Skip to comments.U.S. Defines Its Demands for New Round of Talks With Iran (0's Big "Last Chance" Ultimatum)
Posted on 04/08/2012 11:26:19 AM PDT by mojito
The Obama administration and its European allies plan to open new negotiations with Iran by demanding the immediate closing and ultimate dismantling of a recently completed nuclear facility deep under a mountain, according to American and European diplomats.
They are also calling for a halt in the production of uranium fuel that is considered just a few steps from bomb grade, and the shipment of existing stockpiles of that fuel out of the country, the diplomats said.
That negotiating position will be the opening move in what President Obama has called Irans last chance to resolve its nuclear confrontation with the United Nations and the West diplomatically. The hard-line approach would require the countrys military leadership to give up the Fordo enrichment plant outside the holy city of Qum, and with it a huge investment in the one facility that is most hardened against airstrikes.
While it is unclear whether the allies would accept anything less than closing and disassembling Fordo, government and outside experts say the terms may be especially difficult for Irans leaders to accept when they need to appear strong in the face of political infighting.

The first piece of evidence is this piece in the Slimes, telling how Barry's gonna get real tough with the mullahs this time. Sure. The mullahs will tell Barry to pound sand, and the WH spinners already know this.
Which brings me the second piece of evidence published this weekend in the Compost (notice the nice symmetry - one big scoop for the Slimes and another for the Compost - a sure sign of major spin campaign) and posted earlier on FR but I'll link to it for those who missed it. That story leaked supposed US intelligence that lo! miracle of miracles! the mullahs aren't really trying to build a warhead, or if they are they're a couple of years from being able to accomplish it.
Notice the brilliance of this WH grand strategy: First, Barry looks tough - he's giving those mullahs one last chance and this time he really really means it. Except that the WH knows that the mullahs will give Barry the finger. So what then, Mr. Tough Guy?
Ah! You see! It doesn't really matter! Those darned mullahs aren't anywhere near getting an actual nuke, so we don't really need to do anything!
Now marvel at the cynicism. Marvel at the conviction that the MSM will carry water for this disaster. Stand amazed at how this actually aids Iran and punishes Israel. Wait for the WH sniping at the Israelis in the coming week when these talks fail and they express their dismay and anger. Because there's one thing for sure, the WH isn't going to let a bunch of cranky Israelis spoil all the fun - they've got a campaign to win!
See you at the next 0bama2012 fund raiser!
What happened to Zer0’s “unconditional” talks with Iran?
One of many. Who's counting?
Brand New Last Chance!!!! ......coming in May
Speak loudly and carry no stick at all.
Never bring a stick to a nuclear weapons fight.
Obama is an idiot.
Gotta disagree,Jim.He's a willing co-conspirator.If *only* it were true that he was nothing more than an idiot.
Anyone who doesn’t believe in freedom is an idiot.
“What happened to Zer0s unconditional talks with Iran?”
He didn’t have any pre-conditions, but Iran did.
Condition #1. You don’t talk about nuclear weapons development.
Condition #2. You don’t talk about nuclear weapons development.
...for peaceful purposes.
Oh...I see. Since that worked out so well for the rag heads, he's decided to employ those tactics himself...with no intent on backing them up.
This should go well.
Obama is a good example of someone who is clever but not wise.
Obama is a good example of someone who is a traitor but not exposed.
I posted on another thread that if Israel sees a nuke in Iran’s future, Israel might give them one.
I suppose little bammy will also take a"hard-line approach" by telling Iran this is their "last chance" to give back that RQ-170 drone while they are at it, darn it!
No, they'll give Zippy the Hawaiian Birth certificate symbol.
What happened to our DEMAND they return our drone/
Seeing as how the Mullahs have already publically
rejected Obama’s opening gambit what does he have
Imanutjob just LOL at Little Bari.
All while Israel tries to keep Obamah from feeding Iran with leaked intel.
I used to believe that fairy tale too, but no more. Bibi will not launch a preemptive strike, and you can take that to the bank.
Do you think Iran will strike Israel once they get the nuke? If so, do you think Bibi will sit back and let them hit first knowing Israel will be destroyed? I just can’t believe he’d allow that to happen.
He wouldnt do it on purpose but it could happen because he waffles, or lets Zero hold him back. Truth is I lay this at the feet of GW, no way he did not know who this guy was. He had the power of the CIA, SS, FBI and we are led to believe that no one knew?
