    Re: Obama Blasts Republicans Over Letter to Iranian Leadership

    No deal could be best deal on Iran
    March 10, 2015
    Norman Bailey
    Globes English - No deal could be best deal on Iran

    Stiffer Western resolve, thanks to France, could leave Iran bogged down in regional conflict.

    Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech before the joint houses of the American Congress appears not to have had much effect on public opinion, either in Israel or in the US. Polls show little change in party preferences for the upcoming elections in Israel, nor have they shown significant change in the support of the American people for Israel.

    This does not mean, however, that nothing is going on in the confrontation between the West and Iran. Minister of Strategic Affairs Yuval Steinitz strongly hinted that Israel's detailed knowledge of the deal US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian opposite number Javad Zarif are preparing came from the French. Now the French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, is saying that the deal as presently constituted does Not meet French standards for scope and enforceability.

    In response, the Obama administration is Backtracking, saying that no deal will be signed which limits the scaling-back of the Iranian production of fissile materials for ten or any other specific number of years, and which does not guarantee full cooperation with IAEA inspectors.

    Or have you forgotten the way they lied to General Powell before he spoke to the UN ?
    LOL !!

    Bush and Cheney lied to the Democrats in the 90s ??

    Bush, as Governor of Texas in the 90s convinced the Clinton administration and top Democrats that Saddam had WMD ?

    How does that work ? Because half of the posted quotes were from the 90s.

    Or did you just post without thinking again ?

    I think you owe Senator Cotton an apology.

    On January 11, 2005, Cotton joined the United States Army and entered Officer Candidate School in March 2005. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army on June 30, 2005. Cotton later attended both the U.S. Army Airborne School and Ranger School.[3]
    As an infantry officer and platoon leader with the 101st Airborne Division, he was deployed to Baghdad as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom on May 19, 2006. In Iraq, Cotton was responsible for a 41 man air assault infantry platoon in the 506th Infantry Regiment,[8] and planned and led daily combat patrols. He completed his first combat tour in Iraq on November 20, 2006, and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Iraq Campaign Medal, and various campaign/service medals.[3] . . . .
    In 2008, he volunteered to return to combat duty, was promoted to captain on August 1, 2008, and deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on October 15, 2008.
    In Afghanistan, Cotton was assigned to Laghman Province, just north of Tora Bora in eastern Afghanistan. He was assigned duty as the operations officer of a Provincial Reconstruction Team, where he planned and resourced daily counter-insurgencyand reconstruction operations for an 83-member joint and interagency team.[3] He returned from Afghanistan on July 20, 2009. For his second tour in Afghanistan he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and various campaign/service medals. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army on September 26, 2009 at Fort Myer, Virginia.[3]

    Pretty tough talk for a JAG who sat on his ass in Iraq for his service.

    Today's GOP is exactly what President Eisenhower warned us of and you know it .
    He "stated the case for war". Might you quote where was making a case for war?

    Well yes, but Obama was a community organizer and earned an ink stain medal for writing letters demanding grant money from the enemy business community. He was often in grave danger from carpal tunnel syndrome, doncha know.

    I disagree. Much of their air force and armor is old, and Russian. Not the best. It wouldn't be a walk in the park because their technological capabilities are better then any we've faced recently, and that might be problematic. But the constant pounding they would take would wear them down.

    We do not have sufficient forces for the war of attrition you describe.
