    Iranian ministry suggests openness to nuclear talks

    A sober analysis assessing the possible threat of a military confrontation over Iran’s nuclear program and highlighting the benefits of negotiations to avert a deeper crisis has been published by a surprising source: Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence.The report first appeared on the ministry’s Web site Tuesday and has been republished by various Iranian media outlets, adding to growing speculation that new negotiations with the international bloc known as the P5+1, or even direct talks with the United States, may be on the horizon.

    Ignoring the possibility of “imminent force,” the report says, would be an “unforgivable sin.” To avoid such a military confrontation, the report advises: “One of the options is to take diplomatic and political measures and use the potentials of international bodies, which is a necessary and less costly option.”

    It seems many in the "hawkish" Iranian Intelligence agency are pushing for diplomacy over force in their talks about their nuclear program. This should defiantly be seen as a plus.

    Oh, look, the Iranian regime is turning over a new leaf!






    haha, not.



    ps. A "hawk" is pro-intervention and that has little to nothing to do with the Iranian regime, unless we are discussing their plans to intervene in other countries. "Hawk" does not mean 'pro getting ones own country invaded'.

    Well they may be doing that but until talks happen and we actually have genuine diplomatic talks i believe we can expect more and more of this.

    I hope they come to the table, deep down I dont believe the Iranian people want a war with the west. The Irianian administration on the other hand its hard to say

    I believe the vast majority of officials in the Iranian administration dont want war, i even think that Ahmadinejad doesnt want war.. The west going to war with Iran would be political suicide for not only the Iranian people, but for the theocratic regime set up currently.

    Maybe this is real, or maybe it is simply more stalling to continue the (so far) fruitless negotiations and pretend inspections of some of its known nuclear facilities. Note that no mention was made of "tough" economic sanctions being effective, but the threat of force (surely the use of it) may at least be getting their attention. I would not put too much faith in further talks, especially if they start with first you do this, and then we may slow down our nuclear race.

    If they are honestly doing what they're doing for power? Why doesn't the United States offer to send in American companies to get the job done? For $$.

    However it does go on to say that the economic sanctions are helping control the situation.
