Macron: Iran should never, ever possess a nuclear weapon

In a speech before the joint houses of the US Congress, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that Iran must never possess a nuclear weapon – not in 5 years, not in 10 years – never! He went on to say that even if the US abandoned the 2015 nuclear pact with Iran, France would not – until “something more substantial replaced it.” On this he and President Trump were working, he said. Macron added that the nuclear issue must not lead to another Middle East war and called for respect for the sovereignty of all its nations, including Iran. He also stressed that the US and France must keep their troops in Syrian to continue fighting terrorists.  The speech, in which he enlarged at length on joint US-French values and shared history, was frequently punctuated by standing ovations – although only one side of the chamber cheered when the French president condemned fake news as a threat to democracy. President Macron was the first world leader to pay a state visit to the US and address Congress in the Trump presidency.

    The real Tehran problem is the complete absence of good neutrons jumping here and there. Imagine this: not even a pale glow of radioactivity in the Enqelab Square, even worst, the ayatollah palace is so much cool to the touch, one can not boil an egg on its roof.

    Hey, dhimmis of the Earth, listen here!

    A fatwa was given by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the loved Supreme Leader of Iran, against the acquisition, development and use of nuclear weapons, all this since way back in mid-1990. All transgressors are to be ashamed by placing their picture with the bold inscription “stupid guy, got cut” on the first page of the Tehran Times newspaper. But until now they got lucky, none was found, which is to say there is no activity related with acquisition, development, or use of nuclear weapons in the peaceful Iran.

    The West used also to talk a lot about some “centrifuges”, making the Supreme Leader to laugh on the count of their childish ignorance. Iran has no centrifuges, point! There are some rotary devices, but those are not called centrifuges in Iran. And are used only on a few isotopes, not many.

    Given that Iran has not attacked another country in over 200 years and France has attacked a few recently, it is France whose Nukes should be taken away from them.
