As outlined by President Obama at a news conference this afternoon, the tentative nuclear agreement reached with Iran appears to include significant concessions that will achieve the most important metric demanded by the United States and its diplomatic partners — namely, to extend the “breakout” period required for Tehran to develop a single nuclear weapon. The full deal is complex and yet to be completed, but the highlights seem to answer the most pressing concerns about a sustainable and verifiable non-proliferation regime.

According to the president and negotiators in Lausanne, Switzerland, where the talks had continued into the early hours today, the government of Iran has agreed to cut its uranium-enriching centrifuges from 19,000 to 6,000, greatly reducing its capacity to rapidly produce weapons-grade material. For the next 10 years, only about 5,000 of those centrifuges will actually operate at all. The excess centrifuges and related machinery will be held in storage monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency, to be used only for replacement parts — and Iran will construct no new uranium-enrichment facilities for the duration of the agreement.

Taken together, these changes are expected to extend the “breakout” period from a few months to at least one year.

Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif also agreed that his country would not enrich uranium over 3.67 percent for the next 15 years and will slash its present inventory of more than 20 tons of low-enriched uranium to well under a ton for the same duration. Moreover, Zarif and his team conceded that Iran will ship all the spent fuel from its heavy-water reactor at Arak, which might have been reprocessed into bomb-ready plutonium, to other countries for reprocessing — a sticking point earlier in the talks. The Arak facility itself will undergo a reconstruction process — including the destruction of the reactor’s original core — that will make production of plutonium there impossible, and Iran will construct no further plants capable of producing plutonium for at least 15 years.

The deal provides for continuous IAEA monitoring of all Iranian nuclear reactors and programs — described by Obama as the most intensive ever undertaken — and for sanctions relief that will only begin when Iran has met all of its initial commitments to restructure and dismantle its weapons-related equipment and programs. It also includes restrictions on certain kinds of conventional weapons and technology.

As the president said with his usual lucidity, these negotiations — and their ultimate success — are an opportunity of historic significance to reduce the risks of war and proliferation.

But the Iran talks also represent a chance to promote peaceful change in that unfortunate country, whose people desperately hope that the Rouhani government can progress toward normal relationships with Western countries, especially the United States. The best guarantees of peace and security — for the world, the U.S., the Mideast region, and yes, Israel — will be realized by strengthening the forces in Tehran that seek to transcend Iran’s status as diplomatic and economic pariah.

Partisan efforts to scuttle the nascent bargain have long been underway, and will now intensify. The perpetrators are almost exclusively “experts” who were wrong about very similar issues concerning the supposed nuclear ambitions of Iraq — and led us into a pointless war that cost many thousands of lives and trillions of dollars. The American people support President Obama’s use of internationally backed sanctions to encourage a negotiated agreement rather than armed conflict — and his approach is proving more effective than the belligerent attitude promoted by his critics over the past decade. Let us hope that he and Secretary of State John Kerry, both of whom deserve enormous credit for their moral courage and pertinacity, will be able to bring forth a signed agreement by the next deadline in late June.

  1. This is a really big deal, but it will not be enought to satisfy the blood happy members of the republicans in Congress. Nothing short of more young men and women being sacrificed to satisfy that blood lust will be accepted by the crazy portion of the party. Besides they can’t allow this administration and our dark skinned president an accomplishment. Giving peace a chance is not well thought of during these strange times we are witness to.

    • Yes, you are exactly right. I can just imagine the spin FOX is going to give this to its eagerly compliant followers

    • And you know this because?? Barak and Kerry provided the number and location of all of Israel nuclear inventory to ink the deal

    • They are blood thirsty – to an extent.

      The extent is that no one in their extended families ever be required to serve in the Armed Forces of this Nation.

      They are blood thirsty as long as the American Blood continues to come from the less than 1% of the lower middle class that raise their hands to support this Nation. The other 99% wouldn’t rise off their yellow asses to defend this Country if ISIS was marching down their Street.

      America has a pitiful pile of Crap that has infilltrated the ranks of our Representatives and Senators.

      Cut their Salaries and perks in half and they would all desert like rats from a sinking Ship. But rest assured – they would not defend this Country.

