Munich Pact II – Changing the Subject

message


Apparently we have made some kind of a deal with Iran. I’m sketchy on the details and I really don’t feel like analyzing the deal anyway. If you want some wonky dissection of the terms and conditions there are lots of places that are gonna be doing that. I honestly don’t think it really matters.

I don’t trust Iran to keep any deal it makes. I don’t trust Obama to keep a deal, enforce a deal, or even be competent in making a deal. (Can you name one Obama policy or program that has worked?)

Israel has already come out against the deal. Not surprisingly, the Obamafluffers in the media are praising it. One thing you can be sure of is that the Sunday morning news shows will all be talking about it.

Which, not coincidentally, is Obama’s primary purpose in making the deal. Because if the media is talking about Iran they ain’t talking about Obamacare.

In the long run I really don’t think it’s gonna make that much difference. Western Civilization and radical Islam are heading for a decisive showdown. Iran (aka “Persia”) has always wanted to control the region. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where this is going.

There is no deal that we can make with Iran that will get them to give up their pursuit of a nuclear weapon and/or their dream of jihad with the West.

It is the same thing we dealt with in the Cold War when successive administrations were resolute in halting and containing Soviet expansion. We won the Cold War, but Russia is still Russia. With Iran it is religion instead of ideology but the principle remains the same.

Peace through strength was our policy. Then and now our enemies were ready to pounce on any sign of weakness. Yesterday, Iran pounced. Russia and China are pleased. Israel and Saudi Arabia are pissed.

I’m guessing the next move will be made by Israel. They won’t take this laying down.

    They keep calling this a “deal”. Treaties require 2/3 Senate approval. Any kind of monetary aid requires House and Senate approval.

  2. Lulu says:

    Changing the subject is about all they can do at this point. Yesterday war brought out between the Broncobama administration, the Obamacare contractors and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid civil service. Of course Bronco had been trying to blame the crooked contractors and the sycophants in the civil service when all they had been doing was trying to please incompetents and idiots in the WH.

    First up was a blow job by the Wapo. http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/healthcaregov-contractor-had-high-confidence-but-low-success/2013/11/23/1ab2c2b2-5407-11e3-9fe0-fd2ca728e67c_story.html Sample blowing is “During the past two months, it has become evident that no single reason explains why HealthCare.gov, a top administration priority, was not ready 31/2 years after President Obama signed a sprawling law designed to reshape the U.S. health-care system.” That is a lie just like the prezzie’s and other administration hacks blatant lies about the entire thing. The intent was chaos and chaos they got.

    • Lulu says:

      Following this piece of WaPo crap was a piece by the NYT. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/23/us/politics/tension-and-woes-before-health-website-crash.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0 Sample leak given to NYT “The prime contractor, CGI Federal, had long before concluded that the administration was blindly enamored of an unrealistic goal: creating a cutting-edge website that would use the latest technologies to dazzle consumers with its many features. Knowing how long it would take to complete and test the software, the company’s officials and other vendors believed that it was impossible to open a fully functioning exchange on Oct. 1.” “The online exchange was crippled, people involved with building it said in recent interviews, because of a huge gap between the administration’s grand hopes and the practicalities of building a website that could function on opening day.”

      Now the WH is threatening them all to keep quiet. ““Cut corners, make date,” said one specialist, who like most of the people interviewed for this article would not allow his name to be used because the Obama administration has requested that all government officials and contractors involved keep their work confidential. ” Good luck with that Bronco.

        As usual with Obama & Co. it’s all about theater and the substance is irrelevant. Obama in a nutshell.

        • leslie says:

          I am certain that “No drama Obama” and the “Never let a crisis go to waste” administration create as much drama and chaos as they can to do whatever they want at all times. Whether it is the ACA or treaties with anyone their trademark is chaos to keep everyone off balance.

        He will need all the good luck he can find. 😆

    • Constance says:

      I don’t think the Obots are competent enough to have planned this chaos as a strategy. I also think American Citizens will try to organize and go around the government health care clusterfuck and medical people will be on the side of the Citizens. I think it will wind up being Government and Multinational Insurance companies vs American Citizens and Doctors and other medical professionals. Probably we will live and act in parallel universes.

