I agree. 4 more years of Bush and he would have "taken care" of Iran. At what cost? No ones knows.
Iran must be laughing because the U.S is so caught up with Libya and Japan, and Iraq/Afgah, that the worlds attention has faded on Iran as they finish up their UN listed illegal nuclear plants.

Also, today, Turkey captured an Iranian cargo plane FULL of weapons...

No big deal right? I mean.. U.S is arming the same Libyan rebels that have ties to murdering NATO troops in Iraq.

All we need to do is start another war...talk about war mongering. Maybe we should have voted McCain and Palin into office since McCain was bent on bombing Iran.
Just because the U.S. is looked upon as a super power, doesn't mean we have to flex our muscle every time some country half way around the world starts ruffling its neighbor's feathers. If Iran or Saudi Arabia has problems with Iran, let them take care of it. It's in their backyard! Their military has been subsidized by U.S. technology for years, so I'm sure they can handle their problems on their own. This country is beginning to look like the country we feared about for decades...the Soviet Union. Who's pushing our ideology and muscle around now? Everyone thought Vietnam, North Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan would be a push over. I guess we were wrong, and we'll be wrong again! I don't think Iran would be any kind of easy push over either.

Which of Iran's nuclear plants are illegal again?

^That is a genuine question BTW not trying to be cheeky.

All of them because it violates international law. People seem to think they can do whatever they would like on their own land/country, this may be the case when it comes to which drugs can be legalized in which countries and which countries can "legally" marry 9 year old girls, but this isn't true when it comes to Nuclear Power.

Secret Talks Progress on Illegal Iranian Nuclear Plant - TIME
www.time.com...

"A common refrain in the Western media is that Iran’s nuclear program is illegal, “outlawed”, or otherwise of a proscribed nature. This assertion is based on the fact that the U.N. Security Council passed a number of resolutions calling on Iran to halt its enrichment activities and imposing sanctions on the country for disinclining to acquiesce to the U.N. demand. The U.S. view, adopted elsewhere as well, is that the resolutions are binding and by failing to heed their demands Iran is in violation of international law."

From your own link ....... the following:


There can only be one correct interpretation. In this case, a reading of the relevant texts under international law clearly demonstrates that Iran’s interpretation is actually the correct one.

www.foreignpolicyjournal.com...


It goes on to state that ......


The IAEA resolution does not find Iran in violation of its obligations under the NPT, but merely “Expresses serious concern” that the Agency could not yet “clarify some important issues” and “Deeply regrets” that Iran had disinclined to acquiesce to requests to once again voluntarily suspend enrichment. Of course, there is no legal obligation for Iran to do so, and the IAEA resolution does nothing to suggest otherwise. It “Requests” that Iran “extend full and prompt cooperation to the Agency”. The IAEA may request that Iran halt legitimate enrichment activities, but has no legal authority to demand that it do so.

You should read the full article.
