Iran's nuke issue heats up in U.S. election season


13:37, March 05, 2012

WASHINGTON, March 4 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to hold on to his diplomacy-first stance over Iran's disputed nuclear program when he is meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on Monday.

The president stated clearly on Sunday that he firmly believed that an opportunity still remains for his two-track approach, diplomacy and pressure, to succeed in stopping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

However, the Iranian issue is sure to heat up in an election season in the United States, as members of Congress and Republican presidential candidates joined chorus of clamoring for a hardening position on Iran, while Israel insisted on its right to launch a preemptive strike on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Our government goes to war because of election. Our government lost a war because of election. Don"t be friend with us, the U.S.A, because dog is our best friend. And only dog that would eat its own vomiting. Play good friends one minute but biting the next. There is hardly any long lasting friends.
