As long as he’ll be the one to say, ‘The only president to secure an agreement with Iran, period.’ No matter whatever else follows is irrelevant.
It’s an ugly habit.
Goldberg: So why do you think you can’t convince the majority of Israelis, or the majority of the organized Jewish community, of this? “I fear that what could happen is if Congress were to overturn it, our friends Israel could actually wind up being more isolated and more blamed”, he said.
That Congress didn’t block the renewal of this agreement will comes a relief to the Obama administration, which seeks to maintain its bilateral relationship with China on good footing. Friendship with Iran would also help India to be a factor in Afghanistan where a potentially crucial development is being fashioned. “Now, Iran has signed on to a sufficiently verifiable and enforceable deal that cuts off all paths to a bomb and has its entire nuclear supply chain closely monitored for years to come”. For decades, many Americans – including the hawks slamming the Iran deal – have called on the Saudis and other Arab allies to use their vast oil revenue to take on responsibility for their own security and a real leadership role in the neighborhood. American Republicans have objected to the deal as not tough enough and the U.S. Congress has until September 17 to accept or reject the agreement.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry walks to a meeting with Philippines’s Foreign Minister Albert del Rosario at the Putra World Trade Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Thursday August 6, 2015. Here I interjected: “Wipe it off the map”. You don’t suppose maybe the untrustworthy one in that scenario is, oh, I don’t know, maybe… I haven’t seen anything that says to me-they’ve got 80,000 rockets in Hezbollah pointed at Israel, and any number of choices could have been made. Obama’s solution? To let Iran have legitimate nuclear bombs in a few years, with the intercontinental ballistic missiles to deliver them to the U.S. – or perhaps from America’s soft underbelly, South America, where Iran has been acquiring uranium and establishing bases for years. Businesses worldwide want to get into Iran, home to some 80… Of course Iran will never come clean about the possible military dimensions of the nuclear program. We should be seeking ways to screw the Ayatollah, not fretting about it. Then again, as the photo above might remind you, it’s always been Kerry’s reflex to look out for the interests of America’s enemies at our expense.
Kerry “doesn’t know” if Iran is serious about eliminating Israel and that considering that issue is “a waste of time”. Because, well, they haven’t used them yet. It can create havoc on the northern border and attempt to murder a bunch of Israelis. The goal is a nuclear weapons ban treaty to outlaw these weapons in the same way that chemical and biological weapons are banned.
And no one argues that the Iranians are idiots who lack the capacity for strategic thinking.
And it reflects a process of which we are proud. Would Israel be similarly antagonistic towards the Jordanians becoming a threshold nuclear state, or the Danes or the Bolivians-or even Saudi Arabia?
He added that Iran’s overseas minister, Javad Zarif, and President Hassan Rouhani, can be in “critical hassle” at residence if the deal falls by means of.
Moniz, in a brief telephone interview with The Record arranged by the White House, said defeat of the deal by Congress would leave the United States worse off because it can not count on countries that agreed to enforce economic sanctions on Iran to continue doing so. The problem isn’t talking.
He warned that Putin and his top brass had not “gone to the school of nuclear deterrence” and did not understand the “extraordinarily unsafe game” they were playing.
