Allah reports that it's very likely that Iran does not have
3,000 centrifuges installed and running, and they are very possibly not
mass-enriching uranium at this time.
Shocked? Not me—I said basically the same thing yesterday
(see the second paragraph under the large photograph).
You see, to dictatorial regimes, appearance is more important than reality
. Internationally, yes, but it's more
important internally—to create a picture of governmental strength and resolve
which helps to keep the local citizens under the illusion
that the ruling regime is undefeatable, and thus discourage any movement to overthrow the dictatorship.
Yes, the "ruling regime" as in the "Islamic Revolution."
Why do you think North Korea does not allow any foreign media
to broadcast within their borders? Or the "peaceful" Islamic Revolution in Iran, for that matter
? The same condition existed in the former Soviet Union
, though the citizens would always find creative ways around the media restrictions.
By my theory, Ahmadinejad set up the whole press event for internal
publicity, nothing more. I think when we dig deeper, we'll find that there is no
operational nuclear capacity there, merely the illusion
thereof, created to appease the citizens of the Islamic Revolution, and to keep the mullahs who run the country in power. I'm glad to see, via Allah, some confirmation of this suspicion. I can only hope that I'll continue to be right here—the mere thought
of a nuclear mullah-ocracy is definitely unthinkable.
