Iran's negotiators have toughened their stance on the nuclear programme, signalling that Tehran will refuse to go ahead with an agreement to hand over 75 per cent of its enriched uranium.
The move came as Iranian officials held talks with representatives of America, France and Russia in Vienna. An earlier meeting in Geneva on Oct 1 had yielded an agreement which some saw as a possible breakthrough.
In Vienna, Major nuclear powers are holding talks with Iran on how to supply its reactor with enriched uranium.
It could involve sending Iran's nuclear materials to France and Russia.
The French Foreign Minister said that if one tonne of uranium leaves Iran - concerns that it could make a nuclear bomb would be groundless. [/x]

In an escalation of tensions, the head of the Revolutionary Guard, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said his security officials had documents linking Britain and America to Jundullah, the militant group which claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing on Sunday.
Seven senior Guard officers were among at least 42 officials, bystanders and tribal leaders to have been killed.
"Behind this scene are the American and British intelligence apparatus, and there will have to be retaliatory measures to punish them,"

I wonder why the sudden turn around? Does this have anything to do with the fact that their Religious leader is in a coma or possibly dead and some of their old Revolutionary guard leaders were killed recently?

Any alternate source.
The threats, broadcast on Iranian television and in statements from the country’s atomic energy organization, may have simply been negotiating tactics ahead of negotiations that started in Vienna, the city that saw so many Cold War nuclear talks between the United States and the Soviet Union.
But in recent days the Iranians have repeatedly suggested that they may not ship the fuel out of the country at all, and would demand that the West sell it new fuel for its research reactor in Tehran, which is used largely for medical purposes. That would leave the existing fuel in the country, a situation that the United States, Europe and Israel has said is too dangerous, given Iran’s history of hiding nuclear activity from international inspectors.
they will do what they want because they know Obama will not do anything to stop them.

Only really gullible people expected this deal to happen, and yes western media are gullible sods indeed, and they never learn!
The Russian's also stated 2 weeks ago that the deal still has to be finalised, and lo-behold it still hasn't!

Russia and China enjoy economic ties with Iran, but the two of them would hardly let themselves be drawn into a conflict due to the risk of a snowball effect.
