 Bush Rejected Iran Peace Offer

 Iran offered to give up, just like Saddam. Spread the news. Iran offered to quit enriching uranium if Bush would promise not to attack.

Just a quick heads-up. Don't forget the history of this administration. Saddam offered to leave the country. Iran offered to seek peace. Bush prefers death and destruction.  Bush needs enemies in order to profit from their deaths. US control of Iran's resources doesn't mean contracts and honorable business deals, it means US ownership with a gun at your head.

 

Quoting Noam Chomsky:

In 2003, Iran offered negotiations on all outstanding issues, including nuclear policies and Israel-Palestine relations. Washington's response was to censure the Swiss diplomat who brought the offer. The following year, the EU and Iran reached an agreement that Iran would suspend enriching uranium; in return the EU would provide "firm guarantees on security issues" - code for US-Israeli threats to bomb Iran.

Apparently under US pressure, Europe did not live up to the bargain. Iran then resumed uranium enrichment. A genuine interest in preventing the development of nuclear weapons in Iran would lead Washington to implement the EU bargain, agree to meaningful negotiations and join with others to move toward integrating Iran into the international economic system.
