What should it be, Iran?

Iran is playing a dirty trick on the rest of the world by the use of rhetoric and coercion, almost at the same time, to force its way through a diabolical situation it is grappling with.

First, it is the touting by the country's political leader, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, of Iran's scientific achievements in recent weeks, that must give Iranians a very good reason to celebrate.

He has been present, when the first "domestically" made nuclear fuel rod was inserted into a research reactor. Also, the Natanz nuclear facility could boast of more Iranian centrifuges being brought into operation there; and that called for a celebration.

Meaning, the country's nuclear program was in full swing, even though the five members of the United Nations Security Council, comprising of the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, France and China, and also Germany "are demanding that Iran freeze all uranium enrichment." (ABC news, 02/16/12).

Secondly, Iran, is asking for a dialogue with world powers, through a letter from Saeed Jalili, the country's chief nuclear negotiator to the European Union's foreign policy administrator, Catherine Ashton.

"We voice our readiness for dialogue on a spectrum of various issues which can provide ground for constructive and forward looking cooperation," Jalili is supposed to have said. (ABC news, 02/16/12).

So, which is which? A defiance or cooperation, nobody can decipher; indicating that Iran is up to no good, as the letter is only designed to beguile the U.S. and its European friends to loosen the strict economic sanctions that Iran is presently undergoing; while it pursues its nuclear ambition.

Ahmadinejad is looking for a way out; but one that will enable him to twist world leaders around his little finger. Therefore, for whatever reason, the U.S. and its allies, must never acquiesce or give in, however slightly, to the renegade regime in Tehran demands, because its leaders reject lawful or conventional behavior.

The U.S. has offered Iran the technology of nuclear power for peaceful purposes, but Iran has declined it (offer) on so many occasions. The U.S. being kind and understanding still has it on the table; and it is only for Iran's leaders to show acceptance.

Iran's erratic behavior in the Persian Gulf has endangered the shipping routes there, causing the price of oil to skyrocket.

In an election year, Americans will not appreciate Iran's conduct, as the resultant will drastically affect gas prices in the U.S. In view of that, Iran must eschew its nuclear goal, not only for Americans, but for the peace of all people in all nations around the world.
