Ahmadinejad and Obama unclench fist! What's it worth?

Ahmadinejad tells crowd at Freedom square ready for dialogue with Obama!

Iranian Overture Might Complicate Relations With Israel

Mob attacks moderate Khatami

Moderate Mohammud Khatami attacked by stick wielding crowd on the 30th Anniversary of the Iranian Revolution. That is not promising nor is the fact that President Obama still insists on no nuclear abilities for Iran! Ahmadinejad said he is ready for talks only if Obama's changes were dramatic. Well after 30 years talking is a dramatic change. That is a start but it could also be an end. This is a golden opportunity that I am afraid will be squandered as we already know neither side will change the policies that created this environment!

Ahmadinejad said we will face a much worse threat than Bush if we continue his policies and that in itself concerns me knowing Obama wants the same thing but thinks ha can get it by talking instead of threatening. Forget it! We will not see a repeat of the dark era of Bush but we will see a Diplomatic kinder gentler version of George Bush's policies at least in the middle east so as a result I can not possibly see anything changing there.
Engagement With Iran? Here Are Some Likely Scenarios

In America I believe Nothing is going to turn this mess around that all parties are threatening us with and they are all responsible for. This is just beginning like it or not and this is the future McCain wants to preserve for our kids! Our sorry Government better learn and quick to put their selfish interest aside or the right thing will never get done for average Americans and our America. We are rapidly running out of time!

However I do think relations with Russia will improve! Here Republicans have shown they will not acclimate but will fight as usual hoping Obama will fail. The rest of the world including Russia sees the importance of dialogue and getting off this road to world chaos and destruction Bush put us on if we as a world are to have a future! The world is watching!

You would think it's a no-brainer. War with Iran would be the final act of our own self-destruction. (Although we're well on our way as it is.)

The only logical and sane choice is to establish diplomacy.

No matter what's being said war is the first choice for many. We must talk to these people.

an average patriot said...

I agree but with both sides thinking they can talk but still get their way you know nothing has changed!
Obama still insists on a non nuclear Iran and Iran insists we recognize their right to have him.Nothing has changed, kinder and gentler belligerence that's all!

I agree! War would be in no ones interest especially the planets and all sides seem to push for war. I just don't get it?

Two words, Jim, 'arrogance' and 'greed'.

I know Brother! It really sickens me that we are not even a consideration beyond a nuisance and people just do not get it. We are so screwed!
