There Will Be No Deal With Iran. Make Sense? Of Course Not!Opinion by Joe Clifford Salem-News.com
Did you ever hear of a negotiating process aimed at peace when one of the negotiators keeps insisting they have the right to attack the other? This is all done to sabotage any potential deal, while playing the political game of appearing to want one.
(JAMESTOWN, RI) - For years we have been told the Iran was developing nuclear weapons despite there being not a shred of evidence they were doing any such thing. For years the leaders of Iran have been saying they thought nuclear weapons were immoral and they had no use for them, and therefore did not want them.
It was Iran who proposed and agreed to a Nuclear Free Middle East which was quickly pushed aside by the US in an effort to protect Israel, who illegally has over 200 nuclear weapons and wants desperately to be the only power in the Middle East to have nuclear bombs and weapons.
The Saudi’s also proposed a Nuclear Free Middle East Zone which the Iranians agreed to, and which once again the US quickly brushed aside. In 2012 there was to be a conference of all Middle East nations to discuss creating a Nuclear Free Middle East when suddenly the US arbitrarily announced there would be no meeting and no talks, which killed the prospect of a Nuclear Free zone.
There is no logic in opposing a Nuclear Free Middle East, the US rejected the proposal for political reasons, and politics frequently defies logic and reason.
The US rejected the idea of a Nuclear Free Zone in the Middle East to protect Israel and to insure they are the only nuclear power in the Middle East. Israel pretty much runs and controls our Congress, and much that we do in the Middle East is done to satisfy Israel, so we endanger the entire world to satisfy Israeli desires.
Now, there appears to be a deal with Iran and the Israelis are horrified, and indeed Benjamin Netanyahu has been acting paranoid with his rants against the treaty. He is so nonsensical in his approach the only one to listen to him is the US.
He condemned the deal before there even was a deal, and then set about to undermine and destroy any deal with Iran. Israel has unleashed its forces and puppets in the US congress and will sabotage any deal.
President Obama said, speaking before pro-Israel groups, that he only thought a deal had a 50-50 chance of coming to fruition, or even less, and naturally he reserved the military option in the future. Did you ever hear of a negotiating process aimed at peace when one of the negotiators keeps insisting they have the right to attack the other?
This is all done to sabotage any potential deal, while playing the political game of appearing to want one.
In the end the deal will fail, and the world will teeter on the brink of a cataclysmic war. Make sense? Of course not? Good for America? Of course not. Good for the world? Of course not.
Need further proof the US does not want a deal? In 2010 the US had been making major demands of the Iranians, and insisted there could only be peace if Iran agreed to all the conditions we laid out.
Brazil and Turkey got into the show, and to the shock of all, got the Iranians to agree to all the conditions the US had insisted upon. It was the US who then walked away from the deal we had been insisting upon for years.
All the past rhetoric about wanting peace was made perfectly clear to Iran, Brazil, Turkey, and the rest of the world.
So in the end there will not be a deal with Iran, for in reality the forces that control the president and the Congress, do not want any deal with Iran. They would prefer a war. Make sense? Of course not!
