U.S. Officials Float Possibility of Opening Diplomatic Outpost in Iran


www.foxnews.com

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is considering setting up a diplomatic outpost in Iran in what would mark a dramatic official U.S. return to the country almost 30 years after the American embassy was overrun and the two nations severed relations.

And now this... I dont know what more to think about this situation, last week it lok like an attack was inevitable at least from Israel and now the U.S. wants to open an "interest section" in Iran.

Now I wonder if this would be in order to deter Israel from launching any sort of attack without at least notifying the U.S.... who knows.

I tend to see this more as an effort to create an impression in the public mind that the US is exausting all options to avert a war. In reality, war is the ultimate goal. In my opinion, this is just a smokescreen to obscure the real agenda.

Glad to see some see nothing but pessimism whenever anything discussed by Bush is announced.

Its always how he wants to bomb iran including numerous lies presented here about when the US was going to bomb them. Then when Bush does something that we all want him to do, like open some sort of neg. with Iran, the first thing we hear? It is just a ruse. Boy talk about not being able to win for losing.

It does not affect me one bit what people here in the U.S. or abroad thinks about our President, he has brought it on himself by dragging the name of this country to the dirt with his lies are greed driven war.

And that's fine, but it is funny to see how hypocritical people here are. They want one action, and when something happens along those lines, first thing you hear is them complaining.

Bush is a f-up no doubt about it. And he has done more to damage this country then any POTUS since Carter. yet he does this move which COULD turn in to the first step towards reopening diplomatic ties with Iran, and all we hear are complaints. So silly.

I'm not complaining. Most every thing I read on the subject points to the US as being desperate to attack Iran. Israel seems similarly desperate as well.

The occasional blip about US interest in pursuing diplomacy does little to counteract the massive amount of rhetoric pushing toward a war. I'm not complaining, I'm pointing out THEIR hypocracy.

Well in the hopes this situation could be resolved diplomatically I consider this to be a good step no doubt. Its just that I dont hold any more hope on this administration to do something smart, they have not done it for 7 and a half year why would they start now?

Well, its fair isnt it?

Its not like we actually tried to talk to Saddam, instead we just bombed.
Kinda strange when Saddam ASKED to talk.

Now Iran, who refuses to talk and instead says they can do as they please.

now the US is trying to talk and build outposts, when it KNOWS these offers will be refused by Iran, making them look like the badguy.

Its like some people just pretend to ignore reality.

Just read another article on this, not Fox, and it was quite clear this idea floated up from the ranks at State and Condi deemed it worthy of study. Not much more.

So, the msm is grasping at straws, basically, to find some good news about rationality and diplomacy in relation to our Iran policy. This is nothing more than a trial balloon by the long-neutered State Dept. to get some efficiency in visa processing and pamphlet handing-out on the ground in Iran. This has nothing to do with any change in Iran policy. This is basically about paper clips.

That said, Condi has been fighting against a strike and so this is another signal on her part that she's against an attack.
