Are they related?

It appears the bush Administration is softening its stance on Iran and their nuclear program.

Meanwhile the next-in-lines talk about upping our program as a solution to our energy woes. Makes me wonder if in spite of McCain's efforts to distance himself from bush, and Obama's focus on change, if they're all really just part of the same tired old machine... over and over again.

Anyway who are we to talk trash about Iran's pursuits?

We are, of course, the only nation ever to drop a nuke on another.

and meanwhile...

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) -- The Bellingham City Council has voted
unanimously to oppose any U.S. military intervention in Iran. The
resolution is being touted by peace activists as the first by any
municipality in Washington state. It states that the city of about
75,000 wants to avoid a conflict similar to the Iraq war, the loss
of more U.S. troops and civilians and billions of dollars in
war-related costs to local jurisdictions. Before the vote (Monday
night), council member Gene Knutson said, "There's nothing weak
about being against war. There's nothing weak about being for
peace." In October 2006 the Bellingham City Council voted 6 to 1
to seek immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
