    but I can't help but wonder how you can go from considering Iran as an extremely dangerous foe to a county that is not longer considered much of a threat in a few months time.
    Wasn't it just a matter of weeks (or less?) that the question of additional sanctions was raised, and Russia said they would vote against it in the Security Council? Then Iran is going to come to some kind of conference discussing what they are willing to concede to do. Seems like less than 2 wks since the latter development.

    New York Times:
    Iran agreed on Thursday in talks with the United States and other major powers to open its newly revealed uranium enrichment plant near Qum to international inspection in the next two weeks and to send most of its openly declared enriched uranium to Russia to be turned into fuel for a small reactor that produces medical isotopes, senior American and other Western officials said.

    China: Time to act on N. Korea nuke talks
    Chinese premier says Kim Jong Il showing signs of flexibility


    BEIJING - China's premier said Saturday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il was showing signs of flexibility and that China, South Korea and Japan must seize the chance to put talks on disabling Pyongyang's nuclear program back on track.
    Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao told a news conference after a meeting of the leaders of the three countries that they had to "seize the opportunity" to resume the stalled six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

    It's hard to believe that there really are more than one means to skin a cat and that realpolitik and deplomacy might actually have a legitimate place in a statesman's arsenal.
