Or what, WWIII?! Russia and China will just veto any military actions.

Making ultimatums like this will do nothing, nothing but show how futile american influence has become. Today’s vote at the UN will make it even harder for the US to maintain any semblance of control. America has handcuffed itself into unilateral military action against Iran. Good. Nothing the usa needs more than another military action on the backs of future generations. Go barry go! Go barry go!

Which security council was that? The very same security council whose job is to keep dishing out resolutions so that Americans have something to veto and Israelis to wipe their backsides with when they run out of toilet paper. What a circus.

The US has been setting deadlines for Iran for the past 9 years on this issue. Nothing new here folks. This “deadline” is meaningless as it is unenforceable, and the US knows this very well. Meanwhile, one would hope Barry O is enjoying his toy drone. Iran would be happy to send him more toys should he start feeling adventurous again.

March is the begining of spring and March 21st is the persian new year, so I guess there is some signifigance in US’s threat of “or else”.
Yuki Amano is another stooge propped up by american pressure just google him and you will see his complete resume.
That threat is not worth the toilet paper it is written on. If they think that Iran will be motivated by threats, than they have totally misinterpreted the whole concept of the “negotiation”.
The world is held hostage on this issue for well over a decade now and I think it’s time to “negotiate” as intentded in “Queen’s English” verbage.

So after years of cyber attacks by the US and Israel and numerous murders of Iranian scientists by the US and Israel, the US expects the Iranians to give the IAEA, an organization rife with American spies, unfettered access to their military sites? An access, I might add, that is not required by the NNPT. The Iranians aren’t stupid. They know that such access would be simply casing the joint for our future military attack on Iran.

Our government has become useless when it comes to foreign policy. It seems like the only policies that are being enforced, are the ones infringing on the citizens of the United States and our allies. We DO NOT ENFORCE federal laws protecting our country against foreign terrorist or illegals. It is a joke what we have as politicians serving and protecting the citizens. They are just looking out for themselves. All the United States is doing, is giving Iran more time to finish their nuclear weapons. So when Iran finishes the United States will then worry and act surprised. We are not looked too or RESPECTED like America use to be. America is just showing how WEAK our Politics are when it comes to threats and promises and standing behind what we say. America is a JOKE!

Providing targeting information on the US and Israel to Iran and its allies is the best way to prevent US leaders (?) and Israel from dragging the US into another war that will add additional destruction to the US. I don’t mind the punishment of Israel because Israel wants this war, and I am willing to let Israel receive punishment. Israelis chose to live in a bad neighborhood; they bomb it to keep it in bad shape; so they deserve any destruction that they receive.

alanchristopher- How did you come to the conclusion that Israel wants this war with Iran? What facts do you have to support this rediculous, outlandish comment? Israel more than anyone wants PEACE and to be recognized and left alone. This is a FACT! If you had any common sense, you would know that Israel is the ONLY buffer between the Middle East and the United States. If you are not aware, the Muslims and Arabs (Terrorist) do not care for Americans or Westeners. We would be open for an attack if it wasn’t for Israel being the ONLY Democracy and that is our TRUE allie. Try reading and learning before showing your lack of knowledge and NO common sense, as well as anti-semetic!

Obama is utterly childish. Giving Iran a deadline to stop its enrichment is a joke. How about giving the U.S. a deadline to stop its belligerent actions against Iran? Obama is worse than Bush who was at least honest in his stupidity. Obama pretends to be accommodating, yet is even more belligerent than Bush.

Fuzzy57 I watched while Benjamin Netanyahu held up a rough child-like drawing of a graff and drew a red line on it with a marker while
“SCOLDING” the US for being lax in giving Iran so much time to comply. He said There should be a line drawn that Iran should not be allowed to cross when it comes to allowing inspectors in to see the site where the nuclear activity is ongoing… To me, that looked very much like he was “chomping at the bit”.

@Fuzzy57: your name seems very apt, you are fuzzy in your retorts, and this phrase anti-semetism should be erased from the english dictionary.
This phrase is so loosely used that people don’t give a monkey’s fig anymore. Whats wrong with you people can you not live in peace and harmony like everyone else? And why the hell are american tax payers being saddle with your ineptness. Sorry but I don’t buy your crap about labelling all Muslims/ Arabs as terrorist.

Doesn’t matter, because Iran’s got allies on the UNSC, and they have veto power. We should say if they develop a nuclear weapon, we will launch a decapitating missile strike against the Iranian President, Supreme Leader, and Ministry of Defense.