    • Why don’t we ask the embassy hostages how they feel about it. Their are over 3000 people from 911 who might want to have a say in the deal. If they were still alive. I am sure that with your advanced wisdom you know better.

      • Wow, do you really believe that Iran was involved in 9/11? It would be interesting to hear what the remaining hostages from the late Carter and early Reagan period would have to say. My guess would be that since these were folks who spent much of their adult lives working for the diplomatic corps they would have a positive view. Peace over war was part of the their job description.

        • Where do you come up with these comments? 911= Muslims. Embassy hostages = Muslims. Death to the great Satan = Muslims. Your guess? Peace over war. Your understanding of what career diplomats do is zero.

          • Are you still trying to conflate ones religion with involvement with 9/11? Iran had nothing to do with that terrible act. Neither you or I have a clue how our hostages from Tehran will react to this new agreement. I suggest they might approve since that is part of the job description. Are you trying to say that ‘peace over war’ is not something they would prefer? The diplomatic corps is there to represent the best of our country where ever they are posted. They are professionals and are our interface with the leadership and people of foreign countries. From your comment it is hard to grasp just what you think they are suppose to accomplish. But hey, thanks for playing.

          • A religious belief did not have anything to do with 911??? As to the hostages, Quit guessing, you don’t know, that is why I said we should ask them. Embassy workers are given diplomatic status but they are still just office workers with a good paying jobs and benefits. They are not diplomats. Have you ever dealt with embassy workers? I have and it is the pits. Where do you get these idea’s? I enjoy giving people a hard time and laughing at their misinformed idea’s. My wife’s brother was retarded due to an accident and I will not under any circumstances make light of a mentally handicapped person. I think any more communication between us should cease.Thank you and have a happy Easter.

          • How can I not take the advice of a sage such as yourself. Have a nice weekend. Again, nice try on Iran. Conflation in indeed fun sometimes, but it does not replace cold hard facts.

    • One of the greatest differences between Republican and Democratic policies and actions when it comes to foreign policy, is the focus on military “solutions” by the former, and the focus on diplomatic breakthroughs by the latter. Regardless of whether or not the final product is perfect, the fact that Iran agreed to postpone the development of nuclear weapons by 15, or more, as a condition to lifting punitive sanctions is a big deal that will result in a more peaceful and stable Persian Gulf. Needless to say, those who prefer chaos to justify invasions, huge military budgets, and advance the interests of the arms industry, will belittle this achievement and will demonize it until the 2016 election, without ever offering an alternative.
      President Obama, and his administration, deserve credit for this achievement, as well as for their ability to form a coalition to legitimize it at an international level.

    • Oh for God’s sake give it a rest, ANYONE who thinks dropping bombs and starting wars to prove nothing, solve nothing, gain the hatred of millions more is more than evil and if the United States does not STOP doing it, we will rightfully become the most hated bullies in the world!!!! The President knows like all truly wise men, diplomacy and respect for individuals is far more difficult and far more respected by the world than anything the deplorable Bush/Cheney ever did starting wars based on lies and blind arrogance and hubris. You want to hate the President be my guest, like all of you right wing haters/nuts “what’s new”……it’s all you EVER do, SOOOOOO tiresome, SOOOOO predictable, and oh SOOOOO contemptible!

  2. If this initial information is correct, Bibi, Boehner, Rubio, Cruz, and the rest of Radical Right will not be happy.

    • Who cares they are happy or not? The whole world cares only to see PEACE is installed in every part of its corners.

  3. This is a win and if anyone thinks differently then they are a world class idiot. We can not solve anything by war and the mentality of my guns are bigger than yours.
    The U.S. was foolish with the “shock and awe” tactics of the past that left this area of the world to be more unsettled than before our invasion. AND it’s true that the right will probably do everything in their power to derail this because – 1 – the right LOVES to send out troops to war to protect Bush/Cheney oil investments (then cut the troops benefits & pay when they return) and – 2- the right loves to sell guns and weapons to anyone who will buy them – AND – 3 – probably the most important reason the right will seek to destroy this agreement is that our current twice elected none-white president is at the helm. I’m sure they all are asking – How dare he??!!
    Good for Obama and Kerry! God Bless America and I will pray for all the blood thirsty Americans who think this isn’t a huge step in the right direction!

