LONDON -- President Barack Obama suggested that Iran may have some right to nuclear energy _ provided it proves by the end of the year that its aspirations are peaceful.

SNIP SNIP

"What I do believe is that Iran has legitimate energy concerns, legitimate aspirations," Obama said, adding that the international community also "has a very real interest" in preventing a nuclear arms race.

I guess Barry needs someone to make him understand that there are real, evil people in the world and they want the bomb more than anything.

As the poster above just said, game over, we just forfeited.

Iran is sitting on millions and millions of barrels of oil and they need nuclear power? Are conservatives the only ones who see what is going on?

The Obamaloon is reaching depths of idiocy not seen in the modern world. His “institutions of higher learning” (and I really have misgivings about using that word should seriously consider a recall of those worthless degrees that they sold him.

Funny, obama won’t let us have nuclear power. Phoney excuse he’s got for Iran, now, isn’t it?

And so does the USA.

let’s build some reactors already, for crying out loud.

We need to build reactors here in America, and there is no GOOD reason not to do so.

I suppose the problem is that fission reactors produce no carbon, so it would actually still be possible for America to compete under Cap-n-Trade if we had more nuclear power.

Where is the problem if power is abundant, cheap AND clean?

Not only is Obama a wuss, but he a patsy, too.

Iran has oil up the bazoo; they have NO need for nuclear, and even the worst idiots in the various nations’ governments know that Iran doesn’t want “peaceful” nuclear power - they just want bombs, bombs, bombs!

And they plan to use the bombs, too - right on Israel.

World War III, here we come.

Man, this new administration really, realLy, really SUCKS!

Crank in the “M5” factor. The Ultimate Computer on Star Trek realized that it had done wrong and was in error. Its last words were “This unit must die”, and then it turned off all the ship’s power and defenses.

We’re seeing that happen to our country now.

The problem lies in the fact that such a scenario would put more money in the pockets of Americans while reducing business costs, thus encouraging economic growth and weakening the government's ability to nationalize the private sector.

Wasn’t this the Bush administration’s policy, namely, that Iran can have nuclear power reactors as long as we’re sure they aren’t developing nuclear weapons?

It is just as John Bolton warned; the people now in office believe in talking. If the talking fails to work, they believe in more talking. If those talks fail, they believe in more talking...

Liberals are congenitally incapable of comprehending the fact that there are some people on this Earth who are unreasonable and with whom you cannot negotiate and reasonably expect to achieve anything but your own defeat. Barack Obama is the leader of this chronically naive cadre.

He is incapable of comprehending the truth about people like Kim and Ahmadinejad. To call him "stupid" is to misjudge him and compliment him, he is a fool and no amount of information or education can rescue him from his foolishness. He will never understand the concept.

Yes, but W tried to actually enforce it by having Iran stop processing their own stuff and have them buy it from other countries.

We need to build reactors here in America, and there is no GOOD reason not to do so.

I imagine it's for the same nefarious "reasons" we haven't built a new oil refinery since 1975. The same "reasons" the left refuses to drill ANWR. As long as there is an energy crisis in the country the left can exert control and advance it's NWO agenda. Don't sweat this, the end game is almost done.

Israeli General Baidatz: Iran may have material for nukes this Year

By the end of the summer, Teheran could have enough low-grade uranium to build a nuclear bomb, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, head of Military Intelligence’s research division, warned the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday....

Baidatz’s comments those of his boss, OC Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin, who told the committee last month that “Iran is intentionally advancing its nuclear development in such a way so as not to cross any nuclear red lines, by enriching low-grade uranium that is not sufficient for weapons development, but that can quickly be adapted to weapons-grade uranium in such a short period of time that the process can’t be sabotaged.”
