Skip to comments.The Iran Nuclear Deal From Hell, and UN Ambassador Samantha Power in the Age of Genocide
Posted on 07/20/2015 6:08:06 AM PDT by Rummyfan
Thirteen years ago, Samantha Power made a name for herself with her Pulitzer prize-winning book, A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide. In this book, she explored the history of Americas reluctance to intervene to stop or prevent genocides. Prescribing American intervention as justified on grounds both moral and in service of enlightened self-interest, Power asked how something so clear in retrospect as the need to stop genocide could become so muddled at the time by rationalization, institutional constraints, and a lack of imagination.
It appears that on Monday morning, Power herself is going to demonstrate exactly how such muddling takes place.
Power is now President Obamas ambassador to the United Nations. On Monday morning, the UN Security Council is scheduled to vote on a resolution endorsing the Iran nuclear deal announced July 14 in Vienna, and adopting the terms of this deal, including the lifting of UN sanctions on Iran, sunset clauses for the main restrictions on Irans nuclear activities, and so forth. This deal, a byzantine tome officially titled the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is a gift to Irans terror-sponsoring tyranny, crammed with concessions offered up by Secretary of State John Kerry and lead negotiator Under Secretary Wendy Sherman, in their desperate quest to satisfy President Obamas desire for an agreement with Tehran. Columnist Charles Krauthammer sums up some of the worst of it in his latest column: Worse than we could have imagined. Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday warned yet again that this agreement paves Irans way to arm itself with nuclear weapons within a decade, if Iran decides to honor the agreement, and before then if it decides to violate it, as it usually does.

Update: The UN Security Council has unanimously approved the deal.
“Update: The UN Security Council has unanimously approved the deal.”
Any Senator or Congressman that approves of this needs to be tarred, feathered and thrown out of this country.
Wow. What is the point of having a Congress if the POTUS acts like this? Meanwhile, we have the world going hysterical over two wacko birds (Trump & McCain) squabbling.
Put the little mustache on Samantha Power and you have Hitler’s twin
