Diplomacy suddenly on the table with Iran, after Rand Paul speaks up

While president Obama adn his administration have continued the Bush doctorun of pre-emptive war, Rand Paul, following up on his father's vision of foreign policy, diplomacy and trade first, and when exhasted, follow the constitution and have congress declare war.

Vice President Biden is in the headlines announcing that he's willing to talk to Iran. This is a huge step in the right direction, and we can all thank Ron and Rand Paul for standing for diplomacy and trade and watch it bare fruit, as the Democratic Party is getting worried.. it's losing voters while the GOP is gaining new members happy to get back to the constitution and restore the republic.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson

For Rand to call Iran,but not

For Rand to call Iran,but not Israel a source of instability is ridiculous and a sign of future sellouts to the neocon masters.

didn't you just call someone on a misleading title?

"I do see Iran as a threat to the stability of the Middle East... Recently, President Obama took nuclear weapons off the table in certain circumstances, and I think that's a mistake. I think it's reckless to take them out of the equation." –Rand Paul, 19 May 2010

really? nukes?

of course Ron Paul has been talking peace forever.

dr maybe however is more like, well maybe. quite a difference.

I was not alone and the title was changed

I agree with Rand.. why should nukes be taken off the table?

In the old old west, when people made deals, the guy who had the goods normally put a gun on the table in front of him. It was symbolic, though loaded, the message was clear, "DON'T MESS WITH ME, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT."

That's how I see nukes on the table. Rand may agree with me, maybe not.

But Iran doesn't even have

But Iran doesn't even have nuclear weapons. Nor is there ANY evidence that suggests they are trying to get one.
