    I never said that, but we have already done something; embargo.

    That's silly...
    What im saying is that both nations have some interest with one another, the US has an interest in Iran not getting nuclear weapons, and Iran has an interest in acquiring getting a nuclear weapon so the US wont invade. The US does not want to invade and Iran does not want the US to invade and both have bargaining powers, so therefor its going to be a long drawn out negotiations and various small actions. Polisci 101 baby.

    We have a tragedy in CT with a shooting, and all of the sudden our right to own a gun should be taken away, but let Iran threaten world war, and we must wait....priorities man priorities....
    What does CT have to do with anything?

    Our ME policy under Obama is a huge failure.
    What do you mean? Iran releases inflammatory fear mongering statements about a defensive missile system on their periphery is evidence that they aren't afraid of NATO? I think quite clearly Iran fears NATO and the Western powers, they are just agitating for the most advantageous position they can get in the region and are frustrated to see their position in Syria crumble. They also probably have a fair notion of what would be a trip-wire for actual Western intervention against their country, and press statements like this aren't it. It rarely is.
