Incredibly, there are still some people who believe that Iran is not trying to build a bomb.

Germany and Turkey arrested seven suspected Iranian smugglers who were transporting materials for that country’s nuclear program from India and Germany, according to a UPI report about an article in the Turkish Haberturk newspaper.

The components were to be delivered to the Iranian nuclear facility in Arak, Iran.

According to the report, Turkey apprehended two of the suspects at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport. One was an Iranian with Turkish citizenship and the other was an Iranian, who was suspected of being one of the leaders of the operation.

Security officials also captured a trove of documents related to the operation.

Germany arrested five Iranians, according to the report.

All together it is estimated that the smugglers shipped 900 deliveries of nuclear material to Iran using front companies in Turkey. The search continues for others suspects.

This follows a report in February by The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS) that Iran was trying to smuggle magnet components for its nuclear program from China.


Editor's Note: What is stunning about this report is how little coverage it received by the mainstream media. The "usual suspects" in the media will be the first to trumpet how the West should approach the Iranian government (not the Persian people of Iran) as an equal in honest "negotiations," yet when Iranian operatives are caught proving that the regime is disingenuous to the total degree we get crickets...Honest people must start to effectively and actively rebel against the corrupt media complex...That means not buying their products, not tuning into their broadcasts and reaching out to the news show sponsors to express dismay, demanding that they fix the problem that their sales revenue dollars create...

They will build it because there are enough people who will sell anything just to have money to buy them power and attention

Be prepared for a war people, the West can't topple Iran without a big fight, so unless the West smartens up, and I mean THE GOVERNMENT, not so much the people of the west including Canada here, but really, as long as we pretend there's nothing amiss with our own rulers, then a war is surely gonna be down the road!

Doesn't it make you sick that us humans can't get it right after all these years! LOL

You're right, Janet. This administration is quite frightening with the way it handles threats like Iran, the Green Party, that really wanted help from the Obama administration, the support for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the appeasement. He's like the Neville Chaimberlain of our generation, and possibly worse.
