    Iran Open To Ties With U.S.

    But threats won't stop nuke program, top official says

    By Barbara Slavin, USA Today

    TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's top national security official said Monday that his government wants better relations with the United States, but he advised the Bush administration to stop threatening Iran and said his country will not yield to demands that it permanently stop its effort to enrich uranium — which the White House says is intended to make a nuclear bomb.



    USATODAY.com - Iran open to ties with U.S.

    The fact that they think the US does not have the means or the power to topple their government is rather highlights their lack of knowledge about the US. Strange how these folks with medievil philosophies fail to realize the realities of the modern world.

    From what I've read of the possibilities for "regime change" in Iran, the US is more than ready and has been preparing since even before the invasion of Iraq.

    (per the excellent Atlantic Monthly piece about wargaming the operations to defeat Iran's regime or take away their nuclear capability)

    Brazen chest thumping and bullshit bravado are trademarks of muslim governments in the region. Remember the "Mother of all battles" which turned out to be the mother of all ass kickings?

    I wanted to be over in Iraq during that invasion. Maybe I'll get to be in this one, if it happens.

    The United States and the European Union believe Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, but Tehran says its program is for peaceful, civilian purposes.

    Perhaps someone could post actual evidence of Iran's ability to produce a nuclear weapon.
    That would allow us to argue on fact, not fiction.

    Of course you can't because there is none.

    What kind of evidence would that be ?? Do you think that posters like us have any detailed information about what is specifically going on in those nuclear facilities ??
