I can see what Bush was trying to do though, I just don't agree with it. He's obviously trying to piss Iran off enough that they do something stupid like attack Israel. This will allow us to fully invade them without international backlash. The problem is, Iran will never do anything like that. Ali Hoseyni would never allow for something that could possibly jeopardize his power.

The UN has been negotiating with Iran for 8 years; how has that worked out?
If one party, Iran, shows absolutely NO desire to discuss the issues, NO desire to meet the requirements to hold talks, NO willingness to negotiate in good faith, how do you think any attempt will come out? What has been their response to Obama’s overtures? Oh yeah, before they talk to us, we must change OUR ways and totally comply with their demands.
Good luck with that.
How has that worked for the UN so far with Iran? How has this worked with Korea? What level of denial does it take to comprehend that these despotic nations don’t give a rats buttocks about OUR notion of peaceful intentions and negotiating in GOOD faith?
