Obama: Why, yes, I did just speak to the president of Iran

posted at 5:21 pm on September 27, 2013 by Allahpundit

This deserves more than just a footnote in the Obama press conference open thread. Having snubbed O at the UN a few days ago, evidently Tehran decided it was time for some sugar to keep him on the hook. Expect that pattern to recur over the next six months or year or 10 years or however much longer the endless nuke kabuki plays out. A little obstinance for domestic consumption, then a little outreach to the west to keep hopes of a deal alive to buy more time for bomb-making.

In case you’re wondering what was said, Rouhani’s office tweeted the pleasantries.

@BarackObama to @HassanRouhani: I express my respect for you and ppl of #Iran. I’m convinced that relations between Iran and US.. 1/3
will greatly affect region. If we can make progress on #nuclear file, other issues such as #Syria will certainly be positively affected 2/3
I wish you a safe and pleasant journey and apologize if you’re experiencing the [horrendous] traffic in #NYC 3/3

@HassanRouhani to @BarackObama: In regards to #nuclear issue, with political #will, there is a way to rapidly solve the matter..1/3
@HassanRouhani to @BarackObama: We’re hopeful about what we will see from P5+1 and your govt in particular in coming weeks and months..2/3
@HassanRouhani to @BarackObama: I express my gratitude for your #hospitality and your phone call. Have a good day Mr President. 3/3

@BarackObama to @HassanRouhani: Thank you, Khodahafez.

Rouhani actually broke the news about the phone call minutes before O went to the podium, then hastily deleted his tweet so as not to be seen as preempting Obama. Diplomacy in the age of social media.

Three obvious points here. One: It’s easy to forget amid the hyperventilating (and whitewashing) by western media, but it doesn’t matter whether Rouhani’s a genuine “moderate” or not. He’s a tool of Khamenei; he surely has less say over the direction Iran takes internationally than, say, this guy does. His phone call with Obama isn’t interesting in its own right but rather as a tea leaf into Khamenei’s thinking. Why would he allow this? Is he genuinely softening on a deal? Why on earth would he do that after a decade of nuclear development, with a wider Sunni/Shiite war threatening to erupt in the Middle East? Having a nuke pointed at Riyadh would be very useful for Iran. Why relent on that now?

Two: Needless to say, we’re way, way past the “Assad must go” stage. We were already past it after Obama agreed to a disarmament deal that necessarily involved keeping Assad in power so that he could direct inspectors to chemical weapons depots, but the fact that O’s making nice with Assad’s patron necessarily means the U.S. won’t do anything too muscular in Syria so long as Iran keeps talking. Which, actually, works out well for Obama too: If Assad starts dragging his feet on disarming, hawks here will start demanding that Obama strike. “Can’t do it,” O will say. “We’ve got a chance at a deal with Iran now.” If the Free Syrian Army (and Iranian dissidents) needed any more proof that the U.S. isn’t going to help save the day, this is it. Why, a sham nuclear deal with Iran might be just what Obama needs to revive his presidency. Imagine the media swooning if he managed to “solve” the standoff with an agreement that kicks the can down the road for another five or 10 years.

Three: The fact that he announced this literally minutes before insisting he won’t talk to the GOP about the debt ceiling can only be the White House trying to draw a deliberate contrast. (National Journal has already picked it up.) Why they’d want to do that, I don’t know. The idea, I guess, is to signal to the public that even the nuts in Iran are more reasonable in their demands than Republicans are — at least one liberal demagogue was pushing that point today on MSNBC — but that’s a risky strategy when polling on Iran looks like this. Good luck selling Americans, roughly half of whom are Republicans, on the idea that the GOP is less reasonable than the international terrorist outfit wreaking havoc in Syria and Iraq, champ.

In other news about unfortunate alliances, John McCain has hired disgraced pro-rebel Syrian analyst Elizabeth O’Bagy. It’s time, Maverick.

So let me get this straight…

The President of the United States of America, “won’t negotiate” with the United States Congress on the Country’s debt.

But he’ll go ahead and ‘dial up’ the “President” of Iran, one of our sworn enemies for the last 35 years or so by *their* declarations, …and sweet-talk a brother, about his totally-outlawed Nuke program being not such a big deal, if we just ‘talk things out’.

whoa. …Exactly how big a bowl did I just hit??

Tehran knows Dear Leader well. The lad’s ego must be stroked regularly to keep him pliable.

Moochelle and Valerie know that, too.

However, Tehran does not have the same, shall we say, interest in Dear Leader they do.

And, of course, Dear Leader is either blissfully unaware of what is going on or he mistakenly thinks he can play the game and win.

However, the hook has been set.

The trick in manipulating people like Dear Leader is to make him think he is in control, while knowing all along he will back down whenever offered a chance to save face.

The “President” of Iran is not an obstacle to the supreme goal of imposing more socialism on the US. A Republican controlled Congress is.

All of the rest follows.

After all, Comrade O thinks the only reason Iran is an enemy is the past behavior of US capitalists and their Republican running dog lackeys.

Like I said, if Iran wanted a nuclear weapon to attack another country they would have one by now.

