Iranian President Ahmadinejad has vowed to “wipe Isreal off the map.” If I were Isreal, I would be worried. No one, and I repeat no one, in the western world is stupid enough to make that remark. Why? Because we know that whoever said it is going to be the one that probably gets wiped off the map.
They have been offered already-enriched uranium, access to US nuclear-energy info, and a host of other incentives that will help their rapidly increasing inflation. But instead they remain insistent that their nuclear work is peaceful, although they will not let anyone in to look at it. Sounds kinda suspicious to me….hmmmmm.
And in response to Burca, just because you are in the news doesn’t exactly make you a superstar. You need to learn the difference in English of the words “popularity” and “infamy”. Myanmar was in the news a lot. Earthquakes are in the news a lot. Terrorists are in the news a lot. Doesn’t make them popular, just means a lot of people love to hate them. Iran is only on good terms with countrys that don’t like the US, and that mainly includes people we have slapped sanctions on or don’t care enough about to worry (can you say Venezeula).
But I guess we should just trust the Iranians, cause its not as if they have ever threatened to “wipe Isreal off the map” or anything.

If not for Israeli pressure I don’t believe the US & international community would be taking this position. It’s Iran’s legal right to develop nuclear power and there’s no reason for them to give up this right which includes enrichment. In answer to another writer accepting third party supply of enriched uranium Iran will put itself at the mercy of the US who will use this to extract more concessions on religious and cultural issues. Syria gave up its nuclear program in exchange for financial and trade concessions and the US dragged its feet adding more conditions, Syria was duped. N Korea is now in talks and is in process of destroying its arsenal and technology; mark my words the day verification confirms the weapons have been destroyed talks will stall, more concessions (by the US) will be made and N Korea will regret their decision. The west has demonstrated their willingness to dishonor international agreements repeatedly, there’s little wonder that they aren’t trusted. As concerns a strike of some sort. Iran is not Iraq, they have the capability of waging both an open and covert war. If you think the middle east is in turmoil now any military action against Iran will unite any number of countries and garner financial support even from US allies in the region. There will be no turning back and with a trigger happy Israel it will be nuclear.

Why should IRAN be under prohibition for 30 years? the USA presidents can anser to this question.

It would be wise of any nation to learn from and respect this rising sleeping beauty.

Really, USA, Britain, canada etc need to tell the Iranians – listen guys, you are not going to be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb

We cannot talk with the current regime unless they send an adult minded diplomat to deal with the issue.

I am also a veteran of the US Army and I know about the tensions in the middle east. The Arab countries main problem with my country (US) is ongoing and has mainly to do with our support for Israel. I think that the Iranians should have the open right to develop nuclear power. The only thing that is stopping this and causing all these problems is that Israel thinks they are going to develop nuclear weapons and they are in fear of getting bombed. I say it is the 21st century, and we have to at least “try” to trust Iran. If we (US) and many of our allies have the right to develop nuclear power for energy, then why shouldn’t another country like Iran have that same right? This is why the world is so off balance, we need to have a peaceful world, we need to respect other countries beliefs in religion and politics. If we have an open mind, and continue more talks with Iran, the world could be a better place! The thing is, if we don’t give them the chance, then how will we ever know? I think we were wrong about Iraq and their supposed weapons of mass destruction, and “maybe” we are also wrong about Iran! They have some great citizens there in Iran, they are not all terrorists! I would love to see a great US and Iranian friendship! We could police the gulf together, provide security for shipping, and better the region overall! The main thing is; How will we (US) know if we never give them the chance to prove themselves? Thanks so much, I wish peace and the love of GOD to the world! Mike/Pennsylvania

I think the author is totally naive. It is clear that the Iranians have employed a “rug seller” mentality during the years of negotiations. They’re stalling for time…playing the Europeans as chumps (which is what they are), while busily proceeding with their nuclear program, which by all evidence, is not for peaceful purposes. If it were for peaceful purposes only, they would have been wise to accept the enriched uranium already offered to them. The whole situation is ludicrous. Don’t be surprised when Iran tests its first nuclear bomb. Then the Straits of Hormuz and all of the military bases in the Middle East (not to mention all of Israel) while be subject to the whims of these looneys.
