Even more troubling, by backing off on demands to suspend the enrichment program, the US has already weakened UN Security Council Chapter VII resolutions calling on Iran to do exactly that.
By contrast, the Bush administration – while also willing to talk with Iran and willing to allow it to have a civilian nuclear program – always insisted that enrichment must stop.
There is nothing wrong with talks, but here the US seems to be abandoning its long-held positions while Iran has not budged an inch. It is hardly how a superpower should be acting.
