    In spite of Obama's retoric that he is determined to prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon-it is only fluff. There is no way, at this point, that anyone can intervene in Iran' quest for weapons grade uranium. without all-out military intervention. That is not going to happen-and so we are left with the world leaders to really explain exactly how they will prevent Iran from upgrading uranium. The whole thing is rather silly since the enrichment level they seek surpasses what is need in a conventional nuclear reactor and everyone has know that for years. that Iran's energy needs do not need nuclear power generation for a stable electricity grid in that country. It is hard to know where common sense has gone among Western leaders. If Iran wanted uranium grade for nuclear reactors it could be purchased from several sources.at relatively low cost. The extravagant operation of their own 1000s of centrifuges puts a lie to their goals. It seems stupidity has struck western diplomats utterances. I would like to hear a western diplomat who has said" we cannot permit Iran to have nulear weapons" stand up and tell the world exactly what they are going to do about it-aside from military intervention. Do not mention sanctions-they haven't worked and will not work. The country who has most to loose from a nuclear armed Iran, Israel, is going to be almost left alone to make some state decisions. If I lived almost next door to a country where the president has said that his country is going to eliminate my country-I would think about serious remedial and preventive measures-before it becomes nuclear. One cannot rely on so called diplomacy any longer-hasn't worked and will not work.
