Iran pushing boundaries before Geneva talks

Missile testing comes on the heels of sanction talk from the U.S.


 

With the admission of a uranium-enriching plant, Iran is forcing the world’s hand. On Thursday, when Iran meets in Geneva with the five members of the U.N. Security Council, its nuclear program is first on the list of topics. On Saturday, President Barack Obama threatened “sanctions that would bite” if Iran didn’t fall in line. And defense secretary Robert Gates reiterated that on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday—the same day that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard shot off short-range missiles. While Britain, France, Russia and the U.S. are prepared to enforce economic sanctions, China is reluctant due to its heavy Iranian oil imports.

Iran pushing boundaries before Geneva talks

  1. The Iranians are launching missiles and building nuclear facilities and The West are still stuck on stupid with their threats of sanctions.

    How long do the Iranians have to misbehave before our leaders start to take Iranian wickedness seriously.

    How long do the Iranians have to mis-behave before our leaders start to take Iranian wickedness seriously.

  3. Iran has run circles around the West and The Obama. So sad, too bad, sucks to be us. But since no one in the West is willing to tackle the problem, I fear that we are doomed.

  4. Ahmadinejad knows that Obama is all talk, little follow-through. Without the willingness to back words up with actions that Bush showed, there's not much deterrence available to force Iranian cooperation. They're pushing to see where their limits are. It may end up being the Israelis who do the pushing back.

    Large-scale wars start this way.

    • Any War started will be by the Israel's, they have nothing but the retribution and hatred of other peoples, no better than the Nazi's and aged camp guards whom they seek continuing vengence to this day.
      The so called peaceful Democracy of the Middle East Israel is nothing but a War mogering nation of so called superior peoples wou will destroy anyone who dissagrees with their policies, they as always control thoughful mindlessness in consumerism policies of media subliminal messaging, do not need a Hitler to see this train of thought, just view their State policies of (we are the chosen ones,) taken to extremes and as always, as now the forty pieces of silver is the other ninty nine percent of humans who have opinions?
