The obvious answer is an arms embargo for all nations, but the boys with toys will never go for this as they enjoy their war games too much.

said Monday that ending the arms embargo was an important part of the deal.

You can want it all you want, but you're not going to get it.

Well, Fizz, if it's not a bad idea to destroy Israel, can you get the U.N. to help with that?

...and they will get what they want. Obama will cave, as usual, and help Irans nuclear bomb program along.

You mean like when the US helped Israel set up their nuclear weapons program? Difference here is that Iran does not want and does not need nuclear weapons.

Ramzee: You mean like when the US helped Israel set up their nuclear weapons program?

Who told you that? Israeli nukes were built in partnership with France and kept hidden from the US.

The US partnership with Israel is something that's only been happening since the early 70s. Before that, it was all Europe.

Just to name one, Israel "stole" 93kg of weapons-grade uranium from the US in the 1960's (the Apollo Affair).

And it's interesting that you bring up France; today, they seem to be the most opposed to making a deal with Iran.

The US and Israel didn't not have a particularly good relationship in the 1960s. Friendly, but not allies. Israel even went as far as bombing a US facility in Egypt to get the US to take action in the Middle Eastern wars. The US still said, "No thanks." It always surprises me to hear Europeans talk about the US-Israeli relationship when problems like Israeli nukes were created by Europe.

Have you heard the story about the fake walls covering elevator doors?

The US and Israel didn't not have a particularly good relationship in the 1960s.

Maybe not openly, at least not while JFK was alive, but the Israelis did have many contacts that allowed them to smuggle weapons-grade uranium and nuclear technology. Declassified documents also show that they smuggled large quantities of conventional weapons left over from WWII.

The secret and not-so-secret contacts are much more prevalent today, that is why there are so many in the US (and other) government desperately trying to sabotage any deal with Iran, while completely ignoring Israel’s nuclear weapons.

interesting to bring up Israel when talking about Iran like that, it bellies what you really think. Of course Iran wants its arms embargo lifted when it can sell all of its oil, they have terrorists to equip in Israel and other parts of the world. The US will cave. They have not because if they do the other nations will probably pull out of the deal all together. Iran is most certainly seeking nuclear weapons and their religious leaders have given sermons about using nuclear weapons on Israel and how islam would benefit from it... they are saying exactly what they want and what they will do just like nazi germany did.....