The terrorist regime in Iran would use the nukes as a deterrent not only an offensive weapons… They will cause a lot of death and destruction on others using conventional weapons and terrorism but they think that their nuclear weapons will be a deterrent for others to destroy their regime…

Barack Ø’Carter has been taken for a one-way ride: “Leave the gun, take the canolis.”
Just weeks after being rolled by Mad Vlad (ras)Putín re: Syria, Barry was taken in by a Russian partner in crime – Iran. How embarrassing.
I have perhaps a unique take on this:
As a former moonlighting pro “bouncer” for many years in joints that were “fist city”, I had a special way of dealing with macho belligerents. Whenever a punk, the bigger the better, said:
“I can kick your azz”, I simply calmed them down by saying:
“That won’t be necessary, we can work it out”. And THEN -
♫♪ Boom, Boom, Out Goes the Lights! ♫♪
You lull your enemy to sleep, and I’m not talking sucker-punching (something I have never done) which the Iranians will do.
Coming from ChiTown, you would think that a President of the U.S. would know better than to bring a knife to a gun fight. Sadly, the man-child can’t even defend himself so why should we expect HIM to defend US?

Christien on September 28, 2013 at 2:50 PM

There should have been a stiff price for a conversation with the President of the United States, a serious concession made. It enhances the prestige of two-bit thugs like the mullah regime to get a one-on-one and the history of diplomacy is that isn’t given away for free.

Of course Obama is a hopeless amateur and neither he nor his advisers are all that smart, so this is just another in a series of stupid mistakes.

I hope Israel has figured out a way to bomb the Iranian nuke facilities without us. Unfortunately, it may become a suicide mission for the crews without American support.

According to the latest National Intelligence Estimate, Iran has not made to pursue nuclear weapons. Here are some key statements from the report:

We continue to assess Iran is keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons in part by developing various nuclear capabilities that better position it to produce such weapons, should it choose to do so. We do not know, however, if Iran will eventually decide to build nuclear weapons.
◾Iran has the scientific, technical, and industrial capacity to eventually produce nuclear weapons, making the central issue its political will to do so. These [technical] advancements contribute to our judgment that Iran is technically capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium for a weapon, if it so chooses.
◾We judge Iran’s nuclear decision making is guided by a cost-benefit approach, which offers the international community opportunities to influence Tehran.

Like I said before, if Iran wanted to nuclear weapon they would have one by now. They have the expertise to implement making a nuclear bomb, which is 70 year old technology. Most of you here have insisted that Iran is an irrational actor and that they are run by mad mullahs. According to the NEI, Iran’s nuclear decision is guided by a cost-benefit approach. Irrational actors don’t utilize a cost-benefit approach in their decision making. Mad mullahs who are committed to national suicide in order wipe Israel off the face of the earth are not subject to cost-benefit analyses for their decision making. From this you have to conclude that Iran, although not friendly, are not as mad and irrational as you insist they are.

My advise to you all is to stop listening to AP, Ed, and all other neocon sites. Get out of the Hot Air bubble. Do some research and thinking of your own for a change.

Bush, September 12 2002 “If he declares he has none, then we will know that Saddam Hussein is once again misleading the world.” – Ari Fleischer, December 2 2002 “We know for a fact that there are weapons there.” – Ari Fleischer, January 9 2003 “Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.” – George W. Bush, State of the Union address, January 28 2003 “We know that Saddam Hussein is determined to keep his weapons of mass destruction, is determined to make more.” – Colin Powell, February 5 2003 “We have sources that tell us that Saddam Hussein recently authorized Iraqi field commanders to use chemical weapons.” – George Bush, February 8 2003 “Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised.” – George Bush, March 17 2003 “Well, there is no question that we have evidence and information that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, biological and chemical particularly . . . all this will be made clear in the course of the operation, for whatever duration it takes.” – Ari Fleischer, March 21 2003 “There is no doubt that the regime of Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction. As this operation continues, those weapons will be identified, found, along with the people who have produced them and who guard them.” – Gen. Tommy Franks, March 22 2003 “We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad.” – Donald Rumsfeld, March 30 2003. “Iraq has trained Al Qaeda members in bomb-making and poisons and deadly gases.” – Bush in October 2002. “Saddam Hussein aids and protects terrorists, including members of al Qaeda.” – Bush in January 2003 State of the Union address. “Iraq has also provided Al Qaeda with chemical and biological weapons training.” – Bush in February 2003. “sinister nexus between Iraq and the Al-Qaeda terrorist network.” Powell in his U.N. speech prior to the Iraq War. “We have removed an ally of Al Qaeda.” Bush in May 2003. Stated that the Iraqis were “providing bomb-making expertise and advice to the Al Qaeda organization.” – Cheney in September 2003. “Saddam had an established relationship with Al Qaeda, providing training to Al Qaeda members in the areas of poisons, gases, making conventional weapons.” – Cheney in October 2003. ……. Cheney said Saddam “had long established ties with Al Qaeda.” – June 14, 2004. Bush said, “The reason I keep insisting that there was a relationship between Iraq and Saddam and Al Qaeda, because there was a relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda.” – June 17, 2004.

Saying three things that you wouldn’t do isn’t a policy position, idiot.

Nonintervention is a policy position. I see you are a big government type who believes in an activist government. I’m not. Whether it be domestic or foreign policy, I prefer for the government to do as little as possible (preferably nothing). For example, my policy position on Federal education is for the Federal government not to be involved in education. Once again, a policy position of no involvement is a position.

If Iranian military is not attacking or staging an attack on the US mainland then my policy is to not impose trade sanctions or threaten war. Only diplomatic relations and trade should be sought.

Before the US took on the role of being the world’s policeman, the citizens of this country didn’t need an income tax or a central bank to finance a global military footprint. The Federal government had very little debt and we had a growing economy and middle class. Decades of either being actively involved in war or preparing for war has siphoned off trillions of dollars to fund a war machine that could have been spent on building a greater prosperity. The 16-17 trillion dollar debt is the legacy of your empire.
