I’m against negotiating with Iran.

Unlike Barack Obama, I do not support negotiating with Iran, with or without preconditions.

After all, Iran hasn’t threatened us, so what do we have to negotiate over? Any negotiation would have to be a matter of the U.S. making threats of violence against Iranians and Iran then negotiating its way out of them.

The only appropriate action with respect to Iran is for the U.S. government to cease any trade sanctions and henceforth mind its own business. Anything else that Obama or any other candidate offers is different only in degree, not in kind, from the aggressive policies of President Bush.
