Shocking! Said no one, ever.
Secretary of State John Kerry met in Geneva Monday with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif amid reports that a deal was taking shape that might allow Tehran to build nuclear weapons in its final years.
Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, meanwhile, met separately with Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s nuclear program, on technical details before joining the broader talks.
The Associated Press reported that a potential deal is taking shape in the talks, which began Friday, that would phase out restrictions on Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in the final years — potentially allowing it to build a nuclear weapon more quickly than the one-year timeframe U.S. officials were using as the benchmark for their negotiating strategy. The timeframe of the deal is under negotiation…
There’s widespread mistrust of the administration’s negotiating strategy in Congress, and supporters of new sanctions say they will move forward with legislation if there’s no progress in the talks by March 24.
Any deal that would open the door to a nuclear-armed Iran is likely to get shot down by U.S. lawmakers.
Uh, only if Obama calls it a treaty. What will the Keystone Kops in the Senate do if he calls it something else?
This WaPo editorial is interesting.
If Obama and Kerry jam this thing through, as they seem to be doing, the result will be a nuclear war in the Middle East and perhaps elsewhere (the Nonproliferation Treaty would be generally understood to be null and void). Aside from the existential threat to Israel, the subsequent oil shock will devastate the global economy. This would be a good time for any sane Democrats and Republicans to join together and block Obama’s illegal rush to national and global suicide. God help us.
Is Obama so stupid that he thinks this would be his proudest accomplishment for his damn legacy?
“Stupid” isn’t the word. Obama is acting under some terrible dysfunctional compulsion driven by a deep anger. This is the ironic affliction of humanity that has been so successful at taming nature as it becomes less able to tame or comprehend its own darkness.
Yes, because different paradigm. Obama sees ‘his’ history as being written by ‘Islamic’ scholars not Western historians. Every Iranian mullah will write paens to Obama’s greatest achievement.
They don’t call him Broken Insane Owebama for nothing. 😀
Its obvious that BO and his whole cabinet hate America and the American people and seek to destroy this nation as a superpower. Rudy is correct and should not apologize for anything. Maybe BO thinks he can pass himself off as the Mahdi?
