THE recent incident that transpired in Iran’s nuclear facility proves right the warnings issued in the past years regarding the fragility of its security and safety systems. This raises serious concerns about how disastrous it would be for both human beings and the environment of the region if a serious accident occurs in this facility.
The Mullahs’ persistence on challenging the international community by continuing its nuclear program is in fact terrorism against humanity and human existence, not just a challenge or a peaceful program as claimed by the leaders of the peacock vanity in Iran.
There is no doubt that the admission of the Head of the Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi that, “The mysterious incident that occurred on Sunday morning at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility was intentional. It was an outrageous move and we condemn nuclear terrorism” affirms what all international organizations have been warning about.
In case of any accident, there is no doubt that its effect will be more devastating than Ukraine’s Chernobyl incident. That is because the Iranian facilities are old, not subject to the supervision of international organizations, and do not conform to acceptable scientific and legal standards.
For this reason, a nuclear agreement between Iran and the international community is no longer required based on the premise of submission to the international organization. Rather, what is required is a complete dismantling of this program under the supervision of the United Nations.
In addition, such an international agreement should also ensure the cessation of all Iranian research in this regard, especially since the policy pursued by the Mullahs regime for 41 years has been based on the principle of expansionism through terrorism force, and the stirring of sectarian and creedal strife in the region, which, in other words, is tantamount to another hundred years of war sought by this backward regime.
Undoubtedly, the first victim of the policies of the political prostitution regime that has prevailed for four decades is the Iranian people. It has reached the level where acceptance of its comeback to the international arena would mean acceptance of global terrorism, undermining of all agreements and treaties, and encouragement for other rogue states to practice this type of destructive policies.
In confirmation, we note that the current direct and indirect negotiations between the United States of America and Iran are ongoing in a vicious circle, as the two sides hardly reach any agreement until the Iranian negotiator imposes impossible conditions on his American counterpart that derails the talks.
Therefore, if the goal is to ensure some form of restriction on Iran’s nuclear program or ballistic missiles, it will be similar to the Munich Agreement in 1938, which allowed Hitler to commit the most horrific crimes against humanity. This will not be allowed not only by the countries of the region, but also the countries of the civilized world. Therefore, dismantling of terror reactors in Iran has become a necessity for all humanity.
