Skip to comments.Obama's Message To Iran: Civilian Nukes Okay
Posted on 04/06/2012 12:16:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
President Barack Obama sent a verbal message to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei by way of Turkey, stating for the first time that the United States would accept a civilian nuclear program in the Islamic Republic if there is a guarantee it will never be used militarily, the Washington Post reported.
Obama, in a statement relayed by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan last week, said that if Iran proved it was not building a nuclear weapon, then Washington would let Iran develop a peaceful nuclear program.
"It's a strange message to send," a critical Bret Stephens, the Wall Street Journal columnist, said on Fox News on Friday. "What's worrisome is that almost every country that has acquired nuclear weapons capability has done so through the ruse of a civilian nuclear program."

Is that a Trojan horse I see falling from the sky?
You’re on your own, and you’re surrounded.
Hugs and kisses,
Iran is directly responsible for the deaths of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention the Beruit and other bombings.
How generous of President Downgrade to sell out America again.
Will Obama also authorize his USA ‘Civilian Forces’ to have nuclear weapons.....this sets a precedent??
And once again, this week’s Neville Chamberlain Appeasement Award is presented to Barack “Sellout” OBama!!
I guess his choices were A) Attack or B) tell them as long as they aren’t for bombing Israel, it’ll be okay.
What we should be doing is telling Israel we’ll pitch a bitch if they hit Iran but that’s all we’ll do. And after this, I don’t think it’ll be long before Israel makes it’s move.
If he makes them promise not to let the Imam in the well out what could go wrong? /s
They’re all civilians now.
How many more of these ‘concessions’ will it take to wake the USA public up to the fact that Obama is a conniving multi tongued politician who with the help of his enablers such as Soros wants to change the USA to be at the mercy of others, probably Muslim powers.
We’ve been down this road w/ N. Korea. Some idiots never learn.
Yet another count for the indictment.
Bill Clinton and N.Korea Part II. The Axis of Evil is alive and thriving under 0zer0.
Yes, the idiots at Free Republic.
US policy that has been around since the non-proliferation treaty is that any nation that signs the treaty is entitled to civilian use of nukes. This includes Iran.
This didn't start with Obama.
Those nations that haven't signed the treaty but are thought to have nuke weapons are India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea.
Do you think Iran’s nuke program is for civilian use only?
Did you know that Iran has had medical nukes for a long time?
Medical nuclear material is far less dangerous than weapons grade.
Obama should change his name to BARRACK CHAMBERLAIN. We have without a doubt the worst president in the history of the U.S. coupled with the worst advisors ever. One and done for sure.
It’s not okay.
Satirical. idiotic, off the wall, strange response, humorous, insightful, investigative posts are the norm here.
You're saying that some of the best informed, educated, high tax paying and economically struggling individuals, from many walks of social life are idiots
I strongly suggest you attempt a look in a mirror to recognize that word.
Obama gets on one knee when he gives a bow.
Why isn’t Greenpeace and all of the other usual greeny groups protesting this. If Iran can have nuclear power plants, why can’t we have them?
You would think, given the importance, that freepers would know more about it. Since the freepers don't have a clue, they must be idiots.
Islam is a theocracy, there’s no distinction over there. Obama knows this. He just can’t help lying every time he speaks, it’s the only thing that comes natural to him.
And to finish your sentence, “...AT THE WORSE TIME POSSIBLE!” I’m starting to believe this is Armageddon in the works and 0bama is there by design.
Don't look up. The Trojan Horse has already been welcomed into the White House.
