Diplomats from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China held a three-hour meeting in New York on Saturday.
It came after Iran ignored... Obama's Dec 31, 2009, deadline to respond to an offer... of economic and political incentives in exchange for halting its nuclear enrichment activities.
"The planned meetings of the (six powers) would not have clear results as long as they lack a realistic approach." said Islamic Republic's Foreign Ministry spokesman.

I still remember that this regime held 53 Americans for 444 days for no other reason other than they were American. As far as I am concerned, the Islamic Republic of Iran is an enemy of the United States, thus the United States has every reason to not want the Islamic Republic of Iran to not have nuclear capabilities.

These are people who don't have electricity for part of every day because of "load sharing". Of course they have a right to nuclear energy.
South Africa was a nuclear state before (look it up)
Algeria was a nuclear state before (look it up).
Having more nuclear powers in the world isn't the end of the world.

Iran should be permitted to have access to peaceful nuclear power. Iran is also a very proud country, which will not cede what it considers to be its right, based on the orders from other countries. The best way to ensure that Iran doesn't develop nuclear weapons is to allow them to have open and functional nuclear power with periodic IAEA inspections.

Also would you really feel safe allowing a country to have WMD that may have empathy and sympathy for terrorists like the Taliban,Jihads, and any body else that they may share views with?
