U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warned Iran on Monday that it faced more sanctions if it defied a two-week deadline to agree to curb its nuclear program.

Rice said Iran was stalling and must give a "serious answer" within the deadline set by six world powers which offered trade and technical incentives if Tehran halts its uranium enrichment. The West fears Iran wants to build a nuclear bomb.

"We are in the strongest possible position to demonstrate that if Iran does not act then it is time to go back to that (sanctions) track," Rice said,

They’re serious alright, but they are seriously determined to fudge, delay, temporize, wriggle, smooze, bribe, and do any other thing they find useful to avoid a physical attack on their nuclear facilities until it’s too late.

The meeting with the Iranian officials was not a ‘talk’ or a ‘conference’. It was an ultimatum being delivered.

Thinking they can threaten people with “sanctions” whose personal belief system justifies suicide is the height of stupidity.

Rice, Bush and the COngresscritters are as clueless on this issue as they have proven themselves on so many others.

Pray for America - pray for civilization.

The answer Condi is “No” and “Never”.

What is it about “No” and “Never” that you do not understand?
