Negotiations for an interim arrangement over Irans nuclear weapons program finally succeeded this past weekend, as Security Council foreign ministers (plus Germany) flew to Geneva to meet their Iranian counterpart. After raising expectations of a deal by first convening on November 8-10, it would have been beyond humiliating to gather again without result. So agreement was struck despite solemn incantations earlier that no deal is better than a bad deal.
This interim agreement is badly skewed from Americas perspective. Iran retains its full capacity to enrich uranium, thus abandoning a decade of Western insistence and Security Council resolutions that Iran stop all uranium-enrichment activities. Allowing Iran to continue enriching, and despite modest (indeed, utterly inadequate) measures to prevent it from increasing its enriched-uranium stockpiles and its overall nuclear infrastructure, lays the predicate for Iran fully enjoying its right to enrichment in any final agreement. Indeed, the interim agreement itself acknowledges that a comprehensive solution will involve a mutually defined enrichment program. This is not, as the Obama administration leaked before the deal became public, a compromise on Irans claimed right to enrichment. This is abject surrender by the United States.
In exchange for superficial concessions, Iran achieved three critical breakthroughs. First, it bought time to continue all aspects of its nuclear-weapons program the agreement does not cover (centrifuge manufacturing and testing; weaponization research and fabrication; and its entire ballistic missile program). Indeed, given that the interim agreement contemplates periodic renewals, Iran may have gained all of the time it needs to achieve weaponization not of simply a handful of nuclear weapons, but of dozens or more.

Let’s see. John Bolton, john f’n heinz kerry. John Bolton, john f’n heinz kerry. I’ll take John Bolton for $1,000 Alex. In case you forgot, John Bolton and Clarence Thomas were college roomies. No wonder Bolton is such a loose cannon huh?
It disgraceful what has become of the greatest country on the planet. We’re all metrosexual fairies now. I knew this was going to happen once males living here developed a fondness for wearing pink.
America must be weak so that Obama can catch a break from that effing website.
America got concessions from Iran, period.
Pray America is Waking
The unconstitutionally elected admitted foreign born Islamic Kenyan has three agendas:
1. Destroy the US from within
2. Empower and spread radical Islam
3. Play golf.
This deal with Iran is just more of #2.
Am I right or what? EVERYTHING this guy does since day one has been based on those three agendas. I dare any liberal to show me otherwise. How many more examples do we need before somebody gets the nuts to start impeachment proceedings on this enemy of America who ISN’T EVEN SUPPOSE TO BE IN OFFICE IN THE FIRST PLACE!
“If you like your nuclear weapons program, you can keep your nuclear weapons program” - unfortunately, that’s one promise that Obama will keep.
But the Islamics on the other side won't keep promises. They lie because it is in their religion to lie to the Infidel. That gains them virgins in heaven.
This is all blatantly spelled out in the Bible. It doesn't end well for Israel's enemies, but it does appear that Israel is going to have their chain yanked pretty hard at some point. The only question is the timing of the events.
follows the plan for America to be week so the Anti-Christ can bring the one world government. Always knew Democrats would hand the keys to America over.
Domestic policy of this president has been nothing short of catastrophic, and his idea of compensating is turning foreign policy and national security into a catastrophe as well. He’ll go down in history as the most destructive president in history, but such history will likely have to be recorded on stone walls with burnt sticks.
Keep those three in mind, and everything The Won does makes perfect sense.
No better said weak because 0bummer wants us to be weak. Caliphate yes constitution no.
Historic. Game LOSER. Bye, bye, Ms. American Pie....!
I hereby apologize to Israel, on behalf of all REAL Americans. Many Americans suspect President Muhummad Al-Obama is a Kenyan, but few know Valerie Jarret, who secretly negotiated this deal, is Iranian. PERSIAN. Check Wikipedia or Google it.
