    Negotiation instead of bombs, negotiation instead of under-compensated American troops in harm’s way — got to be something wrong with THAT approach, Mr. Elephant!

    Ultimately, Obama’s administration will be only a footnote in the history of the growing power of the socialist and sectarian conquest of the world that culminated in the last Great Global War. With the possibility of the lack of a technological society after the war, it might not even be remembered at all, except by the more extreme members of the opposing party, who will be blaming Obama much the way some are still blaming Bush. Not for any real reason, but because it just feels right.

    Your comment doesn’t make much sense unless you got a tense wrong. Future Tense needed, maybe?

    The real story is that the US has incredible economic power. China is desperate for Iranian oil, but was told the US will sanction any nation that does NOT sanction Iran, so China can’t afford to buy Iranian oil or sell Iran any Chinese products, costing them a lot, but less than they’d lose by not complying. So Iran was desperate. No way to do business, all their money (hundreds of billions for international trade) in banks outside Iran frozen (the US controls the interbank transfer network).


    The US agreed to somewhat defrost a whopping $7 billion in Iranian assets, assets that rightfully belong to Iran. In exchange, Iran will allow an army of very intrusive inspectors from the UN to make sure they destroy most of their centrifuges and their heavy water research lab, and make all their 20% enriched uranium irreversibly unusable. Iran must have been absolutely desperate to agree to such a deal, but they did agree.


    And Israel and Saudi are furious, because they wanted the US Marines in Iran. Like yesterday.

    Let me get this straight (assuming that is possible): you think socialism and sectarianism together culminated in WWII? Or are you talking about some alternate history? Because in the real world, fascism led to WWII, not socialism.

    Historic? More like a new footnote to history…

    Competence is not getting an agreement to a six month delay in the Iranian nuclear program with no guarrentees that they will do anything while giving up sanctions against them. This agreement is as incompetent as the one Obama did several years ago with Russia to pull a ballistic missile shield out of Poland getting nothing in return but a promise from Russia (which Putin ignored) to negotiate on some “stuff” later on.

    People also forget that Josef Stalin was once “Our Man in Moscow”, “Uncle Joe”. And that the Soviets were the ones to storm Berlin.
    That sort of ignorance happens when we throw away history books and believe all the war movies that show us that America Saved The World. You’d think the war ended on Omaha Beach.

    Motive, some of us have been discussing a problem with the definitions of terms. Our conclusions are that what you mean when you use these terms such as socialism, fascism, etc,. is different depending on how strong your emotional/political orientation is. Therefore, if we have not commonly accepted meanings for such words with others posting here, we really have little to no basis for meaningful discussion. Perhaps you, as a psychologist, have some suggestions on where to go from this point?

    Y’know, I seem to remember Obama said he would push
    negotiatation rather than beligerance when he was running
    for his first term.

    We (Carter) was also responsible for the Ayatollahs and they are far worse than the Shah was. It also seems that Progressives haven’t learned anything from that experiance. Obama let Egypt likewise collapse into a civil war and military dictatorship that may still result in a repressive theocracy yet.
    It is better to deal with the dictator you know than have one show up that you don’t know about because the new dictator is usually much worse than the current one.

    Just a footnote: George W Bush campaigned promising to be the “Peace President”, that promise went well.

    Bush neglected everything for 8 years, so give him credit where it’s due! http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/21/opinion/how-bush-let-iran-go-nuclear.html

    Carter managed the Hostage Crisis, a bad situation, without a war, and the hostages came home without maiming, our killing our troupes in an unnecessary war.