    • Kudos to President Obama and the 5 other nations who were in sync with the fact that sanctions don’t work. With sanctions only the people (who have little say in the matter) suffer, while a country’s leaders will always get their goods and services. As it has never before been tried in quite this manner, it deserves a chance to succeed. After all, the old methods are tried again and again, with no success. Let’s pray the GOP sees the good sense in standing down in order to see the outcome.

  4. Despite the GOP and the hate mongers that follow them, this President will stand the test of time and history long after they are gone. They are a laughable group of hypocrites that we will have to endure for a while yet.

    Eisenhower said “beware the military industrial complex”. These are the people who would rather drop bombs than negotiate. Our sons and daughters lives mean nothing to them. Profit is all that matters. The GOP is bought and paid for by these monsters…for once they have been thwarted…..The world will thank us for this bloodless victory.

    • Remember the champions of Iraq War [GWB, Cheney, Richard Perle ….]? None of them sent their loved ones to the war zone. They wanted middle class Americans to sacrifice their blood while they raked in billions in their bank accounts. Now they want the same with Iran as the next venue.

    • Do you actually believe Islam is going to leave you in peace? If the leaders of Islam can get to the position they want they will turn the Oceans red,

      • Calm down cowboy…can we at least get to see what the final deal encompasses or do you want to start the bombing campaign now…those of us with sons and daughters in the military kind of want to wait until at least they sign the final deal and the ink dries before we decide it will not work and put our children at risk…is that ok with you?

        • They have already stated what they want to do to America and for some reason you don’t believe them. You for some reason think the military will be the only people involved? We are talking thermal nuclear bombs mounted on ballistic missiles rearranging American real estate. I don’t think the ink is going to help much. Is that okay with you?

  5. TO THE EXTENT that this is what it appears to be, it is a great thing. NO amount of diplomacy can overcome malevolent intentions; only time will tell what the truth really is.

  6. JUST ASKING

    Is a treaty with Iran surrender to the acceptance of a
    nuclear terrorist nation?

    Does Iran need peaceful nuclear power for energy? Is Iran the number one exporter of
    terrorism? Does Iran have territorial
    ambitions in Iraq? Does Iran have the stated goal of wiping Israel off the
    map? Does Iran have the stated goal of
    destroying infidel Western Civilization?
    Would a nuclear Iran trigger a nuclear arms race in the Middle East?

    Are 45% of Iranians under 24 years old? Do millions of Iranian youth surf the web,
    love rock n roll, love western jeans, rebel against their parents, and wish to
    be free to follow their dreams? Do many
    of these occasionally take to the streets to protest, facing imprisonment,
    torture, and death?

    Does Sharia law have a doctrine of “taqiyya” (deceit)? Does taqiyya limit treaties to ten
    years? Does the doctrine of deceit allow
    treaties to be repudiated unilaterally before they expire, should it appear
    more profitable for Islam to resume the conflict? Is it naïve to trust any entity practicing
    Sharia Law “taqiyya”?

    Are there two clocks
    running in Iran, the atomic bomb clock and the regime change clock? Does easing sanctions strengthen the ruling
    class, better enabling them to suppress the rebellious youth, finance and
    export terrorism, and secretly accelerate the bomb?

    Do strict sanctions no matter how imperfect,
    accelerate the regime change clock? Do
    constantly delayed negotiations with eased sanctions to show good faith,
    accelerate the atomic bomb clock? Does a
    “deal” for the sake of a deal enhance the safety of Western Civilization?

    JUST ASKING,

    Luis F. Villar, M.D., F.A.C.S.

  7. The black POTUS is lying through his Friggin’ teeth again….and when IRAN gets the BOMB and uses it on Israel or the USA…the black POTUS gets his also by millions of people he lied to about everything and anything he ever said to cause this dire chaos.

