Iran Nuclear/Test Obama-XVI
Two weeks before the 44th President visited the Middle Kingdom, two US government officials made their trip to Beijing on a “special mission,” according to the Japan Times (27 November 2009). Two officials: Dennis Ross and Jeffrey Bader, both senior officials in the National Security Council, informed the Chinese leaders that Israel could bomb Iran, which is going to have the nuclear bombs, and the US government cannot stop the reaction of Israel. If Iran had the nuclear bombs, other states, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Egypt, could start their own nuclear programs. Then, eventually, Japan might be able to have the nuclear bombs. The US government asked Beijing to back up the resolution by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Interestingly, by the end of November, IAEA passed the resolution against Iran’s nuclear program backed by both China and Russia.
