Oh but it is. This means the Iranians cut a deal on Iraq. It's good news! We'd never allow them to continue a weapons program, but giving them some rhetorical slack means there's been a deal cut. Sunnis in Iraq just shit their pants, if they haven't been doing that already after Shiites and Kurds agreed on a constitution that wasn't to their liking. Watch for more concessions from the Sunni's, and for the Jihadists to start hitting Sunni leadership, as they get more desperate.
Strategically we'd probably rather cozy up to the Persians than the Baathist Arabs over there. They are more cunning, less bloodthirsty, less savage, or so it seems. My gut tells me the US would like to normalize relations with Iran.
First its a Religion of Peace
