You run as a threat to Israel in the entire world against this malicious intention reading world powers need to display determination and not weakness and -- should not make any concessions.
We need to put before it clear and -- -- critical demands.
It's liberals wouldn't do it.
Even new talks about Iran's nuclear program talks that the White House seemed to indicate it's.
Skeptical but slightly hopeful about.
For one thing actions and fulfillment of obligations -- -- We are very clear eyed about.
This is Iran says the UN watchdog the international agency can.
Some of the inspections of nuclear facilities back -- the panel Fred what about these talks and where things seem to be had.
This whole thing with the inspectors it's coming this really is deja view we've been through this so many times we know how when ends.
They promise all these freedom do -- to inspectors.
And then after awhile and it takes a while the schedule of things and then they go and they see a little bit and then after a wildly.
The Iranians said they'll block the inspectors.
And I think we'll probably see that again but.
If you -- is clearly are scared about this next set of sanctions that the US and European countries -- would apply the ones on oil exports which you go into effect in July.
-- into their economy's not in good shape then that would really hurt it.
And they don't want that to happen and so indeed you can see what they're waiting to hear their -- into a situation where.
The that the Russians and the Chinese and others will say well let's wait and see how these inspections go.
And let's see of them -- just let it and look I was not push so hard so quickly and I think that would be a terrible mistake.
Meantime -- the Israelis say this is all of delaying tactic you know and the real question is will them.
West do anything in these talks to impede Israel's.
Freedom to decide whatever it wants to do I mean Israel's position hasn't changed.
The talks can go on and it's still reserves -- right to strike in May be at play is planning one now that Benjamin Netanyahu has a stronger coalition behind him.
But I think the real question.
In the short term is if you don't -- -- have these talks what else do you want to do right now.
On and that's a question the White House asked to Romney today.
Of course then nobody should give -- to Iran and these talks or make concessions in the White House says -- -- And Netanyahu says that he doesn't want them to but what is the alternative right now the alternative is to strike Iran I guess -- hasn't said he would do anything specifically different than.
So you're just got -- -- -- to make sure that the oil.
When it -- export sanctions go into a fax to really apply.
A lot more pressure look on -- and we can't dismiss the idea that the Iranians wouldn't that actually -- at some point America.
With such as the pattern.
With Iran and with the way that the west reacts and then you three.
Is -- they cross red line after red line the -- -- have all been there is not on our side going from 3.5.
Enrichment to 20% now and we just sort of go woman want and they sort of graciously condescending give something back which they should have been doing all along such as the investigators coming and and we credited sort of some sort of milestone I think it.
People are invested in the process.
And they don't want an impasse that would lead to higher gas prices -- type of thing and I think it's gonna lead to maybe Iran.
Getting once again what it wants instead of what -- -- The US senate yesterday -- this non binding resolution saying that there could be an attack on nuclear facilities it's an option but not authorizing it.
The White House has said all this talk of loose talk the president said about war.
Doesn't help the situation he said that it drives of the price of oil which is exactly what Iran wants right now.
But I agree the sanction should be as tough as possible right now what -- daughter the toughest yet that they do need to do do that oil you on the sanctions as well.
And the toughen the sanctions are the more you can truly test the theory that that that Iran might voluntarily give us.
Is there -- Fisher here between Mitt Romney saying the administration is not tough enough and what this administration is doing politically isn't.
Yeah well and I mean there's certainly difference from what a challenger so I say when something like this happening is that what he would do you.
My rival well I -- -- differently that's the question of when -- that's hard to say what he do differently I think he would.
Support the sanctions going into effect and would say no more delays.
No more -- the great tomorrow Hillary -- look this rigmarole about the don't let the inspectors don't let that impede.
That sanctions going into effect.
And greater demands on the -- in some of the things he can do I mean.
And we look as a challenger what's he gonna say I'm gonna bomb of course.
Quite yet to suggest that he would do something tougher it without saying what it is that have been quite I don't -- -- he has decided.
With that as it for the battle but stay tuned to see -- geography.
