Barack Obama raises spectre of nuclear conflict as Allies find site near Iran holy city
Catherine Philp in New York and Francis Elliott in Pittsburgh
Britain, France and the United States set the stage for a dramatic confrontation with Iran when they revealed the existence of a secret nuclear site inside a mountain near the holy city of Qom as evidence of Tehrans efforts to deceive the international community.
The coup de théâtre came at the opening of the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh after three days of intense diplomacy at the UN General Assembly. President Obama, President Sarkozy and Gordon Brown took turns to demand that Iran disclose its nuclear ambitions and threaten new sanctions.
Later, Mr Obama raised the spectre of military conflict, saying that failure by Iran to give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons would lead down a path that is going to lead to confrontation.
Iran is on notice that when we meet with them on October 1 they are going to have to come clean and they are going to have to make a choice, he said.

As if their choice hasn't already been made.
The question is: Who is Barack Hussein Obama's ally in this - Iran or Israel?
There is much more evidence the IAEA is holding back on Iranian nuclear activity.
I’m not getting warm fuzzies about this fiasco. I just took a look at Drudge and it appears to me that Obama might be using this “crisis” to create a “Rally Round The Flag Boys”, 9/11 moment in order to get his ratings up and his CommieCare passed. I’m probably full of it but I’m always very skeptical. This is too convenient right now. Obama needs something like this to make him appear “presidential”. I’m not buying it.
What happened to Obama’s pronouncements of a nuke-free world? I guess he thinks if disarms the US and then wags his finger at Iran, they’ll dismantle their nukes too and everything will be well. Obama’s on crack.
Neither. He's Sunni. (IMO) He'll do what suits the Saudi's.
The there’s this, which is getting virtually no coverage:
SEPTEMBER 23, 2009 WED : (REPORT : DEMOCRAT FUNDRAISER NEMAZEE PLEADS NOT GUILTY -See HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW KASHANCHI, BANK FRAUD, CITIBANK, BANK OF AMERICA, HSBC, IRAN, HILLARY CLINTON, OBAMA, JOHN KERRY?) Many of the fake documents used by a leading Democratic Party fund-raiser to defraud HSBC and Citigroup Inc were made by his brother-in-law, U.S. prosecutors said on Friday. Authorities arrested and charged Shahin Kashanchi, brother-in-law of indicted fund-raiser Hassan Nemazee, who donated to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leading Democrats over the years.
Nemazee pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court to defrauding a total of three banks Bank of America was the other out of $292 million in loan proceeds.
Based on e-mail traffic between Kashanchi and Nemazee, Kashanchi was regularly producing what Kashanchi referred to as the normal quarterly statements for one of the non-existent collateral accounts, among other things, the office of the U.S. Attorney in New York and the FBI said in a statement.
Kashanchi would simply create phony account statements designed to look like real account statements, but bearing account numbers for accounts that did not exist and reflecting balances that purported to establish Nemazees great wealth.

This clown is out for the nobel prize. He will sacrifice the security of this nation for his own agrandizment! And when he is gone he will move to kenya and we’ll be hit by the chins and any other two bit military power with a nuke.
Anyone want to bet that he gives up over half of our long range bomber fleet in negotiations with the russians? Including the B-2!
I think it is time now, the Iranian sites are going to be hit. There are so many -but, I think this is bogus about the one at Qom. Why is it that all their cities are holy cities? If its holy, don’t put a nuke in there morons.
Maybe the Russians have had enough trading now to give their consent to hit Iran, now that they got Obama to kill the missile shield in Poland, the exchange was probably including the green light to let Israel do the heavy lifting on bombing the Iranian nuke sites. They have to, self preservation.
I guess the sanctions by the euroweenies were not enough to dissuade Iran from the allure of nukes - imagine that.
Globalsecurity.org website has fewer maps now on the sites at Natanz and Araz and Bushehr, but there are still decent descriptions here of the installations and activities of years past - see the links on right side of the web page. It is pretty scary, the Iranians have been going after nukes full tilt for many years now. They will whack Israel with a nuke as soon as they are able, Prez Imanutjob has made that very clear.
Covert Reactor ?
I TOTALLY agree with you,exactly what I have been thinking all day.
This may force Israel to go for broke.
This kind of operation requires decisiveness. I don't think Barry or his minions have big balls.
This will turn into an unnecessarily drawn-out and messy operation.
For a lot of reasons, if the Israelis can do it, they should do it and not wait for the US to act.
