The Iranian government and I agree

I never thought I’d find myself in agreement with the Iranian government, but pigs are flying, and wisdom emanates from Tehran:

US President Barack Obama’s offer to talk to Iran shows that America’s policy of “domination” has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.

“This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed,” Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

“Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change,” he added.

Actually, I don’t need to impute too much wisdom to the Iranian government. The slightly less than half of the nation that hadn’t let Obama worship rot its brain had figured this one out too.  I hope Israel still retains some cojones (and that the citizens elect Bibi), because Israel is all we’ve got left between us and a nuclear Iran.  Which reminds me of a bumpersticker I saw on a car a few months ago:  “Don’t worry, America.  Israel will protect you.”
