Iran demands West accept counter plan on nuclear program
Iran is now making demands of Obama and the west! Way to go Mr. Engage our enemies!
Iran's foreign minister on Saturday issued an ultimatum to the West: Either renegotiate the United Nations-backed deal on Iran's nuclear program, or the Islamic republic will enrich nuclear fuel on its own.It turned out exactly like we knew it would, and now Iran is another year closer to producing that nuclear bomb. This type of naivete has not been seen since the Carter administration, and this country has not been seen as weak since the Carter administration.
While other reports stated that the year end deadline was Obamas plan, the CNN state run media piece quoted here blames everyone but the Obama administartion.
Mottaki's comments came two days after Iran failed to meet a year-end deadline to accept a deal offered in October by the "P5 plus one" -- permanent United Nations Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States, plus Germany.Remember well that October was the original deadline, and then when nothing materialized the west offered a sweetheart deal to supply Iran with enrichment services with the end of the year now the deadline. Well, here we are the end of the year and we are exactly where we were the day the Commander in Hope took office.
So what next? After deriding the "failed foreign policy of the Bush administration" can the Obama administration seriously and credibly pursue new sanctions? I guess he can, because state run media won't call him on it. In fact, they'll probably celebrate it as some new ingenious never tried before brilliant idea.
