Empowering the mullahs?

From the recent article by Amir Taheri:

Iranian regime reformers and hardliners are no different. The current so-called reformers are those who seized the US embassy in 1979 and helped massacre the dissidents in the 1980s and killed foreign based ex-government officials such as Prime Minister Shapur Bakhtiar and other Kurdish leaders. No elements of this inhumane regime can be trusted and voting in their sham elections only prolong the regime's life. And the US Secretary of State Condi Rice is wrong to believe that promoting dialogue with this evil regime can bring peace to the region.

It's all down to trust. Trust has to be earned. Those dregs of humanity have a long way to go to earn anyones trust. Games will be played for appearances but no way are they going to be trusted. These games/maneuvers can be played out while traps are set to force issues to a point of no return. Evil, inhuman wretches will get caught in those traps in the end. It may take more than faith but we must prevail over evil.

Failing all else, Iran could be in for a rumble.

Perhaps dialogue is not futile if you publish the dialogue and compare it to action, both past and present.
