Nicholas Burns tells it like it is

Under Secretary of State Nicholas Burns said this in Brussels this week >>>>

"We have to speak truthfully about Iran. It is the major disruptive, negative force in the Middle East.
"Think about what we stand for in the Middle East: we want to see the Israelis and the Palestinians find peace, a two-state solution. We want to see Lebanon free and independent. We want to see Iraq free of terrorism.
"What does Iran stand for? Iran stands for disrupting states, disrupting peace and solving everything through the barrel of a gun."

Nice to know someone in the State Dept is telling it like it is.
Maybe there's hope?

I doubt it. He's not really the force for good in the State Dept.

I haven't been thrilled with some things he's done and said in the past either, but he didn't mince words in this statement.
