An alternative to rattling our swords and threatening Iran

March 20, 2009 | By | 2 Replies More

What’s a good alternative to constantly rattling our swords and threatening Iran?   Talking to Iran.  Opening up a dialogue.  Making it clear that there is an alternative to needless, destructive counter-productive and expensive war.   Allowing Iran to save face by making sure that it is our country that takes the first step to a constructive relationship.   This video illustrates one of the main reasons why I voted for Barack Obama.

    What a marvelous change from his predecessor, Mr. "I'm-a-uniterer", whose contribution was to enhance the us-vs-them attitude whenever another "them" could be identified.

    A few days ago, while channel surfing on my internet tv/radio receiver. I happened on an English language Iranian news broadcast. From the commentators remarks, it seems that the general opinion of President Obama is that he may be no different from past US Presidents with regard to Iran. Perhaps this will show them that he is different.
