Iran's response to the G-8: don't call us, we'll call you, infidel.

The G-8 meeting on June 29th was supposed to be a deadline for Iran to respond to the generous incentives package handed to them on a silver platter by the West. This was later amended to July 5th.

Iran's response:no answer until they're damn good and ready!

Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Iran had `questions about the proposal' and that they plan to discuss them with EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana next month before Iran can respond.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran is seriously and carefully reviewing the proposed package," he said. "Questions and ambiguities on the Iranian side are pending. Therefore, we welcome the discussions and negotiations for clarification of those ambiguities."

Mottaki said something a leetle bit different just yesterday in an interview with the German weekly magazine Stern, which quoted him as saying his country may respond before the Group of Eight summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, which starts July 15th.


The ministers from the US, Russia, Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Italy and Canada said they expected to hear "a clear and substantive Iranian response to these proposals" at a meeting on July 5 between Solana and Iran's chief negotiator Ali Larijani.

Considering the way the West continues accepting this nonsense from the mullahs, I wouldn't count on it.

At any event, supreme leader Khameini has already said thumbs down on the agreement.

And it's obvious that no matter what the Iranians `agree' to, they will continue working ontheir nuclear weapons program.

Look for more god cop/bad cop chess moves from the people who invented the game.
