    It’s time to stop considering Netanyahu our President, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense, and realize Israel has long been the aggressor, with our help. I don’t like Iran any better, and we don’t need to see nuclear weapons proliferation, but we never stopped Israel, even when they were helping South Africa develop nuclear weapons.


    Deals that might give hope for peace are better than all the ones we’ve signed onto before that have just led to more wars. Which, how about a deal where Netanyahu listens to some of his own people, and stops expanding “settlements”, and saber rattlling?

    I love the smell of arrogance in the morning. The arrogance of overly simplistic cartoonists at least.

    Israel has about 300 nukes. Iran has zero. So what?

    Yes, Israel has 300 nukes*

    This cartoon is absolutely correct. Iran (unable to engage in any international commerce and desperate) agreed to let an army of inspectors in to make sure most centrifuges are irreversibly destroyed, the 20% enriched uranium is irreversibly diluted to less than 3%, the heavy water facilities are all irreversibly destroyed, and all to get back just $4 billion of their own money that the US grabbed, and only AFTER the inspectors report that most of the Iranian nuclear facilities are irreversibly destroyed..


    Iran really snookered the US on this one.

    So Michael,
    If Iran is so lost, so ready to give up, why did they not just agree to abandon all nuclear activity. They have enough oil for energy for the foreseeable future in their country, they have no need for nuclear power. If they had completely given up all nuclear activity they could get a COMPLETE lifting of the sanctions instead of a partial. Then why not do it?????

    Of what use is a nuclear weapon to Iran? They may well want one as a deterrent to invasion. A bomb could be used on a force massing to invade, for instance. However, the results for Iran could be even worse, from contamination of their own territory. They would have to be pretty desperate to use one in that situation. However, if I were in their shoes, with Russians and Americans invading countries right on their borders, messing around in their own internal politics, I’d be worried about being invaded.
    The Iranians can’t use one on Israel, unless to pull Israel down as they themselves are immolated.
    The Iranians can’t sell one to jihadists, as they have to know that the sale would likely be tracked. What if the sale were not tracked? Too many people involved for that to be likely. In any case, the source of an exploded bomb will be determined through science and intelligence sources. Then the source of the bomb becomes a target. I don’t think the price paid for a bomb could be high enough to cover the blowback.
    I conclude that the Iranians want one to deter invasion.

    This cartoon is missing something: The Republican cover band whose only song is “Bomb-bomb-bomb, bomb-bomb Iran”, which they play at every opportunity.

    @Archimedes

    Are you really that short sighted, truly, truly that short sited. Nuclear power is about 1/15th the cost of coal and 1/25 the cost of oil after the power plant has been built.

    Never mind environmental benifits

    never mind that oil is worth a @$^% ton of money, What you are recommending is the rough equivalent of saying to give up electricity and heat the house with a car engine.’

    It truly amazes me that there are people whom not only don’t wish to oppose shortsightedness by actively wish to enforce it on others.

    I would not know the best plans they have I am but a good little infidel. To them I am nothing but convert or die.
