Dear President Obama, Maybe That Whole "Meeting With Iran Without Precondition" Thing Was A Mistake? It's Time to Change Your Policy

Change That Makes America Look Weak In The Eyes of The Enemy

President Obama, maybe you need to reconsider your diplomacy.

Just days ago, Iran President Mahmoud, in a move to belittle America, called on Obama to apologize for America's past treatment of Iran.

Now the Irani government confirms that Obama's push for "open" diplomacy with Iran makes the United States look weak.

Remember what happened last time Radical Islamists saw the United States as weak?

From Breitbart:

US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.

"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

"Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change," he added.
"If countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fist, they will find an extended hand from us," Obama told al-Arabyi in his controversial first televised interview as sitting President.

CBS News' Leily Lankarani in Tehran reports Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman has turned that comment around on Washington. "If there is any clenched fist in the world, it is the fist of the U.S.A.," Hasan Ghashghavi told a group of journalists Wednesday during a visit to Japan. "Now, in the aftermath of President Obama's slogan of 'change,' the world is waiting to see what is in the unclenched fist of President Obama," said Ghashghavi.

Iranian government spokesman Gholam Hossien Elham said Tuesday: "We will watch to see whether a change has occurred or not, and we shall monitor the (political) ambience and will make our remarks in the right time." Balance that on the fact that Elham was attending a conference called "Holocaust: A Sacred Lie of the West."

NPR has more from Ahmadinejad.

  • On Wednesday, Iran's President Ahmadinejad made it clear that as far as he was concerned, the U.S. would have to remove the perceived threat to his nation before Iran could believe the new U.S. president was serious about engagement.

  • Wherever there is war, Ahmadinejad told a crowd in the western city of Kermanshah, it is either because of America's military presence or America's improper interference. When they say the policy is going to change, Ahmadinejad said, it means they should remove their military forces and take them to their own borders.
