Saving Rouhani

Iran’s foreign minister has warned the United States that failure to agree a nuclear deal would likely herald the political demise of pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani, Iranian officials said, raising the stakes as the decade-old stand-off nears its end-game.

Oh my. The Iranian regime has threatened that noted “moderate” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani might lose his job unless the United States continues to cave in the nuclear negotiations with the Islamist regime.

Luckily for Rouhani, the crack foreign policy team of President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry seem determined to save Rouhani’s job. Not only are they jettisoning American principles and interests right and left to make this deal, but they are unafraid to chase the ghosts of 1930s appeasement by meeting with Iranian officials in Munich.
