Iranian candidate: Current nuke talks 'fruitless'

Yahoo News, from the AP feed:


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A former commander in Iran's Revolutionary Guard now running for president says current nuclear talks between Tehran and world powers are at a hopeless deadlock.

Mohsen Rezaei vowed at a news conference Tuesday to change the dialogue's course, calling the present effort "fruitless" because of tightening international sanctions.

Iran's nuclear program is a central issue in the June 14 election to pick a successor for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. All eight hopefuls — who include Iran's top nuclear negotiator — back Tehran's nuclear program, but differ on strategies for talks with the five permanent U.N. Security Council plus Germany.

The comments by Rezaei reflect some of the most hard-line positions. But he gave no details on his proposals.

The West fears Iran is seeking weapon technology — a charge Iran denies.

Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.
