Now those rebels have turned into ISIS. You really need to get your head out of the sand.

As for Iran, I think they should just go for the bomb. The West has nothing but destruction and chaos to offer.

Just look at Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afganistan, Yemen, Pakistan, etc…….

This article makes it crystal clear.

When the Ayatollahs snap, their step and fetch it boy, Trita, jumps. God save the Iranian people from toadies likes this.

It looks like they and the Iranians have outmaneuvered AIPAC and Congressional Israel-firsters. The EU will supply backup, in case the Senate tries to infringe on the president’s power to make foreign policy. The 11% of Americans who have a favorable view of Congress will be in no position to foil a sane and productive relationship between Iran and the US, at long last.

He correctly spelled President Obama’s name. Other than that, he’s pretty far off in everything else he lays out in this editorial. Let’s deal with his primary thesis which is if you oppose an end run around the Constitution and favor giving Iran access to nuclear weapons then you MUST be a war monger. Unfortunately for Mr. Parsi the vast majority of American voters have a deep and abiding respect for the rule of law, be it paying their taxes, not shoplifting in an Apple store or killing their neighbor. In this case, they believe a President wanting to make unilateral decisions about giving a radicalized Islamic theocracy access to nuclear weapons without approval bu Congress might be a bit problematic. But far be it for Mr. Parsi to ignore such mundane things as political reality. He doubles down with the belief that Iran can be a trusted party. This coming from a regime that has supported Assad in Syria and sparked one of the bloodiest sectarian wars since the Middle Ages and recently and frequently hangs its political prisoners including women and gays. It is reassuring though that Iran’s mullahs have such an ardent and fervent supporter in Mr. Parsi who never fails to disappoint in his loyalty to the small cadre of clerics that run Iran. Lastly Mr. Parsi argues for a narrow pathway for Obama to navigate a deal bypassing Congress. It is this argument that reveals the depth and nature of his slavish support for Iran at the price of a true accounting by America’s political system. He argues that since opponents to an Iran treaty (and this includes a vast majority of both Democratic and Republican senators) are really war mongers, then their views are irrelevant and hence should be ignored in the name of expediency. To listen and act on Mr. Parsi’s suggestion would be no different than taking a direct order from Supreme Leader Khamenei and just as likely to prove disastrous as his decision to support Assad was in giving birth to ISIS.

Not only will they object, they may go against America. For example Germany FOR SURE will say dont use our territory for any thing to do with war. No treatment of injured soldiers and no using any German land for anything to do with the war. Russia will arm Iran FOR SURE with the latest SS missile system. China already has signed a naval pact with Iran. And then the ongoing turmoil in the ME. So even if the Congress voted for a war, America wont. Because it will be America that will loose the most.

Israel has hundreds of nuclear weapons, but no one says a peep about it. So what is really going on here?
