Mohammed Ali Jafari: Push for compromise over nuclear issue

Senior figures inside Iran's regime have "succumbed" to the pressure

Daily Telegraph: The latest whispers from within the regime suggest that the West's "twin-track" strategy of tightening sanctions and offering talks could yet succeed in breaking the impasse over Iran's nuclear ambitions.

One senior member of the hierarchy and two outside supporters have acknowledged that some within the power structure want to ease tensions. All three personally favour resisting the pressure, but their comments - as reported in the Iranian media - lift the veil on an internal debate over whether to settle the nuclear issue.

General Mohammed Ali Jafari, the commander of the Revolutionary Guard Corps and a pillar of the regime, has been most explicit. He is reported as saying: "Some have succumbed to pressures in the all-out economic war imposed on the Islamic Republic by its enemies and are suggesting a different course of action." >>>

Sepah is in a lot of hurt and is trying to muddy the water to catch a fish.

The news this week of Swiss and Russian Foreign Ministers' objections to additional sanctions and the rumors of one-on-one meeting with the US and Velayati's visit are all a part of an orchestrated effort to create confusion in the west and break the resolve of the western governments.

The only negotiation with the Regime will be over the terms of their surrender, on the deck of USS Golshifteh in the Strait of Hormuz!

No, It'll be a "capitulation", not a "compromise"...

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

There had not been a shred of doubt in my mind at least, that the Islamist Mafia of  "1000 family" -led currently by ali Khamenei- who have for the past 34 years  been busy plundring Iran's natural wealth, torturing, raping and murdering any Iranian who dared to stand up against them, would abandon their claims of "undeniable right" to Nuclear energy (read nuclear bombs...), in face of either an imminent military attack or popular  uprising caused by the terrible economic situation. But in either case, it'll not be a "compromise". It'll be a  humiliating capitulation.
