Nuclear arms ‘have no place in Iran’s security’:
Is this too good to be true or what?
How can the philosophies of a country change so drastically within a few months with the “changing of the guard”.
It was only a few month ago that the crack-pot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was at the helm in Iran selling “wolf tickets” to everyone that would listen to him. Now the new president of Iran Hassan Rouhani has an entirely different slant on Iran’s future and its policies; MAYBE.
United Nations (CNN) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that nuclear weapons have no place in his country’s security.
“Nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction have no place in Iran’s security and defense doctrine, and contradict our fundamental religious and ethical convictions,” he said at the U.N. General Assembly.
Rouhani said that his country is prepared for immediate nuclear talks that are “time-bound and result-oriented “. Iran seeks to resolve problems, not to create them,” Rouhani said, pushing for the “rejection of violence and extremism.” He also stated that his country is prepared for immediate talks “to build mutual confidence and removal of mutual uncertainties.”
President Rouhani should try and spread the word of peace to the rest of his Muslim brothers that have this world in such a turmoil. There is no reason why civilized people can not settle their differences with conversations instead of bullets and bombs.
But as a word of caution; as the old sayings go, ”if it seems too good to be true it usually is”, secondly “beware of Iranians (maybe it was Greeks) bearing gifts” , “keep your enemies close and your friends closer” and keep your eye on the hog and your finger on the trigger”! Proceed with extreme caution.
One more saying; “be-careful of who you let in the front gate. ”
