Oh we would have been tough

We would have driven a hard bargain and brought the Iranians to their knees. How has that been working fo you for the last decade or so? Just what great negotiable decision has been made by GW Bush and the republican counter parts. I would like to applaud their effort if there was any evidence of it.


How did the North Korean nuke deal come out for you? I suppose your tough negotiations stopped them dead in their tracks. Iraq was one of the axis of evil. How did that turn out for Bush and co?


And your constant war with Barack Obama. Have you claimed victory after all your endevours you block his every effort. Have you made any progress worth noting? I think not.

Re: Oh we would have been tough




President Obama promised that his nuclear deal with Iran would not be “based on trust” but rather “unprecedented verification.” Now it turns out Obama’s verification regime is based on trust after all — trust in two secret side agreements negotiated exclusively between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that apparently no one (including the Obama administration) has seen.

Worse, Obama didn’t even reveal the existence of these secret side deals to Congress when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill. The agreements were uncovered, completely by chance, by two members of Congress — Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) — who were in Vienna meeting with the U.N.-releated agency.

Marc Thiessen writes a weekly column for The Post on foreign and domestic policy and contributes to the PostPartisan blog. He is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. View Archive

In an interview, Pompeo told me that he and Cotton were meeting with the deputy director of the IAEA and the agency’s two top Iran negotiators just days after the nuclear accord was announced, when they asked how the agency will carry out verification at the Iranian military complex at Parchin. IAEA officials told them, quite casually, that the details were all covered in agreements negotiated between the IAEA and the Iranian government. It was the first they had heard of the side deals.

Pompeo says they asked whether they could see those agreements. He says IAEA officials replied, “ ‘Oh no, of course not, no, you’re not going to get to see those.’ And so everybody on our side of the table asked, ‘Has Secretary Kerry seen these?’ ‘No, Secretary Kerry hasn’t seen them. No American is ever going to get to see them.’ ”

It turns out that only the two parties — the IAEA and Iran — get to see the actual agreements (though you can see a picture of Iranian and IAEA officials holding up what appear to be the secret accords here).


In other words, Obama is gambling our national security and handing over $150 billion in sanctions relief to Iran, based on secret agreements negotiated between the IAEA and Iran that no U.S. official has seen.

"Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. (Isaiah 13:15-18)


I get DOUBLE points for this.


1- I got to give you a bible lesson ( have you actually read it ? )


2- I got to pull a r3020 and change the subject for no apparent reason whatsover.

Re: Oh we would have been tough

Hey don, what happened to your post " Iran should have a nuclear bomb". I was enjoying making you look ridiculous. At the end of your last rant you called me a coward for not using my real name and I asked you if you were a coward when your screen name was. Kraft-T or if your just a hypocrite now? Still looking for a answer.

Info for Dozer876...

I have been around this site for about 12 years or so...
Don has been here longer than that.
Don Kraft has always been honest about his name and location, Renwick Iowa and now Bixby Oklahoma.
I would wager that his "handle" or name changes have been due to this site changing and updating over the years, not because he is hiding from anyone or anything. Hope that eases your mind regarding this.

Horton. If i had all the alcohol that I have consumed in the last year it would fit in a gallon milk jug. In fact our little stinct as winter texans require I quit the heavy boozing because it was conflicting with my meds. I will admit it was tasty and i didn't quit because I wanted to.
