TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran criticized on Monday U.S. President Barack Obama for saying Tehran posed a threat with its nuclear program and urged Washington and other countries possessing atom weapons to dismantle their arsenals.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi made the comments a day after Obama, who is seeking to engage Iran diplomatically in a sharp policy shift from George W. Bush's approach, set out his vision for ridding the world of such arms.
This is just the start of what happens when you treat rogue nations as equals. now Iran can make these statements, and the world will more and more listen to them, given Obama's tract of trying to "reach out" to them.
By "reaching out" we have given this oppressive regime a hair of legitimacy in thier criticisms... To which will only grow as long as we weak knee it towards them.
