TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said Tuesday it was ready for "serious negotiations" on its nuclear program, but a semi-official news agency said the government was unwilling to abandon nuclear enrichment the key U.S. demand.
Top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani delivered a written response to ambassadors of Britain, China, Russia, France, Germany and Switzerland to a package of incentives aimed at persuading Iran to roll back on its nuclear program.
Larijani refused to disclose whether the response included an offer to suspend uranium enrichment, and no details of Iran's response were released. The state-run television quoted Larijani as telling the diplomats Iran "is prepared as of Aug. 23 to enter serious negotiations" with the countries that proposed the incentives package.
But the semi-official Fars news agency reported that Iran rejected calls to suspend "nuclear activities" or uranium enrichment and "instead has offered a new formula to resolve the issues through dialogue."
Iran delivered its response to the incentives offer nine days before a U.N. Security Council deadline for Iran to halt enrichment or face possible economic and political sanctions.

Iran's unprecedented refusal to allow access to its underground facility at Natanz could seriously hamper U.N. attempts to ensure Tehran is not trying to produce nuclear weapons, and might violate the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, diplomats and U.N. officials told The Associated Press.

Then forget all talk. It's nothing but a stall anyway.

Guess that's it then... let'em have it.
That pic is just calling to be photoshopped with the Bomb Magnet...
Let's through about a dozen resolutions at Iran ..... that'll teach 'em.
G-d help whichever party is in power when an American city is destroyed by an Islamic nuke. I'm talking angry mobs pulling politicians from their homes and lynching them.
Let's throw about a dozen resolutions at Iran ..... that'll teach 'em.
While I don't see any reason why Iran should not develop a nukular power industry and electrical utility, at the same time they should not be surprised if they make somebody anxious with their nuke bomb intent and get nuked themselves out of the blue some morning.
If you don't give up your nuclear ambitions we're going to go have another meeting!!!!
Hopefully....soon to be a cloud of vapor...
A photoshop combining those two pics....
How about a dozen strategic nukes (I'm talking the big ones)...but...if we most go non-nuclear, we can bring back B-52 carpet bombings from the bad...good ole days...
I would say an airburst at 20,000 feet will work nicely.
It's making my head hurt. Jon Bennett Ramsey is making my head hurt. Mike Nifong is making my head hurt. The war in Iraq is making my head hurt. Life, in general, is making my head hurt. Too much hurt, not enough aspirin in the world. Too many crazies -- HEADACHE!
I'll probably be part of that mob.
