Look, I get it. We'd all like to see Iran return to the good 'ol days of the early 70s when
the Shah was in power; the oil was flowing; and women showed their faces.
But, we're not going to get there by threats. We're not going to get there by name calling.
I realize it takes two to make a friendship work. They need to unclench their fist; we need
to unclench our jaw.
That's why I went on TV yesterday to wish them a Happy Nowruz, a Happy
Spring. My seasonal greeting has broken the ice. It has softened their stance.
a look at the special greeting that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has put on the official website
of the Islamic Republic of Iran. They like me. They really like me!
