This is not a bad piece on today's talks between the U.S. and Iran on the security situation in Iraq. U.S. ambassador Ryan Crocker says the two countries' goals in Iraq are roughly speaking similar, which is probably diplomatspeak for "lots of problems remain." Nonetheless the talks took place and were focused, as advertised, on Iraq. Whether they lead to future talks in which the possibility of diplomatic relations (an end to childishness?) is raised is admittedly dubious.
