    America and much of the world (including Australia) gets a significant amount of oil from this region and so it is important. Allowing nuclear weapons to proliferate here is not a good idea. It makes everyone nervous. No one wants to see shaky governments, especially ones that threaten genocide on an ally, sponsor terrorist organizations, and posture aggressively against their neighbors, to have nuclear weapons.
    But only a nation that criminally invades other nations and murders millions and their sycophantic satraps should be the ones to have nukes, right?

    Excellent! All sanctions usually do is hurt the innocent anyway.

    Obama did something right (for once).

    Good for him.

    Compared to the Democratic majority "yes we can," but probably shouldn't.

    Well, you spoke of countries invading others and murdering millions...so naturally I assumed you were talking about Germany or Japan. No?

    Please note that my comments are dripping with sarcasm because I think your comments are ridiculous.

    I don't know if it is better or not. I seen the U.S. enter into many deals and most were probably worst than no deal at all. Although some work out quite nicely. For me the worst one was the Paris Peace Pact which was basically a surrender deal although none us knew it at the time. So I have been leery ever since. But in a deal like this both sides have to give somethings and take somethings then let time pass to see whether it was a good deal or a bad deal. One will never know by just looking at the deal when it is made. One finds out as the months and years go by in any deal, treaty made whether it was good or bad. In other words, history will be the final arbiter.

    So maybe the question should be: Do we keep the status quo and watch as Iran slowly moves towards their Nuclear bombs or do we try something that if it works may help prevent this, but if it backfires will let Iran develop their bomb that much faster? There are pros and cons for each option. This is not a black and white thing as most people make it out to be, it has tons of shades of gray.

    The sad part is most people on this site will make up their mind based on the R and the D. Republicans against it and Democrats for it. So I let a night pass whether than rush to judgement, not much new info has come to light. But knowing eventually Iran will have the bomb if we do nothing a some near point in the future, I think we might as well give it a try. It is not that I think the deal will be successful, I have my doubts. But doing nothing accomplishes nothing and there is a chance this might even succeed. So as leery as I am, I am fine with it.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
