They’re going to do what?!?
…..a top U.S. diplomat will join colleagues from other world powers at a weekend meeting with Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator in a break with past Bush administration policy.
……William Burns, America’s third-highest ranking diplomat, will for first time attend talks with the Iranian envoy in Switzerland aimed at persuading Iran to halt activities that could lead to the development of atomic weapons.
The Bush administration shouldn’t even give the Iranian crapweazels the time of day. I don’t know what they expect to accomplish with this, other than granting Amahdinejad attention he doesn’t deserve.
If Burns has any balls, he’ll tell Iran these terms of “negotiation”; stop producing weapons grade nuclear material, or our B2’s will reduce their facilities to a little glowing stain in the desert sand.
But I won’t hold my breath.
And just to prove my point:
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday vowed that Iran would not yield in the crisis over its nuclear drive as world powers awaited a response from Tehran to a proposal aiming to end the standoff.
Say it ain’t so.
