No matter how much they ignore every UN resolution.
No matter how much the chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”
No matter how much they threaten Israel’s existence
No matter how much uranium they enrich
No matter how many nukes they build.
No matter how many times they threaten US interests
Let’s face it. Our leadership is weak and Iran knows it. They can wage war against our troops in Iraq. They can provoke our Navy, they can ignore every resolution passed by the shameful UN. They can spew anti-American rhetoric as much as they want because they know we won’t do a damn thing.
Just one day after getting agreement on a draft U.N. Security Council resolution against Tehran, Rice offered the incentive of a “more normal relationship” and expanded trade if Iran gave up sensitive nuclear work, according to the prepared text of her speech to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland…
“If Iran would suspend its uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities – which is an international demand, not just an American one – then we could begin negotiations, and we could work over time to build a new, more normal relationship,” she said.
Rice said this new relationship could be defined not by fear and mistrust but growing cooperation, expanding trade and exchange, and the peaceful resolution of differences.
