    Obama has begun discreet talks with Iran, Syria

    Obama has begun discreet talks with Iran, Syria

    Obama has begun discreet talks with Iran, Syria - Yahoo! News UK


    Officially, Obama's overtures toward both Tehran and Damascus have remained limited.

    In an interview broadcast Monday, Obama said the United States would offer arch-foe Iran an extended hand of diplomacy if the Islamic Republic's leaders "unclenched their fist."

    Meanwhile, his secretary of state Hillary Clinton warned that the Israeli-Syrian track of the Middle East peace negotiations took a back seat to the Israeli-Palestinian track, especially because of the recent war in Gaza.

    However, even before winning the November 4 election, Obama unofficially used what experts call "track two" discussions to approach America's two foes in the region.


    This is one campaign promise I wish he would break.





    Iran has already balked at Obama. What do you all expect Syria to do? Where is the "compromise" anyway?

    Awesome!

    I doubt there are any campaign promises you want him to keep, Reverend.

    Hmm...


    Demand VA Eases Transition To Civilian Life
    Ensure Adequate Number Of VA Clinics
    Establish Standards For Caring For Brain-Injured Veterans
    Fight Job Discrimination Against Guardsmen And Reservists
    Fully Fund VA
    Improve Care For Various Injuries And Women's Health Through VA
    Improve Military's Mental Health Screening And Care
    Improve VA Administrative Systems
    Pass VA Budget On Time
    Update Veterans Affairs Hospital System



    For starters and that is just on one subject. There are plenty I wish for him to keep.



    But please. Lets not to the "lets attack the poster so we can avoid discussion of Obama" dance. It is played, it is transparent, and it is boring.


    What say you about this topic?

    Iran's comments are more for its own people than anything else. This is where Bush did not respond appropriately in my mind and one of the reasons I voted for Obama. Diplomacy should not be dropped from the table based on the rhetoric of a president who is up for reelection.

    Nope. But at the same time, I think trying to appease them and seeing the results of that is worse.


    Perhaps there is another way.

    Do you not know the difference between appeasement and dialogue? Do you have some inside information that we are "trying to appease them", or are you just fishing for hot buttons?

    Just because there is dialogue doesn't mean we can not bomb them.

    All that about "lets avoid debating the poster" and this is the best you can contribute to the topic?