        • ALL The Facts By Glenn Kessler March 13 Wash Post

          In 1994, the Bill Clinton administration negotiated an agreement with North Korea to essentially freeze its nascent nuclear program in exchange for the eventual construction of two light-water reactors. North Korea’s program was clearly created to churn out nuclear weapons; the reactor at Yongbyon was not connected to the power grid and appeared only designed to produce plutonium, a key ingredient for nuclear weapons. The theory of the deal was that, with the plant shuttered and the plutonium under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), North Korea would not be able to produce a bomb. “It only took North Korea 12 years to get a nuclear weapon from the time we reached the Agreed Framework in 1994 to the time they tested their first weapon in 2006.” Yet the North Korea example certainly demonstrates how a new administration, skeptical of such an arms-control agreement, could take steps to undermine and eventually terminate it. For obvious political reasons, Clinton chose not to obtain congressional approval. But without an early buy-in from congressional Republicans, once a president from a different party was elected, the North Korea accord was set on a path to failure.

            In retrospect:

            No sane country/person/people desires WAR and killing.

            Albeit pursuant to warlike rhetoric from a terroristic nation, IRAN won’t change it’s ideology it has had for hundreds of years and/or minatory words to Israel and the USA; DEATH.

            If IRAN obtains the means (whenever) to bomb Israel, do you or anyone think for a moment they would not bomb them?

            Psychology tells us, if someone says they are going to commit a heinous act (suicide) BELIEVE THEM, before they do it.

            Reflect on the current co-pilot who killed 150 people and doctors knew of his destructive demeanor and thoughts.

            Proof That America Was Founded As A Christian Nation. VERITAS

            America was founded on three documents: The Declaration of Independence; The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783, and the Constitution. These documents give conclusive proof that America is a Christian nation. One does not need a law degree or a degree in history to grasp this truth. It is obvious to anyone who does not have an agenda. Let us review the documents and show this proof.

            Declaration of Independence:

            The Declaration has many references to God throughout the document. The most famous one is that men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.

            “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”

            Here are more references to God found in the document:

            Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”

            Appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World”

            With a firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence”

            The Declaration of Independence does not identify the God whom they are addressing. This could be left open to interpretation and opinion.

            The Constitution:

            The body of the Constitution makes no reference to God. The Constitution honors the Christian Sabbath. The President was given 10 days to sign a bill into law. The counting of the 10 days does not include the Sabbath. This is found in Article 1, Section 7, and Clause 2 which in part follows:

            “If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law,”

            When the Constitution was completed on September 17, 1787, it was signed by the delegates then to be satisfied by the states. The delegates signed the Constitution in the “Year of our Lord.” This is a direct reference to Christianity. This is found in Article 7 which in part follows:

            “Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names, GO WASHINGTON–Presidt. and deputy from Virginia”

            The Paris Peace Treaty of 1783:

            The Paris Peace Treaty was the document which formally ended the Revolution and granted the United States independence from Great Britain. In a real sense, the United States formally became a nation on September 3, 1783.

            When the United States became a nation, it was done in the “name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” The preamble to this Treat states it is based upon the “Holy and undivided Trinity.” The concept of the holy Trinity is unique to Christianity. This statement means the United States was founded on the Christian faith. The complete Preamble follows:

            “In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity”

            The Treaty then ends just like the Constitution with a statement it is being signed in the “Year of our Lord.” The witnesses representing the United States were John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and D. Hartley. The section in part follows:

            “In witness whereof we the undersigned, their ministers plenipotentiary, have in their name and in virtue of our full powers, signed with our hands the present definitive treaty and caused the seals of our arms to be affixed thereto.Done at Paris, this third day of September in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-three”

            D. HARTLEY JOHN ADAMS B. FRANKLIN JOHN JAY

            When this concept is applied to the Declaration of Independence, it is clear the reference to “All men are created equal,” was about the holy Trinity. The people of the United States are endowed by their Creator, the holy Trinity, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

            The God of the Bible is whom the United States is based upon. The unalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness come from the Judeo/Christian God and no one else. He is the Rock of our Republic.

            Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

            In retrospect, if you deny the existence of the truth in these three documents you are either mentally disturbed, pure evil, and/or a communist, etcetera.

