U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell has said his country is open to dialogue with Iran. Powell told the Washington Post newspaper that because of new developments in nuclear policy, Arab relations, and the acceptance of U.S. help for earthquake victims, the U.S and Iran should keep open the possibility of dialogue at an appropriate point in the future. Iran's President Mohammad Khatami today rejected any dialogue with the United States unless the Bush administration radically changed its policy on Iran.

This reaction was inevitable and is a reponse directed more
to internal Iranian politics following on EU/US pressure on Iran
to concede to inspections etc on Bushehr than it is to the
US.

There's still lots of room for a breakthrough here.

smart and intelligent guy.
He was on a show"charlie rose" for one hour some months ago.
I happened to catch that show. Bascally , in a nut shell ,
what Khatami said was that the Iranians wanted to be treated with respect .
Fair enought....
But , good luck with Bush in charge. :P :P

Actually the Iranians got a good deal from the british, germans and french govt.
They put a stop to their nuclear plants, get inspections, but can resume and go nuclear within 6 months.
The US wanted much more than that.
The truth is that after Iraq's invasion, it became ever more obvious to the Iranians that nuclear power was indespensable to their survival as a nation. And you cannot blame them for reaching such a conclusion.

I figured Iran got a good deal too - at US expense,
So did Russia. But the US ran Iran into the dirt for many
months until it was disclosed that some of the suspicions
about the Iran nuke program turned out to be true and
even the EU was angry with Iran. At that point, Iran
capitulated to the more stringent UN inspections and
the story ended. Is that not how you recall it ending?

The Empire makes demands.

Those demands are to be met.

The Empire is to be served.

Learn this concept.

Live this concept.

Love this concept.

The empire is also over expending (much like other empires before it ) and will fall flat on it's a..ss soon.
And lots of people will indeed LOVE THAT CONCEPT....

That's exactly the point Khatami was making.


:P :P :P :P He didn't like that either.

In addition to Iran being the 2nd most prolific
natural gas source after Russia, Iran just discovered
a new 38 B bbl elephant oilfield.

The US will need to be importing a lot of oil in the years
to come. Some of the world's largest oil corporations are
good friends of the Bush's and Dick Cheney.

Iran needs time to take the edge off the theocratic
aspects of its society. I think Iran is stuck with an
unworkable constitution and it shows in the rebelliousness
of youth.

The Iranian oil discovery was announced a few months ago.

As I recall, Japan had first dibs on it and Japan risked losing its
claim to first invest by holding Iran's feet to the fire on the
nuclear issue.

I don't know where the oil field is, Iran looks all the same to me.

I don't think it is in the Bam area or the reporters would have
said something.

Azadegan Oilfield project to kick off next year.
US corporations have been excluded from bidding.

Reserves estimates vary. In this go-round, I saw 26B bbl. This is still orders of magnitude larger than any Alaskan oil find and offshore Canada. It is more in the order of another North Sea.

Happy New Year!!

Excuse me.

You can't talk here. You're not on the bidders' list.

You don't even rate in Russia. BP has staked out its interest
in the Russian Federation. Who's next, The Netherlands' Shell Oil
and then France's Total-Elf? Norway's Statoil? Italy's AGIP?

You seem to think you are the only nation that can
assemble capital.

Take a number.

Always putting a nice spin on things. Showing the relief team in Iran talking about how Iranians like them and even threw a small party for the new year for them.:P
Is that why the Americans feel the need to wear bullet proof jacket while they are there?
Why is it that everything has to be a huge photo op here?
Really ! who's kidding who?

FALFURRIAS, Texas (CNN) -- President Bush said U.S. humanitarian assistance to Iranian quake victims doesn't signify an easing of relations with Tehran, and he demanded the Islamic nation's leaders hand over captured al Qaeda operatives and "abandon their nuclear weapons program."

By all accounts, Americans were very, very warmly rec'd.
I don't know why the President is talking about a weapons
program. I thought the EU and the UN made an Iran inspections deal everybody was happy with. I wasn't aware the US wasn't happy with this deal. Perhaps they are just angry they aren't on
the bidders' list for the big oil project.
