Lurch wows 'em with a war story:
(CNSNews.com) – In the closing minutes of the Iran nuclear negotiations in Vienna this week, Secretary of State John Kerry made a comment about having gone to war as a young man and not wanting to do so again, leaving everyone in the room, including the Iranians, with “tears in their eyes.”
Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman, the lead U.S. negotiator in the talks, recounted the moment while addressing the annual Generation Prague Conference at the State Department on Wednesday.
Awww. Tears in their eyes. John Kerry reporting for duty! God, I hate that pompous phony-war-hero, we-all-turned-into-baby-killers-testifying horse's ass.
The administration keeps throwing out that false dichotomy, either this lousy deal or war, when in fact nobody was calling for war. What was offered as an alternative was keeping and even strengthening the sanctions on Iran. You know, less money to creat mischief instead of the masive inusion they're gonna get now.
Of all the critiques of the Iran deak, this one, from someone who's actually read it, seems the most cogent to me.
My two cents, fwiw, is that, even if the deal does exactly what the administration says it will, why is it a bad idea for Iran to go nuclear now but a good thing if it can go nuclear in 10 years? Are they going to stop being a rogue state sponsor of terrorism and decide to become a "member of the world community"?
