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.

Oh I believe this. /sarcasm of course

Ryder Truck will soon be backing up to WH, fumigators to follow

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.
