US to Supply Iran Nuke Technology

Sphere: Related Content

I'm a firm believer in the idea that you don't negotiate with terrorists or blackmailers. Iran is both. We've struck an agreement with the "help" of some European nations to provide Iran with some non-weapon nuke technology:

A package of incentives presented Tuesday to Iran includes a provision for the United States to supply Tehran with some nuclear technology if it stops enriching uranium _ a major concession by Washington, diplomats said.

The offer was part of a series of rewards offered to Tehran by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, according to the diplomats, who were familiar with the proposals and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were disclosing confidential details of the offer.

The package was agreed on last week by the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia _ the five veto-wielding members of the U.N. Security Council, plus Germany, in a bid to resolve the nuclear standoff with Iran.

I can't help feeling this is akin to the deal we made with North Korea during the Clinton administration.

What a damn shame that Bush is in the position that we are negotiating with--and giving concessions to--a nation that is supplying the insurgency in Iraq and may well be responsible for many American deaths.

We can't even blame it on Jimmy Carter.
