EU may allow Iran to enrich uranium
Iran and the European Union inched toward a compromise Friday that diplomats said would allow Tehran to run a scaled-down version of a uranium enrichment program with potential for misuse to develop atomic weapons.

The development was significant because the Europeans and the United States have for years opposed allowing Iran any kind of enrichment capability - a stance that Russia, China and other influential nations have embraced in recent months.

The compromise would serve Iran, the European Union and Russia by allowing all of them to say they had achieved their main goals.

The Europeans, who since 2004 have negotiated for Iran to scrap enrichment, could tolerate small-scale enrichment if Iran first agrees to their key demand - a freeze to re-establish confidence. If Washington accepts the plan, it essentially leaves Iran in a position to develop technology that it could use to make fissile uranium for warheads.

1. Iran should agree to nothing.
If Iran agrees to ANY policy other than the same rights enjoyed by, say, the US under the relevant international treaties, it is simply courting disaster. A sign of weakness in the face of war threats will only invite further escalation by imperialism.
