    U.S. to establish presence in Tehran: report - Yahoo! News

    Hopefully this gets the ball rolling towards a peaceful solution. We've got a lot of lost time to make up from when we weren't "negotiating with terrorists and those who harbor them."

    Surprise, surprise, the Bush Administration got tired of the saber-rattling after a good half decade. It didn't have a good run; they're probably doing the right thing.

    Who woulda thunk?

    Wasn't this reported last week? Anyway, if, in the end, it prevents a nuclear armed Iran and war, then it's a good move.

    While I agree, I think that is a big IF

    If it's true, it probably means that no bombing is on the schedule anytime soon.

    That's definitely a good thing.

    I'm reading Legacy of Ashes by Tim Weiner, right now.

    His retelling of the CIA's successful overthrow of Mossadeq is truly fascinating.

    All it took was millions of dollars in bribes, really.

    We really ought to buy more allies that way.

    It's certainly cheaper than bombing them into being our friends.