            President Adams June 10, 1797, explicitly reveals the secular nature of the U.S. government to a foreign nation. Tthe Treaty of Tripoli. In Article 11, it states:

            “As the Government of the United States of America is
            not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any

          • Yeah we know all about it…………
            Mar 16th, 2015 | By Dr. Jim Eckman | Category: Featured Issues

            So……

            Why does Obama believe he can lure Iran into switching its allegiances? Does he really believe that Iran will abandon its deep-seated commitment to its Shiite religion and ideology? Does he really believe that Iran will now be driven by pragmatic, non-ideological diplomacy? Brooks writes that “It could be that Iran finances terrorist groups and destabilizes regimes like Yemen’s and Morocco’s for a reason. It could be that Iran’s leaders really believe what they say. It could be that Iranian leaders are as apocalyptically motivated, paranoid and dogmatically anti-American as their pronouncements suggest they are. It could be that Iran will be as destabilizing and hegemonically inclined as all its recent actions suggest. Iran may be especially radical if the whole region gets further inflamed by Sunni-Shia rivalry or descends into greater and greater Islamic State-style fanaticism . . . If the Iranian leaders believe what they say, then United States policy should be exactly the opposite of the one now being pursued. Instead of embracing and enriching Iran, sanctions should be toughened to further isolate and weaken it. Instead of accepting a nuclear capacity, eliminating that capacity should be restored as the centerpiece of American policy.” Instead of alienating all of our friends over our Iranian policy, we should be strengthening and cultivating those relationships as a bulwark against the growing militancy of Iran. Obama is choosing not to pursue that goal; instead, he is willing to ultimately remove all sanctions over time in exchange for this spurious, dangerous agreement.

          • Yes, you are right about President Obama not wanting to choose to be closed minded and reign evil, I do believe the Lord is on his side.

          • If so……….ponder this JM……

            Paradoxical conundrum:

            Everything GOD does is good, even if it’s bad; hence POTUS Obama.

            An enigma by GOD….who is in control.

            Faith in GOD is the supreme test for humanity.

        • You’ve already typed that once nim nod, some of us may be deaf but we can certainly read and as such read this.. The Iranians build ONE nuclear weapon, uses it on who? Israel? The US of A? Okay.. next move ten other countries will obliterate them off the face of the earth. You know this, I know this and certainly Iran knows this because we ALL have more than one, so do you really think their THAT suicidal? The rulers won’t have a hole to crawl in and they above all others do not want to die so building one bomb only gives them a pacifier just as it did for North Korea.. They wouldn’t dare use it even if they wanted to.. Just.. Like.. North.. Korea! It would be the end of life as THEY know it. It’s really nothing more than a bargaining chip as it has always been.. They know there will be no virgins waiting for them on the other side just as they know one bomb won’t make them king of the world. They want to live and no country on earth would allow that if they chose to use the one and only popper they would make. Your running scared over this one bomb when you should be fearful of the country that possesses over three hundred of them.

          • Some people can think out of the box, some can’t.

            Other’s are trained to think outside of the circle, I know you don’t.

        • Who was President in 2006? Who failed to STUDY the details of the 1994 agreement & ensure they’re adhered to? Who tried to bring them into the community of international cooperation? Who insulted & isolated them? Please, study some factual & real events, instead of… whatever this is U seem to hold as ‘reality.’ What U’r talking about, U got from those who actually do hate this nation & at some point, U’r going to realize again, too late, that conservatives/Republican’s are against U, this nation & are trying to destroy our Democracy – w/U’r help it seems! Please!!! Obama didn’t do this!!! This happened – AS U POINT OUT – by 2006. From a nation that saw US attack innocent, defenseless nations (Afghanistan & Iraq) & saw US as… what?! Dude, use U’r head!!! Think!!! U have the info in front of U!!! What monitoring equipment do U think was dismantled in N. Korea in 2002/’03 & who do U think convinced N. Korea to INSTALL IT?!?!

            In retrospect:

            No sane country/person/people desires WAR and killing.

            Albeit pursuant to warlike rhetoric from a terroristic nation, IRAN won’t change it’s ideology it has had for hundreds of years and/or minatory words to Israel and the USA; DEATH.

