GENEVA: The Iranian plan to resolve their nuclear crisis proposes a framework for talks but still needs a lot of work, a source close to the talks here told Breaking Defense.
Iran’s plan presented today to the United States and five other world powers was designed to show Iran’s good will and to lay the groundwork for a breakthrough. It outlines time frames for Iran to meet international demands that it guarantee it does not seek nuclear weapons. The first is what could take place within three to six months. This would include Iran giving up 20 percent enrichment of uranium, which is closer to weapon-grade than uranium enriched for normal power reactor fuel, the source said in exclusive comments to Breaking Defense.
While people believe Iran was related to 9/11?
Make an appointment to see her outside of class or see her during her regular office hours and ask if you can compare notes with your sources versus hers. Maybe you have sources she doesn't know and maybe she has sources you don't know, but that's how I'd approach it. If it turns out she has no credible sources, then you can deal with her ignorance as you see fit, but maybe looking at yours might sway her?
Now how do you deal with ignorance at that level? I asked her about Wahhabi sect members after class short of an argument..but enough to determine she truly believed what she was saying and it was by no means an intentional dis-info jab.
Speaking of Iran...a point to mention here? I'm in World History and this is a college level course. 101..but still. It's not a cursory blow through. It's also an older instructor who has been doing this all her life. I actually agreed with her until today ..and it took all I had to bite my tongue and not have major words on the spot for the level of outright B.S. we got this morning.
While people believe Iran was related to 9/11? Heck, Obama is actually fighting the US public to work peace with Iran. It's nuts and it's stupid, but there it is.
What did she say by the way? Well... I've heard the 20% radical figure before for what is estimated to be fighting radical across the Middle East. That didn't bother me too much. When she said Sunni's were the good guys and the WHOLE 20% of Radicals were represented by the Shia and specifically Iran? Well.... That's hard to stay quiet with.
When..a couple minutes later....she walked over the where Shia and Sunni were written on the grease board, pointed to Shia and said 'these guys are who did 9/11' before moving on? Well... I think my tongue is a littlw swollen ..even now.
This....is...a...college...history and Poli-Sci instructor making such a profound and fundamental error ...while teaching the origins and basic structure of Islam and Muhammad, no less.
Now how do you deal with ignorance at that level? I asked her about Wahhabi sect members after class short of an argument..but enough to determine she truly believed what she was saying and it was by no means an intentional dis-info jab.
