US gives Iran 'last chance' warning over shutting down nuclear facility

Obama demands concessions as crucial talks begin in Istanbul later this week

Guy Adams Monday 09 April 2012

Iran must immediately close a large nuclear facility built underneath a mountain if it is to take what President Obama has called a "last chance" to resolve its escalating dispute with the West via diplomacy.

Other "near term" concessions which must be met in the early stages of talks to avoid a potential military conflict, include the suspension of higher level uranium enrichment, and the surrender by Tehran of existing stockpiles of the fuel, senior US officials said yesterday.

The demands were outlined as Iranian state TV announced that crucial negotiations over its disputed nuclear programme will begin in Istanbul on Friday, allaying fears that disagreements over the venue would derail the important and long-scheduled talks.

Obama has plenty of time to

Obama has plenty of time to push the US into a war with Iran and shoot down the North Korean rocket. World War III is a great pretext for "staying with our current commander in chief", isn't it?

thats

what he meant

Banker-controlled Obama falling right into line.

No guts to stop this madness.

Neither does Romney.

All the president has to say is that HE is commander in chief and that HE will not dance to the tune of world bankers.

But that takes guts.

Obama is a big-government's best friend - As are Romney, the GOP and the RNC.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Banker-controlled Romney will fall right into line as well.

The bankers can't lose.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

It's good to be a banker!

And you can take that to the bank!

Its our last chance

to stop this war and stop all the other wars to come. Where is the public outrage!

No capacity for outrage left

No capacity for outrage left in the American public, only apathy.

Besides it's not like they cancelled "dancing with the stars" or something.

IRAN...

Should tell the negotiators to go F*** themselves unless Israel has to give up all of it's nuclear weapons :)

Meanwhile

Russia builds troop levels near the eastern border.

Hey Bob, do you think you've posted

enough scintillating, sensationalist new threads yet? What's up with that?

Let's keep our focus on getting Ron Paul elected. If we want the scary news, we'll turn on TV.

They don't report the scary news on TV

They only report what THEY want you to hear.

I'm watching your butt, c2c,

Obviously, you are not capable of it. Tell you what, when we dig you out of the rubble, I'll tell you what happened. Then we can both focus on getting Ron Paul elected.

lmao

nice
