Clinton steps up pressure on Iran for talks

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stepped up the pressure on Iran on Wednesday, reminding that country’s leaders that they have only a limited amount of time to accept the United states offer to begin face-to-face talks.

Iran has so far refused to discuss or scale back its nuclear capabilities. Many experts believe Iran is several years away from being able to build a bomb, but a German news magazine quotes intelligence sources as saying there is evidence Iran could have a nuclear bomb within six months.

Reginald Dale, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the U.S. position and the likelihood that Iran will respond to Clinton’s call.

So instead of allowing the Iranians to try Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (the Shahanshah) in their courts we instead gave them missiles?

This was after the US embassy was bombed in Lebanon and the money from the sales were given to the Contras in Nicaragua.


The US must admit that our anger and revenge for the (hostage taking)caused us to do harm to Iran. Iran must admit that its religious funies are way over the top when it come to being nuts.


Dr. Mohammad Mosaddeq, who was “man of the year” for Time magazine in 1951 for his democratic efforts in his country, was overthrown to be replaced by the Shah of Iran who killed and tortured thousands of his people.


according to, keyword “SAVAK”:

“The FAS [Federation of American Scientists] list of SAVAK torture methods included “electric shock, whipping, beating, inserting broken glass and pouring boiling water into the rectum, tying weights to the testicles, and the extraction of teeth and nails.” [19]”


When we start teaching our people about US/Iranian relations then maybe Iran will be more prone to listening.


According to this Bill Moyers’ special that aired on PBS America held the Shah in power for 26 years and sold him $18 billion in weapons.


There is much anti-Americanism in the world right now. If such a large portion of the world thinks disapprovingly of the US, then isn’t it imperative that we do our best to try and understand why there exists this anti-Americanism?


I feel sorry for Hillary Clinton; Obama did not even take here with him to Russia or the G8 meetings.

It is just like in Israel where the Foreign Minister Avigdor Leiberman does not serve his role instead Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres are the foreign ministers of Israel and so are the envoys of U.S. and not the Hillary Clinton are the foreign ministers of the United States.
