Iran offer to negotiate (BS)

Anyone who thinks that this has any utility is being moronic. Iran is attempting to buy time to break the back of the western alliance against their nuclear program. The Iranians are gambling that the absence of an appetite to confront Iran and the current economic climate means that internal fractures in the alliance can be expanded and manipulated. They have been playing the same game since 2003. Totally absurd that people can't see it. The problem with EU/US support for these negotiations is that they ignore the fact that Israeli patience is rapidly evaporating. They thus increase rather than decrease the liklehood that Israel will feel that diplomacy is exhausted and in turn, risk forcing Israel into a position in which the use of military force is seen as the only remaining option.
