#1 "Sounds like Obama decided to enter the Persian nuclear bazaar to haggle with the masters of negotiation and has had his head handed to him,"...yeah, we all could have predicted that.

The ONE is such a light weight. He thinks he is so much smarter than anyone else and he has this big ego about how persuasive he is.

Trouble is he's a Chihuahua in a pit bull kennel with the Iranians.

I guess he never heard the old saying about rug dealers.

#3 It would be awfully nice if, in the next week or so, Israel does what must be done in the direction of Iran. It would be even nicer if every single Republican legislator at all levels from the merest unincorporated village to the united Senators in Washington reared up on their hind legs to condemn this betrayal of israel in the strongest terms. Let the Democrats scramble to keep up on this issue, too, and leave the president seeing himself standing alone in spotlight.

#4 (Valerie) Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran, to multiple-racial parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz in 1950, as part of a program where American physicians and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries' health and farming efforts. When she was five, the family moved to London for one year, later moving to Chicago in 1963

#5 So Obama was willing to negotiate, compromise and give in first to Iranians. But not republicans. Maybe ted Cruz should hire the Ayatollah to negotiate the next debt ceiling crisis.

#6 Well, Airandee, you remember the Dims didn't want to negotiate with the "terrorist" Pubs, only the new, friendlier, Iranians... [gag]

#7 Egyptions kicked his Muslim Bros out of office in a flash, Syria's Pencil Neck is still king of Damascus and now he supports Iran. Yep. Not a good omen for the Mullahs. Israel will now smack these rag heads.

#9 March 15, 2013 WASHINGTON - In a display of unity between allies who often disagree, President Barack Obama assured Israel's visiting leader Monday that the United States "will always have Israel's back," and said the U.S. and Israel agree that diplomacy is the best way to resolve the crisis over potential Iranian nuclear weapons.

...and if you like your heath care plan, you can keep it.

#11 Amazing! The Obama cabal has managed to alienate Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel. It presided over the destruction of Libya, assisted in the division of Iraq, failed to assist the Syria rebels when help was most needed. It supports Turkey's Erdogen, a Muslim Brother, and is making plans to bug out in Afghanistan muy pronto.

The destruction of a traditional American foreign policy in the Mahgrib and Middle East in just five years is breathtaking.

Is it more, or less, breathtaking than the destruction of our economy and the Republic?

#13 if all of this ends as badly as I think it could, I want to see journos dangling from lampposts for paving this traitor's road to the presidency.

#14  I want to see journos dangling from lampposts for paving this traitor's road to the presidency.

Would you be satisfied to see many of them lose their jobs as their employers continue the downsizing that's been going on most of the past decade, Ricky bin Ricardo (Abu Babaloo)?

#16 For Israel, this is no time to be timid nor reckless. But it is a time to be decisive and aggressive. Israel has an existential problem with Iran. She also has a second order existential problem with Obama and some European powers. She is a thorn in their side. Obama would not mind Israel ceasing to exist. He just wants someone else to do it.

So, how can Bibi make this disaster into an opportunity? It seems to me that he and the Saudi king have something in common. Iran is a threat to both of them. Two against Iran is better than one. The Saudis want to nuke up, fine. Go for it. Saudis can provide bases for strikes and other under the table support for Israel, maybe even for subs. Never know. Put a little fear into the Mad Mullahs®.

On the US home front, Bibi needs to sic the US Congress on Obama and his little mutt Kerry. Sowing a little discord could be helpful to his cause, and us Just Plain Joes here in the US. Bring down Obama a notch. Isolate him from his base.

All fronts are fair when your very existence is at stake. Just a few ideas.
