Iran — Uranium Enrichment and War

  • The Coronavirus pandemic is not stopping Rouhani to announce the increase of the enriched uranium to the 20%.
  • Iran accusing Israel of the possible false flag attack against the US military base in the Iraq.
  • The Iran military is on the heightened alert.
  • Iran's Rouhani issued Trump a death threat.

The Iran addressed the Coronavirus pandemic this weekend during the National Committee meeting. The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani  said: “Coronavirus infection is not a common disease, but a historic test for the peoples and leaders of the world.”

The current President of Iran is Hassan Rouhani, assumed office on 3 August 2013, after the 2013 Iranian presidential election. He succeeded Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who served 8 years in office from 2005 to 2013. Rouhani won re-election in the 2017 presidential election.

“Fortunately, among all the countries affected by the Covid-19 epidemic, the countries whose populations have been more cooperative in adhering to health principles and trusting their leaders have had the most success.”

Additionally, Rouhani stated “The Supreme Leader of the revolution from the very beginning emphasized the observance of health protocols and not only obliged everyone to obey the law, but he himself observed the protocols more than others, so that his behavior served as a model for the whole country.”

He also mentioned, the US and the EU is failing the fight against the Covid-19, as the numbers continue to rise. Nevertheless, Iran is closed country, the US had a lot of issues last year and the divide within.

The 2020 was extra tough for the US, due to the civil rights protests and the tumultuous presidential election.

Furthermore, the Coronavirus pandemic is not stopping Rouhani to announce the increase of the enriched uranium to the 20%. The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

The IAEA is the world’s centre for cooperation in the nuclear field and seeks to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technologies.

Rouhani sent a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency notifying of the new increase. The letter states, that it is a reminder that the Iranian parliament passed a bill calling on the government to take the steps necessary, since the UK, France and Germany refused to protect the Iranian interests.

Hence, it means that  Iran’s withdrawal from the NPT (Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons), which allows the enrichment of uranium to 19%.

The US Presidential Election is an ongoing continuous election. This week on January 6th, the Electoral College counting of ballots is expected in a joint session of Congress. Adding to the difficulty, are more lawsuits over fraud, doubles sets of electors from multiple states and President Trump has called for his supporter to come to Washington for a Wild Protest on the 5th and 6th.

It is highly likely the Iran wants to put a lot of pressure on the US during the Presidential election process. As a domino effect, it is also automatically puts pressure on the UK, France and Germany.

There are also concerns about US and Iran tensions. The Iran military is on the high alert. It should be noted, January 3 is the anniversary of the General Qasem Sulemani murder.

The Pentagon officials claim that Iran has been moving short range ballistic missiles to Iraq.

In the retaliation, the Iranians fired multitude number of missiles at  the American targets in Iraq. The operation was called “Martyr Suleimani”. The US said there were no casualties and minimal damage to the military bases.

Moreover, Iran posted on Twitter that Israel will commit the false flag attacks against the US base in the Iraq and blame Iran.

Iran’s Rouhani issued Trump a death threat stating: ‘In a few days, the life of this criminal will end’

Nevertheless, the situation between the US and Iran is critical.

Overall, the tensions in the Middle East is a concern, not just for the US but also for the European Union. The question ponders, if Russia would interfere.
