Major powers to make "substantial and serious offer" to Iran

Why shouldn’t Iran have nuclear weapons, considering that the US, Russia, Britain, France, India, Pakistan, Israel, and possibly North Korea all have them? Iran is a large and populous sovereign nation. The Iranians know that the US has never attacked a nuclear-armed country, which is what North Korea knows also. The Iranian leadership may be ultra-religious, but they are not suicidal. They are not crazy enough to use nuclear weapons as anything but a deterrent.

Iran wants a weapon for defense NOT offense. Other Nations that suround them have nukes already we have no right to tell Iran they cant have one when all other major powers do. Gas prices are far more important to me than Iran but our President is a wall street pupit.

The USA and Israel are losing the PR battle, we’ve been hearing too much crap propaganda from them for far too long. Outside of full out invasion and war Iran will continue to do as they wish no different than North Korea. They’ll take a look at the ‘serious offer’ and use it to wipe their butt cracks.

The only real question is what will those silly xenophobic Zionists do? If they start a war they’ll be expecting the American citizens to pay for it, yup! Are you going to want to further bankrupt the USA in order to prevent proliferation that France started by giving Israel nukes in the first place? Didn’t think so.

The sadomasochists and apologists for the Islamic Republic are out in full force. Bottom line: the western powers and the international community will not allow an apocalyptic fascist regime in the Islamic Republic to acquire nuclear weapons. It simply won’t happen. As President Obama has said, we will take the steps necessary to prevent this. You can advocate for sadomasochism, but the free world will not.

I expect Iran would not lock out its scientific & engineering potential to produce inexpensive nuclear fuel and trade it internationally so it could buy gold or have a bank account in obscure british or french banks. This is such an absurd proposal that is only good for a headline in fox news.

The US spends BILLIONS on “smart” bombs that can target combatants and spare civilians.

It’s time to save some money, build “dumber” bombs, and flatten Tehran if these talks go nowhere again.

@dutch-boy Now I do love my Grolsh, sipping my 6th so far tonight, but you need to go back to bed. Towel head? Me? Dude, I live in the Great White North and wear a toque, not no stinking long scarf, harhar! If you speak actively against the USA you get a drone missile up the wahooie! Holy, even if your a famous musician here in North America and say something against the Presidente you get a visit from the Secret Service. Imagine what happens if your just a little wee peon citizen. Give yer head a shake and wake up! The USA kidnaps and indefinitely confines/assassinates people without trial like in the dark ages. Their citizenry is as apathetic as the German population was during the rise of Nazism. Look at the fools cheer and drool at the mouth over drone attacks that kill hundreds of innocent civilians, women and children.

Folks, get ready for Iran to have nukes, not to threaten the world (that is BS fed to the ignorant to control their thinking), but to deter a regime bent on destruction of the world (Israel). Thanks to Obama, the warmongers in Israel are in check. Had it not been for Obama, we would have a third WW on hand right now, with no light at the end of the tunnel.

The 5+1 needs to redirect their attention towards Israel’s nuclear arsenal. This is a country which as attacked ALL their neighbors, Iran has not attacked any neighbor in over 200 years. Just put 2 and 2 together.

This “serious offer” is simply one of the last pavers in the USreal-designed road to another ME conflict. USrael knows the offer will be rejected. Usrael knows that Iran will not bow to external pressure and close it’s underground facility. The current exercise is deigned to get Israel around the UN Security Council in it’s road to unprovoked aggression against the sovereign state of Iran. Americans wake up! ….or pay dearly in blood and treasure.

Serious and substantial offer like close fardow now!Ridiculous.

A serious and substantial offer would be for the US to acknowledge the re-emergence of Persia as a power and deal with it accordingly.
