I have been looking for a direct quote from President Bush that we would specifically never talk with Iran... still looking... but he did include Iran as a member of the "axis of evil" in a January 29, 2002 speech: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axis_of_evil

And, we know Iran supplied Hizbullah with weaponry against Israel last summer, Ahmadinejad is cozy with Chavez, Iran-manufactured IEDs have taken out our troops in Iraq, and so on....

I just thought I'd throw the name out there, it struck me immediately, and I couldn't think of ...from where : )

When the kids were little, if they needed to think about what they were doing, and re-direct...I 'sometimes' gave them a few minutes to do it on their own

by counting to three.

And IF I got to three,

I re-directed them.

"Violence in Iraq is good for no country in the region," said Araghchi, deputy foreign minister for legal and international affairs [for Iran]

Oh really! Well then, I have some suggestions for Mr. Araghchi and his terrorist sponsoring country.

I also notice that Mr. Araghchi calls for a firm timetable for our withdrawal from Iraq...just like the democrat party.

At a time and at places of our chosing.

I was thinking about how Dick Cheney visited Musharif and had a talk and things started popping over there in Pak. Dick seems to talk pretty good. I guess if there has to be talking, he would be the one who maybe shoud be doing it :)

You only know what you think transpired. The article is from the totally disreputable AP.

The message was also delivered that we have one of their best guys and he is spilling his guts. If you don't stop that shit we will hit you precisely where it hurts the most.

Having read the entire thread...I believe that some folks are having a gut level knee jerk reaction, based upon being a part of history that demonstrates clearly that negotiation does not work.
I believe we have been at war with Iran since 1979 and that we will get revenge in all due course.
I believe that there is much more going on behind the scenes than ANY of us know.
I believe the article and statements were INTENTIONALLY inflamatory, to get a reaction.
I believe our President is far better at poker than Nutjob is at chess.....
I believe I will give this the "48 hour rule" and let a few things play out a bit more, before I "throw out the COnservative baby with the bathwater"
If this turns out to be factual and we ARE in FACT "NEGOTIATING" with IRAN on ANYTHING that involves the US or our Troops...I will be more than happy to comment further, and in FULL VOICE (and on more than an internet forum)
Keep the Faith.....Keep prayers up for our President and ALL of our men and women in harms way.
And for the love of GOD< do not start acting like a liberal ;-) LOL

We don't have enough sources at this point to double-check the nature of the talks, but I do refer you to post #34 for a quote --- from the White House diplomatic corps --- that disturbs me.

When the Baker Commission ISG report came out last Fall, many of the recommendations including "talks" with Iran were roundly ridiculed and condemned on this forum and rightly so. Now, it's acceptable. Who would have thought?

Phooey on that. Alleging that posters here sound like "liberals" because of voicing our concerns is one of those tactics used by RINOs to try and shut others up.

I was not accusing you or anyone else of anything my friend...please address your anger elsewhere.
I merely made a statement.

Now, having "laid down the law," you're going to get touchy. You're clearly putting down other FReepers for our views. We're ALL entitled to our views here.... aren't we?

Interesting report over here:

The Iraq neighbors’ peace conference ends by deciding on a follow-up at foreign ministers’ level

******************

Debka implies we laid in on the Iranians,...since we have some new Intel from the defected Iranian General...

THanks...I read that a bit earlier. As I tried to say earlier, I believe that many MANY things are going on that we are not privy to :-)
Keep the Faith!

I don't accept the term "talks" in the present context. Bush bashers want to use the term to convey the thought that he is changing his policy to that they have been suggesting.

What I believe is actually happening is "tell". W is using the opportunity to convey a oneway message in no uncertain terms. Like the Godfather, he is making an offer they shoud not refuse.

All the talk in the world will not change minds in Iran,they are brainwashed jihadists who are tasked by Mohammed(Smith I think)to kill all infidels.Action is all they understand.

I don't remember all this hysteria when Reagan talked to the Commies or Bush 1 to the Saddam's thugs. It isn't the talking to them that worries me. It what is decided in the talks. IF they did this merely to say "See Junk Media and Democrats, we talked to them" fine. IF this story below is what is on the agenda, then we got a huge problem.

Interesting to note the Democrats have the same talking points as the Islamofacists in Tehran.

You know Nancy P, John Murtha, Maxine Waters and the rest of the Democrat Clown Posse, you sound JUST like the people in Iraqn who stone gays and theat women like the private property of some male. You all should be REAL proud of your stupid pathetic selves. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1798823/posts?page=1 Iran Tells US To Set Timetable For Iraq Exit

Our recent foreign policy actions make us look weak and clutching at straws, and possibly feeling overly pressured by congress. IMHO.
