Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday called for a “diplomatic surge” including talks with US foe Iran, to help stabilize the situation in Iraq.

The Illinois Senator battling Hillary Clinton for his party’s nomination called for more pressure on the Iraqi government to embrace political reconciliation and a regional “diplomatic surge that includes Iran.”

“We should be talking to them as well,” Obama told the top US General in Iraq David Petraeus and US ambassador to Baghdad Ryan Crocker.

“I do not believe we are going to be able to stabilize the situation without that” said Obama, adding that a plan for US troop withdrawals was needed to force Iraqi factions to work together.

    Obama is unbelievable! How can one reason with the unreasonable? His recent statements concerning Iran, etc., really show his ignorance concerning radical Islam. You cannot appease or reason with radicals. He’s totally oblivious to the situations that will face the US in the coming years, concerning Islam. McCain has hit the nail on the head. Radical Islam is the biggest threat to the world in the 21st century. He’ll get my vote.

    Wow!
    At least Irish leaders are just incompetent,corrupt and bumblingly inneffective crooks ( They keep getting caught :) ) who would sell their souls ONLY to businessmen.
    If this guy gets in, America may as well change it’s flag to the crescents and stripes.

    Richard,

    Who said anything about nuking them all? That is pretty violent on your part. What we HAVE BEEN DOING is pursuing diplomatic action and economic sanction, but commie China has thwarted our efforts to achieve justice. You know China right? The other failed socialist state, like Venezuela. Or Cuba. There is no reasoning with madmen like Ahmadinejad or Khameini, but fostering DEMOCRATIC regime change, among the millions of dissatisfied Iranians who are fed up with their leadership’s ruining the economy (inflation is at 21% I think, unemployment is officially given as 13% but it was projected to hit up to 50% for the under 30 workforce) and isolationism from the rest of the world. You don’t nuke without provocation, attempting a diplomatic solution, and or conventional warfare. Anyone with half a brain knows that the nuclear option is a last resort. Just like it was in 1945.

    There are one simple reason why Obama shouldn’t be a president that becouse he is black. And there was no country not in past time not in presence, and I frankley beleive it will never happened in the futre, led by black and doing good. There are not even a department in US government ( on any level city, county, state, or federal) led by black and doing good. So who need these experiment.

    Wow Alex- your racist ignorance is astounding. Simply being black should NOT keep anyone from voting for Obama…having said that, there ARE alot of other reasons NOT to vote for him.

    As far as talking to Iran and others…I think nuking them would be alot more effective. (How terribly intolerant of me) tsk tsk tsk.
