Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei rejects U.S. offer of talks




Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected Thursday a U.S. offer to negotiate one-on-one on Tehran’s disputed nuclear program so long as Washington continues to impose sanctions on Iran.

“You (Americans) want to negotiate when you are pointing the gun at Iran. The Iranian nation will not be intimidated by such actions,” Khamenei told air force commanders, according to excerpts of his speech posted on his website.

“Some rejoice at the offer of negotiations ... (but) negotiations will not solve anything,” he said.

Is anyone surprised by this?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

In his country they see it as fair. Thats fine by me, its when they want their "fair religion" in other countries to be accepted that when the problems starts.
Suppose thats the case throughout history with most religions.

Well, i suppose if they did meet face to face, they might have to reveal that the Dominant 313 is, so far at least, a plastic mock-up, and that their space (& potentially Missile) program is also, so far at least, a fraud. I suppose they're trying to maintain the bluff. Which, of coruse, was the mistake that Saddam made, but, as with everyone, Rulers and Leaders never seem to learn, do they.

I like how this, too, manages to be Obama's fault. How do you manage to work that out exactly? He hasn't bullied Iran enough, like George W. did with Iraq?

Iran rejects the talks because they know they cannot/will not stop enrichment of uranium.  With Oby's reelection they don't even have to play a game for time - they have all they need unless Bibi actually decides to give it a go unilaterally.

I'm not sure how the poster came to this uninformed opinion either. Obama knew Iran would refuse. This makes America look like they have the moral high ground on the matter, while making Iran look like they are unwilling to negotiate in any way.  

It is a win for Obama from a political standpoint. Not sure how he think there is egg on America's face. It seems to me that this is more of the idiocy that comes with being either 'left' or 'right'. It blinds people.

Bibi will start an arms race he can't afford to win.   China and Russia have got Iran's back and the Israeli military is impotent.  Let's stop pretending.   How many more times are we going to kick the dead horse?   How big of an idiot do you want the US to become in the world to even float the idea of invading Iran now, and once again doing Israel's dirty work for it?

HUH?  How in the world did you get any of those ideas from my post?  Yam the US ISN'T going to invade Iran - I never said they would.  IF a war comes to pass it will be more of a prolonged low intensity variety on Iran's part.  Deadly, but not catastrophic.  Israel is about to be watching an arms race regardless what they do.

OH REALLY NOW.  I was under the assumption that you thought Iran nuking Israel was a real possibility.   My bad.  I shouldn't have read those hundreds of your posts.

Perhaps you'd care to repost ONE where I specifically said I think Iran is going to nuke Israel?  I might have alluded to it as a possibility at some point but it hardly has been a theme with me so prove that one Yam.  I have consistently said that the danger of an Iranian bomb is from proliferation and causing it's proxies to overstep, thus leading to regional war.
