The Iran deal will just let Iran buy time to develop its systems and make a fool of obama.

I wish he would be this quick to accept responsibility for things like the Obamacare disaster, the deaths in Benghazi, the rise in the national debt, etc, etc, etc......

I hate to say this, but Americans are STUPID when it comes to the devious Muslim mind! Especially, this administration. This administration has never treated Israel as an ally as previous administrations have; the only true ally we have in the middle east! IMO, our closet Muslim president has always had the intention to render Israel moot and isolated in a sea of jihadest that surrounds them....and to our chagrin.

Our state department that's stuck in 'P' don't understand that there is nothing to talk about with the Taliban! How can any "Infidel" Western diplomat believe anything they say about "peace," since their definition of the word is likely much different than ours? The Koran teaches that it's permitted to LIE to Infidels in order to achieve Islamic goals. It's called "Al-Taqiyya," meaning: DECEPTION. This is of fundamental importance in Islam as illustrated by Raymond Ibrahim for the Middle East Forum; "Practically every Islamic sect agrees to it and practices it. We can go so far as to say that the practice of Tasqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream....Taqiyya is very prevalent Islamic politics, especially in the modern era."

Every peaceful overture that has been initiated by the West to the Muslim world has gone no where, except for Egypt under president Anwar Sadat, when he came to a peaceful accord with Israel.....Wise-Up!

the headline SHOULD read...
"peace in our time"
and when Netanyahu is proven correct, the media will immediately throw Kerry under the bus while maintaining Obama wasn't made aware...

No wonder Obama 'won' the Nobel Peace Prize. Who would have thought all we had to do was give Iran $7Billion and they would think about being our friend. Amazing.

This is not well thought out. Any strategy absent diplomacy in dealing with Iran leaves America and her Allies the only options of beginning the process of shifting the military apparatus in Afghanistan across the border into Iran for a full scale military invasion.

An invasion of this magnitude leaves the sanctions put in place by President Obama that brought Iran to it's knees to begin this process would have been a total waste of time.

How many Americans outside 3 Senators have an appetite for another invasion of a middle eastern country especially under sequester?

These are similar to the decisions Republicans made during the Bush Regime, where their mantra of "Deficits Don't Matter" prevailed, which left a $7 Trillion hole in the American National Debt.

George Bush showed the world only fools rush in to Middle Eastern Countries half baked.

If Israel feels so strongly about their position being a sovereign nation they are free and should take preemptive Actions to protect their interest, independent of what America and her Allies believe.

My question is what's holding Israel back?

I would show their resolve if for once their tough talk didn't include America somewhere in their statemens.

America's been engaged in the Middle East longer than it took to bring Germany to it's knees, how many more decades would you like to dedicate our youth to wars in the Middle East? Chasing a nation less radical band of rag tag Islamist broke America, where is the funding coming from for another invasion and 10 year plus engagement in Iran?
