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.
Boy, this is going to make the rest of this season of “Homeland” awkward
