Iran offers 'new approach' in nuclear talks: Talks between Iran and the U.N. atomic agency have gone into a second day after a senior Iranian envoy offered a "new approach" meant to end the deadlock over terms of a U.N. probe of suspicions Tehran worked on nuclear arms. Nearly two years of Iran-IAEA meetings have made little progress on launching the investigation by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran denies working to develop nuclear weapons.
But chances of forward movement at Tuesday's round appear bolstered after Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi announced a new initiative from his country. Araghchi, who met IAEA chief Yukiya Amano Monday, gave no details of the Iranian proposal. Teheran denies working on — or interest in — atomic weapons.
20% enrichment will continue but we (Iran) have learned from the west to talk about it differently!
US Senate mulls tougher Iran sanctions
I refuse to believe that after all these times all these threats by us we are stupid enough to really think we can get Iran to bend to our wishes by easing sanctions. All these years all the insistence by Iran that they are going to continue with their nuclear ambitions and it is their God given right to have nuclear power period. We gave them the knowledge in the fifties and they have gone to far and are too close to stop now.
After all this time the Iranian Revolutionary guard further strengthened under Ahmadinejad is not going to give up their quest to control the middle east.
They are not going to loosen their grip, they are not going to stop anything. They have gone too far, the IRG has too much power, and they smell blood. They have been freed up from dealing with Iraq and are not going to stop ensuing their version of new Middle East order with the Shiite in the dominant role!
Ahmadinejad Will Gain From Sanctions, Iranian Official Says
On top of all the instigating Iran has done in every instance I am very concerned with her desire for nuclear weapons, her willingness to use them, and the fact that we gave Iran her nuclear start in the 50s. The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program.
 The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran. We are so concerned about Pakistan and Iran today in regard to nuclear abilities and nuclear weapons and security. I was blown away to find out that we built the first nuclear Reactors in both Iran and Pakistan. Iran's nuclear program
A reminder: As you know, when asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran in 1979 after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply was “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.
I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon.
The current regime in Iran continues to up the ante inside and outside of Iran with militarism and nuclear concerns. They are antagonizing Israel, the US, and others in their quest for war to unite their country! Iran is not going to settle for world peace but instead inside and out they will settle for nothing less than dominance and will destroy the world to get it! Their route to get there alone has changed maybe. What say you?
