Cannes, France - President Barack Obama says Iran’s nuclear program continues to pose a threat, and that he and the president of France want the international community to keep pressuring Iran to come clean about its intentions.

Obama commented Thursday as the International Atomic Energy Agency was preparing to soon reveal intelligence on Iran’s alleged nuclear arms experiments.

Iran has consistently denied that it is trying to build nuclear weapons. It insists its program is for peaceful purposes.

The U.S., Britain and France want the IAEA to share what it knows. Russia and China are pressing for the report to be delayed or scrapped entirely.

Obama mentioned Iran as he spoke in Cannes, France, after meeting one-on-one with French President Nicolas Sarkozy (sar-koh-ZEE’) on the sidelines of a global economic summit.

All this nauseating talk is enough. If war is what Obama and the Zionists want, then let them get it over with once and for all, and see how they like the results, I.e. Tel Aviv bombed out, Saudi oil installations destroyed and gasoline at $15 a gallon with a total depression of the economy and 30% unemployment. Does Obama think he'll do well by imitating Bush one year before his reelection under this scenario?! And where will the Zionists find themselves??!

Wow! So I guess your preferred scenario is to allow Iran to dangle a nuclear weapon over the heads of millions of Jews living in Israel. Do you honestly think for one second that Israel wants to attack Iran? They and the rest of the civilized world know that Iran is fully capable of doing much harm and realize that there's going to be a heavy price to pay. Unfortunately, Iran having a nuclear weapon is a much greater risk. Israel knows this, the U.S. knows this, Europe knows this. Even Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Arab world knows this and some are even openly saying it. Everyone wants to avoid a military conflict if possible. But if sanctions don't work, and diplomacy doesn't work, and Iran insists on continuing to move ahead with it's nuclear weapons program.... Iran can not be allowed to have even one single nuclear weapon.
