Bernie is polishing his international diplomatic creds! Go, Bernie!


I honestly can’t really tell what Trump’s logic is on this.

And this statement, made this afternoon, makes no sense to me:

“We cannot prevent an Iranian bomb under the decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement,” the president said in justifying his decision. “Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”

Because I’m more in this camp (until I see evidence to the contrary):

Iran has dismantled a huge portion of its nuclear program and given international inspectors wide latitude to make sure it isn’t cheating

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail:

Now, American withdrawal doesn’t mean the deal is immediately dead. Technically, the nuclear deal is an agreement between Iran and what’s called the P5+1 (the US, Britain, France, Russia, China, and Germany) — which means the US leaving the agreement doesn’t end it. If the rest of the P5+1 keep their sanctions off, Iran may decide to continue to adhere to the deal’s restrictions even after the US pullout. That’s what Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his country would do in a Monday speech.


I’m sure besides Bolton and Pompeo, Tom Cotton has been whispering in Donny’s ear. Cotton is slavering over the chance to invade.
