Ahmadinejad said he will soon send a message to the American people in an apparent attempt to influence the U.S. public opinion over President George W. Bush's policy toward Iran. "We will issue a message to the American people ... many Americans have asked me to talk to them and offer my opinions to them. This message is being drawn up," he said. In August, Ahmadinejad called for a televised debate with Bush months after he wrote a letter to the U.S. president that Washington said was irrelevant and not addressing the key issue of Iran's disputed nuclear program. Iran also recently has said it would consider negotiating with the U.S. over Iraq and other regional issues if Washington proposes having talks. But has hinted that it would not drop its refusal to talk about its nuclear program.

Because Russia already had a big nuclear arsenal, and we knew that they were rational enough to be deterred by the doctrine of Musual Assured Destruction.
Neither of those things is true about Iran.
It's stage II of the Ettiquette of Jihad. The first stage was the letter sent to Bush. He will likely list islamic grievences by the U.S., ask the U.S. to apologice and ask the U.S. population to convert to islam. If these conditions are not met, then a holy war is officially sanctioned.
Nixon's debate with Kruschev didn't mean squat. Even so, Kruschev was considerably more sane than Amaddogonjihad.
With all due respect I think it DOES hurt us that we will not talk directly with North Korea and Iran.
We ARE talking directly with North Korea and Iran, and frankly, talks are about as useful as teats on a bull. North Korea's problem is it just doesn't want to talk directly its neighbors, while the US position is we'll talk if the people most concerned get the oppotunity as well. But talk gets us nowhere.
We'd be better of just interdicting their ships without wasting our breath on them- that is what we'd have to do if they were happily talking anyway. North Korea is isolated and so long as they are hostile that's a good thing. The only reason to talk to them is to trick them into letting us snoop, or to please the peace-pansies out there who get off on the illusion that anyone can reason with a nutjob dictator of a terrorist state if only the lips are moving on both sides.
Iran wants a war because they perceive us as weak- and they are correct, the most vocal Americans are very, very weak and are just begging to get raped. There is no talking to Iran, either, because they have hope of getting their way if they can just out wait the administration and then have to deal with a White House staffed by Iran's allies. We'd be better off bypassing the Iranian government entirely and going to their people- not through the stilted and BS format of the sort of debate Iran would approve of, but directly, by blasting them with our message [not some silly arse moderated debate] on radio waves on every frequency.
I wish the President would go live on a debate broadcast over all news networks; Nixon would have, Kennedy would have, Reagan would have.
This isn't an issue that is debatable- Iran wants nukes and that's all there is to it; the Iranian government as it is is ALWAYS going to use terrorism and its reach is already worldwide. We cannot allow that, though we are likely to talk long enough to see a nuclear Iran if we keep up the verbal charade, and once it goes nuclear we're just going to have to eat any terrorism it throws at us. Preventing this is a matter of national survival- there is no negotiable halfway point, no middle ground to seek out, nothing to debate, and stalling puts us in peril. Debate should take place among Iranians, not foreigners, but the Iranian people cannot debate so long as the regime remains in power.
Bush's speeches are on the web for the whole world to see. Amaddogonjihad's on the record too. There is no point in wasting more time on talk unless the goal is to use the talk as a distraction - as Iran is doing- to gather enough intel for a strike to take out the regime.
Honestly, I don't think Bush can hang with him in a debate. Bush isn't willing or able to articulate why it is inevitable that the western way of life be the standard for the entire world. He isn't able to be our dissemenator of the tenets of the Magna Carter. He's not Sir Francis Bacon.
"many Americans have asked me to talk to them and offer my opinions to them."
Give us the Americans' names and we can put them on the Watch List.
He can tell me why he held 52 Americans hostage back in 1979. And why his chicken-ass mullah friends let them go when Reagan became President.
Because the new sheriff would have used his "six-shooter"
Oh yes, wait a minute Mister Postman
Wait Mister Postman
Please Mister Postman, look and see
If there's a letter in your bag for me
(Please, Please Mister Postman)
Why's it takin' such a long time
For me to hear from that boy of mine
Maybe he's going to take some people hostage again after all these years?
You know the problem is that the democrats will embrace him and enable him... we have to stop allowing the media and the libs to enable those people that don't agree with the American way of life. I don't give a sh*t about the rest of the world. They don't give a rats ass about themselves... its survival of the fittist baby and I want to win... the hell with them all...
Here's another message: If a single American or Israeli ever dies because of an Iranian nuclear missile, and a US liberal chimes in to say that "It's the USs fault", it is a national duty on the part of every American citizen to slap that liberal until his nose bleeds.
Literally, while standing before them, to smack them across the face, and if they are still standing, to do it again until their nose bleeds.
I'd like to know that one as well.
Many Americans=Peolosi, Murtha, Kerry, Reid....
Not a one of them would have debated Hitler.
Can I do it before they utter a single word?

OK. I want a show of hands.
