An agreement to limit Iran's nuclear development has been reached between Iran and the United States, plus five other nations that were so important to the negotiations that the New York Times named them all in the 33rd paragraph of its story on the deal. While President Barack Obama said the agreement is "not built on trust, it is built on verification," many representatives of Israel in the U.S. Congress have complained that the deal is terrible and will lead to Iranian domination of the Middle East, the destruction of Israel, and probably gun confiscation and abortions, because everything Obama does will lead to those. The agreement is the result of a
And doesn't tip!
We can't have another stupid war in the Middle East? Thanks, Obama.No, really, thanks. Having the adults in charge has been such a relief. One h*ll of a lame duck!
Don, next time, use Pig Latin to announce that you would invade and take their oil. I hear they're not too hep about pigs.
in general the experts with any real credibility think it IS a good deal. not perfect but certainly better than the status quo.
hence wingnut outrage.
Yes, but fetching as the idea of doing that is, I'd rather be Ian Wright than Rick.
i was reminded today that iran offered us a grand bargain back in 2003 (they'd stop meddling in iraq, etc. and do a nuclear deal if in return they could get sanctions lifted and come back to the table of civilized nations).
george and dick turned it down (obv) and the mullahs took their toys to the shia militias now haunting iraq, yemen, syria, etc.
it's the same 'grand bargain' that the wingnuts (brat cotton / miss lindsey, etc.) say we should have gone after this time.
and OT: who died and left cotton defense secretary?
That is... ummm... what the hell..?
Once again I am obliged to point out the Neville Chamberlain was the CONSERVATIVE Prime Minister of England and whose appeasement of Hitler was motivated by the admiration of many CONSERVATIVE English persons for the little pervert.
"While President Barack Obama said the agreement is “not built on trust, it is built on verification,”"
Sounds familiar. Oh, yeah; "Trust, but verify". Whatever filthy traitorous commie said that was obviously even worse than Obama.
Don't forget national health care ;-)
But, no one is thinking of the poor military–industrial complex, or military–industrial–congressional complex....... How will the next boondoogle be funded?
Sekrit Plan for Middle East Peace: Sell 'em all F-35s.
It took Chamberlain 'just' an hour and a half to make the nine miles between the airport and Downing Street so crowded were the streets with grateful people, and the (literally) tons of gift he received for his 'brave' act were but a token of gratitude from the UK...
Churchill, almost a nobody at the time (or a dissonating voice within the Conservative Party) did not vote against the Treaty because that would meant political suicide, so he abstained and said 'England has been offered a choice between war and shame. She has chosen shame, and will get war' (and was right as we all know).
Churchill: a drunken, vicious, racist, pro-fascist wingnut, who was, by a trick of history, ALSO the only guy who realised that Hitler was a threat to the British Empire, and thus amazingly turned out on the right side of history, that one time.
Question: Churchill was PM twice, yet people tend to forget his second term (roughly 1950/1955), why?Answer: Because in a world that no longer accepted the 'right' that 'civilizated' (read European) countries had to dominate other countries (whose civilizations were deemed as inferiors) he acted like he was still in the 30's. His first order (dealing with foreign issues) was to crush Malaysian Independence movement. His answer to the African colonies' demands for freedom was only better than the French's one and so on...An yet without this guy Hitler would have won the War in Europe!
If we have to talk about Adolph & Chamberlain, I prefer these guys...
