US to give Iran talks 'only until October'


www.presstv.ir

According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, the United States has set October as its deadline for engaging Iran in the first round of talks over the country's nuclear activities.

The report cited Ross as saying that "unless the US sees a change in Iran's position on its nuclear program, Washington's stance toward Tehran will stiffen at that time."

I wonder if Israel can wait until October?

Hopefully Iran can get their nuke plant started before then and spice up the deal.

This "you can't have a nuclear power plant" nonsense is pretty silly. Why should Israel have a nuclear power plant if Iran can't?

And who get to decide if you get to have a power plant or not?? That should be your own decision, not someone else's.

Seeing as how pretty much the whole world thinks Iran having nuclear capabilities is a bad idea, I think we should step back and wonder why.

Iran is holding presidential elections on June 12, there are two contenders to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, both of whom are reformists; Former Prime Minister Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Former Speaker of the Majlis, Mehdi Karroubi.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not expected to win. This will pressure the new president to set the nuclear issue at the fore-front of his agenda.

Why stiffen at all?

Iran's position on nuclear technology is that they want to produce nuclear power plants.

Why should the US have a beef with that?

It's not like nuclear energy and nuclear weapons are compatible.

Obama gives Iran until end of year on nuclear talks

WASHINGTON, May 18 (AFP) May 18, 2009
US President Barack Obama said after meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday that he would assess whether Iran was serious about nuclear talks by the end of this year.

"We are not going to have talks forever," Obama said as he met reporters alongside the Israeli leader in the Oval Office.

"My expectation would be that if we begin discussions soon, shortly after the Iranian elections, we should have a fairly good sense by the end of the year as to whether they are moving in the right direction."


So if there is going to be a war, next year is a good bet.
