Iran is suspending the Arak facility because they are concentrating their efforts in enrichment right where they are(not because of any other reason. They know that they are covering their asses deep inside the mountain that will soon be blasted to the core by Israel and the west and the sooner the better!

Am I the only person on the planet concerned about a nuclear accident at that Iranian nuclear facility spewing deadly radiation and fallout on the region? I really doubt the Iranians are experienced enough to properly build or safely operate a nuclear reactor. Any possible nuclear event would happen before any nuclear weapon is built.
Imagine you are a country that is being denied imports because you are not bowing to the will of a few countries including your enemy Israel. Would you not want to be able to process your own fuel for your nuclear power plant? These are not dogs, these are people, and they have rights and needs just like any other people. It is only a matter of time until Israel decides they want Iranian oil and they try to take it and use their 300 nuclear weapons as black mail. I totally understand Iran trying to build a nuclear weapon, especially after the US attacked Iraq twice and occupied the country for 10 years.

“(Reuters) – Israel on Saturday rejected as “flawed and hypocritical” a declaration by signatories of a global anti-nuclear arms treaty that urged it to sign the pact and make its atomic facilities subject to U.N. inspections.”

So is the world going to put sanctions on Israel like it did Iran?
Just wondering.

Why is Iran’s nuclear program such a concern while Pakistan’s is not?
Like Iran, Parkistan is overtly Muslim and harbors strong anti-Western sentiment. Pakitan is also home to radicals, fanatic fundamentalists and terrorist organizations like the Taliban. Pakistan provided refuge for years for Osama Bin Laden close to major military base, and when he was elimianted all the government said was “oh, we didn’t know.”

Again, why is the focus only on Iran? Pakistan is every bit as much a concern. And Pakistan already has the “bomb” and missles ot dlivert them.

@Anthonykovic:

Of course, the answer is that the question of Iranian nukes is not the real motivation for the incessant US/Europe/Israel economic, undercover assassination, and political blackballing of Iran. Rather, the problem with Iran is their refusal to subjugate their rightful roles in the ME to the West. The problem for Iran is that they want freedom and self-determination in their own country. They want a level playing field. Their leaders are not just the usual Western shills.

Of course, Pakistan nukes actually exist, and manifestly are much more dangerous than anything contemplated in Iran. Clearly, Iran has great self-control, is rapidly developing technically, and is much too well-organized to want to subject itself to Western nuclear holocaust, and it that sense its acquisition of nuclear capabilities is stabilizing. On the other hand, particularly with our sovereignty violating and vicious drone attacks, we are driving Pakistan into political crisis, with what appear to be truly fanaticized tribal people ready to take over. Ignoring this is placing the West in great peril!

I am hoping that once Western people understand the perverted and dangerous plans of Western leaders (the 0.01 percent), they will throw the bastards out. Unfortunately, it may take a major Western debacle such as revolution in Pakistan or war with Iran, to get the Western guy on the street to wake up to the evil being done in his name.
