Biden talks show that Iran’s sanctions are illegal
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden recently acknowledged that Iran currently does not have a nuclear weapon. And while Iran is “a good way away” from developing one “all this bluster” is keeping heard.
During a vice presidential debate between Biden and Romney’s running mate Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, U.S vice President said that: “There is no weapon that the Iranians have at this point. Both the Israelis and we know — we’ll know if they start the process of building a weapon. So all this bluster I keep hearing, all this loose talk — what are they talking about?”
Biden’s speech is composed of two main talking points: Firstly, Iran currently does not have a nuclear weapon and secondly, once Iran hasstarted the process of making nuclear weapons, U.S and Israel will be realized.
The only interpretation of this statement is that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons now and it is far too long to build.
Meanwhile, Biden’s statement represents a mostly unnoticed, but dramatic, deviation from the administration’s line on Iran.
The Obama administration claims that Iran is in the process of developing nuclear weapons, and so has imposed its sanctions against Iran based on this unproven hypothesis.
However, recent Biden remarks are opposed to the claim and it demonstrates that imposed Sanctions have not any legal legitimacy.
Iranian people have suffered from economic sanctions and now they want to know why U.S, only based on a false claim, has made their life difficult, whereas one of the U.S highest officials indirectly confirms that currently Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons.
