talk iraq with iran

Direct talks with Iran can't hurt. There were overtures from Iran after 9/11, and in 2002 Bush spurned them, starting with his stupid Axis of Evil State of the Union Address, undermining moderates in Iran and helping lead to the election of the current hardline Israel-baiting idiot, Ahmadinejad. So I dunno what progress we can make and how far our interests in Iraq (the putative topic for talks) coincide, but talking can't hurt. Assuming it isn't some neo-con plot to talk and manufacture a failure to justify an attack on Iran...
