    If not, then there's no reason to require it now.
    Yes, there is. Treaties require the advice and consent of the Senate. Just because a particular congress fails in it's duties does not mean the duty no longer exists.

    If they devastate the right facilities they can set them back a very long time. As for responding against US ships in the Straights of Hormuz, let's hope for their own sake, the Iranians are not that stupid. It would not end well for them.

    Or we back out of negotiations that have no chance of going anywhere. You just don't get it. North Korea was already cheating on a freshly signed agreement while the US negotiator was on the runway at the airport. Sometimes backing out of negotiations sends a stronger message. As for Obama, he does not give a ****. He is just legacy hunting.

    Jimmuh Carter was just there with a toothy grin when the agreement was signed. Henry Kissinger of the previous administration had done the brunt of the groundwork before Jimmuh ever took office.

    The Camp David Accord?

    Yeah that worked.

    And I guess Iran is no longer in the middle east. You may have heard that there was this issue with American diplomats being tortured and ****? It was in all the papers.

    There was something less than "peace" there, in fact some Democrats at the time said it was the worst the middle east had been since 1963...

    but then they were there...what could they possibly know?

    Carter was a cowardly spineless appeasing weasel just like Obama. Why did that recipe work for Carter and not Obama in the ME?

    Walk out now, just walk away and say the injunctions stay. Bye!

    See what happens.

    I suspect we will then have a justified military option

    Jimmy is "a cowardly spineless appeasing weasel just like Obama."

    Is, the man is still alive, or so they say.

    He still wears sweaters in the winter and, just like Obama, brags about himself all day.

    Ayatollah Khamenei Accuses WH of 'Lying,' Being 'Deceptive,' and Having 'Devilish' Intentions | The Weekly Standard

    Iran/Khamenei accuses Obama of lying and devilish intentions. I can't argue with that. A narcissistic weasel like Obama will beg, barrow and steal AND LIE in his desperate attempt to try to build some semblance a positive legacy.

    And he's practically a wholly owned subsidiary of the banks.
