    White House Press Secretary Gibbs says today that we (this administration) don't believe that Iran has nuclear capabilities.

    Great, because you don't believe it makes it so.

    If they dont believe Iran has nuclear capability now (and they might not) why are they putting sanctions on the Revolutionary Guards?
    I guess all that talk about "sitting down with Iran and talking to them" from the campaign really didn't amount to much, did it?

    Welcome to the Board,

    Typically members want links to prove or indicate the validity of your statements. Not that they actually go to the link and read the articles. They just get all fuzzy with security.

    I trust your statement on the other hand. Gibbs is an idiot and makes ridiculous statements on a daily basis. (sorry no link... it's common knowledge)

    Let's see now, they have come along way on their missile technology, CHECK

    They are perfecting their nuclear enrichment capabilities, CHECK

    They pose a threat.. CHECK>> CHECK>>> CHECK

    You know who else doesn't believe it?

    The American intelligence community. Considering their access and analysis, and that they're the ones the president gets his info on such matters from, that seems like the only appropriate position. The National Intelligence Estimate by 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, including the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency, assessed with fair confidence that Iran has no nuclear weapons research program.

    They notified the IAEA a year before they were required to by the NPT about their nuclear power plant and it's open to IAEA inspectors. So they haven't broken any laws or agreements related to nuclear development.

    When you add that fact to this one:

    This one:

    This one:

    and this one:

    It doesn't make sense to come to any other conclusion. It makes sense to be cautious, but all evidence points clearly to the same position and nearly all of the "evidence" used to suggest otherwise is little more than chest-beating about empty rhetoric and perceived existential threats rather than the facts of the case.
