One of the major points of contention between right and left has been the wisdom of offering to talk without preconditions to Iran, as Obama promised during his campaign. Which is why this headline caught my eye:
Iran says Obama's offer to talk shows US failure
The open explains:
US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.
"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.
"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.
May I direct your attention to the large object above the end zone...that would be the SCOREBOARD!
