Giving Peace Yet Another Chance

Let's hear that old refrain" "Aaaallll we are saaaaying ...."

It is never a good omen when a president of the United States is chanting old hippie slogans, but it is especially worrisome in response to the martial chest-thumping of theocratic nutcases intent on acquiring nuclear weapons. There is still a chance that Congress might scuttle the deal by continuing sanctions, as even some Democrats are unimpressed with the plan, and we hope they will do so despite the White House warnings that it would provoke a war. Allowing an apocalyptic suicide cult to set off a nuclear arms race in a traditionally bellicose region gripped by ancient and irrational hatreds cannot end well, and doing so for the sake of giving peace a chance makes no sense.

Well said, Bud.

If a non nuclear Iran can't be peaceful, I'm not sure having The Bomb would make them so. Maybe the Prez should channel John Lennon and see if he has any more ideas, just in case this deal goes bad.
