I have been very concerned for a long time that Iran has been covertly working on a nuclear weapons program that is soon to produce nuclear bombs. In fact, it is a possibility that Iran may already have acquired or covertly produced some nuclear bombs. As I warned America on Oct. 6, 2011, on Michael Tobin’s inaugural FoxNews.com/live show, Iran could disguise a nuclear bomb by putting it inside of a Coke machine, and easily transport it through “Iran’s Pipeline to America”, the Iran/Venezuela/Mexico connection. Google “Iran’s Mystery Flight to Venezuela” to see how Iran could bring one, or several, nuclear bombs to Venezuela via the Iran Air Boeing 747 jumbo jet that lands every two weeks in the Caracas, Venezuela airport, and is quickly hustled off to a secluded part of the airport where it is unloaded by Venezuelan security forces who do not allow anyone to come into the secure area. Former Director of the CIA Michael Hayden has expressed his concern about the flight, as has Congressman Eliot Engle, because although our CIA sees the plane landing every two weeks, they have no idea what is being unloaded off that plane.
Then bombs could be given to the numerous Hezbollah and Iranian Revolutionary Guards that infest Venezuela, thanks to Hugo Chavez’s close ties with Ahmadinejad of Iran. They could in turn smuggle it up through the numerous Hezbollah that have infiltrated South America, all the way to Mexico to the Hezbollah who work closely with the Mexican drug cartels. FBI Director Robert Mueller has warned Congress that Hezbollah has now come into the United States through the Mexican border, and there are indications, as Congresswoman Sue Myrick has pointed out, that Hezbollah may well be helping the drug smugglers dig their tunnels under the Mexican border. Our Border Security finds about 18 tunnels per year, and blows them up, but the drug smugglers always build more, some of them big enough, as Anderson Cooper showed on CNN, to drive a small truck through.
Once through the Mexican border, the bombs could be loaded into vans and driven to New York and Washington and other cities, and then detonated at a time of Iran’s choosing, and Iran would blame it on al Qaeda. Does this sound alarmist? What if someone had told you three weeks before 9/11 that the World Trade Center would soon be destroyed, and the Pentagon attacked. Would you have called him an alarmist? To me, it seems really amazing that 10 years after America was attacked by Islamist radicals on 9/11, that our borders are still not secure, and that Iran can essentially bring anything it wants to through that porous Mexican border!
And Iran is much closer to getting a nuclear weapon than many people realize. As Ambassador John Bolton has said, Iran in August of 2011, just a few months ago, moved its 20 percent enriched uranium (enough, if enriched further, to make one nuclear bomb) and its 3 percent enriched uranium (enough to make six or seven nuclear bombs) to its formerly secret underground site at Fordo, near the Holy City of Qom, and it is not allowing IAEA weapons inspectors in the site. It only takes two months to enrich the 20 percent enriched uranium further to weapons grade 90 percent and only six months to enrich the 3 to 20 percent and then to 90 percent also. So Iran could possibly have several nuclear bombs very soon. Indeed, I fear they may have acquired or covertly produced some nuclear bombs already.
And the leaders of Iran have already produced a video documentary, titled “The Coming is Upon Us” where they say the coming of their messiah, the “12th Imam” or “Mahdi,” is soon to happen, where Iran will usher in the coming of the Mahdi by killing millions of “infidels” in America and Israel with nuclear weapons. Does this seem hard to believe? Was it hard to believe Hitler when he talked of world domination, and built a war machine to try to accomplish his goal? Winston Churchill warned the world to stop Hitler before he got big. Unfortunately, the world did not listen to Winston Churchill, and waited until Hitler got big, and then 60 million people had to die to stop him. If we let Iran get big, and get nuclear weapons, millions more people will have to die to stop Iran.
