It's all about trust, you know? Obama promised inspections of Iranian nuclear facilities "anywhere, anytime." He told the American public that's what the treaty said. But it turns out that the Iranians have to be notified a month in advance of an inspection, and they have to approve the visit. If they don't, all the signatories have to send members to a meeting to "discuss" the problem with the Iranians. So basically we are back to Obama's theory that the Iranians are really good guys and we can "trust them." After all, John Kerry is on a first name basis with their foreign minister, so what could go wrong?
Two days after the end of negotiations, the Iranians held one of their famous "Hate America" rallies with tens of thousands chanting "Death to Israel, Death to America." But I thought we were friends now!
You have to love a country that has the stones to call their head man "The Supreme Leader" and spends a good part of it's time calling for the eradication of Israel. I guess they have no sense of irony. But then, Islamic fundamentalists are not really known for their scintillating sense of humor.
Without a doubt, the West has been gulled again. This time it will have even more serious ramifications than before. Like Clinton and his deal with North Korea in 1996, Obama has given the Iranians the means and the time to build their bomb. Once they get it, what happens then? That's what the Turks, the Jordanians, the Saudis and others are wondering. Obama sent his Secretary of Defense to assure these guys they could "count on the U.S." Some newspapers in Turkey wondered if he would be stopping by to see Hosni Mubarak. But wait, that was the stalwart U.S. ally that Obama dumped when the Moslem Brotherhoood (co founders of Hezbollah) seized control of Egypt and condemned him to death. I wonder what point the Turks were making?
I don't suppose anyone needs to be a genius to figure out where this is leading. In a few years, the Iranians will announce they have the bomb, and what would anyone like to do about it? It worked for the North Koreans, and it will work for them. Unfortunately, while North Korea is ruled by acertifiably insane dwarf,
Kim does have an instinct for self preservation. But the Mullahs are in direct contact with Allah, who has a reputation for sending messages to the faithful that don't make sense to us Western Degenerates. That bodes ill for the Kaffirs, which includes us.
But then again, this is the same bunch that put the Syrians and the Iranians on the Human Rights Council.
Then there's the case of the " Commission of Inquiry" the U.N. pimped up after the last series of rocket attacks by Hamas on Israel, which not unreasonably drew an Israeli response.
The U.N. Commissioner who set up the "Commission of Inquiry" was British. I like the British, I genuinely do. But when it comes to Israel, you have to be careful of the British.
The Lord High Mucky Muck hand picked a British professor named William Schabas to chair the commission. Half way through the proceedings, it leaked that the commission was going to indict the Israelis for war crimes, but Hamas was going to get their little hands slapped and that was it.
Some reporters from the BBC (give credit where credit is due) checked out Professor Schabas and some interesting things came to light. For instance, he had long been a political activist associated with attacking Jews in general and Israel in particular. He had very close links to the PLO, stretching back for decades, and was actually on the PLO payroll as a "consultant." He had done work for Hamas in the past, and received payment for it.
