 Big Bluff?    [L]

AP: U.S. to Give Iran Nuclear Technology
n a major concession, the United States is prepared to provide Iran with some nuclear technology if it stops enriching uranium, diplomats said Tuesday.

The offer was part of a package of incentives presented to Tehran Tuesday by European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana, said the diplomats, who were familiar with the proposals. The diplomats demanded anonymity in exchange for discussing details of the offer, which was agreed on last week by six world powers in a bid to resolve the nuclear standoff with Iran.
Yup, I couldn't believe it either. The question is, do we really think appeasement works? I should hope not. Which is why this has got to be one of the ballsiest bluffs of all time. Let me explain.

Iran wants the nuclear bomb. Nuclear power is merely a convenient excuse for them to develop a Weapon of Mass Jewish Destruction. So, we offer to give them nuclear power technology, probably with a lot of strings attached. If they accept it, we'll probably have some sort of monetary gain, in terms of plans, construction, contracting, etc. - plus, a better standard of living for the Iran people (who I keep hearing are very pro-western). Maybe it could bring about a sea change in Iran?

On the other hand, if they refuse, and still continue on their thinly-veiled quest for nukes, then we've got every excuse to feed them a bunch of conventional weapons, pointy-end first.

Ballsy. At this point, I'd be pacing around the table.

I think it is one of two things. God is bringing us into this because we are stepping away from Him as a nation, and our destruction is eminant, or, Jack Bauer is on the case, meaning, your theory is pretty spot on, and we should rap this up in another 23 hours or so. Brent

Appeasement doesn't work. WWII ring any bells.

I just hope it all works out in the end.
