POOR EXCUSE FOR A TERRIBLE OUTCOME

The objective was to prevent Iran from ever obtaining a Nuclear Weapon the outcome is a miserable failure and a total embarrassment to the ability of the USA to demonstrate statemanship in the Middle East or leadership anywhere in the regionally in the world with Russia and China looking down at us as if we are a third world country.

Containing Iran’s nuclear intoxication 

The president has settled for making Iran’s ability to gain nuclear arms more difficult, not impossible.

The Iran deal is about restraining a barbaric regime

If President Obama’s negotiated framework could deny a dangerous leader the bomb, go for it.

North Korea’s Real Lessons for Iran

By ROBERT L. GALLUCCI and JOEL S. WIT 

The ’94 nuclear deal didn’t last, but that doesn’t make it a failure


PRESIDENT OBAMA’S defense of his emerging nuclear deal with Iran as a “once in a lifetime opportunity” reminds his critics of an earlier landmark agreement, intended to end the threat of a nuclear-armed North Korea. 

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and others have argued that the eventual collapse of that agreement, resulting in North Korea’s building nuclear weapons, proves that a deal with Tehran is a big mistake. Those of us who negotiated the North Korea deal know that important lessons can be learned from that experience. But they are not the ones based on the critics’ fundamental misreading of history.
