China is a mess wanna be like the USA so bad the trade thing is little giving the fact they hold our debt were never going pay back. And please russia is a joke on the international stage. Russia is like that guy who says mines bigger then yours wanna see? No russia we don't care.
    Wow! What is exactly Obama foreign policy dealing with 'bad' nations? Making deals with countries like Iran who immediately turn around and break it without a single meaningfully response? Cuba has supported regimes like Venezuela and North Korea and allowed China to drill for oil off its coast. Saudi Arabia is no different they any other Muslim country when it comes to women, in fact less so as they have allowed women to go to school, vote and hold elected office. Slow progress but never the less progress.
    What wars has the US fought for/in place of Saudi soldiers? China does hold that much of US debt...its only about 8% of the total....U.S. Debt - How Much China Owns

    If Russian is a joke on the international stage why do you push Obama and the US around without consequences? And you better care as they and China are our biggest threat to world peace overall.

    And how would you have forced Iran to stop its nuclear program?

    Just what has the deal accomplished? Instead of one year (which is the same one year we have been hearing for the last 10 years) to achieve a nuclear weapon its now will take 5-10...big deal. If I ever decided to get a divorce I wouldn't want Kerry to negotiate the terms for me.

    Well it should not be the job of the US to force Iran to do anything...that what the flacking UN is for. But the results of the financial sanctions seems to have force Iran to the table...which is where the rest of the world folded to Iran threats and the chance to sell products to them...like the big EU Airbus contract and Russian arms deals for example.

    Well, the UN wasn't going to do anything, and besides, Iran plays a role in the UN...

    I understand all the weaknesses of the deal Obama cut, but at the end of the day the options were (1) continue sanctions even though those didn't stop Iran from continuing to develop the bomb, aka, let Iran develop the bomb, or (2) partner up with Israel, invade Iran, fight a costly ground war, occupy Iran while dismantling all facilities, and pray that Iran doesn't become another Iraq/Afghanistan due to power vacuums and sectarian feuds.

    It tends to get my dander up when people criticize something like the Iran deal without a viable option. There were zero good choices on that one.




    If we bought 5-10 years, that means we have 5-10 years to think of what strategy to pursue if/when we develop evidence that Iran broke the deal. I'd prefer that to either doing nothing different, or an all-out invasion.
