Iran Jerks Obama's Chain

Earlier this month Obama was pretty excited about Iran's agreement in principle to export the majority of its low-enriched uranium. This would supposedly slow down the mullahs ability to build a bomb (as if they would really ever do that).

Now it turns out 2+ weeks later, Iran is saying...No.

Behold the awesomeness of Stupid Power!

Iran signaled ahead of international talks Monday that it will not meet Western demands for a deal that would move most of its enriched uranium out of the country and delay its gaining the ability to make a nuclear bomb.

Tehran says it needs enriched uranium for nuclear fuel, but the West fears it could be used for weapons. The U.S. says Iran is now one to six years away from being able to make such arms, should it choose to.

Iran's state-run Press TV cited unnamed officials in Tehran as saying the Islamic Republic was looking to hold on to its low-enriched uranium and buying what it needed for the Tehran reactor abroad.

Such a stance would likely doom the talks, with neither the U.S. or France accepting such terms.

As for Obama's charm offensive (holiday greetings, showing respect to killers by referring to Iran as "The Islamic Republic" and such) is clearly paying dividends...for the Iranians.

Seems the mullahs are grateful to Mr. Peace Prize for new material to mock the US with.

"The Deputy Foreign Minister of the United States [sic] tried on three occasions during the meetings to meet Jalili, but Jalili did not accept..."

..."The Deputy Foreign Minister of the United States at this meeting also said that some discussions about lack of respect for human rights are being discussed. Jalili addressing this American authority says that we too have heard that Obama has said that you will end torture in the United States, after which the American authority looked down..."

Read the whole sad thing.

On the upside, it doesn't seem the US representative at the talks apologized for the US. It seems Obama likes to save that job for himself.
