cont “Top American and Israeli officials warn military action against Iranian nuclear facilities could ignite a catastrophic regional conflict and would be ineffective, in delaying Iran’s path to the bomb. Meir Dagan, who oversaw the Iran file as head of Israel’s external spy agency, the Mossad said an attack “would mean regional war, and you would give Iran the best possible reason to continue the nuclear program.” Michael Hayden, CIA under G.W. Bush warned that an attack would “guarantee what we're trying to prevent: Iran will spare nothing to build a nuclear weapon.” Acknowledging this, most critics of the Iran deal propose a third alternative: increase sanctions in hopes of forcing Iran to make concessions.” Easier said than done. “Whatever its deficiencies, the Iran deal places limits on Iran’s nuclear program and enhances oversight. Walk away from the agreement in hopes of getting tougher restrictions and you’re guaranteeing barely any restrictions on the program at all.”

Well, it is a done deal and we'll see if the Obama administration succeeds better than his predecessor once again.

Few know the sanctions on Iran were arranged by Obama with Europeans contingent on this deal coming into being. If it failed the Europeans would go back to trading as usual.

Thats right dummies. No sanctions at all and the US and Israel left with the war option or nothing.

One statement summarizes the whole situation - "we concede that perhaps this is the best deal that could be reached." It was not a solo act by the United States, a total of 6 nations were had input into the final arrangements. The only major objections are coming from a nation that was not involved. Our very wise and skilled president reached an agreement that was over 10 years in the making and he did not do it standing alone against the world. Of course it did not cover all the differences that exist between our countries but it was the best step possible to diminish a nuclear world.

Iran got exactly what they wanted. Our weak President missed out on an opportunity to insist that the 4 American hostages be released. That was probably our only chance to get all 4 out alive, yet no mention. God Bless those 4 American hostages and their families.
