U.S. placed Iran nuclear issue on pressure track

The United States is placing its efforts to thwart the Iranian nuclear program on a "pressure track," head of U.S. Central Command general David Petraeus said in an interview to a U.S. network on Sunday.

Speaking to NBC's "Meet the Press," Petraeus said that he thought "that no one at the end of this time can say that the United States and the rest of the world have not given Iran every opportunity to resolve the issues diplomatically."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to US General David Petraeus: this statement is grade-A horse manure you're using to attempt to "sell" a war against Iran to the American people. You know it, and We the People, thank you very much, are not "buying"!!

The IAEA, the US and the UK made a proposal for enriching nuclear fuel for Iran, and the way it was engineered was to create a rejection of that proposal by the Iranian government.

Iran has made a counter-offer, to phase the shipment of nuclear material for enrichment, to which the US and the UK absolutely refused to respond in any logical or meaningful way.

An intelligent, rational response to Iran's counter-proposal would mean that the impasse could have been resolved through diplomacy, but that is not what Israel wants to have happen.

Israelis very keen on having our young men and women in uniform do the fighting, getting killed, or maimed for life (as happened in Iraq) to neutralize yet another of its alleged existential threats in the region.

Unfortunately, that includes almost every one of its neighbors in the Middle East.

And General Petraeus, one other little matter I might mention at this time. The Symington Amendment to the US Constitution stipulates that no aid of any kind can be given to any country with nuclear weapons which is not a signatory to the NNPT, and refuses to allow IAEA inspections.

As the world knows, based on the revelations of Mordechai Vannunu in the late 80s, and confirmed by former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and former US President Jimmy Carter, Israel has nuclear weapons, will not sign the NNPT, nor allow IAEA inspections of its nuclear facilities.

Why, sir is this country getting one penny of US military or financial aid in violation of US law?!?
