Rice says time for talking with Iran is over

By Sue Pleming WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Monday there was strong international consensus against Iran's nuclear plans and time had run out for talking to Tehran.

With Italy's foreign minister at her side, Rice said the next step must be to refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council. The United States believes Iran is building a nuclear bomb but Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful, energy purposes.

"The referral absolutely has to be made," Rice told reporters.

"Iran must know that there is a firm international consensus against the activities that Iran is currently engaged in. We would all like to solve this diplomatically and we are all committed to doing so but Iran must recognize the concerns of the international community and has not done so."

Iran on Sunday urged the European Union to return to negotiations with Tehran on its nuclear program, saying talks were the only way to defuse its nuclear standoff with the West.

Rice said the time for talking was over and European discussions had come to a "dead end" because of Iran's actions. "I don't see much room for further discussion in any format," said Rice.

Asked whether the United States, which has about 140,000 troops in Iraq, could afford to take military action against Iran, Rice said the focus was on diplomacy but reiterated that no options were off the table.

"We have committed to a diplomatic course," said Rice, adding: "The president takes no options off the table."

The United States and the European Union want the International Atomic Energy Agency, at an emergency board meeting on February 2, to refer Iran to the Security Council for pressure including possible sanctions.

This is the third article in three days the first was one that Israel warned Iran that it would attack. The second that same day was Vice President Dick Cheney commenting on what Israel had said in which Cheney stated that in and war the US would back Israel

The question is no longer if the US is going to attack Iran but when .  I will relate a few tidbits on a talk radio program a military expert spoke of the US congress voting down a program to build nuclear bunker busting bombs that would have had great penetration in the course of this he said the US had given Israel 500 conventional bunker busting bombs that they were now practicing with them

A Iranian man who I know that worked with me at pizza hut as a driver a few summers ago just got back from a trip to Iran visiting family and relatives. He told me that the people “hate” this new president he used the word “crazy” a half dozen times to describe what friends and relatives over there felt about him. This man I know was emotionally agitated, and clearly disgusted as he spoke. Anyway there were two crashes in Iran a few weeks ago one wiped out dozens of top reporters – and the second crash wiped out a bunch of their leading generals. – He told me that on that second flight the president of Iran was supposed to be on it, but at the last minute he did not go on the flight. He claimed this was an assassination attempt – which he implied was from elements within Iran. 

As I have stated elsewhere the president of Iran is a strong believer in the twelfth Imam and it is his earnest belief that he shall soon appear – and all of this in connection to his rhetoric on war and his building of nuclear weapons. -  What the president of Iran is not saying is that he is going to try to create a confrontation so that this prophet will appear.

In their writings he will appear when all of fundamental Islam is being persecuted  -- I read that as bushes war on terror is going to continue to succeed.  But that the 12th hidden Imam along with the devil when their own are to the wall will stand up and fight for them in the form of two men the antichrist and the false prophet

In Revelation it speak of a star falling out of heaven and opening a pit from which the false prophets and its demons were chained  -- in the book of Enoch we are told who is chained in their and its location  -- in revelation it tells us that that devil is not satan, but Abaddon and also called Apollyon the destroyer who later either makes himself in the form of the false prophet or possesses him. And that leaves satan to possess the antichrist himself.

I will suggest that the star falling out of the heavens with the key to the bottomless pit could be a nuclear missile.  A missile or series of missiles that, in the book of Revelation miss Israel, and strike in the desert in or near Gaza opening that pit.

The Mosque of this twelfth Imam is located in Iran and I will mention here that it has a very interesting feature in it a well in which his followers drop notes (they’re prayers) that they want him to receive – who would send note to the under-parts of the earth so their hidden prophet might hear?) 

And the president of Iran believes Iran’s overthrow or the threat of Iran’s being taken by non-Muslims will  of cause this hidden prophet – who we know as the from the book of revelation to appear. They have their own distinct prophecies and if you put them against the prophecies of the antichrist you can see how their writings and prophecies are all twisted.
