    First you posed two strawman questions about what I think and then drew a false conclusion that it spoke volumes.

    I think it's clear that you can't comprehend your posts.

    So Germany, France, Russia et al have no better way to spend their time coming to an agreement that is not legally binding, either? Good for them, I guess! BaWa-hahahahahahaha!

    Hezbollah, which is an arm of the Iranian regime, started the trend of Islamist suicide bombings in service of terror groups back in the 80s. You may recall they killed a few Marines with the tactic, and by "a few", I of course mean 220. Not only did Iran heavily use suicide bombers in the Iraq Iran war, it used waves of children for that purpose. They had them charge minefields to clear them or wear bombs and bury themselves in shallow holes in roads before the tanks rolled over them in order to achieve more damaging kills. If you can't find any history of Iranian suicide bombing, you must not have looked at all.

    Not sure if you've been following the news lately - some Republican Senators said the same thing recently in a letter, and it sent set some of our left-wing-chattering-class to banging their sippy cups and throwing a little bit of a fit.

    Perhaps Kerry and Obama are hoping it will be Morally Binding.

    Kerry's not confessing or admitting anything. The deal doesn't and shouldn't be "legally binding. " It's an executive agreement.
    Which means that the Senators' letter was quite right and proper.

    Do you have any news links that back up that assertion?

    You mean you'd like to think that. BTW, I think they are rational actors-but you wouldn't like the very logical rationale.
