Obama’s Tentative Iran Deal

This whole fiasco has been hypocrisy from the start. Iran isn’t allowed a nuclear bomb because Washington says so. How many nuclear bombs does Washington control? And Tel Aviv? And Paris? And London? And Pakistan? Russia, China and a host of others?

But Iran is the big special, unique case, the one with lots of oil, gas and a spirit of defiance since the CIA’s dictator was run out of the country in 1979. All very distasteful.

The US and Israel threaten first use strikes against the world. An Iranian bomb would be a deterrent against being attacked in such a first-use strike. Everyone with any sense knows that nuclear weapons are useful as deterrents and not much else. It’s a MAD world.

Keeping Iran in an essentially defenseless position keeps open the door for future wars. The Republican congress won’t even approve that, and so look for a war on Iran sooner rather than later.

Obama: Historic deal reached on Iran nuclear program

As Monty Python said, “It’s recently come to our attention how much there is left for us to own.”
