Skip to comments.Iran suspends uranium enrichment
Posted on 11/03/2012 8:34:59 PM PDT by Abiotic
Iran has suspended the enrichment of uranium stockpiles to the 20% purity needed to bring it a short step from building a nuclear device, news services in the region have reported.
Mohammad Hossein Asfari, a member of parliament responsible for foreign policy and national security, was quoted as saying that the move was a "goodwill" gesture, aimed at softening Iran's position before a new round of scheduled talks with the United States after this week's presidential elections.
Asfari said he hoped sanctions would be lifted in return for Iran's actions, otherwise it would resume the programme, according to a website belonging to the Al Arabiya news channel. Talks aimed at halting Iran's enrichment programme have made little progress, leading to the west tightening sanctions and increasing the prospect of military action by Israel.
The Islamic republic's economy has plummeted in the grip of punitive economic measures and Tehran indicated earlier this month that it would be willing to negotiate. However, the offer to suspend enrichment required so many concessions that it was dismissed by the United States.

And if you believe that, I have beachfront property in North Dakota I’m willing to sell REAL cheap.....
So the say.
Oh I believe this. /sarcasm of course
Who believes this radical liar? He will say anything to keep his buddy in the White House.
Sure they have.
Ryder Truck will soon be backing up to WH, fumigators to follow
It`s almost here
An in-kind contribution to Obama.
A lie to support Obama.
AND they never lied to us before!!!! right?
Yeah, okay, right. I feel better already
These pathetic pukes. They realize after the election they’re more likely to get hit, too.
Even if it were true, a week or so later they’ll start right up again, saying the US was being difficult, unreasonable, blah blah blah. They are aiming for that goal, and nothing short of bombing will stop them.
Yeah, and we don’t even have a way of telling where the plants ARE, let alone what they are DOING.
Though the pro-Obama gesture is no surprise.
Too late, Axlerod...too late.
Even without achieving bomb fission, they could make a very dirty bomb.
Hey! North Korea did the same thing.
Then they tested a small A-bomb...
Wow....did the guardian pick this up via Facebook or twitter?
I will not be moved or suprised by ANY “news” I hear in the next 3 days.
> Mohammad Hossein Asfari... was quoted as saying that the move was a “goodwill” gesture...
Right, a goodwill gesture aimed at Mohammad Obama.
Quit enriching huh? Did they tell ya that? LOL

Ha ha. Obama promised him more flexibility after the election too.
Like button being pushed for that pic! LOL
However, on the flip side . . . maybe this is called self preservation
Maybe they believe Mittens wins the election and undoubtedly will support his buddy Bibi.
This being the case, Bibi will then unleash all the force upon their land with the full blessing of the White House.
Manchester Guardian lies again.
I believe them. They stopped enrichment at that particular facility and moved the operation elsewhere.
Or so we are being told. No one has physically confirmed this yet, so who the hell knows how true it is.
And with Obama and his admin.....it’s probably just talk, because they are desperate to try anything to get more votes.
Ain’t gonna work, IMO. The Economy is a BIGGER issue for most, than the Iran issue, I think.
Exactly, “news services in the region” . . . the Tehran Times or IRNA or one of those. Was Pravda credible to the Manchester Guardian during the Cold War too?
Man, the Iranians must be terrified that Romney will win to try to pull something like this days before the election.
Hopefully most Americans will be too intelligent not to see through this ruse.
Yes, but a very dirty bomb will not incinerate everybody in Tel Aviv, or Manhattan, or DC. And that’s party of the problem: Too many people truly don’t believe that is what they want, and it IS what they want.
Obama and Co. have already tried class warfare, their imaginary war on women, the race card, Big Bird martyrdom, Bain Capital, Romney’s tax returns, Hurricane Sandy, and the Tea Party blame game. Now theyre going to announce Obama has persuaded Iran to cease uranium enrichment so they can hold talks after the election; that is, if Mr. Hussein wins. Talk about a crock of crap! If Obama really cared and had that power, he would have done so years ago. Instead, he empowers radical Islamic regimes at the expense of our safety. I, for one, am tired of Obama insulting my intelligence with his endless array of propaganda! This man will do or say anything to win an election!
Dick Morris called this one a long time ago.
They ain't no video, so Iz ain't believing it doc.
Bet even Daffy Duck isn't this stupid!
Both kinds of bombs are useful for terrorism.
I knew you could.
Yeah, that’ll last until about 7:01 pm Tuesday.
There is only one thing that will ever stop the iranians from seeking to bring about a nuclear Armageddon.
Give them the radioactive fire they crave and teach their survivors to fear.
1. CORRECTION: Iran SAID they suspended uranium enrichment — WHO verified it?
2. FOR HOW LONG?! 3 days — until Obama gets reelected?
Wonder how much Obomba paid for THAT!??? So very transparent...I guess that’s what the ONE meant about “transparency”.....
