"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Iran's Economic Bribe

FoxNews is reporting Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said Wednesday Tehran was willing to offer strong economic incentives to the European Union in return recognition of Iran's right to enrich uranium. xxx "We are prepared to offer economic incentives to Europe in return for recognizing our right (to enrich uranium)," Hamid Reza Asefi was quoted by state-run radio as saying.
xxx "Iran's 70-million population market is a good incentive for Europe," the radio quoted Asefi as saying. xxx European countries now have access to the Iranian market, but Tehran has in recent years turned more frequently to Russian and China for trade deals. xxx The comments followed Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad disdainful rejection of European plans to offer incentives to his country to give up its uranium enrichment program, saying it would be like trading gold for chocolate.
But in a nationally televised speech before thousands of people in central Iran, [Iran's President] Ahmadinejad cast scorn on the proposal. xxx "Do you think you are dealing with a 4-year-old child to whom you can give some walnuts and chocolates and get gold from him?" he said. xxx Senior diplomats and EU government officials said Tuesday that the tentative plans were being discussed among France, Britain and Germany as part of a possible package to be presented to representatives of the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany at a meeting in London.
With all the rhetoric coming out of Iran it's difficult to tell who is running the Iranian insane asylum.
