ACCEPTING SURRENDER:

West should not miss chance to end atomic row: Iran (Reuters, 9/20/07)

Iran is testing Western intentions by working with the U.N. atomic watchdog to resolve a nuclear row but the opportunity for such cooperation may not be repeated, a senior Iranian official said on Thursday. [...]

"Iran has provided the agency and the West with a very important opportunity. If their intention is to cooperate and resolve the nuclear problem, Iran has expressed its readiness," Aghazadeh said, Fars reported.

"This is an exceptional opportunity and it is not clear if this will be provided (by Iran) again," he added, speaking to reporters on returning from Vienna, where the IAEA is based.

"This political decision (to cooperate with the IAEA) was taken by Iran to test the agency and the West and, definitely, our intention and decision and the country's political will is to resolve these issues. Iran will resolve them."


There's never been an opportunity with Iran we haven't missed.

As you've repeatedly pointed out, Oj. Give Iran a chance and they will back down. The reasonable men still have the power to do that.
