Iran has been in diplomatic discussion for past several days with America and Europe over it's attempts to create nuclear power. Now on friday Iran has put an end to the discussion. America and Europe have offered entrance into the WTO and other economic incentives but Iran wants no part of it. Iranian Leader declares that Iran should not have been kept out of WTO in the first place.

Iran has rejected U.S. and European economic incentives offered in exchange for abandoning its nuclear enrichment activities, saying it will not bend to external pressure.

The Iranian response comes a day after Washington said it would drop its objections to Iran's application to the World Trade Organization, WTO, and to the licensing of spare parts for Iranian civilian aircraft.

OK, since we can't stop them trying making nuclear power plants, how about we try to work with them to make sure they don't change course? Nuclear Power Plants use a different type of energy then that of Atomic weapons, so we should help them. If we get on good terms with Iran it may keep Iran from trying to develop weapons of mass destruction or keep them from attacking America. If we work with them, they may work with us, meaning we will be able to find a peaceful way to end the search of WMDs for Iran.

I guess the question is;

Are Iranians really interested in Nuclear Power?

I mean after all, they have one of the World's biggest oil reserves. Personally, i think that they are after nuclear technology as a deterrence factor.

Yes, but think about it... if you have something that makes twice the energy and is 99% cleaner burning then oil, wouldn't you want it? Also, all that oil wasted when they could sell it.

Bottom line, they want nukes. If they didnt then there wouldnt be any problems. If they just wanted cleaner technology they wouldnt be putting up such a fight with the rest of the world.

Ok, not a nuke genius, but the nuclear energy used in most power plants can't be used to make a nuke. So if we helped them build one of those, a newer cleaner kind that we use to keep a 3 Mile Island from happening again, they won't get nukes.

This huge oil reserve will run out before the end of the centry. And then what? Iran is sitting on uranium ores. Wouldnt it be logical to use these ore for future power and technology? After oil runs out there are only a few countries that enrich uranium, Iran does not want to have to beg the West to enrich its uranium for it.

Another crucial aspect of the agreement the Europians and the Americans want is that Iran should "perminantly" drop its nuclear power. In 200 years Iran would still have to abide with this agreement. If the Iranian government agrees with this, they are selling out the future of their country.

Well, the current Russian arrangement won't really lead to Uranium enrichment. The Russians are insisting that all spent fuel rods be returned, etc.

This is one of those difficult issues where we are kinda saying to others;

West: "You can't do this!"

Iran: "Why not?"

West: "Because we don't trust you!"

Iran: "But you've got the bomb too and used it!"

West: "...."