            If IRAN obtains the means (whenever) to bomb Israel, do you or anyone think for a moment they would not bomb them?

            Psychology tells us, if someone says they are going to commit a heinous act (suicide) BELIEVE THEM, before they do it.

            Reflect on the current co-pilot who killed 150 people and doctors knew of his destructive demeanor and thoughts.

            Published: 09/11/2012 (would someone describe this person POTUS OBAMA as sane?)

            A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House.

            “It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan, who was a .gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator.

            “Nobody who knew Obama in the gay bar scene thought he could possibly be president,” said DuJan.

            DuJan, founder and editor of the Hillary Clinton-supporting website HillBuzz.org, he has first-hand information from two different sources that “Obama was personally involved in the gay bar scene.”

        Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. – Sura 2:98

        On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. – Sura 2:161

        Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. – 2:191

        Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme. (different translation: ) Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s entirely. – Sura 2:193 and 8:39

        Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. – 2:216

        (different translation: ) Prescribed for you is fighting, though it is hateful to you.

        ….. martyrs…. Enter heaven – Surah 3:140-43

        If you should die or be killed in the cause of Allah, His mercy and forgiveness would surely be better than all they riches they amass. If you should die or be killed, before Him you shall all be gathered. – 3:157-8

        You must not think that those who were slain in the cause of Allah are dead. They are alive, and well-provided for by their Lord. – Surah 3:169-71

        Let those fight in the cause of God who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the cause of God, whether he is slain or victorious, soon we shall give him a great reward. – Surah 4:74

        Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. – 4:76

        But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. – 4:89

        Therefore, we stirred among them enmity and hatred, which shall endure till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will declare to them all that they have done. – 5:14

        O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people. – 5:54

        Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme – 8:39

          • MAINE COACH FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER SHARING FACEBOOK POST ABOUT ISLAM

            APRIL 7, 2015 BY B. CHRISTOPHER AGEE

            Dear Mr. Obama:

            Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?

            Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?

            Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?

            Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?

            Have you seen Muslims shak[ing] hands with Muslim Girl Scouts?

            Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

            Have your seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life????

            The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself WHY???

            Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

            Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

            Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United States Constitution? Declaration of Independence? Bill of Rights? Didn’t think so.

            Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England? No.

            Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

            Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present. There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.
            Ditto AL………your ruse won’t fly….told U U can’t think out of the box, much less the circle.

            Here’s a couple of conundrums 4 U to ponder, and U won ‘t understand……….betcha.

            2 persons on a high cliff, one jumps off and dies, who
            jumped first?

            How high does a kite have to fly to see it’s shadow on the moon?

            What 3 words describe invisibility?
            Furthermore, here’s your buddies friends….
            Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

            Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazis in killing Jews.

            Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East.

            No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

            And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage” Muslims have here in America…

            Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.

            And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major, a doctor and a psychiatrist, who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America!

            P.S. Now, you can add the Boston Marathon bombings, too…

  8. READ BETWEEN THE LINES…OR AT LEAST THE LINES

    Sometimes the real intentions of who is speaking or writing are not clear…until you dig a little deeper. If you are reading this you just might wonder what my agenda is. Well I don’t believe you have to read between the lines here…because I will tell you. I produce music that advocates progressive change in the USA. To promote and support the music I write, record and attempt to SELL, I do interviews, blog and anything I can to get that message out. I can tell you point blank at this point what music I sell, does not come close to what I spend. I promise that should that change charities will be the biggest beneficiaries. Now…You can believe that or not.

    But lets move of to people with much more sinister agendas. Take for example all of those GOP’ers up in arms about the proposed new deal between Iran and the world, and the possible lifting of sanctions (should Iran keep to it’s part of the bargain). Why would the GOP and their minions not support a peaceful resolution and less nukes, besides their obvious hate for the guy who initiated it. I know…we can’t trust Iran and this deal with them will lead to disaster. I guess, with a son in the military I kind of want to see the final deal and judge then if it is a good one, to keep him out of harms way. We have so much to lose if the deal is scuttled, or Iran cheats etc…that is a very valid reason to be wary…But it is a deal that did not cost blood ….and lots of people lie yet we still make deals and they keep to them…hell the USA lies and people still deal with us…trusting we will keep our word. Like…we won’t spy on our allies….oops I guess we did …but we won’t anymore ok…Deal. WMD’s in Iraq…oops oh well ….new deal.

