Misleading Title and content[edit]

The article title and content are misleading - in particular, the Houston Chronicle article stated Iran was "partially suspending cooperation" and that "It was not immediately clear what the suspension of cooperation would entail." -v 17:17, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I hope my edits addressed your concerns. I removed your tag. --SVTCobra 22:09, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Internal Links[edit]

If i click on the president of Iran I want to know him...who he is what he ahs done etc...not a news article about him especially if I don't know who he is. I do not like the internal links in this case...or most cases. DragonFire1024 09:31, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The solution there is to source a short biography from the Wikipedia article and put it on the linked to page alongside the wikipedia link. I'd prefer we use brief profiles on people pages rather than linking to wikipedia and hiding our content. We should give news content, and the encyclopedia should stay 2 clicks away from the article. One to our local cat, then a wikipedia link. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:35, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That would work for me. just so long as there is something that can direct them to learn about the person place or thing in general. DragonFire1024 09:39, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is water cooler stuff but I agree with Brianmc 100%. Wikinews is about news. If you want to look up on somebody go to WikiCommons, hmm I wondering if I present this properly. -Edbrown05 09:48, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ed and I agree... The world must be about to end. :-P --Brian McNeil / talk 09:59, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Some people may not know what commons is. I am speaking of a reader coming across the article and wanting to know more. Wikinews is about news we write the news...not the history of a leader etc. DragonFire1024 10:01, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As you'd see I went and added a {{wikipedia}} template to the page. What's there now is what I'd consider the minimum we should have, a sentence (preferably more) plus a link to Wikipedia. And now I'm off to edit the guy's page on Wikipedia to link back to us. :) --Brian McNeil / talk 10:05, 26 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Need more details[edit]

Now that Iranian officials have declared April 9th as national "nuclear achievement" day, are there any additional details that can be collected as a follow-up article? There are many aspects to this debate. Firstly, has the Atom Stroi company of Russia agreed yet to deliver nuclear fuel to the Bushehr plant? Is Bushehr really a civilian nuclear facility? Is Natanz really a civilian nuclear facility? Does Iran maintain still that its civilian nuclear facilities are exempt from UN sanctions?

US officials have uttered responses that are rather vague, but the US Navy action has been rather specific. With two aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, and two more on their way, the build-up of military readiness near Iran is astounding. The specifics and the logically-related topics would make a great series of articles, with timelines, quotes, etc.... Don't forget that the USS Nimitz left San Diego on April 2nd and will be in the Persian Gulf by April 12th. No one seems to be "connecting the dots" on the Iran issue.

Russia's stance, the Russian staff at Bushehr, discussions with the UN, and the US Navy build-up are all related. The US already has invested a great deal of effort in getting the Kurds a place to live. Many nations have a stake in limiting Iran's nuclear potential....why not fully explore all the facets of this issue?
