    Iran 'disqualifies' EU from talks

    BBC NEWS | Europe | Iran 'disqualifies' EU from talks

    The EU is no longer qualified to take part in talks on Iran's nuclear programme, Iran's military chief says.

    Maj Gen Hassan Firouzabadi, Iran's chief of staff, accused the EU of "interference" in riots which followed June's disputed presidential elections.

    EU states, meanwhile, are considering withdrawing their ambassadors from Iran in a growing diplomatic row.
    It appears that Ahmadinejad and the rest of the regime may create their own demise. Thoughts?

    The world should disqualify the Iranian regime from the face of earth.

    I doubt it. They certainley aren't doing themselves any favors by shunning other countries, but its not as if he's creating any enemies that would do something to him.

    Most likely you are correct. The article states that the only nations opposed to full diplomatic pull-out are Germany and Italy. Guess what, they are the two biggest EU trading partners with Iran. What's the saying: The love of money is the root of all evil.

    I wonder, though, if we blockade them in and we stop exports from leaving and imports from entering, how long it will take them to figure out that enriched uranium isn't a good dietary supplement?

    About as long as it took them to put it in missles and fire it in retaliation when they got desperate enough.

    They're gonna use this uprising as excuse to expand their powers and put into effect a full blown police state. It's going to be very important that the Iranian People win and are able to take out that crap theocracy and faux democracy they have now.

    Of course. Russia loves that there is a wacky, near nuke having ME country poking at the U.S. and the West. All thanks to them.

    I think this is the bit the world needs to watch most carefully - "Iran's Basij militia has called for the defeated opposition candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi to be prosecuted.

    The semi-official Fars news agency said the militia - a volunteer force of Islamic government loyalists - had accused Mr Mousavi of nine offences, including propaganda against the state, and complicity in disrupting national security."

    Mousavi's policies and stance may not be that different from Ahmadinejad but the Fars agency accusations are pretty serious. First there appears to be a stolen election and now they are painting the defeated rival as an enemy of the state.

    All too grim a reminder of some of George Orwell's prophetic writing in 1984.
