IAEA: Iran 3-8 years from atomic weapons

"The head of the U.N. nuclear agency said Thursday he agreed with CIA estimates that Iran was three to eight years from being able to make nuclear weapons and he urged the U.S. and other powers to pursue talks with the Islamic country.

The best way to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear arms is "through a comprehensive dialogue," International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei told a news conference in Luxembourg. "One way to do that, rather than to continue the rhetoric, is to ... sit down together."

Like what, for example, sending them angry letters á la "Team America" style?

Unfortunately, I don´t think those governments who support terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah who behead people instead of putting panties over them, are good faith governments who one can sit and have a civilized chat.

I only hope that the life of bystanders and fine soldiers like Army Pfc. Joseph Anzack are not gonna get lost in vain like so many who died in other wars, like Vietnam, a war America could have won if they had reassessed their strategies.