More PROPAGANDA to try and force IRAN into the International Banking Cartel. The IMF says “we can protect you from the evil USA and Israel if you just set up OUR BANKING SYSTEM in your country” . We also need you to trade your oil in DOLLARS. This is why USA wants to attack IRAN. It has nothing to do with nuclear weapons. If you think Iran would use a nuclear bomb, you need to educate yourself.

reminds Me of North Korea.

No No We are not trying to build a nuclear weapon. We just want electricity for Our poor poor masses.
Everyone blindly ignoring the fact that you dont need to enrich Uranium or Plutonium to get electricity. There are many reactors producing mass amounts of electricity. But No enriched Uranium.
Why was it so important for North Korea.? Ten billion dollars in U.S. financial aid,Two benign reactors,and ten years later.
We found out why.
What does Iran needs all that enriched Uranium for?
Why shouldnt Iran be allowed to build a nuclear arsenal?

Answer … Although I do believe Iran would not be stupid enough to directly attack or use nukes on other countries. I also believe they would gladly place them in the hands of various fanatical groups they sponsor. Who would not only use them,They would not mind blowing themselves up doing it. Therefore there is No deterrent for them.

I reserve the right to give You all a big fat I TOLD YOU SO. sometime in the near future.

So, to set an example of peaceful co-operation, will Israel sign the NPT (something it has refused to do so far) and open Dimona up to inspection by the IAEA (also refuses to do…so far)?

Thought not. Israel is the problem, and has always been the problem in the Middle-East.

politicaljunkie- It is obvious you resent the truth about people being anti-semetic. Ok then, we will use the word uneducated racist instead. Does that suit you better? Also you should take the time to do your homework and see what is truly going on between Israel and the United States when it comes to money. You obviously have no knowledge as to what Israel really gets and what the United States gets in return. Just like most Americans that complain about what Israel gets from the USA. You people are really IGNORANT to the FACTS and TRUTH as far as what you think you know. Thats right, you don’t think!. You constantly open your mouths and insert your foot. Try learning before you talk out of your arse and look even more stupid than you are. Thank you for your attention in your matter of your ignorance.

There’s so many that don’t understand the big picture. And some don’t seem to want to accept reality either.

Obama was elected. The other side, one could say, did a good job of ensuring that happened. It’s 4 years till he’s done. Get used to that reality. Blame the president for whatever, but so what? He’s not up for re-election.

What precisely should Obama do? If you get the correct answer, it’s like winning the $500 million Power Ball. So rather than constant snipes at how bad Obama is, propose one logical solution to the dilemma with Iran, who happens to be a signatory, BTW, as one practices at being arm-chair president.

The American public probably wouldn’t support unilateral action by Israel. A repeat of the Iraq mission by Israel in Iran would likely be met by retaliation. Iran is not led by the likes of Saddam nor are they Iraq. So really, what should Obama do?

Of course Iran wants nuclear weapons. Of course they will use it on Israel first, and then the rest of the non muslim nations later. Why? Their bible tells them to convert or kill all infadels (that is non muslims). Let them fulfill their destiny.

@paulbe

Muslims are the problem, and always have been the problem in the Middle East. Prior to the warrior Muhammed, there wasn’t a religous force that was conquering the middle east, north africa, and east asia all in the name of Allah. Israel didn’t exist from 600-1948. There was always war in that region during that time. Religous wars. Help yourself to a history book.

You are right Obama is a failure and that is exactly what we should expect from him. As long as he promises to buy everyone’s vote why should he do anything differently, and why should you expect anything different from him but to continue his failed policies for another 4 years.

Life1- Being Jewish and very active in the religon, I know a lot more than you think. It is the people that comment on the blog, who make remarks without doing any reading on the topic, no matter what the topic is. It is their ignorance, lack of education and common sense that really fuel the fire, if you know what I mean. A lot of christians are indoctrinated from a young age, to hate the Jews for whatever reason.I grew up with some of these Jew haters and had my fights going to school. They couldn’t even tell me why they were told to feel this way from their parents.I was rejected from a volunteer Rescue squad and was told from one of my friends that it was because of my religion. It was my so called friends that rejected me. But yet these same people would hold KKK meetings at the squad. This was in Suffolk Virginia and the majority of the patients were black. Figure that one out. So I know more than you think unlike a lot of people that just like to hear themselves rant with no credable facts to support their comments.