    Then I read between the lines….who has the most to lose if this deal WORKS. Well low and behold, it is the big oil Corp/1% like the Bush family and others that support and contribute to the GOP. Why…because the biggest sanction to be lifted is the one banning the purchase of Iranian oil by the member countries of the UN. Soooooo…big corporate oil producers, at a time their product is already being price squeezed, will have to deal with a new competitor in the oil selling business.

    Somehow THAT seems to me to be the REAL issue the corp/1% and have against this deal. The same old objection they have against so many things that look good for the people and the rest of the world. THEY WILL LOSE MONEY. It always seems to come down to that. But the fear they try to instill in us, and especially their loyal duped followers is always crafted to make it look as profit is not the motive behind everything they do. It is their American spirit and love for the country. Hogwash. it the love and pursuit of money. Ok …so what other evidence do I have?

    In a similar vein, Ted Cruz just invested $100,000 in pipeline stocks. He still thinks he and his cronies will be able to push Keystone through by hook or crook…mostly crook. But here is one BIG problem…will it even be worth it to the Canadians backing this environmentally harmful pipeline through OUR country to even want to do so if this deal works and the price of oil falls lower because Iran is now in the oil selling business again. Hell no, and Cruz will take a bath on his stocks. Iranians keeping their end of the bargin and selling their oil….great for us little people. Bloodless resolution to a problem the hawks and oil barons got us into in the first place….and possible even lower gas prices for a long while. Not so good for Corp/1% oil masters. Bummer for them. Great for us.

    I know the religious right and the Republican base will come up with every argument under the sun. The Religious Right have to…the GOP is all they have left ….although how they were recently thrown under the bus in Indiana should give them pause. But here is the problem…Iran is a country with people in it…people that want to just live. Their leaders PROMISED they would deliver salvation from the horrible conditions they have had to endure as a rogue nation. They just might have decided if we can’t beat them we might have to join them….or face untenable civil unrest. It’s a possibility, and I for one want to see.

    So I will give this deal a chance. What is my alternative. Listen and follow the guys I ALREADY know have a agenda that requires this deal to fail so they can get richer. I think not.

      The Facts By Glenn Kessler March 13 Wash Post

      In 1994, the Bill Clinton administration negotiated an agreement with North Korea to essentially freeze its nascent nuclear program in exchange for the eventual construction of two light-water reactors. North Korea’s program was clearly created to churn out nuclear weapons; the reactor at Yongbyon was not connected to the power grid and appeared only designed to produce plutonium, a key ingredient for nuclear weapons. The theory of the deal was that, with the plant shuttered and the plutonium under the close watch of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), North Korea would not be able to produce a bomb. “It only took North Korea 12 years to get a nuclear weapon from the time we reached the Agreed Framework in 1994 to the time they tested their first weapon in 2006.” Yet the North Korea example certainly demonstrates how a new administration, skeptical of such an arms-control agreement, could take steps to undermine and eventually terminate it. For obvious political reasons, Clinton chose not to obtain congressional approval. But without an early buy-in from congressional Republicans, once a president from a different party was elected, the North Korea accord was set on a path to failure.

Did U or not? I have it & can loan it – heck – GIVE IT to U, since U don’t probably read much but the comics anyway…

          • It says nothing. There are NO facts. No information proving U even have a brain. Giving up in debate? It shows a lack of interest & an uninformed background on subjects debated. FOX assertions don’t count. I’ve heard every one of them, as rehashed in your own… ‘assertions’ – & they’ve been proven to be lies. Please bring facts.

            Iran says no deal without ‘immediate’ sanctions relief

            Supreme leader stops short of endorsing deal, while president says sanctions must be lifted as soon as deal is signed.

