There was a credible alternative to the Iran deal. Obama just chose to ignore it

President Obama has accused critics of the recently announced deal with Iran of having no credible alternative. According to Obama, it was this deal or no deal. And then, alleges the president, the options are either acquiescence or war. But this is a false choice, set up by the Obama administration to make its bad deal look like the best we ever could have hoped for. Yet, the truth is that the alternative to this deal was not no deal, it was a better deal, one that actually met the international community’s objectives in undertaking negotiations in the first place.

    A credible alternative would start with hanging Obama for treason and then nuking every Islamic state out of existence. As Ripley said in Aliens, its the only way to be sure…

    Obama won’t be moved when he thinks he sees his his lifelong goal in reach…..

    He chose to ignore the Green Revolution – the credible, pro-western alternative to the Mullahs – as well. I detect a pattern.

      This one perhaps? What a coincidence both his father and step father were Shia.
