Hiya, Lizard Nation!

I enjoyed this report:

Iran rebuffs Barack Obama’s surprise offer of ‘new beginning’
From that link:

‘Iran’s immediate response to the speech was lukewarm, with an advisor to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President, saying that he welcomed President Obama’s message - but also wanted to see a comprehensive change in American policy.
“We welcome the wish of the president of the United States to put away past differences,” Ali Akbar Javanfekr, Mr Ahmadinejad’s press advisor was quoted as saying by the AFP news agency.
“But the way to do that is not by Iran forgetting the previous hostile and aggressive attitude of the United States. The American administration has to recognise its past mistakes and repair them as a way to put away the differences.” ‘

Yep - fists still clenched - video tape not working!

What on earth did PB0 hope to achieve with that crap?
