Gerecht: let’s pretend to talk to Iran, then bomb.

In this morning’s New York Times, Reuel Marc Gerecht, a fellow at the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute, advocates talking to the Iranian regime, but only as a way of establishing a pretext for American military action:

The best reason to offer to begin talks with Tehran is that the regime will almost certainly refuse any offer to normalize relations. <…>

If the mullahs don’t want to negotiate, fine: making the offer is something that must be checked off before the next president could unleash the Air Force and the Navy

1. That's completely backwards. Bomb first, then talk.

2. So we send them a list of demands a mile long 
 and we bomb them if they don't comply? How so like a Neocon.

"We think of laws as lines we need to move now and then so we don't look like we are crossing them."

3. What Else is New?
 That's been US policy for the last century or more.
