    What he has Right now is what Clinton came up with. That Framework understanding.

    Even if they don't keep their sanctions in place. Will they go ahead and conduct business and then lose money with the US? Can the Europeans afford to lose business with the US?

    As that can be a response too.
    So now you want to start a trade war with Europe? Is there anything worse than giving Iran the chance to not make an atomic bomb? Is there anything that will stop them if the US reneges on a possible agreement? No. in fact we will be telling them to hurry up and do it before we can attack them. Just like Bush did with N. Korea.

    So what you are saying is that a non-binding agreement that Iran will not likely follow is better then no agreement at all?

    It cannot go into effect if it is not a treaty, there is no other avenue I know of, no way the Obama nerds can change the lexicon on this one...
    Apparently he can. Otherwise there would be no rush to pass a law in Congress. Clearly congress does not "yet" have the authority to override this.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    Obama is doing his best to help Iran in any way he can, and Chuck Shumer, of all people, is trying to stop him.

    Yes, that's where we are.

    Actually, congress is attempting to pass a law in order to reign in a rogue president who know longer thinks our elected representatives in congress matter.

    It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.

    Dunno, but betting on a toothless tiger doesn't seem like it's a good place to put your bet.

    That is true. I just hope that the US is not the reason that Iran makes a nuclear weapon in the near future. Since I don't believe we will invade that means Iran will quite possibly ignite an nuclear arms race in the M.E. Just what that region needs and it could again be our fault.
