anybody watch the speech?
havent ever seen him on the offense like that
Good! War is the failure of diplomacy. Plus you can bet your bottom dollar that if it does come to war with Iran, the ones that are so fervently against the deal, won't be sending their kids to fight.
What is this in reference to? Link?
just finished a speech on the iran deal
Cool. Didn't see it, but I'll check it out.
I never really understood the opposition to the Iran deal...
people often cite the plaintive, "Iran sponsors terrorists!!!"
Saudi Arabia makes Iran look like freaking boy scouts, and we always cuddle up them...
war is the failure of diplomacy...exactly right.
Basically calling out everyone who supported the Iraq war and is opposing this.
Is he wrong?
They're lunatics, they're evil
Sounds right to me.
Fox news I think supports whatever is good for Israel
No, he's not wrong. Most of his opponents misunderstand what the deal is supposed to accomplish and why. The Israelis have their own concerns, but thankfully, their influence is waning.
He keeps talking about (and comparing himself to) Kennedy dealing with the Soviets (crediting Kennedy for wnding the cold war and saying history is on his side). Any mention of Clinton's nuclear deal with North Korea?
He probably used Kennedy because he's more universally loved then Clinton is.
And more obvious, north korea ended up with nuclear weapons.
Please tell us about this owning? He is allowing a country who was dodgy as fuck about nuclear inspection to have some nuclear production, correct?
So we went from allowing them none to allowing them some?
Now, how is he owning fools because right now I am reading your post and thinking this
Before calling other people fools, explain how we right now allow them none.
I cant really care less if Iran gets a nuke. They should just not sign the npt and be like anothet state in that region...
Full speech transcript:
The issue is the Shia bloc forming in opposition to the Israeli-Egyptian-Saudi "Sunni" bloc. The reasonable opposition is that Iran developing such a weapon will kick off a regional nuclear arms race (Saudi will likely just buy theirs from Pakistan). That's a legitimate concern.
What's not legitimate is that people think Iran will attack Israel with nukes and be destroyed in return. They simply aren't going to do that. What the Israelis are concerned about is no longer being able to go into Lebanon after they lose the ability to seriously threaten Hezbullah's sponsor, Iran.
TL;DR we should have reapproached with Iran after the first Gulf War and ditched the Saudis.
