All in all... I'm not an expert on what the full implications are of this deal because well it's hard to say really...
These kinds of things are never clear in how they end and the fact so many turned their nose up instantly proves it's more to do with Obama than the deal itself...
Maybe it'll work... maybe it won't but all I do know is that at least it's SOMETHING!
After years of no movement at all we've finally got something and ultimately neither the Bush or Obama administrations saw value in military action because of how costly, devastating and long term implications it entailed it's not as if that was going to change anytime soon anyway.
Remember, he's the one (among others) that told the world's biggest lie just to get ObamaCare, excuse me, Un-Affordable-Try-And-Get-Care, sneaked past the American people on totally false pretenses (basically criminal fraud).
Yeah, can't trust this guy as far as you can throw him. Seems that Israel and the Saudis can't trust him either. Not a reliable ally he.
And yes, we could certainly walk in and upload some more fun and exciting viruses onto their computers, and of course future negotiations would be rendered fubar. I don't see how sacrificing all credibility in future deals helps us.
