Six Nation Treaty with Iran: What Does It Mean?
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the current Supreme Leader of Iran. As both spiritual and political leader of the Shiite nation, his supreme purpose in life is to bring about the return of the Mahdi, the Islamic “messiah” who will convert the entire world to Islam and establish Sharia law.

President Barack Obama has informed the American people that the Iran nuclear agreement he is hoping to conclude with Iran is a once-ina- lifetime opportunity.
“So this may not be optimal,” he conceded. “In a perfect world, Iran would say,‘We won’t have any nuclear infrastructure at all,’ but what we know is that this has become a matter of pride and nationalism for Iran.”
“It is a good deal even if Iran doesn’t change at all,” Obama contended. “In fact, you could argue that if [the Iranians] are implacably opposed to us, all the more reason for us to want to have a deal in which we know what they’re doing…”
Obama concluded that at least for ten years “even if they wanted to cheat, we would have at least a year, which is about three times longer than we’d have right now….” (www.nytimes.com; link: goo.gl/BXaNcf)
Wait a minute! What did Obama say? Three divided into 12 months equals a maximum of four months before Iran could finish building a nuclear bomb! In fact, four months is not the most ac- curate number. According to John Kerry’s official fact sheet on the negotiations, U.S. intelligence estimates Iran’s breakout time to produce its first bomb is currently two to three months!

So my simple question is, why wouldn’t the Iranians be racing to the breakout of a nuclear bomb as we speak? The “preliminary agreement formula” was signed on April 2. The final signing is set for June 30. If the Mullahs can talk their scientists into working overtime for a mere three months, they might be able to finish at least one bomb by June 30!!
BENJAMIN NETANYAHU’S POINT OF VIEW
Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who lives 6,000 miles closer to Iran than Obama, declared, “I think this is a dream deal for Iran and it’s a nightmare deal for the world.” Netanyahu told NBC’s Meet the Press, “Such a deal does not block Iran’s path to the bomb,” he said. “Such a deal paves Iran’s path to the bomb.” “They’re getting a free path to the bomb.”
Speaking to CNN, the Israeli prime minister said the deal will not roll back Iran’s nuclear program. The deal “keeps Iran’s vast nuclear infrastructure in place, not a single centrifuge destroyed, not a single nuclear facility shut down, including the underground facilities that they built illicitly. Thousands of centrifuges will keep spinning enriching uranium. That’s a very bad deal.”
“If a country vows to annihilate us and is working every day with conventional means and unconventional means [through its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas], if that country has a deal that paves its way to nuclear weapons, many nuclear weapons, it endangers our survival,” Netanyahu reiterated.
But the world believes Netanyahu is asking for the impossible: to force the radical Shiite Islamic state to abandon their nuclear operations and change their terrorist DNA under the pressure of even heavier world sanctions, won’t work.
Nevertheless, Netanyahu insists: “It is not [a decision] between the agreement or a military attack. There is a third way,” Netanyahu says. “Ratcheting up the pressure until you get a better deal. A deal that would roll back Iran’s nuclear infrastructure and one that ties the final lifting of restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program with a change in Iran’s behavior, namely that they stop their aggression in the region, that they stop their worldwide terrorism, and that they stop calling and working for the annihilation of Israel,” he said.

But Israel’s own former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy remarked that Netanyahu’s “demand from the Muslim world to recognize Israel’s right to exist is almost like asking them to change their religion.” According to Halevy, “In Islam they don’t recognize Israel’s right, nor do they recognize the right of other nations to exist.”
Still, reality must be faced. The new “agreement” will give Iran on-going billions to pour into arming Hezbollah and Hamas with unlimited weapons. Even in Iran’s economically weakened condition, it has armed Hezbollah with 150,000 projectiles, which exceeds all European armies combined! Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yaakov Amidror says that several thousand of these missiles can target any area in Israel. (www.jpost.com; link: goo.gl/aBQO3N)
IT COULD BE DONE – THROUGH SANCTIONS

