Ivy_Mike_-_mushroom_cloud

From Bruce Majors, who ran as a Libertarian for Mayor of Washington DC writes:

After seven years of seeing Obama in action, why would anyone, including libertarians, give Obama the benefit of the doubt about anything, including the Iran deal?

The Iran deal, the details of which few of its defenders actually discuss, and which the Obama regime didn’t want to let anyone see until after it was all signed, sealed, and delivered, has three substantive aspects: 1) Giving the Iranian regime and other Iranian entities over $100 billion is assets that have been frozen in foreign financial institutions, 2) ending economic sanctions against Iran, and 3) creating a program for inspecting Iranian nuclear industries to ensure they are not being used for weapons production.… Read more ...

Iranian election provides golden opportunity for peacemaking

Foreign Affairs Branch

The recent election of Hassan Rouhani to succeed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the President of Iran bodes well for improved relations between the United States and Tehran.  Rouhani is the most moderate of all the candidates and was something of a surprise winner in a contest that by all accounts was open and above board—not like the rigged 2009 election which incited massive protests and  a draconian governmental response of arrests and violence.Rouhani has promised to release members of the Green Movement arrested in the post-2009 election clamp down, and also offering an olive branch to the U.S.… Read more ...

It is remarkable how many of these war-mongers are former draft dodgers who wanted other Americans to fight the war in Vietnam.
