Is Iran terminally unique?

By Jill Dougherty

Nuclear talks between Iran and six world powers are supposed to begin in one week in Istanbul, but there's a hitch: Iranian officials at the last minute have been tossing out proposals for alternate locations, such as Beijing, Damascus or Baghdad.

U.S. officials are drumming their fingers, eyes on the clock. "We are ready to get down to business and get this process moving forward," one senior official told CNN.

Hitches and glitches with Iran are nothing new. Last month President Barack Obama accused Iranian officials of "hemming and hawing and stalling and avoiding the issues."

But now, squeezed by biting economic sanctions from the international community, Tehran says it's ready to talk.

It's that "sustained pressure" that's bringing Iran's leaders back to the negotiating table, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said this week in Istanbul, "and we hope that it will result in a plan of action that will resolve our disagreements peacefully."

Obama says there's a window for a diplomatic resolution to the tensions between Iran and the international community over its nuclear program, but that window is closing.

Iran's leaders, he says, must "prove to the international community that their intentions are peaceful and that they are, in fact, not pursuing weapons."

A senior administration official outlined to CNN the skeleton of a deal: "There is the potential for a diplomatic resolution that recognizes Iran's right to peaceful nuclear power if it can meet its international obligations and demonstrate that its program is peaceful."

As a signatory to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, Tehran does have the right, like other countries, to enrich uranium for commercial and research reactors. But there's a problem: the same facilities that are used for peaceful enrichment can be used to enrich uranium for a bomb. And that's exactly what many Western countries believe Iran is doing.

Iran hid its initial attempts at enrichment and has been enriching at higher levels, closer to those needed to produce a nuclear weapon. That, Western officials say, undermines trust.

Obama says there's no wiggle room: "My policy here is not going to be one of containment," he says, "My policy is prevention of Iran obtaining nuclear weapons."

If Iran shows up for the April 13 talks, wherever they may be held, another senior U.S. official told CNN, it has to be "ready to engage seriously on its nuclear program."

"In particular, Iran must be prepared to engage concretely on practical steps that can build confidence in its intentions in the nuclear field."

"We are well past the point of pretending that we're just treating Iran like everyone else," intelligence expert Paul Pillar of Georgetown University said. "We aren't."

Any agreement that would be "salable" in the United States or in Israel, he said, "would have to push the Iranians beyond what are the general obligations under the likes of the Nonproliferation Treaty and include more intrusive, special-just-for-the-Iranians safeguards and inspection requirements."

The Iranians complain they're being singled out for strict treatment. As the days before the nuclear talks dwindle, Pillar says he's not surprised by the game-playing over a location.

"The Iranians are skilled bargainers," he said. "Lots of dickering" is to be expected.

"Remember the Vietnam peace talks? We spent a year just dickering over the shape of the conference table," he added.

"I think our proper approach is to expect this to be a long, difficult process," Pillar said. "We should also expect critical voices here, and certainly in Israel, saying, 'Oh, diplomacy is failing, diplomacy is failing.' This (dickering) does not indicate it's failing, it indicates this is the kind of long, difficult bargaining process that, given the players and given the issues, we ought to expect."

    Lastly. In many ways President Carter was lacking but in one way he was a far more Honorable Man than any Pres. that followed him* When the Millitary completely blew thd Iran Captive Resque Mission President Carter took all the blame upon himself. Every cull Pres and millitary failure since Regan has blamed the American people! Our youth are too dumb, we do not give them enough money, the American public lack the moral will and character, guts and stamina, and are lacking Patriotic zeal, have no way of what it takes to win a war and unless you been there they have no right to question what and why they act as they do. Screw Them! I and many others have beem there, done that, and EVERY American has not only the Right to question but a Duty to make them Justify what they do in Our name! And it does not make one bit of differance if they wore a millitary uniform or not! There Are No Super Citizans!

