    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?

    So Iran is playing poker with their cards—a Royal Flush—face up, and Obama is betting the pot limit against them? Great analogy, but of what, I’m not sure.

    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?

    @ConserveGov

    Based on “what” ?
    Or, do you believe everything that is propagandized into you ?
    Persia is a poor country, straddled with Islam, fear and ignorance , but, NOT to be trusted either..
    Our foreign policy must be peace, NOT war;understanding, NOT ignorance…

    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!

    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.

    @Doctor Warbucks

    So!

    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!!
