When you hear hoofbeats,

think horses, not zebras. Negotiating with Iran sounds great, doesn't it? Are we supposed to take seriously that we can negotiate a peaceful solution in Iraq with Iran, which has been at war with us for 25 years? At what point are we going to acknowledge that those who are trying every day to kill us may actually be serious about it? It's as if we are deciding to wipe the slate clean -- Iran's horse is a horse, of course. It doesn't change into a zebra because we want it to.

Oh, wait -- all we need to do is reach out to develop greater understanding of the other, right? Tell that to the other, right before he kills your ass dead.
