While Ahmadinejad makes demands for apologies from the US, Obama makes plans to grovel: ‘US drafts conciliatory letter to Iran’
Jan. 29, 2009
The Obama administration is preparing a letter to Iran intended to warm relations and pave the way for direct talks between Washington and Teheran, The Guardian reported Thursday.
Work on the document reportedly began immediately following the November election, upon receipt of a letter of congratulations sent to the elected president by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. (I guess now he’s your new best friend, Barry. Let’s all sing ‘Kumbaya’)
Diplomats quoted by the paper said the letter, which has seen several drafts so far, would aim to change the US tone towards Iran (I hope there are enough kneepads on hand) and offer a different stance on relations between the nations. In it, Obama would seek to assure Teheran that the US is not interested in toppling the Islamic regime, but only to see a change in its conduct. (Oh goodie, and Barry can give Mahmoud a good conduct medal after he joins the Messiah’s fan club)
One of the drafts reportedly calls on the Iranian leader to note the superior standards of living in neighboring countries and consider the advantages of lifting the Islamic Republic’s pariah status in the international community.(Tough sanctions didn’t work, but making Iran feel bad about itself will?)
While its tone is described as conciliatory, the letter also calls on Iran to stop sponsoring terror. (And if they don’t stop sponsoring terror, we might get cross with them. Ewwwww, that’ll do it)
The letter would either be sent to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or released as an open letter.(Yes, Barry, show the whole world what an appeaser you are) It is being considered by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as part of a general review of Washington’s policy on Iran.
On Wednesday a close aide to Ahmadinejad said Iran will not halt its nuclear activities as demanded by Obama’s administration. (Uh oh, Barry, looks like new best friend Mahmoud doesn’t want to play ball with you)
“We have no non-peaceful activities to suspend. All our activities are peaceful and under the supervision of the IAEA,” Aliakbar Javanfekr told Reuters. (This is getting old, Mahmoud)
Javanfekr also dismissed UN resolutions demanding Iran suspend uranium enrichment. “We have passed that stage. We have rejected resolutions. Those resolutions were issued under US pressure. We work in the framework of international laws.” (Even if Barry says, “Pretty please with sprinkles on top?”)
“Obama should act realistically to avoid repeating [former US president George W.] Bush’s mistakes,” he added.(Now that’s hitting below the belt, mentioning Bush and Barry in the same sentence. Tsk, tsk)
Three rounds of UN sanctions have been imposed on Iran but Javanfekr said they were “ineffective.”(After Barry shows him how great his neighbors are living, Mahmoudie will change his mind for sure)
Javanfekr also rejected Obama’s calls for Iran to “unclench its fist,” saying its was “illogical to talk about unclenching fists when Iran is surrounded by American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.” (So much for metaphors, Barry)
Referring to the Obama administration’s suggestion of direct talks, Javanfekr said, “We are ready for talks with some preconditions … including ending America’s military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan,” he said and repeated the demand for an apology. (But , but, but, Barry wasn’t going to call for any pre- conditions. That’s not fair.)
Earlier Wednesday, Ahmadinejad called for “profound changes” in US foreign policy – including an end to support for Israel and an apology to the Islamic republic for past misdeeds. (There you go again, Mahmoud, making more demands when Barry only wants to be best friends with you)
Ahmadinejad also urged Washington to withdraw its troops stationed around the world. He said Iran would be closely watching what President Barack Obama’s new administration does and would welcome a real shift in the US approach. (As long as Barry drops his pants and begs for forgiveness, and pulls out all the troops, everything will be just dandy with the Hitler of Iran.
