    Iran knows all the best tricks and also knows a mark when it sees one.
    John Kerry, you’ve been had.

    greyolddave, who said anything about going to war??? But why does Obama, who refuses to negotiate with “evil” Republicans, give in to Iran- which celebrated all the concessions they got out of a weak America.

    And do you think the world would be a better place with extremist Muslims holding nuclear weapons?

    Hate it when something can be accomplished without war. Quite an indictment of previous administrations….

    Not if you are Iran… Or, John Kerry and Barack Obama play 3 card montie with the Ayatollahs…

    I’d like to know what outcome you all would have preferred. War?

    I’m in no way advocating war, but I seem to remember someone from that part of the world, at one time or another, saying something like it’s ok to negotiate when you’re weak, but when you’re strong enough kick their ass. Just a paraphrase of course. Guess what happens next!

    @greyolddave

    you never win a war by delaying a war. And do you think Iran IS NOT going to use or have a proxy use a bomb if they get it??

    I propose a new standard: Unless you or a direct relative are enlisted in a branch of the armed services that would end up in the line of fire, you don’t get to advocate for “pre-emptive war”. And if you’re that desperate to see it happen… enlist!

    Amen, Lisa!
    Also at www.newsday.com/opinion is an excellent cartoon by Jimmy Margulies….Netanyahu and a Saudi Emir holding a sign at Obama’s Oval Office…“Iran Nuke Deal is a SELLOUT”….
    And at Politico.com Charles Krauthammer’s article:
    “Worst Since Munich”…..
    IMO Obama has spent 5 years legitimizing terrorists; first the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and worldwide…..now the Capitol of World Terrorism, Iran, has been legitimized and will (this is incredible!) be given sanctioned-withheld $4 billion in oil revenues and the US Treasury is committed to supply American cash up to $7 billion!
    IMO this should be impeachable.

    " I believe it is peace in our time" Neville Chamberlain, Sept. 30th 1938.
    We all know how well that went.

    Just a minor note for DT and the others, the Saudis have provided FAR MORE FUNDING to TERRORISTS, than Iran. the Wahabi subset of Sunni is far more restrictive, and “nutso”, than Shia in Iran… Granted, I’d want no part of living in a sectarian state, be it Islamic, Christian, or well, Israel, but it’s interesting how many SECULAR states we’ve overthrown in the Middle East, making things go downhill.


    Hmm, that does seem to fit the goals of Americans predicting “the rapture”. So by all means, let’s encourage more wars!!

    “Barack Obama has used Iran to push the millions of Americans losing access to healthcare off the front page.”

    Almost, but not quite, as brilliant as his hiring of the Sandy Hook shooter so he could bring up his “I want to take away all your guns” traveling medicine show.
    He’s so smart that way.
    I’m pretty sure that the cyclone that hit the Philippines was his idea, as well. You’ll notice that more Christians died than Muslims, and we all know that’s his goal.

    Obama is the most anti-Israel president in history.
    He spent a year on Iran and the final “deal” was the exact same demands Iran made on Day One.
    -
    He has betrayed America’s long friendship with the Jews (a Jewish banker saved the American Revolution) and has demanded Israel give up rights to land and rights to defend itself while giving away the store to Islamic Arabs intending on wiping out Jewish Israel.
    -
    When Jesus (born a Jew) Returns, his first Judgment will be the nations who mistreated His Jewish Brethren. I had always hoped the USA would not be counted among them, but the last 5 years record of our government versus Israel makes it a sure thing for God’s punishment.

    @lonecat

    The sanctions we had on Iran were working. That’s why they wanted them loosened. Giving them what they wanted and really getting nothing in return (they put a six-month freeze on their nuke program, but don’t have to dismantle a single centrifuge) does nothing to discourage them from pushing forward when the six months are over. When that happens, what do we do then? Israel has already stated that they will not allow Iran to get the bomb. This agreement makes war a certainty, not merely an unfortunate probability.
