TEHRAN, Iran — Iran said Saturday that a package of incentives offered by six countries was "out of the question" because it includes a demand for the country to suspend uranium-enrichment activities.

The European Union foreign-policy chief, Javier Solana, presented the proposal to Iranian authorities Saturday on behalf of the U.S., China, France, Germany, Britain and Russia. He told reporters in Tehran, the Iranian capital, that the offer was "generous and comprehensive and a starting point for real negotiations" on the country's nuclear program.

But Iranian officials said even before the offer was formally made that they would not consider any proposal that included halting the country's uranium enrichment as a condition to talks.

"How the west feel if Iran offered Oil and Gas in exchange for the west to abandon its nuclear weapon.

First, Iran already "offers" its oil to the west, and has been doing it since the early 40's. In return it Gets a handsome price of a $140 a BB, thank you very much.

Second: Through its fundamentalist view of the world, together with continued action to destabilize the ME region to advance its own backward and fundamentalist dogma on the rest of the region. Threaten to wipe another country a 1000 miles away from its borders, A country which it had done nothing to harm Iran's interest. Furthermore, when the same backward region does all these on a primitive religious ground (the return of some illusive Mahdi). You do not, and should not allow such group to play with matches.
Since 1979 revolution, these barbaric Mullahs had demonstrated their utter disregard to human lives - even their own people.

Once these idiots are replaced by a democratic and secular government, where they can be trusted by the rest of the international community - then, Iran will have the type of nuclear technology it purports to have for peaceful purposes.

Iran offers a package of incentives (oil and natural gas) to the west demanding them to abandon their nuclear bombs?


Playing with fire

I don't think the west's action to remove this brainless regime will be as much to "stop Iran's nuclear activities", as a harsh response to this akh-magh-e-nedjat continued taunting Bush, and challenge the rest of the western countries to dare attack Iran.

Like the saying goes, every wise man knows his own limitations. And this regime should learn that lesson. The sooner the better for them. No matter what this little man in Tehran thinks, US is still the most powerful nation on earth. The west can do a lot of damage to this idiotic and backward regime.
