Bush's new challenge: To Talk or Not to Talk

It seems that Mr Bush and Mr Blair are getting into a bit of conflict regarding Iran. Apparently, Blair has urged open talks with Iran and Syria regarding Iraq! _(Nov 13)_. On the one hand, BBC reports that Bush maintains tough line on Iran_(Nov 13)_. But, according to Reuter, US leaves door open to talks with Iran about Iraq._(Nov13)_
So, what do Iran and Syria want? Iran wants a wholesale transformation of is relationship with the United States; simply put, a respectful relationship. After all, the tyrany of Iranian regime is not much worse than the other ones (e.g Russia and China) that US overlooks or supports (e.g. Pakistan and Israel).
