“It is obvious to anyone who has their ear to the ground that a large majority of the American people want this deal, want a new chapter in the Middle East that does not include drone assassinations and people they know coming home with brain injuries and prosthetic limbs.
Still, having the Americans in this is evidence that the colonial mindset is not gone completely. The weaponry Iran needs to survive they will get. Obama and the other Countries are still trying to put the imperial stamp of approval on the Middle East with Kerry as a sort of ‘sad-sack’ Picot, shows that they simply cannot let these people solve their own issues.
The ME is shaking off the last 100 years of the same meddling that drew a crazy quilt of pseudo borders splitting ethnic and tribal boundaries. The IS is being instrumental in trying to adjust this anachronistic configuration and instead of looking at it as a way of shaking off the colonial stain, they’re bombing them. This has finally got the sleepy Saudis to wake up. and Iran is looking for a way to assure the survival of the Shia in an increasingly Sunni hegemon. The least America can do is butt-out. Iran is going to get the weaponry it needs to stave off the ISis good for the area. There is no American “win” here except for the old reasons…wait for it….oil.
The meddling Bush lanced this boil and a ham-handed Obama helped facilitate the pus to run into Egypt and Libya. At least have the grace to get out now. We know you ‘feel bad’ about it all but you’re now the proverbial ‘turd in the punchbowl’.
