Negotiations? or stalling for time?

Many of the left have been continually repeating the meme that President Bush should have spent more time in trying to get the UN to uphold their own sanctions against Saddam Hussein...then they point to some member countries of the EU negotiating with Iran on the their nuclear program as the "way it SHOULD have been done".

Yeah Right. Europe has offered Iran trade and technological, and financial aid "carrots" to try to forstall using a military "stick" in the event that Iran goes ahead with it's troubleing programs. The result? lets just see what the Iranian attitude is:

Iran will never scrap its nuclear program, and talks with Europeans are intended to protect the country's nuclear achievements, not negotiate an end to them."(emphasis mine)
Remarks by Ali Agha Mohammadi, spokesman of Iran's powerful Supreme National Security Council.

The Iranians seem to be "troubled by the slowness of the pace of the talks", yet they seem to be unwilling to concede anything to move those talks forward. In essence, they are using nuclear blackmail without even having any nuclear weapons. Just imagine the problem that would arise should they ever attain the status of a nuclear power!

The important thing to realize here is that the Iranians themselves are SAYING that they will never give up their nuclear programs, and yet still expect other countries to negotiate the ending of those programs in good faith. Even the Moonbat left should have the sense to realize that such a position is just plain ludricrous.

The Iranis claim that their nuclear programs are only for energy, not for weapons......in one of the most oil rich nations in the world? Only a recent product of our public schools would fall for such an obvious disconnect between rhetoric and reality.
