    Help Us? You mean the U.S., or the State of Israel?

    On the subject of "need" for nuclear power - for electricity generation, why would they need it? They float on a pool of oil the size of California.

    Or Europe, are supposed allies via NATO. Then again, there is Saudi Arabia, by no means a friend of Iran, which happens to supply a significant amount of our $68 a barrel oil. :coffee3: Of course, it's so much more 'right' to blame the Joos.

    It'll be 5-10 years before Iran can spin down the 90% pure uranium needed to produce weapons grade material. If Dubbyuh would stop his damned sabre-rattling long enough, and keep supplying the youth market in Iran with the doses of American culture they love, the radical nutcases will soon be an unpleasant memory. They would have been so by now had the little twit not started spouting his crap about the "Axis of Evil".

    The Iranians were willing to negotiate a deal...everything on the table...But Dubbyuh's Administration bitch-slapped the mesengers (The Swiss), and the gains made by Iranian moderates evaporated like the morning dew. As a result, we have a certifiable nutcase for Iran's president.

    Wishful thinking dude. You would place the survival of our society on the hopes that Iranians will embrace Western culture and oust their radical government.

    You mean like the last "fair" elections they held?

    Thousands of centrifuges are required to develop a nuclear warhead. Iran currently has less than two hundred. So no need to hit the panic button and imagine Iran is days from being a nuclear power.

    Still, diplomacy is needed to quell that day from dawning. Sanctions are not the answer because leaders can always find someone to trade goods with. Yet, sanctions and the isolating of Iran seem to be the way the current admin is headed.

    Actually there is a high element of truth to this. Bush Admin diplomacy in regards to Iran over the past 5 years has been an unforgivable disaster. This does not excuse the Iranian mullah's crimes and aggression, but we must recognize our mistakes so as to not repeat them in the future.
