Today, most bloggers I read are pro-talk and anti-preempt.  But it wasnt always that way …… many comments had to be exchanged, networked, and linked betwisxt the global citizenocracy.  It would seem that “CONVERSING” promotes”COMPROMISE,” in some abysmal age-of-communication way …..

Secondly, the tactics of our—as you know, we don’t have relationships with Iran. I mean, that’s—ever since the late ’70s, we have no contacts with them, and we’ve totally sanctioned them. In other words, there’s no sanctions—you can’t—we’re out of sanctions.”—Annandale, Va., Aug. 9, 2004
