Truth about Iran and it's Nuclear technology

Iran is a signatory of the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and has had over 3000 surprise inspections that resulted in discovery of no nuclear weapons in the country. US allies, Pakistan, India (my country) and Israel are not members of NPT and unlike Iran, are all armed with nuclear weapons. No sanctions or threats are made against them. 

According to reports on the internet from independent press, Iranian nuclear technology for industrial grade processing of Uranium is about 5 to 10 years away. Iran has never possessed or used Atomic weapons and for that matter, the only country in the world that has ever used an Atomic Bomb, that too on civilian targets (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) is the US. Yet, no one seems to call that a war crime. Thousands of people had died, their homes and cities destroyed. Even today, these cities carry ripples of the inhuman attack that US ordered against Japan.

As for the threat from Iran that the US government so much parades about in the media, Iran has neither attacked, invaded nor made war on another country for over two centuries. It has not used any sort of chemical weapons against Iraq even when the latter used Weapons of Mass Destruction (supplied by the U.S.) including chemical warfare against Iran in its 8 year war starting September 1980 to August 1988.
The Iran-Iraq war, Picture Courtesy, LIFE.
Now, various US administrations on the other hand have been at war, bombed, strafed, organized a coup, etc. in at least 20 countries over the last 60 years. Iran does not possess the technology to deliver even a conventional weapon to Europe. Iran's military budget is $5b a year, less than 1/100th of Pentagon's spending and about 1/100th of what the US has already spent in Iraq. 

So much for American diplomacy and major media bullshit that people believe to be true about Iran. You need to watch this video to understand what is really going on,
