    Ever hear of a suicide bomber? What you think, they care about life, even their own people. Of course you try and make up a scenario to justify appeasement and let them have nuclear weapons, which in the hands of terrorists could destroy Israel. You think Iran could not give terrorists the "bomb" to do it's dirty work?

    Whats your take on " U.S. Officials Say Iran Has Agreed to Nuclear Talks "?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Obviously they wont, but the threat posed by an Iranian nuclear weapon actually has very little to do with whether or not Iran would actually launch a weapon at a target. Though this is certainly also a concern.

    My take is that the White House has already denied it. But what if it's true?

    What talks? The only thing Iran would want to talk about is lessening the crippling economic sanctions the west has imposed on the country. And, while they're talking? The U.S. would be dis-inclined to impose any further ones, thus talks work in Iran's favor and not the United States. In the meantime, Iran marches forward with its research and development. I'm not impressed. Even if it is true.

    If Iran and the US get into "talks," I hope the US sets the agenda. Where's the UN on this one? Why aren't the "talks" with them? Anyone see an Iraq in the making? I sure do.

    I'm not totally convinced that sanctions and pressure are incapable of yielding results, I just think it's extremely unlikely. If Iran wants to agree to remove its existing U-235 stockpiles for international management, to shut down many of its enrichment facilities, to dispose of all uranium enriched beyond 5%, and to submit to a large scale monitoring effort, then there is an opening to reduce sanctions and pressure. But I think Iran is committed to acquiring at minimum a protonuclear capability and it has invested too much political and financial capital at this point to turn away.

    Nothing will be done before the election Maggie. Thatís a fact. Like I said in a previous post,this is a smokescreen thrown up to get in mitts head before the debate.

    Kinda like a catcher leaking to the batter that the next pitch is a fastball,then up pops a screwball.

    <WASHINGTON — The United States and Iran have agreed for the first time to one-on-one negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, according to Obama administration officials, setting the stage for what could be a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran.>


    <Iranian officials have insisted that the talks wait until after the presidential election, a senior administration official said, telling their American counterparts that they want to know which American president they would be negotiating with.>


    <Mr. Romney has repeatedly criticized the president as showing weakness toward Iran and failing to stand firmly with Israel against the Iranian nuclear threat.>

    AS far as I am concerned the US has no business dictating what weapons a country can or can't have. Especially seeing how the US,and many other countries have nukes themselves,talk about hypocritical. So Iron should just extend a couple of middle fingers and tell the UN and everyone else to go **** themselves.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
