prepare the public for a military attack on Iranian nuclear facilities.

He also gives the impression of making excuses for the first treaty with the Iranians, a treaty torn apart by Donald Trump. 

Because the 2015 treaty was very weak. At most, he could have slowed the Iranian nuclear arms race.


The negotiations for this treaty had been led by Biden when he was vice president.

Biden is right to say that Trump made a big mistake in rejecting the treaty. But the first mistake was to believe that the treaty would prevent the Iranians from developing atomic weapons. At most, this treaty would have delayed its development.

Questioned today about the use of military means against Iran, Biden replied that it was possible. He also said that the patience of the United States was not infinite.

In short, except for a last minute agreement, it is difficult to see how a military attack against Iran will be avoided.
