God is great. His will be done (aloha snackbar). This is your Sunday Sermonette.
The tragic accident at the Iranian Natanz nuclear weapons material production facility may have set their ambitions toward making bombs to wipe out Saudi Arabia, Israel and the US back many years. Sure, the imams and ayatollahs will be screaming “Death to America” but it will be with a lot less confidence of pulling it off in any meaningful way.
A major explosion took place, destroying nearly three-quarters of the main centrifuge assembly hall, generating a fire that blackened a major portion of the building, the blackening visible where the roof had been blown away by the explosion.
High-resolution commercial satellite imagery shows that the Iran Centrifuge Assembly Center (ICAC) at the Natanz Enrichment Site has suffered significant, extensive, and likely irreparable damage to its main assembly hall section. This new facility, inaugurated in 2018, was critical to the mass production of advanced centrifuges, in particular the assembly of rotor assemblies, the rapidly spinning part of the centrifuge and its most crucial component.
With the Iranian economy in a shambles and sanctions from the US and the civilized world (which doesn’t include China, North Korea and Pakistan) hurting their industrial capacity, there is a real question of whether Iranian scientists will be able to bounce back from this accident and pursue their dreams of nuking (or blackmailing) other countries. Iran was beloved to Barack Hussein Obama and this set back should also be included in the Obama Presidential Library and monument as sort of a footnote to the triumph of The nuclear deal, flying $150 billion and another $1.8 billion in dangeld to the mullahs to fund the nuclear program and their terrorist ambitions. Yes, actual cash carried out in barrels, palates, and in boxes from airplanes.
Other than taking credit for selling many tens of millions of firearms and billions of rounds of ammunition into private hands in America, the Iran Nuclear Deal is about all that the former president can point to by way of achievement. (Yes, it can be argued that his eight years in office also helped President Donald Trump get elected, and Hillary defeated which was a great achievement).
Now with this tragic accidental explosion, even Obama’s dream of promoting an Iran with nuclear weapons may be on the slag heap of history. Yes, it’s curious how the accident occurred just where it would hurt them worst, but who can argue with Allah?
