Why America's Allies are Stressed About the Iran Deal

    For whatever its worth, a majority of Americans support an interim deal with Iran (56% to 39%) – CNN/ORC International Poll.

    Or, alternatively, Washington could fail to reach an agreement and Iran could go on to build nukes, control Syria, and pursue hegemonic ambitions anyway.

    “For this reason, we must think carefully — and coordinate with allies — about how we can continue to contain and combat Iran’s malignant regional influence, should a nuclear agreement be reached.”
    Allies? What allies?

    The amazing thing to me is that people believe that Iran will live up to a deal in which they allegedly give up nukes. North Korea proved their is no downside to breaking those kinds of agreements with the U.S. There is only one thing that will prevent the Iranians from developing nukes and that is Israeli bombs. However, it is possible that we/they don’t know where all the underground facilities are, so that may not even work. A bad, bad situation, but we shouldn’t make it worse by entering in to deals with liars. Let’s at least have policy based on reality. There are no good answers – only less bad answers.
