    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.

    @BrassOrchid

    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.

    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.

    @ David

    “What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action (the title of the Iran-powers deal),…"

    I just did an A/B comparison of Iran’s version of the “Joint Plan of Action” and the White House’s. I also looked at versions by The Guardian, European External Action Service, and the NY Times. Unless at least four organizations are in a conspiracy, the White house version has some rewording in it. I am not surprised by this. I gave up on whitehouse.gov as a source of accurate information a long time ago.

    ^Actually, Marx is Marxism, not actual “communism’” (small “c”) Stalin was neither, actually.

    Will be remembered. The last of the Great Global Wars will be the next one. Obama may be blamed for his part in today’s global politics. Many still blame Bush for things that are clearly the responsibility of others or of the current administration. Learn to hate. Hate is the one thing guaranteed to survive.

    @motivemagus

    Socialism and Sectarianism lead to the next war, which is probably the last of the great global wars. And my grasp of reality and history may not be flawless, but I was always fairly certain that it was the National Socialist Party, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, that caused the commencement of WWII, and not the National Fascist Party, under the leadership of Benito Mussolini, though they were allied. Perhaps I need to adjust the settings on my Way-back Machine, or at least conform to the politically correct amnesia that denies socialism as a political force for destruction in our times.

    “lol. Rightists can’t handle the fact that the mixed race President is actually proving his competence. Again.”
    I’m pretty sure that they would welcome that. Competence by any political figure would be a breath of fresh air in this mine where all the canaries who sang out against the evils of Bush that still exist in the present administration have oddly gone silent.

    Hence the clever ridicule found in the cartoon. The poor in spirit are ever with us.
