IRAN - Freedom is our fundamental right, not nuclear

In the event that an earthquake would occur in Iran and affect one or more of our nuclear power plants, known or hidden from the authorities, yt there a chance of avoiding the worst? What means do we have to control the risks facing such a scenario? The game of nuclear power in Iran is a power game. We have the example of Japan before our eyes, a country that has acquired the necessary experience in dealing with the consequences of seismic events, a strong country from a technological standpoint and also an exemplary discipline.

An explosion occurred at a nuclear plant following the main quake. Opponents of nuclear power plants in Japan represent a significant political force. They had previously denounced the risks of these plants, especially in the case of earthquakes (common in the region). And today, we realize the accuracy of their worries.

Companies that managed these plants we wanted to ensure that the damage was quite significant. They have lied so that dishonesty and corruption in Japan are very unpopular. Iran information on the earthquake in Japan are extremely rare in official media. This is also the case in the media close to the Iranian opposition, as if this disaster does not concern us and that nuclear Iran were immune from such a disaster.

While most risks in Iran are systematically ignored, it is impossible not to take them into account in the event of an earthquake, while all our regions are likely to experience an earthquake. The German authorities have said they would for example consider the security apparatus of the nuclear plant in Fukushima and establish new standards of alert and security to ensure their proper functioning in case of an incident, whatever .

Will they do the same thing in Iran? Are there this level of intelligence and such a sense of responsibility among the Iranian leadership? In a government where the head of state, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an engineer by training, believes it is possible to produce nuclear energy in the kitchen, experts or security officials, will they take into consideration the Explosion in Fukushima and adopt new attitudes to nuclear program? Iran, a country unable to produce cars according to international safety standards and where incompetence in terms of management is evident in the world, how can it go nuclear without incurring risks to its people? During the early years following the Islamic revolution in 1979, the government has linked its survival to the war.

And then, he has replaced the war by a new alternative: "Nuclear energy is our basic right". This policy has cost the country and a little more isolated internationally. The Islamic regime sees this nuclear race, one more way to deceive the people and abuse of national pride to complete its projects.

Alas, the Iranian opposition also seems to mute the potential risks of the nuclear program and did not comment. Disaster, we would all be responsible.
