Nonsequitur: Negotiating with Iran
November 25, 2013
Is the newly negotiated nuclear interim accord with Iran a good agreement? I really don’t know. But I do know that due to President Obama’s failure to improve relations in the Middle East (during a time of rising democracy) and his failure to deal with Syria’s use of chemical weapons, we are negotiating from a position of weakness. Our enemies do not fear us. Our allies do not trust us. If Iran truly does “pause” its nuclear program for 6 months, I suppose that’s a good thing. But if Iran wouldn’t stop when President Bush was pressuring them strongly, why would they stop for Obama?
