Comments on: Iran’s leaders wonder who’s really in charge in U.S. They may be surprised. http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/01/why-new-sanctions-against-iran-are-looking-less-likely/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JoeAmerican05 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/01/why-new-sanctions-against-iran-are-looking-less-likely/#comment-131212 Sun, 08 Feb 2015 02:32:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=37585#comment-131212 Maybe we should arrest presidents who try to make deals with terrorists?

The government of Iran, by proxy, is a terrorist organization. We should not be negotiating with them. They MUST NOT be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon, their ability to finance the terrorist groups of the world needs to come to an end.

In short, Iran needs to be treated like any other terrorism organization, and iradicated.

Since Israel only looks out for its own best interest, it is now time to do the same. I can’t understand why would support Israel so much, so blindly and the American People, back this for some strange reason. Yes, they suffered a lot during World War 2, but so did a lot of others in Nazi concentration camps.

Either Israel starts listening to the United States and finally solves the Palestinian occupation or we should cut off all ties and put sanctions on. No more American money or support to they start being a good citizen of the world

Fear mongering anyone? Fuel up the jet for apology tour 2.0

Iran has a history of failing to follow through with its promises in regards to internal nuclear policies. Obama needs to stop worrying about his legacy and return to the land of reality. This veto threat is the political version of “I’m taking my ball and going home.”

Ask yourself how many wars/interventions/regime changes Iran has been involved in and how many the States were/are involved in

not saying the Iranians are angels but US foreign policy has been incredibly belligerent

And realised his mandate. One should trust the trustworthy. Trusting the Republicans was a critical mistake, amounting to trusting the tea party fanatics. Cris Christie’s book on the death of a political party has lessons for Obama. Their thinking is partisan and constantly shaped by unilateralism that has lost its relevance.
Let Obama make bold moves to reset the international relations.

It’s sadly ironic that he starts off by asking the question of who runs the U.S. Ironic because democracy is a messy, difficult, conflict and maddening process. Unfortunately for Parsi, the U.S. can’t be neat and efficient like Iran where political dissent is suppressed, the internet blocked, social media banned, reporters arrested and opponents put in prison. I’m sure he finds it unfortunate the U.S. just doesn’t round up 1,000 opponents to a nuclear deal with Iran and simply hang them as Iran has done the past year with great efficiency. It’s sad that he represents a regime that bases national policy on personal interpretations of the word of God and devotes its national infrastructure to supporting terror and wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan. But coming from him, it’s to be expected.

Tehran has a long track record of hoodwinking the world. Many years of blocked inspections and deceit of IAEA inspectors leave much doubt as to the trustworthiness of this regime.
Remember the story of the boy who cried wolf? A parallel and more important story, might be the boy who said nothing when the wolf came.

Something tells me most Americans are looking for an answer as well. Something stinks in America today.

This is a stroke of genius on the part of the current U.S. administration. Not because we with Iran ill will, but because they now have a reason to step up and participate in the control of jihadists. China will need to do more as well. They breed like rabbits, use much of the world’s resources, and do very housework around the world for what they take.
