Iran Tells Us What's Up....

Bush doesn't Listen. Sigh.

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran signaled on Wednesday it did not plan to make major concessions on its nuclear program at talks this week to be attended by world powers including the United States.
Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Iran was ready to negotiate but showed no sign of backing down on the issue at the centre of the dispute -- Iran's refusal to halt atomic activities.
The Bush administration said sending Burns was intended to send a signal to Tehran and others that it wants to find a diplomatic solution to the impasse.

Short version:

We want them to stop their nuclear program. They told us no.
So we decided we need to talk. To which Iran said they don't care what we have to say...they won't stop their program. So....what's the point?

Going back to Iran to talk a peaceful solution to this is a waste of time. Either we give up on disarming them, or we take action. Anything else is a pipe dream.
