There are 3 comments on POV: Iran Nuclear Accord Is a Good Deal

  1. Its sad the public doesnt see the real Iran. Iran is portrayed as the great enemy of the US, yet the people there are very Americanized. They also have a good amount of freedom, similar to Syria before the foreign Al Qaeda terrorists started attacking that country in hopes of setting up the Sharia Law and caliphate.

    Instead of sanctions, we should be helping Iran, along with Russia, fight these Al Qaeda, Chechen Mujaheddin(Boston Bombers), and North African (Benghazi) & Gulf State (15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi) terrorists in Syria; and prevent them from setting up Sharia Law in that state.

  2. The speed and almost reckless haste of negotiations is more an indication of the precarious nature of the President of the United States and his party in terms of their negative slide in opinion polls with the failure and criticism over its policies such as the Affordable Care Act. Presidents in trouble have often sought a quick home run politically with a perceived foreign policy victory. We don’t have to look much further than the previous President’s use of the “surge” in Afghanistan in an attempt to divert the public’s attention from the collapse of the financial markets at home.

  3. “Change Iran Now” offers a popular argument on the far right. Netanyahu and several American members of Congress have expressed this same explanation. ‘It’s a rouse by Obama to coverup problems with the ACA.’ Netanyahu simply labelled it an “historic mistake.” But I challenge each of them to explain why the five other signatories ‘signed’ on. Most of them respect Obama, but would never deliberately put their countries at risk to “make Barak look good.”

    Plus the suggestion that these several major powers don’t really know what they were doing both during the negotiations and the final signing, is naive at best, and not very reasonable at worst. They seem to be the same voice that has refused to support Obama in any effort that could possibly let him “look good.” And, conversely, make him “look bad” at any price.