            09 Apr 2015 14:23 GMT | Politics, Middle East

            Iran and six world powers reached an agreement last week aimed at keeping Tehran from being able to develop a nuclear weapon [AP]

            Iran’s Supreme Leader has stopped short of giving his endorsement to the framework nuclear deal struck last week between Tehran and world powers, while the country’s elected leader warned separately that his country would not sign a final deal unless economic sanctions were lifted immediately.

            Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in remarks on Thursday that he “is neither for nor against” the deal, but that he continues to support the country’s negotiators.

            His statement came as President Hassan Rouhani said at a ceremony in Tehran that all economic sanctions should be removed as soon as a deal was reached.

            “We will not sign any agreement, unless all economic sanctions are totally lifted on the first day of the implementation of the deal,” he declared.

            Rouhani spoke during a ceremony marking Iran’s Nuclear Technology Day, which celebrates the country’s nuclear achievements.

            In an interview with Al Jazeera, Mahjoob Zweiri, a Middle East expert, said that the statements of Khamenei and Rouhani represent a negotiating strategy that put pressure on the US to make more concessions ahead of the June 30 deadline.

            Zweiri said that both leaders were also trying to assure Iranians that they were trying to preserve the country’s right to pursue a nuclear programme.

            Why does Obama believe he can lure Iran into switching its allegiances? Does he really believe that Iran will abandon its deep-seated commitment to its Shiite religion and ideology? Does he really believe that Iran will now be driven by pragmatic, non-ideological diplomacy? Brooks writes that “It could be that Iran finances terrorist groups and destabilizes regimes like Yemen’s and Morocco’s for a reason. It could be that Iran’s leaders really believe what they say. It could be that Iranian leaders are as apocalyptically motivated, paranoid and dogmatically anti-American as their pronouncements suggest they are. It could be that Iran will be as destabilizing and hegemonically inclined as all its recent actions suggest. Iran may be especially radical if the whole region gets further inflamed by Sunni-Shia rivalry or descends into greater and greater Islamic State-style fanaticism . . . If the Iranian leaders believe what they say, then United States policy should be exactly the opposite of the one now being pursued. Instead of embracing and enriching Iran, sanctions should be toughened to further isolate and weaken it. Instead of accepting a nuclear capacity, eliminating that capacity should be restored as the centerpiece of American policy.” Instead of alienating all of our friends over our Iranian policy, we should be strengthening and cultivating those relationships as a bulwark against the growing militancy of Iran. Obama is choosing not to pursue that goal; instead, he is willing to ultimately remove all sanctions over time in exchange for this spurious, dangerous agreement.

          • Interestingly, the Iranian people want the same thing we Americans want – to coexist peacefully w/our neighbors. No one has bothered, therefore, to address the Iranian temperment of their thwarted 1953 election & subsequent reign of terror under the Shaw. Our own nation has, to my personal knowledge, not yet accepted any responsibility for intervening in the affairs of a sovereign nation. Might that be an underlying cause of ‘militancy’ among Iranians? We may want to ask them sometime. Meanwhile, this is STILL a move in the right direction, as far as I & many in this nation & around the world are concerned…

            In retrospect:

            No sane country/person/people desires WAR and killing.

            Albeit pursuant to warlike rhetoric from a terroristic nation, IRAN won’t change it’s ideology it has had for hundreds of years and/or minatory words to Israel and the USA; DEATH.

            If IRAN obtains the means (whenever) to bomb Israel, do you or anyone think for a moment they would not bomb them?

            Psychology tells us, if someone says they are going to commit a heinous act (suicide) BELIEVE THEM, before they do it.

            Reflect on the current co-pilot who killed 150 people and doctors knew of his destructive demeanor and thoughts.

            Hence, when a horse flees from the barn, shutting the doors is too late and its deleterious consequences for all of the world.

  9. This is the precise indicator that if the President ‘decides’ to be autonomous, determined & focused on Liberal/Progressive imperatives, he can get significant policy initiatives achieved! Not doing so from the beginning, as most w/in his party implored him to assertively do, resulted in the absolute MESS the Middle East degenerated to. And somehow, having the Clinton administration as guide-posts, means that he actively & consistently ignored using Liberal initiatives to achieve policy successes over the years. But as they say, ‘better late than…’ is still as true here than anywhere… or even EVERYWHERE!!!
