    Unbelievable.
    On 10 November 1999, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright addressed another open meeting, this one held at the Chicago Hilton and Towers. Challenged to defend the Clinton administration's support of an economic and trade embargo against Iraq, Secretary Albright responded:If you remember in 1991, Saddam Hussein invaded another country, he plagued it, he set fire to it, and he decided that he could control the region. Before that, he had gassed his own people.

    Saddam Hussein had been acquiring weapons of mass destruction. We carried out, with the help of an alliance, a war in which we put Saddam Hussein back into his box. The United Nations voted on a set of resolutions which demanded Saddam Hussein live up to his obligations and get rid of weapons of mass destruction.

    The United Nations Security Council imposed a set of sanctions on Saddam Hussein until he did that. It also established an organization that is set up to monitor whether Hussein had gotten rid of his weapons of mass destruction.

    There has never been an embargo against food and medicine. It's just that Hussein has just not chosen to spend his money on that. Instead, he has chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction, and palaces for his cronies.

    NIMBY...

    OH WAIT I did find that horrible war mongering letter:

    http://www.cotton.senate.gov/content...-republic-iran

    I am shocked, SHOCKED that those Senators would tell the Iranians that, under our Constitution, Congress must approve treaties by a two-thirds vote, and approve a binding agreement by a majority vote.

    And then he tells them that the offices of our Constitution have different characteristics! He actually says that Obama will be gone in 2017, while most of the signers will be around.

    He then says: "What these two constitutional provisions mean is that we will consider any agreement regarding your nuclear-weapons program that is not approved by the Congress as nothing more than an executive agreement between President Obama and Ayatollah Khamenei. The next president could revoke such an executive agreement with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time."

    Well HEll YES, those are WAR words...ASAP.

    LOL...

    The problem is that not even the Senate knows what's in the treaty which they are Constitutionally obligated to ratify before Obama signs it, Obama apparently thinks that the Constitution is just a piece of paper.

    You mean in order to be non-partisan I would have to say that Obama is a good President?

    I'd be willing to do that but have nothing on which to base this opinion.

    Sen. McCain: Cotton letter not the "most effective" way to handle the Iran talks.
    As Sen. McCain finds his conscience again--as he is often prone to do when his GOP makes him sick to his stomach .

    A real threat would be the fifth columns based in Europe and North America. It would not be a war like anything in the past.

    You’re not allowed to know what Cotton said to the defense contractors. The event was “off the record and strictly non-attribution.” But you can bet it was what Dwight Eisenhower meant when he warned of the military-industrial complex.

    The defense industry contributed more than $25 million in the 2014 election cycle and spent more than $250 million lobbying over that time period, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. For the defense industry, this is a good investment: If Senate Republicans blow up nuclear talks, it makes war with Iran that much more likely — and nobody would benefit as much from that war as military contractors.
    Hack, hackety hack hack, tell us who is Dana's source for this alleged breakfast? Now we all know now that Dana supports a fascist dictatorship but luckily in this country we have a little thing called the Constitution which requires a Senate ratification before any foreign treaty is signed by the POTUS, and he can call it a "deal" and an "agreement" or whatever other bull**** he wants, but we all know that it's a treaty.

    As you would prefer he start another Iraq type war with 200,000 civilians killed and 4,500 soldiers dead based on the lies of Cheney/Rumsfeld/Condi.

    Or even better, would you prefer six years ago when we were hemorrhaging 4.4 million jobs in six months.
    Trashing tax revenues for years to come and raising deficits.

    I'm sure you don't see over 200,000 jobs a month for a year as anything positive, let alone 60 straight months of private sector job growth .
