When even the French are saying that maybe the time for talking is over....
France voiced skepticism on Wednesday that a planned revival of talks between six world powers and Iran would succeed, saying Tehran still did not seem sincerely willing to negotiate on the future of its contested nuclear program
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, however, raised doubt about what the talks could achieve. "I am a little skeptical ... I think Iran continues to be two-faced," Juppe told France's i-Tele television.
Well, wait, easy now. While the French are still terrified of fighting - "....we have to continue to be extremely firm on sanctions...which in my view are the best way to prevent a military option that would have unforeseeable consequences," at least they realize that talks are no more than a stalling tactic being used by Iran to further along their nuclear program.
Of course, maybe the French are actually listening to the mad mullahs - as opposed to our president, who appears to be sitting in international isolation, masturbating furiously to the sound of his own mellifluous voice:
Previous talks have foundered over Iran's refusal to discuss what it deems its "inalienable" right to develop nuclear energy, and recent Iranian comments have not diverged from that line.
"With God's help Iran's nuclear course should continue firmly and seriously. No obstacles can stop our nuclear work," clerical Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said...
"Sorry...I didn't quite catch that last part...I've got my fingers in my ears..."
