Obama And Netanyahu Meet to Discuss Iran

President Obama and PM Netanyahu

President Obama and PM Netanyahu met today to discuss the nuclear situation in Iran.  Obama maintained his position that a diplomatic solution is possible, thus affirming the American believe that economic pressure will result in a peaceful resolution.

For his part, Netanyahu did not gave no indication as to his preference for a peaceful solution.  He maintained that Israel has a right to make its own decisions as a sovereign nation, with some experts suggesting this is a signal that the U.S. would not block or protest Israeli military action.

The question in the back of my mind continues to be:  when?  Israel is certainly going to strike soon.  The question is how, to what extent, and perhaps most importantly, how will Tehran react?

BBC footage of the meeting is located in this article. Can’t find a way to embed the video, though…
