The Iran Treaty Sideshow

No one in the West, with the exception of Obama, is hailing the Iran Nuclear Treaty as a piece of brilliant diplomacy or even as a bit of realpolitik; it is a crappy deal with limited inspections and a set of pious promises which, even now, hardline Iranians are indicating they will not keep. Of course it is possible that the US Congress will have the wit to defeat the treaty and Obama’s veto of that defeat but that will take an act of statesmanship which, I suspect, is well beyond the reach of the low information legislators America insists upon electing. A measure of just how bad this treaty is can be had by noting that Russia and China both fully support it.

    “Of course it is possible that the US Congress will have the wit to defeat the treaty and Obama’s veto…”

    So it’s up to Limp Boehner to save the day. Oh swell.

      Even if Obama is able to sustain a veto, it will still reflect poorly on him and the Democrats for thwarting the will of the people.

    The inspections are a joke, requiring a 14 day notice and the Iranians can still refuse to allow the inspection – forcing the request before an arbitration board which the Iranians sit on.

    Transparency was apparently based on the Obama administration.

    As for the “snapback” that will restore sanctions in 65 days if Iran violates the agreement…

    Who has the most at stake to insure the deal succeeds? Who’s going to take a huge political hit, now and forever, if the Iranians are found to be in violation? Who’s going to make damn sure no one looks at the Iranians too closely for the next few years?

    Omama. ValJar. Kerry. – and every GOP congresscritter.
