Oh....*Now* They're Ready

Now Iran says they're ready for serious talks:

Iran is prepared as of Aug. 23 to enter serious negotiations" with the countries that proposed the package, state-run television quoted Larijani as telling the envoys.

Iranian officials close to the meeting said Iran offered a "new formula" to resolve the dispute as part of its formal response to the incentive package. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the information.

What were we doing before? Playing patty-cake? Apparently the UNSC isn't as unversally respected as we all thought.
