Did President Obama's language on Iran signal a move toward force?

In a joint news conference with British prime minister David Cameron, President Obama spoke of a "shrinking window" of opportunity for Iran to negotiate a peaceful settlement over the country's nuclear program. Could that language signal a move toward tougher talk–and a move toward the use of force against Iran?

    I believe the answer to your question is yes. I think the Obama administration is talking tough to try and avoid something that is unavoidable. The Iranian government has done nothing but delayed outside intervention by appearing to want to discuss their program. A tactic that they have been successful with the naive west.

    I would caution the Obama administration to be careful with the continued deceit this country is very skillful at playing.

    Who is this Iran expert!!!Most of Iranian community in US has considered him as "paid agent of IRGA intelligent servcies". Please, stop inviting him. His brother is the biggest importer in Iran for IRGA...go figure this. Also, there would be no war and Iran will have Bomb, since it was sold to us by Nixon Adminstration when Isreal got theirs.
