What Goes On Around Iran

Ok, When they can't attack (is that right?) Iran They control the government economically. It's the best way and if they do it seriously they get anything in a short time. Iran has nothing but oil, every industrial power we had broke down because of stupid governmental management over the past two decades. If Americans can delay new deals with Iran, It's going to be tough. They have started it with Japan. "Japan is eyeing an oil deal with Iran that could strain ties with the United States, which is trying to isolate Tehran for allegedly sponsoring terrorism" I found in Star On Line. There is another thing about Iran's relations to India on It says: "The United States should be wary of the strengthening ties between the troublesome regime in Iran and India, a nuclear power whose government sometimes behaves in irresponsible fashion."
In middle of a two-day visit to Iran Jack Straw - Britain Foreign Minister - Declared that "he would urge Iranian President Mohammad Khatami later Monday to allow more intrusive inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities by the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency", he said "No one should ever compare Iran with Iraq in terms of their political systems or their danger", then he added "if Iran fails to do so, they will not be able to make progress on other issues" including a planned trade agreement between Iran and the European Union.
As far as I know Iran has resisted UK pressure to open up its nuclear sites to tougher inspections, saying it would expect "positive steps" in return. But Hassan Rohani, secretary-general of the Supreme National Security Council, told visiting British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw that Iran would invite ElBaradei for "talks to remove technical problems," the official IRNA news agency reported. "He has received the invitation and intends to respond positively," IAEA spokeswoman Melissa Fleming told Reuters.
After all these political activities it's good to see what "THE HAWKS" want: The United States must be willing to destroy a range of Iranian facilities to ensure the elimination of Iran's nuclear weapons program, A report by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy asserts.
