WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice escalated the anti-Iran views already prevalent in the Bush administration during her speech before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee Tuesday.

Rice accused the Iranian government of pursuing nuclear weapons and calling any dialogue with its leaders pointless, “We would be willing to meet with them but not while they continue to inch toward nuclear weapons under the cover of talks,” she told the group, a pro-Israel lobby known by its acronym, Aipac. “The real question isn’t why won’t the Bush administration talk to Iran. The real question is why won’t Iran talk to us.”

To apply pressure on the idea of ceasing possible talks with Iranian leaders, Rice used a sharp tone during her speech to make a point to Senator Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders who would like for the U.S. to engage Iran diplomatically.  For more details on this, click here and return back to comment.
