this is craziest story i have seen in the news in my life.

there are 2 possibilities:

1) this news is true, which means the administration was either lying all along until now or their intel was terribly wrong for the 2nd straight time

2) this story is false, which would mean they're lying now

further, if the story is true, all those warnings that iran will go "beyond the point of no return" within 6-12 months by the israelis was also either lies or bad intel (my guess is bad intel based on how they royally screwed up the hezbollah war).

personally i think this is bad intel, because why would the iranians suddenly stop a nuke program that they in fact started, with no apparent reason.

a nuclear armed world is the last thing we need, especiall in the middle east.

"a nuclear armed world is the last thing we need, especiall in the middle east." - lol.

Is Israel somewhere in North America? Or the west thinks it is in Europe? middle east is already armed. More than India-pakistan combined.

Now that Bush is sure Iran does not have a nuclear weapon he will seriously think about an attack. Its the norm, the weaker you are the more vulnerable you are.

For a particularly cogent analysis of this very issue see Juan Cole's analysis (http://www.juancole.com/2007/12/did-iranian-spy-clear-tehran-of-nuclear.html). In fact, if you are interested in a day-to-day relatively unbiased collation of news reports and analysis of the Middle East, there are very few sources more authoritative than Juan Cole's Informed Comment (http://www.juancole.com/).

yo doesnt Israel have nuclear weapons, i am sure that they have over hundred of them, by they dont claim or agree they have any, and in the Gulf Co-operation Council, they say they want a nuclear-weapon free Middle East, they have seriously have to look at Israel first!!!

i am little relieved with this news, the threat of an attack on iran has been reduced. When FOX aired "news" items like Iran a ticking time bomb... i was scared that US is preparig ground for a tactical strike on iran.
