TEHRAN, Iran Iran's nuclear chief on Monday proposed to allow the U.N. nuclear watchdog "full supervision" of its nuclear activities for five years provided that sanctions against Tehran are lifted, but the official did not give details of his offer.
The United Nations has imposed four rounds of Security Council sanctions over Tehran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment, a technology that can be used to produce nuclear fuel or materials for an atomic bomb.
Iran's nuclear program is already subject to routine IAEA inspections. IAEA cameras monitor Iran's nuclear activities. including its contentious uranium enrichment sites.
Vice President Fereidoun Abbasi told the semiofficial ISNA news agency, "We proposed that the agency keep Iran's nuclear program and activities under full supervision for five years provided that sanctions against Iran are lifted."
He didn't elaborate what he meant by "full supervision," or how far the International Atomic Energy Agency could go in trying to prevent Tehran's nuclear program from producing weapons. Iran has always insisted that its program is peaceful, but the IAEA has give successively stronger warnings over the years about potential military dimensions to Iran's nuclear program.
The U.S. and its allies accuse Iran of using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to develop nuclear weapons. Iran has denied the charges, saying its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity and producing isotopes to treat medical patients.
Iran says it voluntarily implemented the Additional Protocol to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty as a confidence-building gesture, but its parliament passed legislation in 2007 forcing the government to end the cooperation after the country was referred to the U.N. Security Council for sanctions over its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment.
Tehran says it remains committed to its obligations under NPT but is not required to allow intrusive inspections.

We know Ron Paul would go for it. Will Obama?
The probably already got enough material for a few nukes.
Last week they are talking peace with the world. No need for nukes, no one should have them they said. Now they will open their facilities for inspections... What changed.
Lets see, Pakistan has a new reactor on line producing plutonium, they probably don’t need their own uranium anymore. Pakistan’s reactor will produce enough plutonium for about 6 nukes per month.... per month.
Iran needs about 24 nukes to take out the coastal cities of the US and major European cities as well as Israel of course. They don’t want to be attacked while they build their arsenal. They will use the Club-K container rocket launchers they are buying from Russia. 4 cruise missiles per container launched from ship, truck or train and indistinguishable from any other container, all for only $15 million per container.
For instance, one container on an old freighter could take out DC, NY, Philly and Boston while another took out LS, SF and SD. That would shake us to our core. That’s called when the SHTF.
We have little time before we are toast.
Al-tarquayya & kitman = Moslim OK from MadMo to lie to the non-Moslim.
Islam is a cancer.
Radiation is the answer.
Another debate is coming on Capitol Hill. This one relates to withholding funds from the United Nations. The UN has become an inept, impotent organization at best and a purveyor of rape and other crimes at worst. Why should the US pay for an organization that trades Food for sex with underage girls, is a network of pedophiles, cannot decide on a final definition of terrorism, cannot keep its own members (who have sworn to uphold and defend the sanctity of life) from slaughtering their own citizens (Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Iraq, Iran, China, need I continue?), and regularly votes AGAINST US interests and resolutions?
