Hit my funny bone this morning with what they are calling a “news” piece. Concerning the Lebanese strikes that were called off yesterday due to increasing violence.

Somehow that brought us back to Bush/Iraq/Saudi Arabia/Iran.

Some regional analysts believe that many of the area’s problems – in the Palestinian territories, Lebanon, Iraq and elsewhere – will not be fundamentally settled until the Americans and Iran reach a strategic understanding.

That would clearly have to include a resolution of differences over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, an issue on which Washington has taken an unbending stand.

Does this, or does this not imply that Tehran’s stand is cooperative?? And where the heck does that come from? LOL
