    We don't really know what was in the letter, but if Obama actually believes he can talk the Iranian regime into giving up its nuclear weapons and long range missile programs and give international arms control inspectors unfettered access to all relevant programs, assets and records, then he is a fool, but it could be that he believes popular support for strong action against Iran is not strong enough among his political base during this run up to the election season and that he needs to stage a series of refusals to cooperate from Iran in order to juice up more support. If you recall, this is what Bush did in preparing to invade Iraq; each time Saddam refused US demands for deeper inspections, the polls showed increases in popular support for military action.

    I have always found that calling them an Axis of Evil and threatening them is the best course of action

    Iran should respond that they will open their sites for inspection at the exact same time that Israel allows it's sites to be inspected. :cool:

    They are testing Obama. He Can't even destroy a downed top secret drone, without worrying about offending Iran. if Obama is reelected the Iranians will be very happy.
