Iran's Pre-Conditions For Talks WithThe US

The Chosen One may be willing to sit down with Iran's Ahmadinejad without any pre-conditions, but the Iranians apparently have other ideas.

According to IRNA Iran's vice president for Media Affairs Mehdi Kalhor, Iran has two pre-conditions that have to be met before any meeting with the Americans - pulling all our troops out of the Middle East and abandoning our ally Israel:

Vice President for Media Affairs Mehdi Kalhor said on Saturday that Iran has set two preconditions for holding talks with the United States of America.

In an exclusive interview with IRNA, he said as long as US forces have not left the Middle East region and continues its support for the Zionist regime, talks between Iran and US is off the agenda.

It is the Americans who are in dire need of reestablishing ties with Iran, he underlined.

Iran is not obliged to reestablish ties with the US, he said.

"If they take our advise, grounds for such talks would be well prepared," he said.

It is stupidity to hold talks without any change in US attitude, he underlined.

Actually, given Obama's views and the views of top members of his foreign policy team, Iran might just get what it wants out of an Obama administration...a US admission of defeat and an end to US support for the 'Zionist entity.'

Just for the sake of clarity, one and all remember that Barack Hussein Obama’s Foreign Policy standard is to sit down and talk to America’s enemies without pre-conditions. Of course the main reference to the “no pre-condition” Foreign Policy is Iran.

I wonder if “no pre-conditions” apply when the enemy demands pre-conditions as if that enemy is in the superior position of military strength.
