Get ready to bend over...

Roger Cohen of the International Herald Tribune does his absolute best to make Iran look like a little fragile flower of a place where the wonderful people are just hoping and praying for a little discourse with President know...without pre-conditions...

The Great Satan is great also in its power to exert fascination. "Death to America" has become background noise, as interesting as piped elevator music.
Who's buying it? Not me.

I see this article, and many others of the same flavor across the "main stream" media as an attempt to carry the water for the current administration as the President sets us up to accept capitulation and appeasement on one of the most unpredictable and dangerous regimes on the planet.

Tehran, Iran - Determined chants of "Death to America" rang out in city after city in Iran Tuesday, even as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a mass rally in Tehran that Iran was "ready" to talk to its arch-enemy if the US showed "real change."

Speaking as Iranians marked the 30th anniversary of the Islamic revolution, Mr. Ahmadinejad declared Iran to be "officially … a real and genuine superpower," and that the "shadow of threat has been removed forever" from the Islamic Republic.

"From now on, which power in the world can be found that has the courage to threaten the Iranian nation?" Ahmadinejad asked to cheers.

Facing tens of thousands of flag-waving Iranians at Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Square, Ahmadinejad offered his first response to President Barack Obama's comments Monday that he was "looking for openings" with Iran.
Guess who thinks he holds all the trump cards of the deck? Ahmadinejad (aka: I'ma Nutjob). He doesn't, but our player in the game still doesn't know the "rules" and continues to dump the face cards.
