Obama says Iran missile tests show need for talks

Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama said that today's missile tests by Iran show the need for 'direct talks' with the mad mullahs and threats of economic sanctions. Obama continues to favor offering Iran the same incentives package that Iran has rejected several times - most recently on Friday.
"At this point, the report is unclear, it's still early," Obama said on "The Early Show" on CBS. "What this underscores is the need for ... a clear policy that is putting the burden on Iran to change behavior. And frankly, we just have not been able to do that the last several years, partly because we're not engaged in direct diplomacy."


Obama, while calling Iran a threat, criticized the Bush administration for using bellicose language against the Iranian government while increasing exports to the country.


"It's that kind of mixed signal that has led to the kind of situation that we're in right now," Obama said on ABC's "Good Morning America."
Republican candidate John Sidney McCain said that the tests show the need for an effective missile defense and that they demonstrate the danger that Iran poses to its neighbors, especially Israel.
"Working with our European and regional allies is the best way to meet the threat posed by Iran, not unilateral concessions that undermine multilateral diplomacy," McCain said in a statement.


McCain said Iran's missile tests "demonstrate again the dangers it poses to its neighbors and to the wider region, especially Israel."

"Ballistic missile testing coupled with Iran's continued refusal to cease its nuclear activities should unite the international community in efforts to counter Iran's dangerous ambitions," McCain said.
Will Iran get on the 'change and hope' bandwagon? Don't bet on it.

Nope. If you were Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, would you be impressed by what's coming out of Israel and America? Not with the vacuousness of the Martin Van Crevelds and Barack Hussein Obamas who don't really get it!

Yes, Iran could be sending missiles into America and Obama would be singing the same tune, "Let us talk with the terrorists, maybe they are right?". It is just so crazy that America has come to this level of weakness and immaturity.

Iran is a threat which must be dealt with. It will not go away with nice talk and ideas of "hope" and "change". These words are just hot air and will not change the course of the evil ones in Iran.

I support the upcoming attack on Iran with all my being... May it be speedy and completely effective at preventing them from obtaining the nuclear material for a weapon.

Time to start talking with iran via the usage of a very large stick

Iran stands with it's weapons at the ready to wipe israel off the face of the earth, and dares anyone to attempt to stop them..

what they are hoping for is the world will "give up" it's jews in order to have peace with Iran et al...

we have seen this before...

Israel should not wait for their enemies to rearm and should not seek a "fair" fight...

israel should at post haste, attack and destroy the menace we call Iran. Destroying the Mullahs, their oil exporting ability, their nukes, their gasoline refineries, their ability to do anything that requires computers or electricity

i'd rather be alive and seek forgiveness than be dead and be wrong

You all keep thinking about big toys, like missiles.

Think little toys, like briefcases and backpacks. And then prove the weapon's origin. Remember the movie?

Welcome to their world.
