Las mentiras nucleares del Irán

Mohammad El-Baradei, director general del Organismo Internacional de la Energía Atómica (OIEA), está apremiando a su Junta de Gobernadores para que haga un último esfuerzo a fin de encontrar una solución diplomática para las ambiciones nucleares del Irán antes de enviar el caso al Consejo de Seguridad de las Naciones Unidas con vistas a la posible aplicación de sanciones. La decisión de remitir dicho caso al Consejo de Seguridad podría adoptarse en fecha tan temprana como el 24 de noviembre, cuando se reúna la Junta del OIEA para examinar "nuevos datos" descubiertos por los inspectores en el terreno.

Gracias a los inspectores del OIEA, ahora disponemos de un panorama bastante detallado del archipiélago nuclear del Irán… al menos de las instalaciones que el Gobierno iraní ha mostrado, porque se lo ha obligado a hacerlo. Sabemos que el Irán ha descubierto, extraído y fundido uranio natural, el componente básico de cualquier programa de enriquecimiento, sin decírselo al OIEA. Sabemos que el Irán construyó unas instalaciones en Isfahan para convertir concentrado de uranio en el gas hexafluoruro de uranio (UF6), materia prima para el enriquecimiento del uranio, sin haberlo notificado previamente al OIEA, como debería haber hecho.

También sabemos que el Irán construyó unas instalaciones subterráneas de enriquecimiento de uranio en Natanz, las protegió contra los ataques con cohetes y erigió edificios falsos en la superficie para ocultarlas de la vigilancia desde el cielo. Las autoridades no accedieron a abrir dichas instalaciones al OIEA hasta que se confirmó su existencia mediante imágenes obtenidas desde satélites comerciales y parece que eliminaron de las cámaras subterráneas el equipo instalado antes de la llegada de los inspectores. Una vez que entren en funcionamiento plenamente, dichas instalaciones permitirán al Irán dominar todo el ciclo del combustible nuclear.

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
