Iran made overtures many times.  We rebuffed them all, including, as I
recall, mocking their letter on this very list.  They are our
self-fulfilling prophecy.  As Condi (Bush's mouthpiece) says, We don't do
diplomacy, we do policy.  The nuclear thing is ridiculous, yes, ridiculous.
It's just an excuse for hostilities on our part, another WMD.

That's a dumb question.  Of course they don't.  They want to rule the roost
and they think all they have to do is wish it so.
