Forever Under Construction

Update …

… from Reclaiming Space

“In the last 24 hours, there has been an announcement that the U.S. government is set to join Iran and Syria in talks on Iraq (NYTimes, Iran’s PressTV). Does this really constitute a major policy shift given past Bush administration incitement to kill Iranian “agents”, cut Iran off from world markets, previous refusal to talk and repeated rebuffing of peace and nuclear talks overtures from the Syrian and Iranian administrations respectively? We shall see.”

Thank you PPGG for keeping us updated!
PS: I hope Iran PressTV decides to make a working “about” page sometime soon.

    Homeyra,

    I read the news this morning about the talks. I am a bit dubious. The Bush adminstration is asking Iran and Syria to collaborate to improve security in Iraq while at the same time stating that these talks will not include the nuclear question neither the Lebanese question with Syria. I mean why do you want these two countries to collaborate with the US to bring security to the mess the US has made in Iraq when there are no incentives or reciprocation ? I am waiting for more info…

    Right Sophia. If we have learned something, it’s the “possible” inconsistency of all declarations, by all parties. For now
    This is not going to be an opportunity to change the diplomatic landscape.”
    We shall see…
    Here is a congressman reaction:
    “When this Administration puts the guns on the table and says let’s talk, chances are it’s going to shoot first and ask questions later: just like in Iraq.
