Carter warns against Iran conditions
BBC/ABC ^ | June 3, 2006

Posted on 06/03/2006 10:14:46 AM PDT by ncountylee

The former American president, Jimmy Carter, has said that the United States should begin talks with Iran without preconditions.

Mr Carter believes prerequisites could present the Iranian Government with too great an impediment to overcome.

His comments are significant, given that he was the president when US relations with Iran hit an all-time low.

He witnessed the Iranian revolution and the seizure of the American Embassy in Tehran in 1979.

He struggled for 444 days to release the US Embassy staff held hostage.

A failed rescue attempt led by the US military brought about the resignation of his secretary of state.

It was the crisis that has scarred relations between the two countries ever since.

But Mr Carter thinks attempts to improve relations should have started long ago.

And he believes that this administration's offer to sit down and talk on conditions that Iran gives up its uranium enrichment program may not be enough.

Instead of hiding his face in shame for helping to start this mess, Carter rushes to support another tyrannical nut case.

Oh, Please!! Jimmy Carter as an expert on how to deal with Iran? On the other hand, this could mean Ronald Reagan is about to make another appearance and solve Jimmy's problems..

And these are the exact reasons why we should take none of carter's advice on the issue....he is a feeble fool who let the above go unanswered!

I can't think of anything better that proves that Carter was the worst president, ever. His brain cells were mutated then and even more so now.

Carter should offer to go to Tehran and allow them to stone him in the soccer stadium. Maybe that would be ENOUGH?

Carter lost me with the Panama Canal giveaway. Carter has never cared about anything but getting cash for himself and his family. And I laugh every time I see that nutcase with his eyebrows flying up and down hammering for 10 minutes in front of the cameras on some house for some poor slob. Then after that getting in to a private jet and going back to his life of pampering. Carter and his family have had the best of the best. His concern for the poor or whatever is just a con.

We really ought to listen to Carter's "significant" comments.

His thoughts about negotiation have borne such great fruit in the past, like how well he managed his intervention in North Korea in 1992 or thereabouts to help rid the world of that threat. The way he helped prolong the Cold War by appeasing the Soviet Union before that was simply wonderful, too.

/sarcasm

When it comes to negotiation, the right thing to do is the opposite of anything Carter suggests.

It's non negotiable Jimmy. Iran must give up its uranium enrichment program.

Does anyone remember when Carter, candidate for POTUS, mentioned Admiral Elmo Zumwalt as a reference in discussing his qualifications for the job? Zumwalt responded shortly afterward that he didn't even remember a Jimmy Carter.

He witnessed it? He witnessed it?

Sheesh, his weakness was a MAJOR factor in the genesis of it.

He should just shut up about this. He is the least qualified person in the world to be giving advice about it.

It's the mean old USA's fault to begin with, ain't it Jimmy.

The only 'impediment' to eliminating Iran's nuclear program is whiny old pieces of camel dung like yourself that stand in the way of effective peace keeping:

They say even a broken clock is right twice a day.

That makes a broken clock far superior to Jimmy Carter.

In addition to cozying up to every brutal dictator he ever met, Jimmy holds the distinction of being the only ex-president to try to actively undermine US foreign policy.

Before GW1, he wrote the Saudis and asked them to kick us out before we could free Kuwait. He actively lobbied foreign governments before GW2 to try to stop us again.

He may be the only man who could make Clinton look good...
