March 2nd is a day that some of us have been looking at with concern.
There might be a plot to try and start a war with Iran on March 2nd.
If there is, know that it is contrived and false, and that another war is unacceptable.
- The AP reports that during the last set of meetings the Israelis defiantly told the U.S. that if they attacked Iran, they would leave the U.S. in the dark. Here’s how Mike Rogers, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee put it:
- Rogers told CNN on Monday: “I got the sense that Israel is incredibly serious about a strike on their nuclear weapons program. It’s their calculus that the administration … is not serious about a real military consequence to Iran moving forward.
- “They believe they’re going to have to make a decision on their own, given the current posture of the United States,” he added.
- Now, Israel’s two top leaders head to Washington for separate sets of talks in the coming days. Bibi comes for his annual triumphal curtain call before the Aipac national conference. There he will certainly repeat his baleful predictions of what a world with Iranian nukes would be like. It could be his last speech in this country before an Israeli attack.
- "It's unprecedented outreach to Israel to make sure we are working together to develop the plan to deter Iran from developing a nuclear weapon," and to keep Iran from exporting terrorism, said Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee.
Iran Again Asks For Nuclear Talks With UN
February 28, 2012
With international tensions running high over its controversial nuclear program, Iran on Tuesday repeated assertions that it wants talks with the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency.
"We are optimistic," Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said, "that upcoming meetings between the high delegation of the [U.N.] and the Iranian [side] will be proceeding hopefully in the right direction."
Salehi's comments in Geneva come after the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency said last week it has "major differences" and "major concerns" with Iran over its nuclear program and possible weapons development.
U.N. inspectors said that a visit to Tehran, aimed at gaining greater access to key nuclear sites and scientists, ended in failure.
Iran, which claims to have peaceful nuclear ambitions, has made numerous statements indicating it is ready for international dialogue but has put conditions on possible talks.
Israel and Western powers accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under cover of a civilian energy program, a charge Tehran denies.
