    Hope like hell it works. Making an ally out of Iran might strain our relationship with Saudi Arabia and a little with Israel... but honestly, I'd much rather have Iran as an ally than the Saudi's. Every time we turn around those that actually cause us problems from that region almost always seem to emanate out of or have ties to the Saudi's.
    1. Iran perceives us as an enemy because they want regional hegemony, meaning that their strategic goals are incompatible with ours. Also, we tempt their young people with blue jeans and democracy, which makes us Satan.
    2. A "nuclear deal" where "Iran get's to keep their nukes and we get to deal with it" isn't a "deal", it is a "surrender".
    3. Iran is already dedicating their available resources against IS. It's not like sending them a letter is suddenly going to create a division of reserve Qods Force guys for them.


    If we give Iran the nuclear greenlight, Saudi Arabia has basically already said that they will immediately begin their own program. Given your last paragraph, you might enjoy spending some time ruminating on the implications of that.

    Obama thinks I'm the enemy.

    Iran's populace is by far the most westernized of the all those ME Muslim countries. Iran does not desire to make a caliphate which works well for us. Iran does not want a caliphate made which works well for us. Iran's mullahs get further and further up on the ropes by their own people every year. Iran is not the scary beast you guys are making them out to be. Saudi Arabia is.

    Saudi doesn't fund Hamas and Hezbollah. Iran does.

    A secret treaty with Iran would not only be invalid, but illegal; possibly even treason.

    Not only do they have their people funding terrorism, they have their people participating in killing Americans and the Iranian government directly funds Hamas and Hezbollah.