    As far as US/Israel national political and economic interest in the middel east, all of central asian clear up to Georgia, and increasing more by the day Africa with now central Africa becoming primary. And yes two powerful and wealthy voting blocks, Israel and a Jewish/american citizen grouping are the most powerful voting block * Lobby * at leart the most effective, but that is the blame of the american publics ignoance, not Israels. What, after oil and natural gas * there energy needs will more than double in 10 years * are Europes needs? Minerals. And to just lump US/Israel you best not forget Europes willingness to allow and follow as a silent partner.

    GOD WILL NOT HELP THEM THE WICKED JUDGMENT DAY
    We need Leaders that put GOD then Family then Country in that order for with out GOD and Family NONE will have A Country.
    Miss led Middle Easterners have threatened to kill and take measures against Christians sounds like bullying bad boys. That their Mother and Father never showed them right from wrong. All the good on Earth want peace Not War. If you cannot have your way you are going to hurt someone this sounds like a mad men to most of the world.

    If someone really cares for them, give them a Bible with red letter print. That is a red letter edition words that were spoken by are Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With a Pray for them the lost maybe they will be saved, and not go to hell.

    Remember for over a Thousand years you have taken you life at risk from the
    wicked for carrying a Bible. They have burned the Bible in public many times they have cut off the head of anyone carrying one many a times. They have bombed many a Christian Church, Killing many.

    The Persecution of Christians in the Middle East has gone on for over two thousand years.

    The Leaders of many Christian groups have criticizes Muslim leaders and Leaders of governments for failing to intervene after series of deadly attacks on Christians and their Churches in many countries around the World, each Christmas.

    Killing at least 35 Christians Christmas day Church, Nigerian 2011. Killing over 20 Christians New Year's Eve mass Egypt 2011. 50 killed Christians at a Catholic Cathedral
    Baghdad 2010. Over 200 injured Christians Imbaba region by Cairo 2011. The list goes on
    and on and has for many years now. Have you for got so easy many American's like Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr. that was kidnapped and then beheaded in Saudi Arabia in 2004. While thousands gathered and prayed for the wicked to let him go, Till all heard the sound coming from THE PATRIOTIC TRUMPET PLAYER, Monica D. Key Lindbergh playing taps.

    How many Muslim Churches have been attacked or bombed while they are in there
    church by Christians? Answer 0

    The World wants Peace not more wars.

    If you think the wicked want peace read this then go look at some of their web sites!

    There is a video on official Hamas TV that calls for Allah to all kill Jews, Christians,
    Communists and any of their supporters they can find. This video asks Allah to "count
    them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."

    Hamas TV. You will have Air mail incoming very soon. It is Very Sad you do not want
    peace and ask for WAR.

    If you think or believed that Israel-Iran relations will improve or Iran with The
    Persecution of Christians World Wide.

    Just read this

    1997
    Iranian President Mohammad Khatami,
    called Israel an
    "illegal state and a "parasite,"

    The Iranian Chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps,
    "The IRGC"
    Mohammad Ali Jafari
    said "Israel was within the reach of Iranian missiles".
    IRGC is listed by the U.S. Government and our CIA as a terrorist organization.
    With many ties to an assassination campaigns in the
    1980s and early 1990s with paid mercenaries from many countries
    that targeted many opponents, and rigged elections.

    December 2000
    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei he has called Israel many things even went as far as to say it is a
    "cancerous tumor" that should be removed from the region.
    "Act Of War" against Israel.

    JULY 2008
    Iran's foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki said "that Israel was
    not capable of an attack".

    JULY 2008
    Ahmadinejad.....he said, "The Iranian nation never recognized Israel
    and will never ever recognize it.

    Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei he stated, "It is incorrect, irrational,
    pointless and nonsense to say that we are friends of Israeli people...
    we are on a collision course with the occupiers of Palestine and the
    occupiers are the Zionist regime. This is the position of our regime,
    our revolution and our people."

