Are we appeasing Iran?

Bush intends to establish U.S. diplomatic outpost in Iran

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration will announce in mid-November, after the presidential election, that it intends to establish the first U.S. diplomatic presence in Iran since the 1979-81 hostage crisis, according to senior Bush administration officials.

Will Fox News, William Kristol, and the rest of the conservative establishment shout, "Appeasement!"???

W still scrambles to rescue something for his legacy.
His much-heralded mid-East peace initiative, announced earlier this year amid much hoopla at Annapolis summit, seems to have come to naught.
There's some chance that recent negotiations with N. Korea will bear fruit - a bit on the "too little, too late" side... after W deliberately, vocally walked away from negotiations in his first months in office, 7.5 years ago.

He must be getting desperate to even entertain the idea of a diplomatic mission to Tehran.

Meanwhile, Gitmo is still a festering wound in the side of America's international reputation.

Have a nice day.
