It seems avoiding diplomacy with Iran at all costs is coming back to slap us in the face. And Bush is still adamently against opening dialogue with the country. Thoughts?

Iran isn't as dangerous as they wish they were. They can do more with oil than they ever would accomplish with nukes.

I don't really like to read things that have Rupert Murdock as an owner. Then again I do have a Myspace so dammit. I'll comment on this later... I'm too sleepy

Ahmadinejad has been recently marginalized in recent Iranian elections by opposition moderates and reformists who accuse him of not being cordial enough with the west. Obviously the Iranian people don't approve of the actions of Ahmadinejad and his government. Trust me his hardliner government is losing its grip, and fast.


His hardliner allies were hammered in the elections and most of them simply lost.

To feel like their penises were big enough to get into a pissing contest with several major world powers, same reason they'd wanna use nuclear weapons. Rolling Eyes
