In a world gripped by escalating tensions, a pivotal question hangs heavy: “US and Iran: Are We on the Brink of Nuclear War?” The recent passage of House Resolution 559 by the US House of Representatives has ignited global concerns. This resolution unequivocally states that a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is intolerable to the US, leading to a flurry of questions. Why this sudden urgency? Is Iran’s uranium enrichment truly a threat, or is there more to the story?
Let’s rewind to last Wednesday, a day that marked a significant turn of events in the ongoing tensions between the United States and Iran. The US House of Representatives dropped a bombshell by passing House Resolution 559. This resolution boldly declares that a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is absolutely off the table. But here’s the kicker – the resolution doesn’t just stop there. It practically shouts from the rooftops that the US is willing to pull out all the stops, including military action, to prevent Iran from getting their hands on nuclear weapons. It declares a firm policy: a nuclear Islamic Republic of Iran is not acceptable.
But why is the US so deeply concerned about Iran’s nuclear ambitions? A question that lingers in the minds of many. Iran’s enrichment of uranium has raised alarms, with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirming in May that Iran continues to enrich uranium to 60% purity. The resolution, however, goes a step further, citing IAEA investigators who found uranium particles enriched to a staggering 83.7% in January. A discrepancy that makes us pause, questioning the accuracy of the information at hand.
You see, the document states that in January 2023, IAEA Director General Rafeal Grossi said that “One thing is true that they have amassed enough nuclear material for several nuclear weapons.”
Now, keep these dates in mind. They say they already knew this in January and that’s how long the US have been knowing this since January. But, when Rafael Grossi discussed this issue in March 2023, he went to Iran and gave a press conference where he was specifically asked about Iran enriching uranium to 60% and his answer was very much of “That’s okay.”
In March 2023, Grossi visited Iran and when questioned about Iran’s enrichment at 60%, Grossi surprisingly shrugged off concerns, stating that Iran doesn’t need to explain itself to the US. A statement that contradicts the claims made in the House Resolution, raising suspicions about the motives behind the escalating tensions.
So if he is not worried then why is the Congress? So, is it possible that the US is setting a stage for the war with Iran based on a false flag?
Fast forward to the recently escalated tensions between Iran and the US, it might be that Putin rubbed salt on Biden’s wounds.
Adding fuel to the fire, the US passed not one, but three threats to Iran in a single day. Pentagon Press Secretary Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder expressed concerns about attacks on US and coalition forces by Iranian proxy forces, indicating a potential escalation in the near future. The second threat came from the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken who reinforced the message, emphasizing that the US would defend its personnel swiftly and decisively if attacked. The third threat came from the National Security Council’s Spokesman, John Kirby, echoing the sentiment, highlighting Iran’s alleged complicity in the situation.
For the unaware, these threats came soon after Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Tehran, strengthening ties between Russia and Iran.
“We are aiming at an entire range of planned activities, despite opposition from the United States and its Western allies,” Shoigu said.
“Sanctions pressure on Russia and Iran shows its futility, while Russian-Iranian interaction is reaching a new level.”
Shoigu met Iran’s top security official, Ali Akbar Ahmadian, on Wednesday which is exactly the day when US passed three threats to Iran in a single day.
Russia and Iran talked about a wide range of topics, especially the developments in the Caucasus region. Russia’s minister of defense also visited the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Aerospace Force on Wednesday. He met the head of the Aerospace Force, Amirali Hajizadeh, and Iran’s drones, missile and air defense systems were displayed to him.
Despite opposition from the Western world, Russia and Iran are forging ahead with planned activities, irking the US further. This growing alliance appears to be a cause for concern in Washington, possibly prompting the US to consider drastic measures, including the possibility of war with Iran.
As we navigate through these complex developments, one question remains: Are we indeed on the brink of a nuclear war between the US and Iran? With Iran and Russia striking up an alliance, the US seems less than thrilled. It looks like Uncle Sam might be gearing up for a brawl.
