Obama must like red lines. Obama blamed his Syrian red line on the USA people and the world -- he said it wasn't his idea. He has another red line this Saturday, November 30 for his web site to be functional .. he's been blaming the republicans for his healthcare.gov web site problems, and now Obama and several other countries have set a red line in 6 months for Iran.
I'm not sure what the red line here means -- except they want a permanent solution -- what the solution is we don't know -- limited nuclear power or full nuclear power or no nuclear power at all. The current agreement is only good for 6 months. Iran must be really happy -- $8 Billion for 6 months of showing UN Inspectors only the facilities that they want to show them. Can I get a deal like that? If only I could get my tax refund the same day as I sent my 1040 to the IRS.
No one other than Kerry, Obama, and Iran seem to like the deal. Democrats don't. Republicans don't. The Arab world doesn't. Israel doesn't. There is even talk today about Saudi Arabia starting work on their own nuclear bomb.
The strangest part of the whole deal seems to be the timing. Why this week? Why at 3am in the morning? Don't french speaking SOS sleep at 3am? What was so important that it had to be signed at 3am in the morning? Oh yeah, reporters did get a laugh out of Obama looking like he was talking to a crowd on Saturday night (the room was basically empty).
I guess only time will tell if the agreement is a good deal or not. Right now it seems only this guy is smiling . . .
