Iranian economy will be strongly affected by US and allies sanctions on defiant Iran which is running amok to get nuclear WMDs. With the unprecedented reduction in oil prices around the world and the recent discovery of alternative energy sources in US, the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad is concern with the appreciable reduction in Iranian revenues from oil sales, while Iran expenses are skyrocketing. Iranian expenses on military munitions and support to Islamic terrorists organizations of Hezbollah, Hamas and Mehdi Army in Iraq are estimated to more than doubled this year after Ahmadinajad took power as president of Iran. Iran suffered severe financial and munitions loses after that Hezbollah which is Iranian proxy in Lebanon had major blowout which resulted in ruined houses, posts, and munitions after Israeli aircrafts attacks during the 34 days of war. Inside Iran, the harvest of pistachio that is Iranís major farmersí income is starting soon, and sanctions on Iran by US and allies may cause major damages to the Iranian farmers if the pistachio will not be exported. Pistachio brings about 700 million dollars every year which is important income to more than 11% of the Iranian population. Ahmadinajad keep his defiance towards US although time is running out before sanctions will be applied. Sanctions on Iranian economy and political relations will deteriorate the economic situation in Iran and increase the pressure inside Iran to replace the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad. Obviously Iran needs much more time and efforts to produce atomic bomb, and therefore Iran is trying to come with solution which is based on cooperation with France, trying to avoid the sanctions for the time being, at least until the pistachio will be shipped out of Iran to the worldwide markets.

Americans, Do Not Buy pistachios from Iran. Boycott the bastards.
You're funny. But this was the trap Bush was warned against but no, he didn't listen. Iran is an ancient civilization. They probably wrote and edited the book and diplomatic manipulation. They will get more time and help from the EU with PRC acting neutral.

Besides, they have already successfully test-detonated a nuclear warhead twice.

The OP hurt my eyes, paragraphs are your friends, use them wisely.

Iran is just stalling and dragging everyone around the negotiating table. It's a practice adopted by every nation state including the UK, USA, China, Russia, France yet no-one seems to be screaming out for wars against them. So long as other countries keep leaning on them inc China and Russia, they'll eventually do what they're told.

It's a sad law of nature that every state will do just about everything it can get away with, without getting caught or having sanctions brought against it. Iran is no different than anyone else in this respect. All countries share this sense of defiance in one way or another.

North Korea announced they were going to be carrying out nuclear tests today, yet people are still posting about how Iran "might" be "possibly" doing the same in a few years time. Seems like we should have been putting pressure on China for the last ten years instead.

Jerry,

Are you serious? Do you mean they are jerking us around? That doesn't seem fair.

Uranium occurs naturally within Iran's border. It makes sense for Iran to process its own uranium ore excavated from its own mines. With France monitoring the operations, this shouldn't be a problem.

This whole debate will seem very ridiculous one day since nuclear power is just a matter of physics.It's a bit like stopping people from buying copper and magnets in case they try to produce electricity, or matches and lighters for making fire for that matter.

Like Uncle Hugo said it's their own uranium. It's not like they had to try and buy it on the black market, hence why the rest of the world has to ask nicely for them to co-operate.

Please pursue this. I am a patriotic American who voted for G. Bush in 2000 when I thought he stood for smaller, more efficient governemnt. Something has gone terribly wrong, and I believe in listening and dialogue. Not bombing whether by plane or backpack - both are horrendous to mothers everywhere. Thank you.
