Basically she is telling Iran that 1 way or another , there's going to be a war with Iran. She is looking for more "world partners" to assist with her demands to stop nuclear development, Iran says it will talk, but it is forging ahead with its nuclear energy program. There is no way these 2 sides can meet, S will get its war.

What I don't get is that we have all of these progressive or so called progressive people in the world, why don't they at least look into what President Ahmadinejad is claiming. I mean once you get passed the religion thing he is just a person who is looking out for the best intrest of his country. Now, I know someone is gonna be like "Well the best intrest for his country is to destory all the infidels!!" and blah blah blah....But isn't that what we have been doing in our country since we stepped foot in it?

This is just more arm flailing by the US in order to further our idea that Iran is a terrorist or rogue nation.

It wasn't 3 weeks ago they announced that they would forgo sanctions and allow Iran to continue with it's program so long as it agreed to frequent and very precise inspections.

I dont' see this going anywhere, they are gonna play this out with letters back and forth and then when Iran announces it has acquired a weapon of some sort, Israel will loose their heads and start a conflict.

The US won't start it, they can't afford another war, and frankly are stretched far too think to win one against Iran in these times.

I don't wanna seem like an Iran lover because I just realized how many times in like 20 mins I defended them. But c'mon ya'll...they have life, love, children, jobs, feelings and all that mushy stuff just like we do. Just because they have a totally different view that I guess would not help the USA in any way, doesn't mean we have to treat them like nerdy kids in elemntary school. Being a bully means that the bully has some issues that he needs to work out himself.

Iran is NOT a threat no matter what who tells you what

It's almost as harmless as Gaza!

Neither Iran nor Israel benefit from a stable Middle East. Israel loses its need for injection of US capital and military tech if there is peace, and Iran loses its ability to galvanize its people against Israel and the West.

That being said, I think they're playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse, because I don't think either country wants all out war between two nuclear armed nations in the area.

Will Iran attack anyone if sanctions are levied? I kind of doubt it...however, we may see them yank the oil exports we need in order to make the sanctions hurt everyone by proxy.

Hillary Clinton Speaking To Ron Paul



She basically isn't saying anything of substance, but at least the rhetoric is getting much better.

I do think diplomacy is very under-rated.

Iran will probably take a leaf out of Nkoreas books

'' Crippling sanctions against the Iranian state will be seen as an act of war ''

Sanctions only do so much to a nation awash in oil, a young population and on friendly terms with its surrounds.

Watching the walkout via youtube last night against Ahmadinejad, it became apparent that we really are moving towards a conflict here.

Which is a shame,
Because when you weigh up both Sides, Israel and Iran I think we are really backing the wrong team.

Think about this,

Israel, who openly manipulate American government/thinking, who take all that aid money every year, who bomb its neighbours willy'nilly, who segregate, isolate and starve its own lands inhabitants is the REASON we hate Iran.

If Israel didn’t exist, Hezbollah/Hamas wouldn’t exist. Nuclear weapons in the ME wouldn’t exist. Palestinian terrorists wouldn’t exist, Syria / Iraq / Jordan / Egypt and Lebanon would be completely different nations.

It seems to me, not having Israel there, would solve a lot of problems in the middle east, and, god forbid, middle eastern nations and the west might see eye to eye and move 'forward' in a more positive matter.

But no, sadly, we are destined to fall when Israel does, because we have been so infected with their manipulation we seem unable to make important decisions by ourselves any more.

I will not fight for an Israeli Aggression.
I will not fight to save Israel nor protect it.
I will not fight anyone, who hasn’t attacked me or threatened my loved ones.
and I will die fighting those that believe their greed is more important than my future.

All our problems are because of the umbilical cord to Israel

Probably because most nerdy kids in elementary school are trying to build a nuke and have a well-known hate-on against Israel.

You cannot advocate an invasion on a sitting duck!

There is an armada of warships blockading Iran
Iran is not and might not ever be a threat

just more fear mongering, and setting up the people for the War that was going to happen for years, it will be USA/Israel attacking Iran, which will escalate into WWIII

Is it me, or is it that when some common name based on keywords develop, that out of the sky, simultaneous post are being projected into the forums. Nice one. Hey, "so", you should reconsider your priority within this site, the algorithms are way to low tech for me to engage.
