Will be hard. Not because of the "radicals" in Tehran, but because of the bad blood many people still have due to the Shah.
You can claim what you want about the fanatics presently in Tehran are bad, but the Shah was far worse. His secret police are legendary and were modelled with US help after the SS and Gestapo. Torture and "disappearing's" was common place. The Shah's secret police made Saddam's look like a kindergarten. And since that the Shah was put in place by the US, funded by the US and held in place for a very long time by the US.. then frankly it will take a very long time for "normal relations" to happen... unless the US apologizes that is.
I have a question
WILL AMERICA EVER NORMAILIZE RELATIONS WITH MUSLIMS????????
apologies for teh bad sepeeling
Maybe we don't like to kill Jews.
Someone linked TruthOut trying to prove something ..LOL.

To say no substantial gains can be made has been a self-fulfilling prophecy. Maybe they won't.
Then here is no logical reason it should matter to the US if Iran invades Israel.I don't think it matters much to Iran who the U.S. invaded.
So?Hell, Iran and Iraq had been at odds with one another for years and years.
The offered to open communication and even help, but then they were labeled in the Axis once our President forgot about Afghanistan.As for Afghanistan, not even Iran had much to say about the U.S./Allied invasion of that country.
Oh, so now only Americans can have Anti put on front of it and it's still a word. Typical hubris.Anti-Iranianism? Is that even a word? The U.S. is not anti-Iran...just against the current Islamic govt. There is a big difference. The U.S. holds no ill will against the Iranian people.
"The US holds no ill will against the Iranians people and when we dispatch thousands of cruise missiles on their cities it's for them"
down for you is up
Geez, you really cannot read very well can you? I am not talking about two of anything, Joby. I'm talking about the President of Iran, which is Ahmadinejad...not the Ayatollah (who is the Spiritual Leader, along with the Supreme Council). And I have not mentioned the Ayatollah at all.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
"but the Shah was far worse"
"His secret police are legendary and were modeled with US help after the SS and Gestapo"
Beyond False bordering on lunatic.
"The Shah's secret police made Saddam's look like a kindergarten"
"And since that the Shah was put in place by the US, funded by the US and held in place for a very long time by the US"
But again, with all this false rhetoric you cap it off with Ahmandinejad talking points suggesting that the US apologize for its support of the Shah without once mentioning the radical takeover of the US Embassy and false imprisonment of US citizens for the mere fact that they worked in the embassy and were US citizens.
Your support of radical fringe elements of society is obvious based on your desperate false rhetoric without any historic perspective of the influences on Middle East policy and in Iran in your flagrant anti-American blather.
Carry on; I look forward to many more hysterics about the evil American Empire and your desperate defense of terrorism.
