"will emphasize respect for the Iranian people"

They should respect their elected leaders too, if they really are heading to some kind of development, progress in diplomacy or negotiations.

This double standard is bothering me daily, almost decade with USA foreign policy which often very badly coordinated - managed.

Hamas is just one example more. "We respect the people, but not those who are your elected leaders." ... So - another supported coup, placed puppet?

There are many levels in that pig picture. I do know that these puppets, called as presidents and our "elected" leaders are just one stage, and above them are the real agenda makers, another levels.

But these puppets do have their important missions - driving public opinion and making timings - also needed mistakes. They have their professions and desires, so it would be wrong to totally underestimate their powers - they do have some. They are spokesmans, so we have to listen them, and try to understand what they mean, not just what they say.

Its all about managing timelines and setting priorities. In governance there are lots of duties, which are gladly directed to public figures to handle, and most occasions also to fail in those... Chaos always makes better room for breaking agendas.

In the way to New World Order...

Iranian official answer,

Iran tells Obama: Don't repeat false U.S. charges

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran called on U.S. President-elect Barack Obama on Monday not to repeat what it said were false accusations leveled against the Islamic Republic by the outgoing administration in Washington.

The United States accuses Iran of seeking to develop nuclear weapons and President George W. Bush has spearheaded a drive to isolate Tehran internationally. Tehran denies the charge.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman also suggested Tehran would respond in an "appropriate and timely" way to any change in U.S. behavior toward the country, which is embroiled in a row with the West over its disputed nuclear plans.

"We have to see whether or not this change in orientation (by Obama) is in practice and whether it will bring about fundamental change in the behavior and stance of America in relation to Iran," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi told a news conference.

He said Obama should not "repeat past statements and instances whose falsehood has been demonstrated by Iran," a reference to U.S. accusations about Tehran's nuclear plans and other issues -- although he did not mention specific charges.

"This is a very important point and undoubtedly Iran will undertake an appropriate and timely measure proportionate with the new U.S. behavior and action," Qashqavi said.

"To change, you have to change - first!"

Obama's half hearted commitment to peace and justice is sickening. What about Israel's continuing anti-civilian campaigns ? What about Bush's war crimes right in front of your nose ? Oh, Iran is the problem, i understand...

"Iran is going to be one of our biggest challenges," Obama said in an interview with ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

Mr Obama ... I thought you said that Iran was 'tiny' and not a serious threat?

So what's the story?

- Obama told the truth PRIOR to election, that Iran isn't a threat. But now that he's in, he's telling lies.

- Obama was saying what he had to say to get elected, but he knew Iran was definately a threat.

- Obama didn't know what the heck he was talking about before getting elected and now that he's had a security briefing he finally knows Iran is a threat.

- Rahm Emanuel got to him.

Hillary promises 'Smart Power’

Hillary Clinton will Tuesday put diplomacy at the forefront of US foreign policy and stress "smart power" in her bid for confirmation as president-elect Barack Obama's secretary of state, aides said.

When she goes before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, an aide said, the New York senator will also promise a renewal of American leadership-perceived to have declined with US troops bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"She will reiterate that she and the president-elect believe that America must be smarter to be stronger," an official on the Obama transition team said on the condition of anonymity.
