    What the US should do is destroy their nuclear facilities then have a talk like: "and don't ever try this again, got it?" Once those lunatics get a nuke, it will implode somewhere.

    Wow "The" Christine Pelosi. America needs to start talking to each others and work out our issues before we decide to do anything else. How can we talk to Iran when we're turning into a third world country ourselves?

    Why? Leave Iran alone. Let them do what they want to do. As lone as they are not attacking Americas borders leave them be. We should still keep an eye on them though.

    Actually no, they didn't. They want a regime change in Israel. If Iran really hated Jews like the west media says Iran would be slaughtering the thousands of Jews that live right there in Iran. They are not.
    If Israel has a problem with Iran then Israel can take care of it. If Iran is making a nuke and it bothers Israel then Israel can take care of it. Are you saying that Israel is nothing but a dinky little country with a weak defense force that can't take care of itself? Are you saying that they can only fight against Palestinians and would fail against a larger country like Iran?
    So Israel can take care of itself right?

    And you say Israel is an ally right?
    How many troops, aircraft, coastal patrol boats, tanks, APVs, bullets did our ally send into Afghanistan after 9/11? What kind of support did they send into Iraq?
    How many IDF personnel were in Vietnam, Korea, Panama, Granada, the first gulf war dessert storm?
    It doesn't look like our " ally " helps us out much.

    Welllll, we could sit down, drink a few cold ones, and lie to one another.

    Really, are you ready to trust Them?
    No, well good, cause they won't trust you either.
    So it kinda seems like a waste of time.

    especially with the idiots we have in higher office these days. imagine how much worse things can get with the gang that can't shoot straight. after the way Putin beat up on our weak inept president last week.. I would think he would want to refrain from another International ass kicking that he would certainly indure at the hands of the Iranians

    @bsking It's amazing that if the U.S. considers world opinion and applies statesmanship, the rowdies call that "weak." But if the U.S. charges right in without time for consideration, the rowdies call that "dictatorial."

    Tell me -- what action could the president have taken that would have met with your approval? Because I think we both know there was none -- you'll spin any of his actions to suit your agenda.

    @Zazziness whats he going to do tell the Iranians there's a red line somewhere that they better not cross? he's better off to just do the next three years sitting in his room being quiet

    @Zazziness Spin? His actions speak louder than any words. We would be better off if he went on tour with Tiger for the next three years.

    If Israel wants to engage in direct talks with Iran, I would support that. And I would even support the U.S. brokering such a meeting, but I think the United States puts too much at risk by sitting down with its enemies, especially given that the potential rewards are so murky. What would we gain from that exactly?

    We need to stay out of it completely. Let Iran be. If we don't like their policies do trade with them. Other then that... leave them alone. No talks, no war, no trade. Keep an eye on them and wait for them to act... if they ever do. If Israel has a problem with Iran or any other country let Israel take care of it.
    .
    As for the op-ed...it sucked. It has that 'feel bad for me because I'm a Jew, holocaust, and everybody wants to kill us, holocaust, we're the vicitims here' tone to it.

    Iran has only one reason to talk to us - stall attacks by the US and its allies. If we need to talk to someone that bad, how about Iranian political dissidents? They must be pretty forlorn these days.

    I have trouble with the idea that anyone could think that direct talks could be harmful. An exchange of ideas has to be helpful in solving problems between two nations. This is the best piece of political news I have read about in years. I fear this may be a joke.

    It all depends if Iran is up to signing on to a centralized bank in their country ran by foreigners operating a fiat currency system with no oversight or say in it from their gov't. They also have to promise to never switch their oil-trade off the petro-dollar and allow the UN to go anywhere they want and inspect anything they want whenever they want. That is the only way the US and Israel will be happy with Iran.

    Actually talking to Iran may have no positive effect whatsoever - but it costs nothing to talk and may lay a foundation for non-military resolution of the differences between us and Iran.

    Before anyone resurrects that hoary old "We Don't Negotiate With Terrorists" slogan - yeah, we do, we always have, e.g., Iran-Contra.

    This is a no-brainier. If we want peace with Iran we must engage civilly with them. President Rouhani has clearly signaled that this is a new day in Iran; that the bellicose language of their former president is in the past & they want to take a new path.

    Happy Anniversary. It has been 60 years since freedom and democrazy america overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran and installed that murderous thug the shah. Since then it has supplied the ingredients so their stooge Sadistic Hussein could use poison gas on the Iranians. And you wonder why the Iranians don't like you? This is a huge step forward for american foreign policy to get a positive response.
