Significant, simply because it's not everyday a Western reporter even GETS an interview.

Iranian Leader Speaks To Mike Wallace

The interview's going to air on Sunday's "60 Minutes". I'm intrigued. But you've got to question his sincerity when you hear statements like this.

    The American government, sir, it is very clear to me they have to change their behavior and everything will be resolved. (George W. Bush) believes that his power emanates from his nuclear warhead arsenals. The time of the bomb is in the past, it's behind us. Today is the era of thoughts, dialogue and cultural exchanges.

This coming from the guy who said Israel needs to be wiped off the map. All baloney aside, though, Sunday's "60 Minutes" is now a must-see.

Iran is a weird country with a weird political culture. In some ways, they're actually fairly cosmopolitan and intellectual. In others, of course, they're completely Fascistic and intolerant. But they're not Saudi Arabia. Women can vote and hold office for instance, and they're one of a very few Islamic countries (Morocco is really the only other one) that hasn't expelled their Jewish community.

Look, I'm not saying Iran is a bastion of Western culture and Democratic thought or anything. But they aren't the Wahabis or anything. I mean, Cuba talks as much shit about us as Iran, and we don't really take it that seriously. Of course, Cuba isn't looking to get the bomb either.

Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe.

Forgive me if I don't take this at face value. Let's give it a decade or so before anyone rushes to pat the Iranians on the back.
