Following Friday's Vienna meeting, Iran's IAEA representative, Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh , commented as follows:
"blockquote>"We had about eight hours of intensive discussions in a constructive environment. We mostly tried to bridge the gaps (relating to) differences in the structure, approach, or modality for resolving the issues."
"We had".progress".but, of course, there are still some points that have to be worked out at a later stage. In the meantime, these are issues regarding allegations which".in many cases proved baseless and with political motivations."
Nackaerts was ordered to assure discussions went nowhere. Follow-up isn't planned. Before talks ended, Netanyahu claimed "additional proof that Iran is continuing accelerated progress towards achieving nuclear weapons and is totally ignoring international demands."
Netanyahu's an inveterate liar. He's also more bark than bite. Israel won't go it alone against Iran. Doing so would be suicidal. Key Israeli past and current military and government officials oppose war. They do so for good reason.
Bluster is part of a politician's portfolio. Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak take it to the extreme. Talk is one thing. Destructive policy quite another.
War very likely is planned. Expect it on Washington's timetable, not Israel's. When it comes, America will be the lead belligerent. Israel will ride shotgun. The entire region and beyond will be threatened. Catastrophic consequences may follow.
World peace never was more threatened. It hangs by a thread. Daily articles and commentaries don't feature an issue too grave to ignore. Instead, truth is maliciously inverted.
