Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
It's a good milestone. If Iran is key to peace in the ME then it's stupid not to talk to them. And now, a lot of skeptics and critics are surprised at how good the deal really is.....the Saudi king, for one....
'...Saudi Arabia’s King Salman staked out less confrontational ground, telling President Obama that he hoped it would strengthen “stability and security” in the region.
The remarks by Salman suggested no major policy shifts by Saudi Arabia or its Persian Gulf Arab partners after the announcement Thursday of a framework that would place limits on Iran’s nuclear program — but allow some level of uranium enrichment — in exchange for easing international sanctions...."
Iran nuclear pact stirs hope
It was just last week the Saudi's were threatening a nuclear arms race if the Iran deal was agreed on.....today...meh, not so much.
Not to mention "unafraid", as told to us by Bret Baier.

Looking at the framework for this deal, I'd say the G6 got much of what they wanted while Iran got to keep a small fraction of their nuclear enrichment program intact.
I know the pundits wanted a total dismantling of Iran's nuclear program but that was unreasonable. You'd never get a sovereign nation to agree to that. But what you could do was force them to prove that their nuclear ambitions were peaceful. If they are, Iran should have no problem downgrading their production/enrichment capabilities and limit such to R&D and nuclear energy only.
I noticed as Bibi Netanyahu made the Sunday talk show circuit, not only did he back down on his demand that Iran declare Israel's right to exist, he also downplayed his demand for total dismantling. However, his hyperbole is still in full bore, such as....
While I'm sure Iran could produce a bomb or two from the 3.76% enriched uranium they're allowed to produce, let's keep in mind this is low-grade enriched uranium. Therefore, any bomb they do manage to produce would be a rather crude weapon at best.....keeping the infrastructure to produce not one nuclear bomb but many, many nuclear bombs down the line...
There's lots to like from this deal. But the critics like Sen. Lindsay Graham will continue to put down the President's efforts to find a peaceful, diplomatic solution to this problem whether the framework for this Iran nuke deal went more to Bibi's favor or not.
