Former chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix said Monday the United States, Europe and the UN Security Council are ''humiliating'' Iran by demanding that it suspend uranium enrichment before any negotiations and then dictating its rewards.
'The first incentive, I think, is to sit down with them in a direct talk rather than saying to them 'you do this, thereafter we will sit down at a table and tell you what you get for it,''' Blix said. ''That's getting away from a humiliating neo-colonial attitude to a more normal (one).''

What a load of steaming fresh horse manure.
Sounds like he is still upset about having afternoon teas with Saadam brought to an end.
"I'll get you, Hans Brix!" Kim Jung Il
BTW, my boss in . . . my longer term posting over there . . . was/is on 'first name terms' with the top boss in your region.
Blix is a moron.
No mention of how Iran "humiliated" the United States during the 1979 Tehran hostage crisis, continued threats of violence and support for terrorists, meddling in the Iraq war, and general harassment of our ally Israel.
Typical one-sided U.N. loon.
So this was the guy whose words we were supposed to be hanging on regarding Iraq? Another "expert".
Idiot Blix sure wouldn't have like my response to Iran.
To bad we didn't have a real president back in 79.
Yea, I thought he was sleeping with the fishes!
Blix however is in very tight with the anti-american crowd and with the islamic fundamentalists.
Blix is humiliating to humanity.
I think you hit several nails squarely on the head.
BTW, PLEASE be extra cautious and safe in coming months . . . some of us, a lot of us, have grown rather fond of you.
And this is bad because?
Thousands of Iranians were gathered in pro Western demonstrations prior to the Iraq war. Then came the crack down.
And he is in denial that he's set to destroy his own liberty.
Not NEARLY enough. They want a non-military option? International humiliation of Iran all because of Ahmadinejad and maybe they'll remove him internally.
