What the Syrian Weapons Charade Says About the Iran Deal

The Wall Street Journal has an eye-opening expose today about how Syria failed to comply with its obligations under the agreement with the United States to get rid of all of its chemical weapons. Reporters David Entous and Naftali Bendavid write, “One year after the West celebrated the removal of Syria’s arsenal as a foreign-policy success, U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that the regime didn’t give up all of the chemical weapons it was supposed to.” Indeed, Bashar Assad continues to drop chemical weapons, specifically chlorine bombs.

    And guess what the Iranians have just acquired with Obama and Kerr’s largesse. 100 refuelling tankers which means their pilots can cover an even more expanded area over the cauldron that is the ME. Bet the Sauds are trembling in their thongs and sending their Lamborginis overseas to safety post haste as they don’t want to lose their most prized possessions. I guess the women and girl’s will be left behind in the rush!

      Kerry, for one. He is in desperate need of a brain transplant.

        Given his decent Jewish and Forbes ancestry, one might have expected more of an eager racehorse being on tap. His assigned task of slowly pulling a clown wagon for a decrepit circus seems to have been a perceptive evaluation by someone.

        They could replace his brain with some of his over extended chin and it would probably do a better job. That is, if they could actually locate his brain!

    People all the time talk about this Iran deal means the big wars are going to happen, but Israel and Saudi Arabia are going to be the nations that decide on whether the wars happen out of their fears, which are based on nothing, since anyone can scream a million times of something that may or may not exist. The fact is they don’t know anything, and this is just a repeat of the 2003 Iraq invasion and all the events starting in 2001 with the Axis of Evil, and the phony intelligence from the CIA.

    The fact is do the people want to buy the propaganda again and believe the lies?!

    Even Joe Warmington’s show this past week illustrated the true intentions of the right. The Bomb Bomb Iran song appeared in his show. You can always tell the true intentions of interventionists by slight cues and they grin and smile like Cheshire cats. They love war and want others to fight their wars. The fact is Obama and Kerry are playing both sides, but Israel and Saudi Arabia have so little control that they cannot stop themselves?! That is what the real problem is! If those two nations are trapped by their paranoia nothing can help them.

    The fact is the Middle East is the way it is because of the wars that were launched, which destabilized the region!

    Even Ted Cruz listed two options which are just his choices that he would like people to decide on and they are war or Iran getting nukes when there is no proof of a nuclear program.

    The fact is they used the same stuff with Iraq and nothing was there.

    Even those claiming that weapons were found are just trying to find anything to grasp on to salvage their side’s intelligence, when the war was illegal and violated the sovereignty of Iraq. The US is an empire. That cannot be disputed.

    Cruz wants us to play his games on his terms, when there are so many alternatives, but, of course, we know that deals can be made to avoid war and the days of diplomacy for the US are over, since they are near collapse. The politicians, on both sides, sold out the US with trade agreements, outsourcing, lowering of wages, and helping those at the top than the average person. No wonder there are approximately 90 million Americans that cannot find work, but are adequately equipped with university/college degrees.

    It is the politicians that screwed up.

    Therefore, no, Cruz cannot get away with his two choices only games, because so many Americans know there are better ways than war. It is clear who Cruz works for, and it isn’t the American people, but the arms dealers, the Israel lobby, and those that seek to benefit from war.
