    talks between our countries or no talks?

    Bluster or not, the Iranian leadership is divided and there are people who are more than happy to use such an action to stab the new president from behind, the Revolutionary Guard is busting his balls over this every day.

    You say if they pulled back over this that they aren't serious, they can say EXACTLY the same thing about us, that we can't be trusted to make good-faith agreements because we talk out of both sides of our faces, we're saying "let's talk" and "let's bash Iran harder" at the same time...

      If it appears that they have the potential to bear fruit. We have an agreement with Iran. One of the points is not that Iran gets to queer the deal because one House of the U.S. Congress passes legislation that it does not like.  It most certainly does not say that we aren't serious if the Senate, which has no authority to unilaterally make foreign policy decisions, passes a bill. It would say that we are not serious if both Houses pass it and Obama signs it, but that does not appear to be in the cards.

        the point is to continue the process and not antagonize the people we're supposed to be negotiating with, it is NOT necessary and it's antagonizing people for no purpose.
