According to the New York Times this morning in an article by David E. Sanger entitled, "Iran Offers Plan, Dismissed by U.S.", the Iranians, do to "harsh economic sanctions" have proposed a "nine step plan" to end the crisis over its nuclear development.

The Iranian plan requires "many concessions" starting with the immediate cessation of all sanctions. The U.S. in the past has called this a non-starter and although the Obama administration hasn't responded directly to this latest Iranian offer, it's a safe bet it will be rejected.

It's all a "cat and mouse" game regarding Iran, its nuclear program and the U.S. inspired economic sanctions that can be best summed up by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's comments on Wednesday where she made it clear "the U.S. has no intentions of relaxing the sanctions". Well so much for this latest offer by Iran.

Then again, with the presidential election just one month away, the Obama administration is not about to alter the current stalemated "negotiations" with Iran in any way. And with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu all but conceding Israel isn't about to attack Iran without full U.S. agreement, an October surprise involving Iran is pretty much off the front burner for the time being.

But come November 7, with Obama still in command or a Mitt Romney victory having him waiting in the wings till January 20, it's almost assured the Iranian nuclear crisis will again become front and center.

This writer, and many others have written extensively about this U.S./Israeli inspired crisis over Iran's nuclear development and the disastrous consequences that would ensue with a U.S./ Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. [1] So there's no need to further elaborate on those consequences.