    February 7, 2010, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said
    "the destruction of Israel was assured" According to the daily newspaper Teheran Times.
    Another "Act Of War" against Israel.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei,
    said "that if Israel attacked Iran it would be destroyed within a week"

    Iranian Funding of the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah
    A mural in Tehran, Iran. The mural depicts the emblem of Lebanon's Hezbollah,
    and quotes the founder of The Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, saying:
    "Israel must be destroyed."
    Another "Act Of War" against them.

    Iran has been for years supplying weapons and political support to Hamas an
    organization that is committed to the destruction of Israel by Jihad According
    to Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian National Authority, "Hamas is funded
    By Iran.
    It has claimed it has been financed by peace loving donations, but the donations
    they get are nothing at all like what it receives from Iran for its
    Wicked Deeds and acts. All the Big Bankers of the World can see this.
    Another "Act Of War" against Israel.

    Iran is also supplying another enemy of Israel, the well know terrorist organization
    Hezbollah with more then what you would call just a substantial amount of financial
    support and weapons, explosives and training of how to use them and political,
    diplomatic, and organizational aid while persuading Hezbollah to take wicked actions
    against Israel. Hezbollah's 1985 manifesto listed its four main goals as "Israel's
    final departure from Lebanon as a prelude to its final obliteration" According to
    reports released in February 2010, Hezbollah has received $400 million dollars from
    Iran. That the World knows about.
    Another Clear "Act Of War" against Israel.

    October 11, 2011 the CIA AND THE FBI Of the United States Of America stopped a
    terrorist plot by the Iranian Government Leaders that included (bombing the Israeli
    "as well as Saudi"
    Embassies in Washington, DC and Buenos Aires).
    All Nations involved do claim this as
    An "Act Of War" against them.

    Can you carry a Bible in Iran without them trying to kill you.
    Devil at war with GOD.

    Israel Will Strike Iran, British Intelligence is now saying.

    The 43rd President George W. Bush’s National Security Adviser and Chief Foreign Policy
    Adviser Stephen Hadley is now Warning the world. That there clearly exists a very high
    risk to say the least that Iran and the United States very soon will most likely end up
    in a military conflict. As the deterioration of views and political relations between
    Iran and many other countries as Iran Leader acts more like a little kid. Making all
    the Middle East more unstable.

    With growing reports out of Israel that an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities is likely,
    former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Ron Kessler of Newsmax's in an one
    on one interview that she has no doubts in her mind that Israel will take the necessary
    actions to stop Iran's mullahs from making or getting Nuclear Weapons. Condoleezza Rice
    has a book, Called "No Higher Honor" A Memoir of My Years in Washington," reveals her
    insights into the war against Al-Qaida, what really happened in Iraq, and the real rising
    threat of Iran.
    From her work as the National Security Adviser with President George W. Bush in his first
    term before succeeding Colin Powell to become Secretary of State in his second term.

    May our Lord Jesus Christ and GOD the Father that is in Heaven,
    Guide and Watch over us.

    In this time of TRIBULATION, Strengthen your Faith, and encourage
    all to pray for their souls. The strong in the word of our Lord will Now
    Help the World and be the disciples of our Lord's Word.

    IRAN ... The World is going to Renewable Energy with all the SUNLIGHT we get SOLAR Energy would be very easy to do hear. Do you think the rest of the world will see what we are really doing building more Reactors then we could ever use in a country this size? But we need the electric power to Enrich Uranium to make Many Atomic Nuclear Weapons, to bring the world to a Hellish Place. Just keep this out of the NEWS.

    I don't think Iran needs to prove anything. If they want nuclear weapons, they will develop them. All the complaining and threatening and posturing by the US and Israel will,in the end, accomplish nothing. There is nothing that the US or Israel can do to stop Iran from acquiring such weapons, if Iran chooses to do so. And that is the way it should be.

