#5 Oh geez, here we go again.

Every time our inept, incompetent, and naïve misguided, and wrong-headed foreign policy in the middle east needs adult supervision, the French step in and offer some reality.

Surprising because the Brits are normally the ones with more insight into the Arab mentality. Now we have the French stepping up to be the voice of reason as both the Brits and the US have become the sissies of foreign policy, might I add in the best traditions of Neville Chamberlain?

The Iranian issue has run on too long, it has been obvious to anyone with a rational brain cell that the Iranians were disingenuously running a rope a dope on us with their nuke program AND the UN has been so limp wristed panty-waist about doing anything meaningful.

AND what on earth are the Russians thinking? Standing in the door in support of Iran and Syria to prevent any half baked resolution or sternly worded letters to either of those countries. Why? Don't they know the Chechnya's could just as easily use an Iranian nuke on Moscow as the AQ could use the same nuke on Los Angeles?

It seems only the French have a clue about what is REALLY going on in Iran. Thank God for the French!!!! (And I never thought I would ever say that...or at least since the fall of Dien Bien Phu)

#7 O does not care about a nuke deal with the MMs. He just cares about something to distract us sheeple from the domestic disasters he and his cronies have heaped upon us.

The deal is going nowhere.

#9 So it seems to me, Commodore Frank, that the ball is in Congress' court. Once again, O has defied Congressional law. Will Congress act on that defiance? Tell me another jest.

#10 "Kerry: United States not 'blind' or 'stupid' in Iran talks"

You tell 'em, Jawn. You (as the representative of the U.S.) are blind AND stupid.

#11 There are several theories on why the French acted as they did.

One theory is that the Saudis paid them to do it. Other theories are that they just like opposing the US, that they find JFKerry to be loathsome and couldn't help themselves or that they actually had some concern for world peace.

#12 ...that they find JFKerry to be loathsome and couldn't help themselves.

Then the French can't be all bad - we have something in common.
