The Iran Issue: Bush did in fact dismiss Iranian offer

This week an interesting story appeared in The Washington Post -- buried on page 16, of course, lest anyone think it was of the slightest importance. It revealed that documentary proof has now emerged confirming the fact that in the spring of 2003, the regime of President George W. Bush -- flush with its illusory "victory" in Iraq -- spurned a wide-ranging peace feeler from Iran that offered "full cooperation" on every issue that the Bushists claim to be concerned about in regard to Tehran: "nuclear programs, acceptance of Israel and the termination of Iranian support for Palestinian militant groups."

In other words, everything that Bush says he wants from the Iranians now, he could have had for the asking -- three years ago. What then can we conclude from the rejection of this extraordinary initiative? The answer is obvious: The Bush faction is not really interested in curbing nuclear proliferation or defusing the powder keg of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the regional and global terror that it spawns.


Meanwhile, what ever happened to Osama bin Ladin? Isn't he why we have 3,000+ dead from 9/11 & Afghanistan, and almost that many dead in Iraq alone? Oh, no, bin Ladin is responsible for 9/11 & Afghanistan, Bush is responsible for Iraq...almost forgot.
