"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Ground paved for true nuclear talks

Friday prayer in Iran was less fiery than usual today. With much less nuclear rhetoric, leaving Provisional Friday Prayer Leader of Tehran Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani with only words to assist in pulling the wool over the eyes of us in the West.

Some pre-positioning goes on to allow the finger to be pointed to the West/U.S. when Tehran remains obstinate it's future response; which will just allow for more time to continue their research.

Rafsanjani said, "Yet, signs are observed that uncalculated moves might disturb this favorable atmosphere, although the most appropriate thing to do is to pursue the matter through holding fruitful talks and trust building on both ends."

Looks like a holding pattern for now...
