Obama: Resolutely Determined to Do Absolutely Nothing About Iran

Dan from NY:

This comes from an Iranian news site (, and you have to assume the Iranian regime has to approve the slant of everything that goes out.

Even so, the idea that Obama is still offering to engage the Mullahs, and being ridiculed for it, is more like a running joke over there than it is news or giving away state secrets.

Details of Obama’s letter to Iran released

TEHRAN, Jan. 18 (MNA) -- A number of Iranian officials have released the details of the letter that U.S. President Barack Obama recently sent to Tehran [...] warning that closing the Strait of Hormuz is a “red line” that would provoke a response by the United States.

Obama has called for negotiations ... MP Ali Motahhari said on Wednesday, “In the letter, it has been stated that ‘closing the Strait of Hormuz is our red line’ and they have requested direct negotiations..."

Obama says U.S. will not take hostile action against Iran ... “In the letter, Obama has mentioned cooperation and negotiation based on the interests of the two countries... He has stated in the letter that they will not take any hostile action against the Islamic Republic of Iran..."

“Obama’s letter indicates that the United States has become afraid of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s might and has realized the point that an arrogant spirit is of no use... The important issue is that without the Islamic Republic of Iran’s permission, no country can benefit from the Persian Gulf."

Mr. Chamberlain, meet Mr. Obama.
