I read the news today oh boy .....

'Iran opens military base, calls for nuclear talks'

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran sought to defuse tensions over its nuclear program .... confirming it had let U.N. inspectors visit a military complex and calling for a revival of European Union talks .... It was the first such direct approach by Iran .... since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (who) had adopted a tougher foreign policy stance than his predecessor.

Reuters, what a bunch of apologists/propagandists for warmongers. At the very end of the article's two dozen paragraphs. In the very last line, we get: Ahmadinejad's statement last month that Israel should "be wiped of the map."

This AP story 'Iran Tries Charm to Counter Israel Remarks' offers the tiniest bit more balance. But makes so many masking errors relating to the spirit and integrity of the underlying theme/s. That it is nearly equally worthless (aside from the banner's unseemly distortion);_ylt=AqzeSETtfeytxRMXhLJ4HAxg.3QA;_ylu=X3oDMTA2ZGZwam4yBHNlYwNmYw--

This one I haven't as yet read. But the banner sure is a grabber:

‘A Military Option Is Not on the Agenda’

Newsweek Nov. 3, 2005
In a wide-ranging interview, Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz rules out strikes against Iran

I won't comment, not because I haven't read it. But because of what I think it means.
