Speaking with one irrational voice on Iran

VIENNA, Austria - The United States warned Iran it will not have much time to respond once it is offered an international package of rewards to encourage it to suspend uranium enrichment, suggesting that the window could soon close and be replaced by penalties.

"It really needs to be within weeks," U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told NBC's "Today" show,

While yesterday,
Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte told BBC Radio's Today programme Tehran could have a nuclear bomb ready between 2010 and 2015.....

"We don't have a clear-cut knowledge but the estimate we have made is some time between the beginning of the next decade and the middle of the next decade they might be in a position to have a nuclear weapon, which is a cause of great concern."


  • There is 'accident prone' then there is straight political insanity. It really is starting to look like the latter is setting in.
    There comes a point where, whatever choices are made, they are wrong.
    Seems like it has been reached.

  • Well, there are many who make the argument that was indirectly made about Cheney a two days ago in the NYTimes story,


    That the entire Iran situation is being set up to fail so that the claim can be made that "negotiations were tried."
