This week an interesting story appeared in The Washington Post --
buried on page 16, of course, lest anyone think it was of the
slightest importance. It revealed that documentary proof has now
emerged confirming the fact that in the spring of 2003, the regime of
President George W. Bush -- flush with its illusory "victory" in Iraq
-- spurned a wide-ranging peace feeler from Iran that offered "full
cooperation" on every issue that the Bushists claim to be concerned
about in regard to Tehran: "nuclear programs, acceptance of Israel and
the termination of Iranian support for Palestinian militant groups."
In other words, everything that Bush says he wants from the Iranians
now, he could have had for the asking -- three years ago. What then
can we conclude from the rejection of this extraordinary initiative?
The answer is obvious: The Bush faction is not really interested in
curbing nuclear proliferation or defusing the powder keg of the
Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the regional and global terror that
....By the way, Saddam made a very similar offer just before the invasion,
as The New York Times reported in 2003: acquiescence to any U.S.
initiative on Israel-Palestine, full cooperation on WMD inspections,
even internationally supervised elections, which would have almost
certainly ousted him from power. Everything that Bush claimed he went
to war for in Iraq -- disarmament, regime change, reducing Middle East
tensions, democracy for the Iraqi people -- he could have had, for the
asking, without war....
