Looks like we might have a November surprise. Maybe Iran favors Obama?? Anyway WW3 diverted...for now.
Iran has suspended the enrichment of uranium stockpiles to the 20% purity needed to bring it a short step from building a nuclear device, news
services in the region have reported.
Mohammad Hossein Asfari, a member of parliament responsible for foreign policy and national security, was quoted as saying that the move was a
"goodwill" gesture, aimed at softening Iran's position before a new round of scheduled talks with the United States after this week's presidential
Asfari said he hoped sanctions would be lifted in return for Iran's actions, otherwise it would resume the programme, according to a website
belonging to the Al Arabiya news channel. Talks aimed at halting Iran's enrichment programme have made little progress, leading to the west
tightening sanctions and increasing the prospect of military action by Israel.
The Islamic republic's economy has plummeted in the grip of punitive economic measures and Tehran indicated earlier this month that it would be
willing to negotiate. However, the offer to suspend enrichment required so many concessions that it was dismissed by the United States.
