A motive is a need or desire that causes a person to act or speak. The biblical example of Judas, shows how dangerous it is if our motives do not match our words. When this incident took place John probably did not know Judas was a thief. When Judas said this, it sounded good and maybe even right to John.
Overview[ edit ] In Septemberthe IAEA Board of Governors, in a rare non-consensus decision with 12 abstentions,  recalled a previous Iranian "policy of concealment" regarding its enrichment program  and found that Iran had violated its NPT Safeguards Agreement.
Iran's representative to the UN argued that the sanctions compelled Iran to abandon its rights under the NPT to peaceful nuclear technology. His irresponsible attitude of sticking his head in the sand over Iran's nuclear programme should lead to his impeachment.
For its part in the conflict-ridden Middle East, Israel is a member of the IAEA, but it is not itself a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and is widely believed to currently be the only nuclear-armed state in the region. Fueled by high oil prices in the s, Iran sought to purchase large-scale nuclear facilities from Western suppliers in order to develop nuclear power and fuel-cycle facilities with both civilian and potential military applications.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeiniwhose revolution displaced the shah's monarchy in and ruled the newly established Islamic Republic of Iran until his death inplaced little emphasis on nuclear weapons development because it was viewed as a suspicious western innovation.
According to a strategic dossier from International Institute for Strategic StudiesIran turned away from Western suppliers and obtained nuclear assistance from Russian and China in a number of key areas, including uranium mining, milling and conversion, as well as technology for heavy-water research reactors.
The s also saw Iran expand its furtive nuclear research into conversion, enrichment and plutonium separation. Khan network, Iran was able to begin the construction of pilot-scale and industrial-scale enrichment facilities at Natanz around There are various estimates of when Iran might be able to produce a nuclear weapon, should it choose to do so: A assessment by the International Institute for Strategic Studies concluded "if Iran threw caution to the wind, and sought a nuclear weapon capability as quickly as possible without regard for international reaction, it might be able to produce enough HEU for a single nuclear weapon by the end of this decade", assuming no technical problems.
The report concludes, however, that it is unlikely that Iran would flatly ignore international reactions and develop nuclear weapons anyway.
That day is still 2—3 years away at the earliest. The new estimate says that the enrichment program could still provide Iran with enough raw material to produce a nuclear weapon sometime by the middle of next decade, but that intelligence agencies "do not know whether it currently intends to develop nuclear weapons" at some future date.
Russia has said there was no proof Iran has ever run a nuclear weapons program. Director of National Intelligence said in February that Iran would not realistically be able to a get a nuclear weapon untilif it chose to develop one.
German, French, and British intelligence say that under a worst-case scenario it would take Iran a minimum of 18 months to develop a nuclear weapon if it chose to build one, and it would have to first purify its uranium and weaponize its uranium. His claim was criticized by former chief U.
On 6 Marchthe IAEA Secretariat reported that "the Agency has not seen indications of diversion of nuclear material to nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices Iran furnished the IAEA with copies, claiming not to have used the information for weapons work, which it had obtained along with other technology and parts in and the mids.
On 18 DecemberIran voluntarily signed, but did not ratify or bring into force, an Additional Protocol that allows IAEA inspectors access to individuals, documentation relating to procurement, dual-use equipmentcertain military-owned workshops, and research and development locations.
The IAEA described this as a "significant step forward". While the IAEA has been unable to verify some "important aspects" regarding the nature and scope of Iran's nuclear work, the agency and Iranian officials agreed on a plan to resolve all outstanding issues, Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei said at the time.
He went on to note that "all the intelligence services" agree with this assessment and that he wanted to "get people away from the idea that Iran will be a threat from tomorrow, and that we are faced right now with the issue of whether Iran should be bombed or allowed to have the bomb".
Have we seen an active weaponization program? If there is actual evidence, ElBaradei said he would welcome seeing it. However, Iran has ignored the demands of the UN Security council, and has continued to enrich uranium in the past year. The IAEA is not able to conclusively confirm that Iran isn't currently enriching uranium for military purposes, as its inspections have been restricted to workshops previously declared as part of the civilian uranium enrichment program, and requests for access to certain military workshops have been denied; the report noted that "As a result, the agency's knowledge about Iran's current nuclear program is diminishing".
The report also confirmed that Iran now possesses centrifuges, a fold increase over the past year, though the feed rate is below the maximum for a facility of this design. Data regarding the P-2 centrifuge, which Ahmadinejad has claimed will quadruple production of enriched uranium, was provided only several days before the report was published; the IAEA plan to discuss this issue further in December.multilateral cooperation with regards to the free movement of labor emerges.
I then offer an alternative model, which highlights bargaining between the countries of origin and those of destination. Instead, as noted by the development organization, the South Centre, Other factors were the timing of Japan’s disbursements to multilateral organisations and loan repayments from Asian countries that have recovered from the Asian financial and it underlines the need for developing countries to make efforts on a range of fronts.
Keep Your Motives Right! If they are up front where people can see them then they will be faithful and appear spiritual. Your church or organization will go forward quicker if you test those you work with before you promote them to a responsibility on your team.
