cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

germany and france reiterate iran ultimatum

Berlin - German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy called Monday for tougher sanctions against Iran, if the country fails enter talks on its nuclear programme ahead of a September deadline. 'We have supported (US) President Obama's outstretched hand to the Iranian leaders, but this hand cannot remain extended indefinitely to leaders who do not respond,' Sarkozy added. Speaking after talks in Berlin, Both leaders said discussions on further sanctions would take place in September, should Iran refuse to cooperate. Merkel said a broad range of sanctions would be applied, in areas including energy supply. Both leaders agreed that it was crucial for the international community to present a joint front. Many states in the West believe Iran is using its nuclear programme to develop weapons, a charge which Tehran denies.
