Iran has been at war with the United States for the past 27 years, Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) said during a panel discussion at a GOPAC meeting in Washington, D.C. Rather than responding in a forceful manner, he said, U.S. policymakers had fallen back on "talks" that have proven to be ineffective throughout succeeding administrations. "Future historians will marvel at what has transpired between the U.S. and Iran," Ledeen said. "The U.S. has done nothing except talk." He compared negotiating with Iran to a scene in the 1964 James Bond movie, Goldfinger. "Bond is lying on a block of gold, and this laser beam comes up toward his reproductive organs, and Bond at a certain point looks up and says to the bad guy, "do you expect me to talk?'' And the bad guy says, "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.'' This is the problem with negotiating with Iranians. They don''t want to talk to us. They want to kill us."
