You Can't Talk to the Insane

Sphere: Related Content

There's been alot of talk lately of us opening up a dialogue with Iran. The UN has tried that recently and it has gotten them what they've always gotten--nothing. How the hell are you supposed to rationally discuss issues with leaders who say this:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, if he ever became the supreme decision maker in his country, would "sacrifice half of Iran for the sake of eliminating Israel," Giora Eiland, Israel's former national security adviser, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

At present, Eiland stressed, the ultimate decision maker in Iran was Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, 67, whom he said was "more reasonable." But, Eiland went on, "if Ahmadinejad were to succeed him - and he has a reasonable chance of doing so - then we'd be in a highly dangerous situation."

We have a man who has repeatedly threatened to wipe Israel off the map and who now says he'd sacrifice half his nation to do it. There is no talking to these people.

Note that they say that Khamenei is "more reasonable". This "reasonable" man once said the "Human rights are a weapon against Islam". Sounds reasonable to me.
