Fmr. Iranian specialist: 'talks will not succeed'

Hope is fading fast for a swift resolution over iran's nuclear program. In Baghdad Wednesday, the second round of negotiations between Iran, the U.S. and five other western countries has unexpectedly spilled into another day and reports are that neither side is budging.

Here's what the U.S. and its allies want from Iran:

  • Give up any uranium they have that's already been enriched.
  • Dismantle a secret underground bunker in Fordo they use to create the material.
  • In exchange, they would ease sanctions that have severely damaged iran's economy.

Will this impasse lead to military action against Iran?

    What ridiculous and lazy reporting. Erin speaks as though she is the spokesperson for the Israeli foreign ministry.

    Hey Erin here's a few facts for you:
    Fact: there is no evidence that Iran has either now or in the past worked on a nuclear weapon
    Fact: Israel is the only country in the middle east that has developed nuclear weapons with the tacit help of the US in contravention of the NPT
    Fact: Uranium enriched to 20% is not weapons grade as you suggested.

    Please do some research and stop accepting he Israeli talking talking points as fact. Who as I kidding you're too lazy to found out the details for yourself.
