where inescapable facts meet unavoidable conclusions

how to make qom go “boom”

Were you surprised by the revelation that Iran had built a second nuclear enrichment facility in secret?  Really?  Would you be interested in buying a bridge?

There’s nothing good that can possibly occur if a country run by crazed Islamists obtains the means to construct and deploy nuclear weapons.  Nothing.

And there’s also not a lot – short of nuking the f***ers – that is likely to cause the regime to change course.

Except for one thing.

End our dependency on fossil energy and they will become irrelevant in terms our national interests – and those of our allies.

In fact, there is nothing we could possibly do that would alter the significance of the Middle East – and the position it occupies as a focus of our national concerns – than to make it a non-factor in our economy.

Without a product to supply that occupies a position of such seemingly irreplaceable need in our lives, Iran and its neighbors will revert to a status of relative insignificance.

And they will no longer have the economic means to develop weapons – or sustain the forces required to be players on the global stage.

An alternative energy economy will cause heads – and economies – to implode from Qom to Mecca.

The sooner the faster.

    • I wouldn’t trust the UN to provide competent crossing guards for a neighborhood elementary school, let alone security analysis for nuclear proliferation. If we hadn’t told Mohamed el Kabong that the Iranians had a second enrichment site, he’d still be walking around with the bag they pulled over his head tied neatly under his chin.

      • The problem is, there is no alternative to the UN. The UN is the agency that has spearheaded international analysis of climate change science.

        Let’s think about climate change refugees for a minute. Forget about national borders. How many people in Indiana and Ohio are going to open their doors to the US citizens from Texas, Florida, Louisiana, California and Arizona who have no homes thanks to flooding, hurricanes and drought? Ha ha! Not many, I suspect.

      • I think you are missing the point of my post. If we (and Europe, and China, and Japan and . . . ) deploy a “free energy” based infrastructure by, say, 2015, what happens to Iran and Saudia Arabia and Venezuela and the other oil producing countries? How much more Tupperware will the world need in 2016? Iran’s economy will revert to exporting area rugs and pistachio nuts. After they pay for the essentials, they won’t have enough left over to sweep their streets and run a free circus. In other words, solving climate extinction solves a big bunch of other problems, not the least of which are many of the major perceived national security threats we currently face.
