Diplomacy and Resistance

Iran is working with the IAEA and honestly offering reasonable alternatives in seeking a diplomatic settlement of the nuclear issue.
Ali Larijani, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, said Iran could give the West guarantees that its nuclear programme was peaceful if there were negotiations without pre-conditions.
Asked what Iran was seeking, Larijani replied "constructive dialogue that could ... address the concerns" both of Tehran and of the world powers.

Speaking in Vienna on Tuesday, he said: "Concerns about possible deviations of Iran's activities in the future" can be "settled at the negotiating table.
"We would give necessary guarantees that there will be no deviation ever towards nuclear weapons."

The neocon regime is demanding preconditions of total suspension and doing it's best to set up obstacles to undermine diplomacy and justify the use of force where none is required. The obvious reason is that an attack on Iran is on their agenda just as the invasion of Iraq was. Nothing will stop them short of removal from office.
