Gullible Obama? -- Screwed Israel -- Big danger for us
Obama's idea of statesmanship is to avoid the work of compromise and either give everything away, or refuse to negotiate. This weekend, Obama choose the latter.
Mr Obama has been gathering funds for the "Democratic" Party, rather than do the job he was elected to do. He just now left Seattle, after tying up three floors of the Westin Hotel and traffic.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry Gave Iran everything it wanted and a $7 billion baksheesh. But the self-obsessed and distracted American administration has ignored 35 years of history with Iran. Obama and Kerry naively seem to believe Iran can be trusted.
The Iranian government hates us.
It's 1938 all over again, By Melanie Phillips
"When Hassan Rouhani was elected President of Iran, western leaders declared, in the teeth of stark evidence to the contrary, that this man was a reformer. So they rushed to do a deal with him over Iran's nuclear program, considered by the west to be a threat to the free world.
"But Rouhani does not run Iran. The man who actually calls the shots — the only man who matters — is Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. Earlier this week, Khamenei said the Jews of Israel, 'cannot be called humans, they are like animals, some of them,' and that Israel was, 'the rabid dog of the region'.
"What do you do with rabid dogs? That's right: you put them down. That's what Khamanei intends to do to the Jews of Israel. That's why he says Israel is 'doomed to collapse' and why his regime has repeatedly declared it will wipe Israel 'off the page of history'. Dehumanizing the Jews: ring any bells? Know what happened next? But it's not just the Jews who are in Iran's sights. It's the west, upon which it has been waging a self-declared war since the Islamic revolution of 1979.
"'Death to America! Death to Israel!'" chanted the crowd in response. Yup, that's the agenda. Always has been. And they mean it."
Iran made "concessions." Iran will stop enriching uranium beyond 5 percent; it will install no additional centrifuges; it will convert the 100 pounds or so of 20 percent–enriched uranium which quickly can be converted to weapons-grade uranium to something harder to convert to weapons-grade uranium.
Iran has not agreed to dismantle any of the thousands of centrifuges it has installed and continues to operate; to send any of its 20 percent–enriched uranium out of the country; to close the nuclear facilities which will soon provide it with plutonium with which to make nuclear weapons; to stop its testing of long-range missiles; or to cease its support of terrorist activities by Hezbollah and others.
I don't think there is any way to reverse this. The only hope we have is if Israel is very skillful in international diplomacy, and that ShinBet is better than anyone expects. Israel is a developed country that values human life and women's rights. This is in stark contrast to Iran, which is still run the 14th century way by imams and mullahim -- where the micromanaging, religious government took issue with the mullet and banned it..
They're weird and dangerous, and the Obama Administration is playing patty cake with them. Its an obvious diversion from the ObamaCare disaster. Obama's showing very poor judgment.
A like-minded view.
