  1. Not sure what do you want from Trump on this issue. Obama never got this fully approved which is why Trump needs to certify it now.
    The Iranians knew it when they signed it but didn’t push for more b/c they knew Obama couldn’t deliver more.
    The Iranians also didn’t make it easy for Trump by playing nice so either they really enjoy playing with fire and push or they actually want this agreement to resolve.
    In any case, if Trump signs the deal he will loose the very few Americans who still approve of him and it isn’t like he will win anyone over this.

    1. @ Shachar:

      Obama never got this fully approved

      You prove that Israelis should not opine about American politics. You completely misunderstand the JPOA. The process of certification has nothing to do with the deal not being fully approved. Certification was written into the agreement so that it would force the President to report to Congress & the American people on whether Iran was living up to its end of the bargain.

      if Trump signs the deal he will loose the very few Americans who still approve of him

      False again. Trump did certify the deal once already & didn’t lose any more support because of it. Admittedly his support is very low, but that’s not due to certifying the nuclear deal.

      1. @ Elisabeth: Republicans could safely oppose the nuclear deal while Obama was in power because they had someone else to blame it on. But now that they have Louis XIV in power (apres moi le deluge) they’re scared shitless of what comes after decertification. If all goes to shit as it could very well do they’ll have no one to blame but themselves. That scares them into sobriety, as it should.

  2. Top IDF brass tells US Israel can’t handle Iran alone

    Iran, he continued, “are a higher form of civilization. They have a nice academic infrastructure, impressive industry, good scientists and many talenten young people. They are very similar to us, and because they are similar to us they are much, much more dangerous. And we can’t cope with them alone.”

    [Iran is so similar and dangerous as Israel, so the Iranians must be destroyed by the US military as so many states before since 1948? – Oui]

  3. Apres moi, le deluge…. Louis XV said it. Not XIV. The latter however said on his deathbed “L’Etat c’est moi… je meurs mais l’Etat me survivra”. An absolute monarch, he was but he had more intelligence in his little finger than the OM ever had in his entire body. Not the place to explain why but take historians’ word for it.
