PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (CNN) - Iran's newly unveiled uranium enrichment facility "is inconsistent with a peaceful (nuclear) program," President Barack Obama said Friday.

"Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow," Obama said.

He called on Iran to "take concrete steps" to demonstrate it will comply with its international obligations to ensure its nuclear program is for civilian use and not a covert weapons program.

    Really? Are you serious? OMG! I can't believe it.....I can't believe it..... What a pathetic president. I guess all the past presidents and people in Congress were all lying when they were saying that Iran was not cooperating. This man makes me sick!

    Good thing it is Obama saying it; if Bush said it and no one believed him we might have a "Boy Who Cried Wolf" scenario.

    Finally a President who approaches this problem by the rules instead of pounding his fist!

    Neo Cons are going to have a lot of egg on their faces when Obama diffuses the Iran situation!

    How did Iran do this?

    umm, maybe because for the last 8 years we refused to have any type of talks with them.

    Nice job George & Dick...please stop claiming you guys made the world safer...you had no idea what was going on in Iran.

  5. Bedtime for Obonzo

    "And if you do not, we will be very angry with you! And then we will send you a letter that says we are very angry with you."

    To bad this country has abdicated leadership. It's up to you, now, Israel.
