    certainly not out of the woods yet, but this is at least a step in the right direction.

    I was going to post something similar.

    In my book "action speaks louder then words". What action is Iran doing. Stalling.

    Well, yes it is a step in the right direction but, the problem is that for the last decade, the international community has been trying diplomacy and talks with Iran. It hasn’t worked. Recent previous rounds of talks at Geneva and Istanbul failed too.

    Many have voiced their skepticism about these new talks.... will they work this time? will they not?

    Only time will tell and there is not much time left.

    Why is there not much time left?

    On-topic: Things talks will most likely not do anything unfortunately. The fact of the matter is that despite the US admitting (see this and this) that Iran is not using its nuclear energy program to develop a weapon, they are still most likely going to push for war and the US media is going to go along with it.

    We're not fighting a war, so as far as I'm concerned it's worked pretty well.

    I guess I don't understand...if Leon Panetta thinks Iran is not attempting to develop nuclear weapons, why are there sanctions, and why is there so much talk about attacking them? What am I missing?
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Basically they think that Iran is doing most of the hard work that would be necessary to create fissible material for a bomb, while not actively working on on the warhead itself. The problem is that it's relatively easy to build a warhead should they decide to move in that direction.

    Re: World Powers Agree to Resume Nuclear Talks With Iran

    Even if Iran does build nukes, why would we think that they'd use them on us? What possible benefit is there in fighting the United States and almost certainly being destroyed? No, the real targets of Iranian nukes would be their neighbors. Probably their Sunni neighbors first, even before Israel. Even Israel is probably protected under our shadow. Countries like Bangladesh, Jordan, Egypt, or Pakistan are the ones who really need to worry about Iranian nukes, not us.
