    Instead of spending billions trying to find out what the Iranians think of the U.S., the CIA should just ask M-man and they'll get a slam dunk answer. Probably for free!

    We're the ones that have blockaded them. mabey it's our definition of friend that needs improvement. We're still blockading Cuba for Pete's sake just out of spite while trading with Russia and China.

    @ louie. You can believe anything you want but Iran does not respect Obama one iota!

    I suspect we do not know as much as we would like. It would be impossible to find all the poison shells in Syria they are too easy to hide. Perhaps Russia is not so enthusiastic to have a lot of nuclear weapons to their south and unless they forgot their brains the Muslims do not seem to like Russia. Western Europe is their customer, not their enemy. Russias tanks are probably rusting away and they are no longer a super power. I would think they would be worried about China. So Iran's leaders need Russian support and will cooperate with them.

    There will always be friendlier factions and not-so-friendly factions in Iran. The key now and in the future is for those factions to both be able to exist and be heard. In the recent past the friendlier factions were suppressed by the Ayatollah and Ahmadinejad. There was a chill over these friendlier factions after the government crackdown during the previous election. Now they may feel it's safe to come out of hiding again.

    IF they can both exist and Iran doesn't get caught up in the growing Caliphate in Islamic nations... it's a good thing for the world.

    Iran's new leader knows we have a weak President and now they can advance their nuclear and jihad agendas without interference from America. Just ask Putin!

    This is an objective matter not to be analyzed by neighborhood politics.
