Tehran to Pyongyang: Trade oil for nuke help

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

Maybe we should have expected this. Who better for the Iranians to buy nuke material and information from then the North Koreans? They need the oil and energy solutions and Iran wants the ability to put nukes in the hands of their deranged leader. What a world this has become.

Western intelligence sources, cited in yesterday’s edition of Der Spiegel, say Iran has asked North Korea for assistance with its nuclear missile program in exchange for oil and natural gas.
According to the German daily, a senior Iranian official visited Pyongyang in October to tender the offer. While North Korea’s response to the deal was unclear, revelation of Tehran’s outreach fuels further suspicion Iran is attempting to develop nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
Last week, the U.N.’s atomic watchdog agency revealed that Iran had received what appeared to be blueprints for the core of a nuclear warhead in 1987 through the network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan, father of Pakistan’s nuclear program. During the same week, Tehran announced it had begun converting a second batch of uranium into gas, a necessary step toward enrichment for generation of electricity or development of a nuclear bomb.

As WorldNetDaily has previously reported, Tehran is getting secret help for its Shahib 3 missile program from former Russian military personnel who are acting as go-betweens on a deal struck in 2003 between North Korea and Iran.

Of course the first thing they will do with their nukes is to flip one at Israel. But what about the palestinians, you might ask? Since when has the arab world ever cared about the palis past wanting them for cannon fodder?
I hope the Lord hurries back.

Luke 1:26-38 New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31 You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34″How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. 37 For nothing is impossible with God.”

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.