  4. Just what I wanted. To wake up and find out my country is now paying tribute to Iran. And yes, that is how I look at it.
    We are going to give billions to a country that is run my religious loons intent on destroying the West.
    Wonderful.
    Basic common sense says never pay the blackmailer.

    • DeniseVB says:

      We’re giving them 4 billion too ? Geesh Bam, you’ll negotiate with terrorists but not republicans ? What a tool.

      • leslie says:

        True story. And the beat goes on on on on on …………

      • angienc says:

        It’s the Republicans and American citizens in the Tea Party who are the terrorists according to Obama, the Dems & the MSM. Haven’t you been paying attention?

        As for the $ we’re giving Iran & the AQ affiliates we’re arming in Syria — that’s retribution for the West’s colonization/taking advantage of those people.

  5. abc says:

    How long before Obama claims he knows nothing about this deal?

  6. elliesmom says:

    From my Jewish friend’s Facebook – Obama to Israel – “If you like your country, you can keep your country.”

  7. So this is not a treaty right? So the only say Congress will have is on the appropriation of funds. I look for Congress to say no and Backtrack to find a way around it. Perhaps routing the cash through the U.N.

    George Will:

    The White House, disoriented by adoration — including the self-adoration — of its principal occupant, sits in a city that has become addicted to its own adrenaline. It is in a perpetual swivet stoked by media for which every inter-institutional dust-up is a crisis.

    This year began with the “fiscal cliff” crisis. (You may have forgotten, there having been so many supposedly epochal events to keep track of: All the Bush tax cuts were set to expire; the “crisis” ended when only those cuts for the wealthy were allowed to lapse.)

    Then came spring and the “sequester crisis,” meaning discretionary spending “slashed” by “draconian” cuts of . . . 2.3 percent. Autumn brought the crisis of the shutdown of (part of) the government and the crisis surrounding the inevitable raising of the debt ceiling. The ostensible crisis was that the Obama administration might choose to default on the nation’s debt even though government revenues were 10 times larger than required to service the debt.

    Good grief. The 1854 passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act was a crisis. As was the 1857 Dred Scott decision, the Great Depression and Pearl Harbor. But as for 2013’s blizzard of supposed crises: Arguments between the houses of Congress, or between the executive and legislative branches, about money should not be called crises; they should be called politics. The separation of powers that is the essence of the constitutional system assumes rivalrous institutions. When, however, the conflict is not about money but about the nation’s constitutional architecture, perhaps the language of crisis is apposite.

    Bibi doesn’t mince words:

    Israel’s prime minister harshly condemned the international community’s nuclear deal with Iran on Sunday, calling it a “historic mistake” and saying he was not bound by the agreement.

    Speaking to his Cabinet, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the world had become a “more dangerous place” as a result of the deal and reiterated a long-standing threat to use military action against Iran if needed, declaring that Israel “has the right and the duty to defend itself by itself.” …

    “What was reached last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, it is a historic mistake,” Netanyahu said. “Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world.”

    Voicing what he called Israel’s right to self-defense, he said, “I want to clarify that Israel will not let Iran develop nuclear military capability.”

  11. DeniseVB says:

    I’m curious about the timing of this announcement. Late on a Saturday night ? Didn’t Congress just take off for their 2 week Thanksgiving break? Just a big giant squirrel to knock Obamacare off the Sunday morning shows ? I wish we had a normal President who liked us 😦

      I know Drew M is a co-blogger at AoSHQ but he’s also a hysterical boob who falls for whatever squirrel the MSM throws out to distract from Obama. He did it throughout the entire 2012 GE, spending his time beating up on Romney instead of focusing on Obama (to the extent he may as a well have actually have voted *for* Obama). And he’s falling for the same tactic now. First, I don’t believe the Hill — always in Obama’s pocket — if that McCarthy guy said that, it’s probably taken out of context. Second, even if he *did* say it, one congressional rep doesn’t mean shit. Until there’s a bill *actually* being debated in the House, I’m keeping my focus on Obama & the Dems are doing.

    off topoic

    just went to CVS because I had a raincheck and got two radio controlled cars for my oldest two great grandsons.
    one is a camaro and the other a ford GT.
    what are the odds that the two dads play with them more than the kids.
    Both my grandson and my grand daughter’s husband are over 6 ft tall and I can see them down on the floor racing like little kids
