Iran Prepares for Nuclear War (Daniel 8:4)

The report’s leak comes after Donald Trump has repeatedly branded the Iran nuclear deal, signed under his predecessor Barack Obama, a “very bad deal”.The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, also know as the Iran nuclear deal, is an agreement by Tehran to eliminate its stockpile of medium-enriched uranium – an ingredient used to make nuclear weapons.

In October last year, President Trump warned he was close to tearing up the deal adding Iran was violating the “spirit” of the deal.

At the time the US President said: “We’ll see what phase two is. It might be a total termination. That’s a very real possibility.

“I’m tired of being taken advantage of as a nation.”

Iran has fired at least 23 ballistic missiles – 15 of which are said to be nuke-capable
Now a report by the Foundation for Defence of Democracies (FfDD) reveals Iran fired around 23 missiles since it signed the deal. 

The FfDD report said: “Out of all the ballistic missiles Iran fired in 2017, only four or five missiles can be considered nuclear-capable.

“In 2016, Iran fired 10 to 11 missiles that can be considered nuclear-capable.”

“It is highly likely that the administration’s threat intimidated Tehran, altering its flight-testing calculus.”

According to the report’s author, Behnam Ben Taleblu, a senior Iran analyst at the foundation, researchers “identified as many as 23 ballistic missile launches by Iran since the conclusion of the July 2015 nuclear deal”.

The report also cited an Iranian outlet which quoted Tehran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps complaining of test delays over concerns of a potential response by the US.Yesterday the Doomsday Clock time was moved 30 seconds closer to midnight as experts warn humanity edges towards destroying itself with “nuclear weapons taking centre stage”.

The clock now stands at two minutes to midnight following a year of increasing nuclear war threats and as climate change worsened.

The metaphorical clock, created by The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, assesses the danger of apocalypse based on the threats such as nuclear Armageddon, bioterrorism, climate change and other catastrophes.

It is now the closest it has been to midnight since 1953 when it was also two minutes to midnight – the year hydrogen bombs were being tested for the US and Soviet Union.The scientists said is the “closest to the symbolic point of annihilation that the Clock has been since 1953 at the height of the Cold War”.

The FfDD report comes as the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson travelled to Europe to meet with his counterparts.

State Department officials said other US officials have already begun Iran talks in Europe.

Speaking after a meeting with Mr Tillerson, Boris Johnson said: “I’d say there was a pretty wide measure of agreement on the European side about the need to look at what Iran is doing on the ballistic missile front and to work out what we can do collectively to constrain that activity and to make a big difference there.” 

The Iran nuclear deal which was signed by Tehran was also agreed with the P5+1 which is the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council—China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States plus Germany and the European Union.
