Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran Will NOT Stop Uranium Enrichment

Posted on

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (R) waves to journalists as Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili stands in the background before an official meeting in Tehran July 1, 2008. Iran said on Saturday its nuclear stance had not changed and it was ready to hold talks with world major powers over its disputed nuclear program based on international regulations.

The trial balloon of a few days ago – “freeze-for-freeze” – turns out to be bull – just like all of the others. Iran will not halt uranium enrichment.

Iran’s nuclear program remains unchanged, a government spokesman Saturday, indicating that Tehran has no plans to meet a key Western demand that it stop enriching uranium.

Gholam Hossein Elham’s insistence that Iran would not change the central part of its controversial program came a day after Iran sent the European Union its response to an international proposal to curb its program in exchange for economic incentives. The content of the response has not been made public.

“Iran’s stand regarding its peaceful nuclear program has not changed,” Mr. Elham told reporters.

Iran’s ambassador to Belgium presented the response to the package to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana in Brussels on Friday, and Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, spoke with Mr. Solana by phone, Iranian state media has reported.

European officials said they were studying the Iranian response and were consulting among themselves and with America, Russia, and China on what to do next.

What is the surprise?

The Iranian Mullahs covet nuclear weapons and will do anything to obtain them, including the big stall game while they enrich sufficient uranium for BREAKOUT CAPABILITY.

Negotiations with Iran have gone nowhere. The United States and Israel need to shit or get off the pot.

Barack Obama Watch: The Problem is Still Hillary

Hillary Clinton I Spies Barack Obama at You Tube Debate last July

Barack Obama continues to struggle with supporters of Hillary Clinton for President according to a new CNN poll.

One week after Sen. Hillary Clinton made a public show of unity with Sen. Barack Obama, a new survey suggests supporters of the New York senator are increasingly less likely to follow her lead.

A growing number of Clinton supporters polled say they may stay home in November instead of casting their ballot for Obama, an indication the party has yet to coalesce around the Illinois senator four weeks after the most prolonged and at times divisive primary race in modern American history came to a close.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Friday, the number of Clinton supporters who plan to defect to Republican Sen. John McCain’s camp is down from one month ago, but — in what could be an ominous sign for Obama as he seeks to unify the party — the number of them who say they plan to vote for Obama is also down, and a growing number say they may not vote at all.

In a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey completed in early June before the New York senator ended her White House bid, 60 percent of Clinton backers polled said they planned on voting for Obama. In the latest poll, that number has dropped to 54 percent.

In early June, 22 percent of Clinton supporters polled said they would not vote at all if Obama were the party’s nominee, now close to a third say they will stay home.

And, as Obama veers his candidacy toward the center of the political spectrum like his Iraq policy flip-flop, public financing change and FISA reversal, he faces a challenge from Ralph Nader on the far left.

Will this poling data force Obama to name Hillary as Vice President?

Or, is this the type of data that will reinforce a Hillary decision to stay off the ticket, let Obama lose and then run again after a four year John McCain term of office?

Probably the latter.

Watch the Clinton cabal push Howard Dean and Team Obama to allow her a speaking role at the Denver convention. Will Obama let her speak in the stadium?

Stay tuned……..
