It is the Islamic Republic of Iran that is actively declaring "Death to America".

Search Youtube for videos of fascist Iran with terms "iran death america".

And with the Islamic Republic of Iran and it's developing "peaceful" nuclear weapons program, which countries are in its crosshairs?

"The purpose is to uphold the NPT and stop a rogue sponsor of terrorism from getting nuclear weapons."

Are you referring to Israel or Iran here? Because the last time I checked, Israel had nuclear weapons and bulldozed homes of native citizens.

"god bless France"?!?

You must be choking on your freedom fries with every keystroke!

Are you really counting on Europe's most antisemitic nation, presently run by Europe's most inept politician (Frahncois Hollandazed)as a key ally? OMFG this can only get better! Keep'em coming JIDF!

So, every time Obama defies Israeli/Saudi directives he is being "played"?

Typical JIDF logic. Same thing happened during Syria run-up when AIPAC put the full court press on the Congress and still came up empty.

If anybody is getting played it's our frenemy Israel and I applaud Obama every step of the way. There WILL be a deal. I promise. This is a negotiating technique and there is nothing Israel can do about it except climb farther up their own ***.

And with Lieberman back in the picture you can count on even more bellicose rhetoric coming out of the Knesset all to no avail. This could be the turning point for US/Israel relations and it's been a long time in coming. As for the Saudi's - who are they going to run to ? China? LOL, good luck...

The media had no problems with Lara Logan when she could be depicted as the helpless victim of sexual assault during the Tahrir Square at the hands of - who? (I don't know that the perpetrators were ever identified)

It appears that she came back to her viewers promptly with the information about how her initial report was inaccurate. (Maybe the lessons of Dan Rather's hit piece on Bush were learned by CBS?)

The regular news media seems to maintain its "Nothing to see here" attitude about the decision time line and the decision makers for the 9/11/12 Benghazi Terrorist Attack. (SNARK: No evidence that correspondents' preferences for the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections had any effect on their "usual" curiosity?)

Ms. Logan's reporting has been courageous, both for the circumstances in which it is done and her readiness to admit error.

Obama is being played and outsmarted once again.
LOL, he is only tough on the Tea Party and Republicans.
His bend-over response to everyone else is ... well, ask his friend Vladimir.

No, the deal is this. No nuclear program then no sanctions. You don't let the other side rope a dope you. You knock them out. You don't let them get another punch at you. A bad deal is no deal. God Bless France.

Never did like any of Logan's reporting. I am a regular viewer of 60 Minutes but never watch her segments when they come on because I don't like the way she spins. You all spin but her spin makes me dizzy.

This guy, mccain and everyones opinion you are talking about are mass murdering war mongers. That's the bottom line. They are pushing for mass murder, they are mass murderers, bombing innocent families and babies. Will we ever realize that we do not need to have leaders that are mass murderers. it is possible. The whole war monger market can be cut, and the result would be free healthcare, free college, low taxes, advanced infrastructure. Lets protect america by not killing millions of people in other countries. If they are not going to attack us under those circumstances, how can they convince you we would be less safe with out a military.

Can we send Lara Logan to Gitmo yet?

The purpose is not to have "a deal." The purpose is to end the Iranian nuclear program. The purpose is not to smile and end tensions. The purpose is to uphold the NPT and stop a rogue sponsor of terrorism from getting nuclear weapons.

Dude, it's called "good cop-bad cop". Next round is on the 20th, the deal must be very close. Benny N. is getting spanked by Obama in public and it is hilarious but I'm sure Lieberman's return will smooth things out LOL. Go go gadget JIDF ... At least you can always count on the 'murrican wacko evangelical base for a steady stream of red heifers!

Please ask SANGER about a deal that even the French won’t surrender their future to:


“On Saturday French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told France-Inter Radio that France does not want to be party to a "con game" in the P5+1 Iranian nuclear negotiations. How could our government be willing to accept something that the French called a "con game"?”
