If Obama is NOT the Manchurian Candidate, he's sure doing a great job of imitating one. "Worse than we could have imagined."

Because Iran, joined by Russia — our “reset” partner — sprung the demand at the last minute, calculating that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry were so desperate for a deal that they would cave. They did.
The net effect of this capitulation will be not only to endanger our Middle East allies now under threat from Iran and its proxies, but also to endanger our own naval forces in the Persian Gulf. Imagine how Iran’s acquisition of the most advanced anti-ship missiles would threaten our control over the gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, waterways we have kept open for international commerce for a half-century. . .
The action now shifts to Congress. The debate is being hailed as momentous. It is not. It’s irrelevant. Congress won’t get to vote on the deal until September. But Obama is taking the agreement to the U.N. Security Council for approval within days . Approval there will cancel all previous U.N. resolutions outlawing and sanctioning Iran’s nuclear activities. Meaning: Whatever Congress ultimately does, it won’t matter because the legal underpinning for the entire international sanctions regime against Iran will have been dismantled at the Security Council. Ten years of painstakingly constructed international sanctions will vanish overnight, irretrievably. . .
Iran will be flush with cash, legitimized as a normal international actor in good standing, recognized (as Obama once said) as “a very successful regional power.” Stopping Iran from going nuclear at that point will be infinitely more difficult and risky. Which is Obama’s triumph. He has locked in his folly. He has laid down his legacy, and we will have to live with the consequences for decades.

The focus of the press, and therefor our press driven leadership, is not whether any of this is of any benefit or harm to anyone, not the USA, not the Israelis, not anyone other than whether or not is of benefit or harm to the political parties, the various elected officials, and the lobbyists and staffers that feed off the "Inside the Beltway" game. It's all about the game and the score.

Not about whether or not the Iranians might use a nuke or a dozen to erase the "Zionist Entity". They no more believe that Iran wants to erase Israel than their predecessors believed Hitler was serious about eradicating European Jews. Like the use of jetliners as guided weapons on 9/11, like the attack at Ft. Hood, like the most recent Jihadi attack in Chattanooga, our talking heads will agree that mushroom clouds over Tel Aviv could not have been foreseen or prevented, thereby absolving themselves of any felt guilt or self doubt over the deaths innocents as a result of their polyanna view of the nature of evil in the world.

Remember President Carter saying the most shocking thing that happened in his term of office was not the disaster at Desert One, but the realization that Leonid Brezhnev had lied to him?

They are truly a school of fancy Koi swimming with Piranhas.

What a CROCK! Iran is nowhere near being close to having a Nuclear Weapon! This "Good Cop"/Bad Cop" routine between Obama and the repubs, is to Try and Pre-Condition the American people into believing Iran has Nuclear capabilities ( When they don't ), so when Obama and the dems and repubs, hit the "Kill Switch" on our Power Grid and Internet and Try and Blame it on an Iranian nuclear emp weapon, the American people will more readily ( In theory at least ), go along with the Martial law and the cessation of Our God Given Civil Rights and Civil Liberties that will accompany it!

It also is about Trying to create a Pre-Text with the American people beforehand, that we have to go into both Syria and Iran, to have to end that phony nuclear "Threat"...When it actually is about Trying to surround Russia from the east and China from the West and to eventually Try and invade and destroy both Russia and China!...This Insane Madness by our government if not stopped, will guarantee a Nuclear War and our Annihilation!