    The US does not negotiate it Demands, Surrender! It wants Iran to become a Client State.Afghanistan for instance today owes some 7 nations a deat, and at an interest rate that would make a Payday Loan Shark blush, for debts clear back to the 1960s. that will keep that nations people permantly dependent upon satisfying those nations Corporate demands for access to whatever mineral, cheap labor, energy sources and of course whatever millitary support, and Mandatory Yes vote at the UN Forever. Take the nuke energy program of Iran.Why should they be forced to buy enriched uranium from anyone else. which would make whe cost to themselves soar and that would in turn make a demand for more and larger saves of their oil for the hard currency so necesrary for any nation to survive. Irans uranium resouces are vast so they are supposed to sell theyre ores cheap and pay through the nose to have it processed and add on the shipping and handling which would doublel cost.

    Iran made overtures to US to reopen Diplomatic Relations through Turkey, Canada, and France, USState wanted to but Carter listend to the millitary instead. No negotiations and began a complety illegal war * one the UN Comdemed * that attacked and shot an Iranian civilian airliner down killing all passengers * which the US paid through foreign court* they sank Irans shipping boarded its ships and destroyed a few Iranian offshore fil platfors. Using Israei as middleman Regan worked out a deal for them to keep captives until after he was sworn into office. Soon as captives were home Regan broke promice of Diplomatic Recognition of Khomeinis government. Iran agreed and assirted US in many of its covert operations and got flipped the bird by macho a/holes. Helped in Afghanistan Balkans and last I know of was to supply Ethiopia with smal arms so Ethiopia could invade Somalia and help in Yeman. GET THIS@ The other Nation that sent arms to Ethiopia.

    Jurt what is a nuclear nation? Japan has enough anriched Uranium on hand, their own words, to assemble a nuke warhead within 30 days and 10 more shortly there after, and they have the means to deliver them! And it is NOT illeagal, for them or any other nation to have that capability! Belgium has more nuclear warheads stored than anyone outside of Russia and US! India leads thd world in the deveopment of very small nukes, and I mean very, * expletive deleted * small, a solitary man can carry one that has enough enerty to take out a small city. 50,000 population. That is what sent the US president scurrying over there a few years ago and to get the knowhow he gave India almost unlimeted access foq there trade goods and removed the immigration limits. Wonder gow many jobs americans lost over that deal? India gad hidden from world their reasearch and development until they had dozen! They are years ahead of US in that field.

    Iran is enriching to near 20%, allowed under NPT, because the West hasn't allowed sale of the 20% enriched fuel to Tehran's medical reactor. Iran's 700,000 cancer patients are dependent on products of that reactor for their treatment. The fuel is made in a way that couldn't be used for anything else than fuel but the politicians in the US stopped the sale from Argentina to Iran.

Iran wants to level the playing field and I kinda get that so Israel needs to do something to make the Iran's fear to dissipate.

        Just read this

        1997
        Iranian President Mohammad Khatami,
        called Israel an
        "illegal state and a "parasite,"

        The Iranian Chief of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps,
        "The IRGC"
        Mohammad Ali Jafari
        said "Israel was within the reach of Iranian missiles".
        IRGC is listed by the U.S. Government and our CIA as a terrorist organization.
        With many ties to an assassination campaigns in the
        1980s and early 1990s with paid mercenaries from many countries
        that targeted many opponents, and rigged elections.

        December 2000
        Ayatollah Ali Khamenei he has called Israel many things even went as far as to say it is a
        "cancerous tumor" that should be removed from the region.
        "Act Of War" against Israel.

        JULY 2008
        Iran's foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki said "that Israel was
        not capable of an attack".

        JULY 2008
        Ahmadinejad.....he said, "The Iranian nation never recognized Israel
        and will never ever recognize it.

        Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei he stated, "It is incorrect, irrational,
        pointless and nonsense to say that we are friends of Israeli people...
        we are on a collision course with the occupiers of Palestine and the
        occupiers are the Zionist regime. This is the position of our regime,
        our revolution and our people."

