    “which the West suspects is a cover to develop atomic weapons but which Iran says is purely civilian.”

    While they KNOW (suspects and knowing are two different words and have different meanings) that Iran is far far away from developing a nuclear bomb. Same story, same trick with the WMD in Iraq while robbing us at home infront of our eyes. They need an excuse and chumps to fall for it.

    “Uruguay to propose Teheran rice for oil barter deal”

    Uruguay: Rice for Oil (out of the US dollar)
    India: Gold for Oil (out of the US dollar)
    China: Gold for Oil (out of the US dollar)
    South Korea: Gold for oil (out of the US dollar)
    Japan: uhh, what should I do..listen to the US or play the gold game.

    The so called West who are dependant on Iranian oil are shooting themself in their feet and fools in the US are losing the battle to keep the Dollar as the world reserve currency what will hurt them if they loose.

    Its a real shame that Uruguay has to stoop this low due to the Argentine import restrictions.

    I'm American and I do not support food or medicine embargoes against any nation. In any case, as long as the Iranian government does nothing openly aggressive, eventual world opinion of the American government I think will be negative.

    My real problem with Iran is because the country is run by a bunch of muslimist terrorists (the Mullahs) it is diificult not to take ANY nuclear activity lightly.

    Do not forget that as 'infidels' these rag-heads are mandated to kill us all, unless WE convert to Islam.

    The only nuclear activity should be by the west bombing the bastards back to the dark ages where they belong.

    I know that there are some level headed individuals in Iran but they need to make a choice: regime change for the betterNOW, or get out before the bombs fall.
