Iran is the only reasonably democratic, stable country in the Middle East. The one country the USA could really do business with, and with which it shares a vision of the future that’s grounded in civil and technical progress.

Israel is an apartheid mutant zombie kept alive by massive yearly infusions of American taxpayer money.

And the Sunni Arab autocracies and dictatorships are a cesspool of backwardness, repression (particularly of women), and murderous dead-end religious fanaticism.

Unfortunately, it’s the Israeli and Sunni Arab lobbies that own our venal politicians.

Passing of this bill will be a slap on the face of Israel. And will prove the bluff of Israel’s threat to attack on Iran, is true.

A sociologist once said that if men define situations as real, then they are real in their consequences.

As in Cuba 50 years ago, the Iran parliament has heard nothing but insults and threats from the West, and they’ve seen what we’ve done to other Moslem countries.

Iran is hurting from our sanctions. That’s why they’ve come to the negotiating table. Now the House of Representatives is about to pass a bill imposing still greater sanctions, not only on Iran but on any countries that trade with Iran’s banks, like England and France. A member of the House has suggested using nuclear bunker busters in Iran. Some of us seem to itch for military action.

If we step out of the box, we might see why some Iranians expect an invasion any day and might want a nuclear deterrent.

The bottom line: Obama will allow Iran to have a nuclear bomb capability because he always supports the Muslim Brotherhood and the Globe will suffer for this.

Yeah, guys, go for it! I’m already sick with your “negotiations.” It’s overdue to continue politics by other means.

The Israel lobby wants everyone to believe that its the sanctions that brought the Iranians and the US to the negotiating table but to the contrary its the realization by the the US that the Iranians will not stop their pursuit of knowledge. The Iranians offered this same deal a decade ago when they had 200 old model centrifuges but US thought it could get the Iranians to give up the under the stress of sanctions but to their surprise Iran now has thousands of new design centrifuges and they are not stopping.

…” enrichment to 60 percent, sufficient for use in the reactors that power nuclear submarines. Iran says it plans to build one of these” – stockpiling hi-grade nuclear fuel for undesigned military project with murky future – sounds perfectly reasonable.
