Not to profile any one country, but I wouldn’t trust Iran anymore than I would trust Hitler, Stalin, Genghis Khan or a spokesman for Bobby Brown.
I would rather sign an agreement with Lucifer than the Iranians, who are so evil they don’t even believe in the devil.
Now it seems as if those diabolical Iranians finally may have gotten the world’s great powers to sign a deal that lets Iran enrich uranium.
Clever little infidels, aren’t they?
See what happens on a Sunday when the Eagles have a bye and U.S. diplomats have too much idle time?
Didn’t their mothers teach them that idle hands are the devil’s playground? Which is why I took up wood whittling. Even in the shower. But I digress.
For years the United States has pressed other countries to support and enforce U.N. Security Council resolutions that demand Iran stop all of its enrichment activities and enter negotiations.
This morning in Geneva, U.S. negotiators signed an interim agreement that would tolerate “a mutually agreed long-term comprehensive solution” for Iran.
The agreement says Iran and six world powers will negotiate over the next six months “would involve a mutually defined enrichment program with practical limits and transparency measures to ensure the peaceful nature of the program.”
The agreement represents a significant softening of earlier demands from the United States and even the Obama administration.
During his first term, President Obama offered Iran a deal that would have required Iran to import enriched nuclear fuel, but not allow Iran to make that fuel in facilities its government controlled.
And now today’s abrupt U-turn, which is illegal on most highways.
The agreement in Geneva is meant to build trust between Iran, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom as their diplomats hammer out a final agreement to end Iran’s quest for a nuclear weapon.
Trust Iran? Naïve. Stupid. Suicidal.
For now, the world is offering Iran modest sanctions relief in exchange for more transparency regarding its program and an agreement to cap its stockpile of enriched uranium during the talks.
However, it seems as if the Iranians are claiming the deal recognizes their right to enrich.
Senior administration officials say the deal does not recognize Iran’s right to enrichment and that limitations on Iran’s enrichment would be negotiated over the next six months.
But David Albright, a former weapons inspector and the president of the Institute for Science and International Security, said the document does not explicitly acknowledge that Iran has a right to enrich uranium, the process for creating the fuel needed for a peaceful nuclear reactor and also a nuclear weapon.
But he also said he was troubled that the language on enrichment was so vague.
President Obama rang up Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday to offer assurances that the allied country would be consulted in the Iranian nuclear deal.
Now that had to a phone call more awkward than calling your ex-mother-in-law to find out who your ex-wife is sleeping with.
Netanyahu hates Iran even more than Americans hate Obamacare.
Obama reportedly said that the U.S. “will remain firm in our commitment to Israel, which has good reason to be skeptical about Iran’s intentions.”
Earlier, hours after the agreement, Netanyahu denounced it as a “historic mistake” that will only slow down Iran’s production of a nuclear bomb.
“Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world made a significant step in obtaining the most dangerous weapons in the world,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu is a noted hawk but he knows only too well that Iran would love to turn Israel into so much camel dung.
Which would leave us in deep doo-doo as well.
After all, the Middle East is the tinderbox that could usher in Armageddon in a blink.
You don’t need the CIA to read up on the Biblical apocalyptic revelations.
