It begins: Obama drafting letter to new pen pals in Iran

posted at 8:54 pm on January 28, 2009 by Allahpundit

Not to Ahmadinejad but to Khamenei himself, apparently. That way he doesn’t have to worry about getting any rambling 18-page replies.

State department officials have written at least three drafts of the letter, which gives assurances that Washington does not want to overthrow the Islamic regime but merely seeks a change in its behaviour. The letter would be addressed to the Iranian people and sent directly to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, or released as an open letter.

One draft proposal suggests Iran should compare its relatively low standard of living with that of some of its more prosperous neighbours and contemplate the benefits of losing its pariah status in the west. Although the tone is conciliatory, it also calls on Iran to end what the US calls state sponsorship of terrorism.

The letter is being considered by the new secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, as part of a sweeping review of US policy on Iran. A decision on sending it is not expected until the review is complete…

Saeed Leylaz, a Tehran-based analyst, said a US letter would have to be accompanied by security guarantees and an agreement to drop economic sanctions. “If they send such a letter it will be a very significant step towards better ties but they should be careful in not thinking Tehran will respond immediately,” he said.

I wonder if they’ll tack a “P.S. Sorry” on at the end. In fairness, there may be an ulterior motive to this: Ahmadinejad’s up for reelection in June and Khatami, the “moderate” who preceded him in office, is evidently planning to challenge him. By showing a conciliatory face now, The One may be trying to swing Khamenei towards backing Khatami and the reformists and leaving Ahmadinejad and the hardliners out in the cold. Although if Khamenei’s planning to dump the tiny terrorist for anyone, I’d guess it’s for his protege Larijani. He is high on Hopenchange, after all.

As for what sorts of security guarantees the U.S. would have to concede, it’s easy to guess where they’ll start. Thanks again, New York Times!

Here’s an idea for a letter:

“Ayatollah Khamenei c/o President Ahmadinejad,

The first step towards reconciliation begins with your first step out of Tehran.

Of course, this letter is a mere formality.

In the time it took you two to read this, you have ingested enough poison to kill 30 camels.

Toodles,

MB007 on January 28, 2009 at 9:07 PM

I could/maybe/kinda-sorta/possibly see it being a “meh” worthy tactic, if the goal is to shoulder Ahmadinejad to the way-side.

It’s not like there’s been any (non-nuclear) progress over the last 30 years.

But, if it’s anything even remotely resembling us bending over, at all .. then, no.

President: Breaking Holocaust box means cutting Zionism vein

Tehran, Jan 28, IRNA – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday that examining the issue of Holocaust is equal to cutting the vein of the Zionist regime.

“Zionists are plundering nations’ resources and their wealth by making use of politicians and political parties as well as dominating most of the world’s power, wealth and media sources,” said the president in a message sent to a conference on Holocaust held in the Sharif University of Technology in Tehran.

The conference was dubbed, ‘Holocaust? A Sacred lie by West.’

Good luck with that letter, Barry.

I’ve gotta agree with artist.

And here I was thinking that after Hillary and McCain lambasted him on being a incompetent noob, he’d actually wizened up on this issue.

Dear Mr. Khamenei,

Like my wife, for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country. I am ashamed of our past criminal actions, but I hope that now we can all be friends. Rest assured that Hillary no longer wants to obliterate your country and Bill asked me to say thanks for your check for the library.

No, they’ll say “They like Obama, so we like them. They just have left over aggression from Bush, so they’re just taking a little time to blow it off.”

And Obama will say, “No, seriously Iran, I want to be friends! Hey, stop kicking me in the balls, we’re friends, don’t you get it?”

which gives assurances that Washington does not want to overthrow the Islamic regime but merely seeks a change in its behaviour.

This is a joke right? Suggesting a ‘change in the Islamic regime’s behaviour’ is the same as saying, get ready, we’re coming to get you. At least that’s how the Islamists will see it. I’m surprised the letter even contains this much “strength”.

I am so sick to death of ISLAM
Arab countries

Why dont all the muslims apologize for both all of their crimes against all of humanity and the fact they are emulating their Nut case leader mohammed..

Muslims have publicly on TV , you tube, news media and on their own web sites Admitted to the following crimes

Child marriages – mohammed did it
Child rape – mohammed did it
Child molesting – mohammed did it ashisha 9 years old.
Beheading – mohammed did it
Mass murder of jews and civilians – mohammed did it
Suicide bombings – the only thing muslims ever invented
Torture of civilians – mohamed did it
torture of soldiers – mohammed did it
Racism – islam against the jews is a constant drum beat
amputation – same thing just insert mohammed
lying
cheating
stealing
looting
sacking
Genicide – hey still going on in sudan (the liberals favorite spot)

Crap the list is endless

So to our so called President
If your not too busy Surrendering to every arab you can find
Maybe you should actually Check your facts
and Tell abina wakjob to go suck an egg
and when muslims Repent of these horrific crimes
against humainity
when musims repent of their WAR crimes

Maybe maybe then we might want to talk to them
but not until..

or unless you and pelozi and reid, murtha shummer , todd kerry, kennedy crap just throw in Democrats and half of the are ready to FORMALLY tel the world that Obama the so called messia
has decided with all the liberals
to surrender and turn into muslims..

Sorry sir:
You are not worthy of the office you now hold..
Not even one week has passed and you are ready to turn the usa into either

Obama, these people that you want to make nice-nice with are not the same folks you came across in St. Louis or Germany during the campaign. They are a little angrier and have no stars in their eyes. They have been spoon-fed hatred since the day they were born. There is an agenda that does not include you and your pretty smile. Stop trying to impress people by taking stances the polar opposite of George Bush and think about what you are doing. Our safety and security trumps your ego. And if you can’t understand that now, my guess is it will become very apparent in 2012.

Uhhh….well…there was this vote today…on something called the stimu…Save America Through Higher Taxation bill…and a whooooooooole bunch of GOP congress-people voted against it.

If not hyperspace, perhaps you were suffering from a self-induced coma?

Every Republican in The House of Representatives voted NO on Obama’s stimulus package tonight. They did this 1. Because the legislation is crap, and 2.The telephone lines in their offices were melting from all the negative calls. They listened to us and grew some gonads. They also set the stage for the Senate to block this crummy legislation and endanger the life span (Political) of any backstabbing RINO senator who thinks it would be a good idea to go all bipartisan on us. In other words “They took a stand…Today!”

And in one fowl swoop the Obama administration gives up the United States position of strength in the middle east in a vain and useless attempt at appeasing a bunch of Islamic fascists who will only be happy when the United States of America and the Freedom and justice it represents is completely and utterly destroyed and replaced with a pan global Islamic Caliphate.

That’s giving Obama much to much credit. As someone else suggested, I think this is more in line with his William Ayers school of thought.

His naiveté is breathtaking.

This is a good thing, I think. When the Islamonutsos rebuke the Left through its Patron Saint, The One, finally they will shut up and we can do what we have to with Iran in a united kind of way. So in a way, there is a bringing together by The One. Just that the Left never expected the Unity to be delivered as a consequence of being completely naive asshats who finally get enough sand kicked in their faces.

Sorry Bishop, didn’t mean to butt in on you but we wanted to make we all stay on the same page for the coming battles. It’s gonna be a long hard four years.

.3 you might add the Rsuh Limbaugh fiasco. It drew much needed attention to the power of a pissed off electorate and gave them the gonads to do the right thing!
