Poetic words. Meaningless. Actions. Stop yr nuc plan
2. just amazing double talk....:))
les ,   canada   (09.18.13)
if the west was a rubber band, after 10+ years of "flexible negotiations" should have snapped a long while ago. up until now, there were a lot of talk, and a lot more state of the art centrifuges went in to producing bomb grade nuke material. so lets be more "flexible", and watch the mushroom cloud over tel aviv.
3. Khamenei road map to Rohani: flexible tactics but..
Alan ,   Canada   (09.18.13)
...unchanged strategy. So Rohani will make some minor concession which compared to to the complete intransigence of his predecessor will appear to the West as a major progress by contrast. But the ability of Iran to become a dangerous nuclear power will not be impaired. What motivations are leading Khomenei, the real boss in Iran to resort to his new tactic in dealing with the "Great Satan"after such a long stand against any compromise? Maybe the cost of supporting Syria's Assad combined with the effect of some UN sanctions, are starting to become an expensive burden which needs a breather to rebalance the financial inflows & outflows. But as a dictatorship, the Iranian state cannot make a true reliable concession without risking to appear to the Iranian populace as a weak regime which could be overthrown by a revolt. The Ayatollahs may even let UN inspectors check some of the sites where explosive testing took place in the past. They forbid access to these sites for a long time, enough time to eradicate all traces of the gone activities, according to satellite pictures.
4. Sanctions ARE Working. Iran can't do anything....
Asher ,   NY ,USA   (09.18.13)
Sanctions are choking the Ayatollah and pressure he is feeling causing him to show flexibility otherwise next step will be so costly. Par-oh let the people GO when his first born was dead in front of his eyes Now Ayatollah feels the heat under his feet. He knows he Doesn't have that much choice left....It's NOT Flexibility It's the Force of Sanctions choking him.

7. The ways for Israel and the USA and any nation to be protect
Rivkah   (09.18.13)
ed from nuclear weapons is to do certain things Scriptures requires to protect a nation or a person or a family. Observe the Seventh Day Sabbath of the Lord from sunset the sixth day to sunset the seventh day by not buying or selling food or wares or working except for what is needful or to do good. Ban pork and other unclean foods and halal foods dedicated to the idol Allah who is a black moonstone in Mecca. Allah is not YHWH since Allah does not have a son but YHWH does. Circumcise the male babies and all males whatever age they are. Obey the Commandments of YHWH and confess it as sin when you fall short of that. Ban sodomy and same sex marriages. Do not have sex outside of wedlock and only with one's spouse. Provide for your own which includes the immediate family and the mother and father if they need assistance. Pay tithes to charity for YHWH's work. Observe the Holy Days of the Lord which are the Spring and Fall Feasts of the Jewish faith with a grafted on Gentile branch.
