    Iran's Khamenei says could accept fair nuclear compromise

    Iran does not pose a significant direct nuclear threat to the United States. The way forward is for a deal that allows them to enrich uranium under strict safeguards. Those that don't think this is possible only have one other option, that is war.

    In a speech that still underlined his suspicions about Western nations that he characterized as "bullies", Khamenei backed Rouhani's negotiations with them and said any workable deal would mean both sides easing their demands.

    "As the president said, negotiations mean reaching a common point. Therefore, the other party ... should not expect its illogical expectations to be materialized. This means that one side would not end up getting all it wants."

    "I am for reaching a good settlement and the Iranian nation too will certainly not oppose any deal to uphold its dignity and integrity," Khamenei said, an apparent warning to hardliners that they might have to accept a deal with powers including the United States, commonly known in Iran as "the Great Satan".

    That would be an Obama foreign policy success. Had John McCain won in 2008, we'd have long ago bomb bomb bomb, bomb bombed Iran, with the applause and support of the fringe right that lurks about this place.

    Agreed. It is in the interests to do so, and would likely contribute to a more stable Middle East.

    It is interesting that in the moment that Russia and the EU are showing the world how important it is to have nuclear capabilities in Ukraine, Iran says it will forego such weapons.



    PS: The question of a direct and present threat to the US has nothing to do with the problem of Iran having nuclear weapons. You know that don't you?

    You are wrong, it does have something to do with it. That is not the only issue, but that is part of it.

    Other than simple self appointment, the US has no authority to decide which countries do and which countries do not have nuclear weapons. And as the only country to date that has used nuclear weapons, and on two very civilian targets, the US should be the last to be deciding on this. But when you carry a big stick, you pretty much do as you wish. And this is why republicans in particular, never want to see the pentagon, that sacred cow, receive even the slightest budget cut, never mind that the size and scope of our military far surpasses defensive obligations.

    Iran has maintained from jump street that their nuclear program is commercial and not military in nature.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    We were never worried about being attacked by Iran...

    #1 They probably couldn't even make a missile with that much range, and if they could they could only make 1-2 maybe even 3 at best.

    #2 we have a triple layered defense system that would shoot the pitiful missiles down.

    You are wrong, jog is right. Iran never will have the capability to directly damage us in any way (outside of possibly hacking a couple US companies), including nuclear.
