Annan: Iran won't stop enrichment
Jerusalem Post ^ | Sept. 3, 2006 | AP

Posted on 09/03/2006 11:38:32 AM PDT by FairOpinion

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said Sunday afternoon following a meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the Iranian leader had expressed willingness to cooperate with the international community to reach a solution to the escalating crisis around Iran's nuclear enrichment program.

However, Annan stressed, Iran remained steadfast in its refusal to cease enrichment ahead of talks.

Annan's polite way of saying that the U.N. is nothing but a toothless, old dog. It's time for the U.N. crowd to turn out the lights and go home. The party is over. Their way isn't working.

Kofi reminds me of those ineffectual parents I deal with who threaten their child with claims of using various punishments and then show zero follow through when the child continues to misbehave. It's no wonder that his own son was involved in the oil-for-food scandal.

And in the meantime:

Iran given extra time for new nuclear talks

http://english.people.com.cn/200609/04/eng20060904_299244.html


The European Union (EU) agreed on Saturday to give Iran extra time, probably two weeks, to clarify ambiguity on its nuclear response to a package of incentives.

The decision was made during talks on the issue among 25 EU foreign ministers in Lappeenranta, southern Finland, on Saturday, two days after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran had failed to meet the UN deadline of Aug. 31 to halt uranium enrichment.

The ministers reiterated their full support for EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who will hold talks with Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani early next week to clarify ambiguity on Iran's nuclear response to the offer of incentives by the world's six major powers.

In its 21-page response to the offer by Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany, Iran refused to stop enrichment but said it was ready for more talks.

Diplomats said the EU ministers wanted to give diplomacy another chance before any sanctions were imposed on Iran, although Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday that Iran would not give up its right to nuclear technology.

In my view Ahmadinejad is more dangerous as a charismatic than Hitler. He is able to project a 'warm fuzzy' side that Hitler wasn't able to. That picture is a good example. Beware of 'charming' fanatics. Also, although he doesn't have the relative military capacity that Germany had for World War II, his reach goes well beyond the Iranian borders in that he appeals to radical Muslims world wide. This is a dangerous man.

And this was no courtesy handshake -- I just saw the video on FoxNews and they kept shaking their hands, as if they never wanted to let go of each other.

A commentator on FoxNews said a few weeks ago, that Kofi is going to go to Iran and tell them how to pretend to cooperate, but not really do anything, and sure enough, that's exactly what happened.

Someone needs to make a cartoon with Ahmadinejad as the pupper master, and Kofi Annan and the UN as his puppets.

The U.N. only works when the US of A makes it work--the U.S. military to be exact.

So Iran is willing to cooperate by paying Kofi and the UN bribes and Kofi and the UN will be steadfast in his refusal to take any steps against Iran?

Perhaps we better consider the diplomacy excuse over and get down to putting an end to Iraq and it's leaders. When they wheel out an atomic warhead on an ICBM from NK it will be to late for anyone.

I dunno, it looks more like this to me:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, left, laughs at, not with, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan during their meeting in Teheran.

Wow! Who would have thought?

Iran has said all along that this would be their answer. Russia and China have made it clear that they would back them on this. Kofi and the UN are the ones dragging this out, hoping to wear down the will of the United States. We are fools to play this silly game.
