The "T" Word

Iran Geneva Talks.jpg

So Iran likes to play games.

Even so, we're miles down the road from the bombastic mentality of BushCo., those folks with fingers in their ears and eyes closed muttering "axis of evil" over and over. Funny how the five-way negotiations in Geneva on nuclear issues with Iran — jump-started by the Administration — got so little attention last week while the comparatively trivial 2012 Olympic announcement ended up shaking the echo chamber.

If it's a rather blunt image, maybe the obvious could use the belaboring. They're talking, even doing some dealing.
