NYT: Britain, France and Germany Announce Accord With Iran

See I don't know about the rest of you, but this just rubs me the wrong way.

How can we want to give rewards to countries for stopping Uranium enrichment. What we are saying is that, you will get money and goods for not becoming a terrorist nation. That doesn't mean they don't know how to make the bomb, just that it will take 2 months for the to produce 1 when we stop giving them 'rewards'. And unless they are very careful the information they do have could fall into terrorist hands anyways.

I know there are 20 other ways to look at this, but that is one way that I don't like. We need to either say, everyone gets the bomb and get our defenses up as soon as possible (which would be catastrophic anyways because nuclear weapons damage the whole worlds environment) or we say no-one gets it but us 'priveleged' people and fight a war on terrorism because everyone hates us for having the 'bomb' hanging over their heads. Or give them rewards as seen above for being good 'children'.

I'm suprised that this was even needed, considering the pasting we're giving their next door neighbor. I guess bomb or no bomb, they still hate our free society and fancy themselves as gods among men. I guess each situation is unique. As long as they behave, I'm not too worried about it. I just wish Germany wasn't in accord with France on anything...
