    Well, you did hear him try and blame the media for over-hyping things with ISIS.....despite his own people saying otherwise. Even with Cameron in the UK saying ISIS was a direct threat to the US and UK.

    Hard to believe Cameron believes what BO says about his deal with Iran. There is no deal other than some outline that BO says. Which would have to be dealt with and that would take time and another extension just to hammer out the finer details.

    Which still doesn't count Iran saying Parchin is off the table.

    There was that opinion, and their were other opinions. If you can justify turning two cities into glass, and killing 200,000 civilians, then anybody can justify anything.

    Dwight D. Eisenhower, in a post-war interview.

    And he was right, and the US remains even 70 years latter the only country to have used one, despite the fact there are multiple countries with them. Tell me that if Russia or China or Pakistan or Syria dropped a nuke on Tel Aviv, or Washington DC that you wouldn't call it an act of terrorism?

    I'm not buying into anything. Lies are coming out of the US, Russia, China, England, Syria, Israel..................stop patronising the West, and prove that Iran has a weapon, or is fabricating one, and just as I told another poster, then we can have the discussion about whether or not it's the concern you fearful think it is.

    That is good, because if truth were based on what Netanyahu said, then there would be no such thing as truth.

    My understanding is that the notion that Iran is developing ICBMs is based on the fact that they are developing the technology to launch satellites into space.

    ... and how many times have they said they were open to some kind of deal, and then backed out of it? I think it is more than ten times, now.

    I said to Excon that my understanding that Iran is developing ICBMs is based on the fact that they are developing the technology to launch satellites into space.

    But that aside Russia, China, India and Pakistan all have ICBMs. Does that mean that the U.S. should not negotiate deals with them? Recently, the U.S. negotiated a significant nuclear deal with India.

    Over and above that, Iran has the knowledge on how to enrich uranium. Iran has the knowledge on how to launch satellites into space. Do you really think that can be changed through military means?

    You were stating the Iranian lie as if it had some value in the discussion.

    Goshin, the point is what is the best way forward. I have said again and again that Iran has this knowledge now. They know exactly how to do these things. As such, the best way forward is one in which the conditions are made such that they do not want to do them, along with allowing them to enrich under strict scrutiny. Otherwise the only thing would be infinite confrontation with Iran. Do you really think that is realistic?
