US to talk with Iran

Wow.  In a very realist move, the United States is suggesting that it is willing to have diplomatic talks with Iran.  The US has not had diplomatic relations with Iran since 1979.  Now Bush’s administration is realizing that they simply have no other options.  We are bogged down in Iraq and our credibility on the world stage is suspect.  While I don’t often agree with Bush, I am happy to see this responsible move.  I hope for our sake that we will be able to talk with Iran.  I fear that because of our actions in the Middle East, such talks may be useless.
