    <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.>

    not suprising as they begin to feel the noose tighten around their necks.

    Someone posted at thread on this using a flufey source a few days ago. Posters laughed at the source. Who's laughin' now?

    Another reason not to elect President Obama. We'll end up buyin' them off with taxpayer funds. Watch. You read it here first.

    bu them off with tax payer funds would still be better than getting involved in a much more expensive war with a decent sized country.

    It's another reason to vote for President Obama, wasting not only money, but more importantly US lives by warring with Iran would cost us way more.

    Problem with Romney is that no one on the international stage would take his ideas seriously because they are abusrd. I doubt Romney himself would really go through with a preemptive stike on Iran if he was to become president. He is just saying exactly what a certain % of voters want to hear.

    I would hope he would take the hard stand that Obama has taken up 'til now. Keep those sanctions running. Keep world opinion behind those sanctions. And increase the number of nations imposing them. Talks? Not.so.much.

    I don't advocate blackmail. We do it all the time, but I'm against it myself. I agree war is not the answer, though. Surgical strikes? Perhaps.

    only problem is I dont see Iran as the kind of nation to just take a surgical strike and move on like Iraq did in the 90's. Not only that but any kind of strike would have to meet the approval of Israel as they would be right in the frying pan if we turned up the heat.
