No basis for dialogue with Iran

Even though Condoleezza Rice is still saying that we may have diplomatic talks with Iran, that avenue is closed. The UN security council demanded that Iran halt uranium enrichment, but Iran has made it abundantly clear that it will not relinquish its rights to enrich.

It appears therefore that all comments about a possible diplomatic solutions are merely deflections to make Iran believe that they will not be attacked.

How Ms. Rice can stand there and talk about diplomatic talks with Iran, whilst the administration of which she is a member refuses to engage in any talks, really shows the arrogance of her and the belief in her own lies.
They even refuse to engage in talks through the Swiss who represent Iran diplomatically (that situation alone is just so damned childish).

The only time they have issued calls for talks it has been with so many preconditions to be met first as to be deliberately doomed to failure, but gives the US admin the chance to blame the Iranians for not coming to the table.

I just poured over all the old news breifs on talks with Iran.

It appears Mrs. Rice is the only one in her administration who avidly voices the idea that the US should hold talks with Iran. Bush and the rest of them seem to flat out deny any such talks will ever occur, that is, unless Tehran dismantle its enrichment program.

Now here's the catch.
Mr. Ahmedinejad stated very clearly, that it wants to hold immediate talks with the US regarding the deteriorating situation in Iraq, so that they can work together on bringing the Iraqi region back to peace. However, he states that Tehran will not dismantle it's enrichment program just so they can start talks with a country.

Essentially, Iran knows that if they dismantle their Enrichment program just so they can talk to the US, this opens the floodgates for anything else the US can tell them to do, just so they can talk to them a second time.

Mr. Ahmedinejad also stated that the possibility of dismantling their enrichment program was absurd... however, he would do it on ONE occasion... if the United States dismantled theirs. lol. I'm starting to really like this guy. Good sense of humor.

Either way, it's clear that the Whitehouse hasn't made up it's mind on what it really wants with regards to Iran... however Iran does make it clear that they want to work together with the US to solve the problems in Iraq.

Mr. Bush will be doing the world a favor if he would just drop the Enrichment crap, and engage in talks with them. There's alot Iran can help with in Iraq... alot they want to help with. I say it's time for the US Administration to stop acting like a spoilt child and grow the **** up.
