Tehran claims, underground site at Fordo now a ‘medical research facility’
Iran has deployed the Russian-made S-300 missile system to fortify its underground nuclear facility at Fordo. Tehran’s decision to deploy the missile system at the site should set alarm bells ringing for the Obama administration. Prior to the Nuclear Deal, the installation at Fordo was used by Iran to enrich Uranium, vital component for building a nuclear bomb. The enrichment process was to be halted at the location under the Obama-sponsored agreement. According the deal, Iran was required to repurpose the centrifuges at Fordo and turn one of its major nuclear installation into a ‘medical research facility’, dedicated to ‘medical imaging’.
Deploying missile system that fires rockets twice as big as the average patriot missiles, makes Iran’s Fordo clearly the best protected ‘medical facility’ in the world.
For those waiting to hear the thunderous sound of that ‘snap back’ promised by President Obama in the run-up the Iran Deal — please don’t hold your breath.
In July, Russia’s state-run news agency TASS confirmed the delivery of S-300 missile system to Iran. Parts of the Russia missile system were also on display at a military parade in Tehran on July 17. reports:
Iran has deployed a Russian-made S-300 air defense system around its underground Fordo nuclear facility, state TV reported.
Video footage posted late Sunday on state TV’s website showed trucks arriving at the site and missile launchers being aimed skyward. It did not say whether the system was fully operational. (…)
The Fordo site, built at a depth of 90 meters (300 feet) below a mountain some 100 kilometers (60 miles) south of the capital, Tehran, was revealed by Western nations in 2009.
Critics of Iran’s nuclear program pointed to Fordo as further proof of Tehran’s intention to secretly develop nuclear weapons. Iran insists it has never sought nuclear arms, and says the security around the site is intended to protect it from U.S. or Israeli airstrikes.
Iran reportedly agreed to pay $1 billion for the shipment of this latest Russian missile system. Part of Iran’s $100 billion windfall from Obama-Kerry Nuclear Deal is now financing the fortification of Tehran’s nuclear sites.
Iran’s latest military build-up shows that the Mullah Regime is preparing for a showdown with the United States. On Monday, Iran inaugurated a new radar system designed to detect radar-evading U.S. planes like the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, Global Hawks and Predator drones.
Iran’s 77 year-old theocratic despot, Ali Khamenei — whom President Obama ever so reverently calls the “Supreme Leader” — can still be seen every Friday at Tehran’s central mosque preforming his 70s-hit “Death to America”.
President Obama might consider the Iran Deal as our ‘best chance to peace’ that magically, as he puts it, “cuts off all of Iran’s pathways to a bomb”. However, Iranian Regime has neither put aside its sworn animosity to the United States, nor given up on its ambitions to acquire a nuclear bomb. Worse still, Iran is not even making an efforts to cover its tracks and Obama administration couldn’t be bothered to notice.