Of course Iran could be contained – if the world, the UN and the U.S. only had the will. Led by the U.S., the west could ratchet up sanctions on Iran and threaten sanctions and military blockades against any nation that traded with Iran. Such sanctions would quickly bring Iran to its knees.
Sadly, this is not going to happen. The political will is not there. We have a declining post-Christian western civilization. Its vigor is waning, its people are war-weary and most importantly, its faith in God is now only a faint memory of a once God-fearing people.
IT COULD BE DONE – THROUGH U.S. MILITARY
U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter addressed the possibility of a military option against Iran. “We have the capability to shut down, set back and destroy the Iranian nuclear program and I believe the Iranians know that and understand that.”
While Iran has been busy working on nuclear weapons programs in underground labs and research facilities, the U.S. has produced an advanced “bigger punch” missile to reach those buried facilities. In October 2014, the Air Force successfully tested its new $15 million GBU-57 Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) weighing in at about 30,000 pounds with six times the heft of its earlier bunker buster, and with the ability to pierce through 200 feet below ground.
The Pentagon has spent more than $300 million for 20 GBU-57s. Guided by GPS, it is designed to remain intact as it drills through rock or reinforced concrete before setting off its 5,300-pound warhead.
“After several upgrades, the Air Force has let it be known that there’s an operational stockpile of the world’s most powerful non-nuclear bombs at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri. They’re not far from the B-2 bombers now ready to carry them 7,000 miles to Iran.” (www.time.com; link: goo.gl/Xtdhmj)
Former Israeli prime minister and most highly decorated soldier in Israel’s history, Ehud Barak told CNBC that if the U.S. chose the military option, “technically speaking, the Pentagon and the armed forces of America [have] extremely effective means of destroying the Iranian nuclear military program over a fraction of one night, in an operation which is much closer … to killing Osama Bin Laden” than a war such as the Iraq war. He advised the Americans to close the door and tell the Iranians to “dismantle or else.” (www.timesofisrael.com; link: goo.gl/1AGiV2)
But with the present U.S. administration, neither sanctions nor a military strike will be used to really end Iran’s nuclear threat.
DIFFICULT TO PUT HUMPTY DUMPTY BACK TOGETHER AGAIN
So unless the whole agreement falls apart, sanctions will be withdrawn, the economy of Iran will mushroom, and the construction of a profusion of new secret operations in hidden places will proliferate to create their bombs. Industrial establishments throughout the world, but especially in Europe and Russia, are “dying” to flood Iran with their investments which will reap incalculable revenues.
Obama’s promises to simply re-impose sanctions on Iran if the Islamic Republic cheats, is nothing more than pie in the sky. International corporations must plan years ahead in order to keep economically above water. After hundreds, if not thousands of corporations begin investing in Iran’s infrastructure, oil setups, and retail operations, the pressure to not destroy those investments will be greater than any democratic administration, not to speak of the Muslim-dominated UN, could resist.
A “snap back” of re-imposing sanctionswould devastate many international companies. It took years to put the existing sanctions in place, and it would take many more years to repeat the process. (www. timesofisrael.com; link: goo.gl/9iI5zt)
It is troubling to note that Obama clearly understands this fact, but is barreling ahead with the agreement anyway.
And before we can say “Jack Robinson,” the sanctions are already peeling off. In this lawless world, no agreement will be kept. On April 13, Russian president Vladimir Putin brazenly lifted a ban on the delivery of S-300 long-range anti-missile systems to Iran – meant, of course, to give Iran the means to shoot down any attacks against its nuclear facilities.
Russia’s foreign minister cynically remarked that “in light of the progress in the nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers, there was no longer a need for the embargo!”
The S-300 is regarded as one of the most potent anti-aircraft missile systems currently fielded. Its radars have the ability to simultaneously track up to 100 targets while engaging up to 36 targets. Some versions have been fitted with a nuclear warhead.
Russia has also announced that it has begun trading wheat and other products for Iran’s oil. Israel’s defense minister Ya’alon laments that the Russia-Iran missile deal is a direct result of the agreement talks.
So much for the phased lifting of sanctions! Do you hear a peep out of anyone?
WHAT IRAN WILL DO
Instead, the games will continue. If such a deal does go through, (although it may not) Iran will spend its time creating exciting war games of hide-and-seek and cat-and-mouse. Iran is determined to do three things:
1. Get the sanctions lifted.
2. Build bombs.
3. Prepare the world for the return of the Mahdi (See next article).
In so doing Iran’s leaders will twist and turn faster than their centrifuges. They will tie up meetings in the UN with smiling faces, give assurances concerning misunderstandings and promise to “look into the questions brought up about failure to comply,” etc.
Iran is smart. And evil. It doesn’t really matter if there is an agreement or not. Iran will get the bomb. Part of Satan’s plan to destroy the world. A plan that the True Messiah will defeat.
