Obama, if you screw this one up, history will never forgive you. Think about that. You will never be forgiven by history. You’re the president of the United States of America. Swallow your pride.

By the way, this is what the president of Turkey is up to today. I advise him also to think about how history will remember him.
With Iran and Turkey determined to boost their political and economic ties, more than 100 Turkish businessmen have accompanied the president on a visit to Iran that began Sunday evening and is scheduled to last until Wednesday. Turkey aims to increase its trade with Iran from $10 billion to $30 billion, Gül said without giving a timeframe.
The Turkish president told a joint press conference Monday with his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that the two countries held detailed discussions on key issues of mutual interest and that important decisions have been made, Agence France-Presse reported.
“We have decided to give orders to our respective parties to remove all obstacles” identified in the talks as hindering cooperation between Turkey and Iran, Gül said without elaborating. The president is heading a delegation of business leaders and ministers, including Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, on the four-day official visit.
Gül also urged governments in the Middle East to listen to the demands of their people, saying he hoped transformation processes would have an honorable and happy ending for all nations in the region, the Anatolia news agency reported.
