How does Iran Obtain "Peaceful Nuclear Power"?Submitted by xRegardsx on Tue, 09/25/2012 - 13:07
"Mr. Obama took on a number of issues at play between America and the Muslim world, vowing that the 'United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon' and warning that time to diplomatically resolve the Iranian nuclear issue 'is not unlimited.'
But he refused to go further than what he has said in the past, that 'a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained,' despite pleas from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel to establish a new red line.
'America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe there is still time and space to do so,” Mr. Obama said. 'We respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the United Nations is to see that we harness that power for peace.'"