        February 7, 2010, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said
        "the destruction of Israel was assured" According to the daily newspaper Teheran Times.
        Another "Act Of War" against Israel.

        Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei,
        said "that if Israel attacked Iran it would be destroyed within a week"

        Iranian Funding of the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah
        A mural in Tehran, Iran. The mural depicts the emblem of Lebanon's Hezbollah,
        and quotes the founder of The Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, saying:
        "Israel must be destroyed."
        Another "Act Of War" against them.

        Iran has been for years supplying weapons and political support to Hamas an
        organization that is committed to the destruction of Israel by Jihad According
        to Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian National Authority, "Hamas is funded
        By Iran.
        It has claimed it has been financed by peace loving donations, but the donations
        they get are nothing at all like what it receives from Iran for its
        Wicked Deeds and acts. All the Big Bankers of the World can see this.
        Another "Act Of War" against Israel.

        Iran is also supplying another enemy of Israel, the well know terrorist organization
        Hezbollah with more then what you would call just a substantial amount of financial
        support and weapons, explosives and training of how to use them and political,
        diplomatic, and organizational aid while persuading Hezbollah to take wicked actions
        against Israel. Hezbollah's 1985 manifesto listed its four main goals as "Israel's
        final departure from Lebanon as a prelude to its final obliteration" According to
        reports released in February 2010, Hezbollah has received $400 million dollars from
        Iran. That the World knows about.
        Another Clear "Act Of War" against Israel.

        October 11, 2011 the CIA AND THE FBI Of the United States Of America stopped a
        terrorist plot by the Iranian Government Leaders that included (bombing the Israeli
        "as well as Saudi"
        Embassies in Washington, DC and Buenos Aires).
        All Nations involved do claim this as
        An "Act Of War" against them.

        Can you carry a Bible in Iran without them trying to kill you.
        Devil at war with GOD.

        Israel Will Strike Iran, British Intelligence is now saying.

        The 43rd President George W. Bush’s National Security Adviser and Chief Foreign Policy
        Adviser Stephen Hadley is now Warning the world. That there clearly exists a very high
        risk to say the least that Iran and the United States very soon will most likely end up
        in a military conflict. As the deterioration of views and political relations between
        Iran and many other countries as Iran Leader acts more like a little kid. Making all
        the Middle East more unstable.

        With growing reports out of Israel that an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities is likely,
        former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told Ron Kessler of Newsmax's in an one
        on one interview that she has no doubts in her mind that Israel will take the necessary
        actions to stop Iran's mullahs from making or getting Nuclear Weapons. Condoleezza Rice
        has a book, Called "No Higher Honor" A Memoir of My Years in Washington," reveals her
        insights into the war against Al-Qaida, what really happened in Iraq, and the real rising
        threat of Iran.
        From her work as the National Security Adviser with President George W. Bush in his first
        term before succeeding Colin Powell to become Secretary of State in his second term.

        May our Lord Jesus Christ and GOD the Father that is in Heaven,
        Guide and Watch over us.

        In this time of TRIBULATION, Strengthen your Faith, and encourage
        all to pray for their souls. The strong in the word of our Lord will Now
        Help the World and be the disciples of our Lord's Word.

        United We Will Always Stand That
        In GOD We Trust
        True Patriots

        The Lord's Little Helper
        Paul Felix Schott

        PS.
        Further diligence is required stay on your guard and watch. The LORD’s Amy will come soon enough.

        GOD Bless You and Your Love ones
        Give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ every day.

        READ
        Luke 21:20-22

        IRAN ... The World is going to Renewable Energy with all the SUNLIGHT we get SOLAR Energy would be very easy to do hear. Do you think the rest of the world will see what we are really doing building more Reactors then we could ever use in a country this size? But we need the electric power to Enrich Uranium to make Many Atomic Nuclear Weapons, to bring the world to a Hellish Place. Earthquakes could cause us the bad mishap or a catastrophic failure 97 million Iranians could die. Just keep this out of the NEWS.
