Iran is thinking about it

Iran reportedly may have had a slight change of tactics:

Tehran has repeatedly vowed to continue building up what it calls defensive missile capability in defiance of Western criticism, with Washington saying the Islamic Republic’s stance violates its 2015 nuclear deal with the powers.

But the sources said that given U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats to ditch the deal reached under his predecessor Barack Obama, Tehran had approached the powers recently about possible talks on some “dimensions” of its missile programme.

“During their meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly last month, Iran told members of the (world powers) that it could discuss the missile programme to remove concerns,” an Iranian source with knowledge of the meeting told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Hard to know what this means, if anything. Negotiating—re-negotiating—any agreement with Iran promises to be a very tricky (literally) business.

    This move by the Iranians somewhat reminds me of their release of the American Embassy hostages the day Reagan was sworn in…

    A Russian official just revealed that N.K. is planning to test a missile capable of reaching the US West Coast.

    Yesterday, in a meeting in the WH with Trump’s top military leadership he said, “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.”

    It’s a virtual certainty that the Iranians are closely watching the interchanges. Unlike the N.K., the Iranians are smart enough to keep up the pretense that they only wish to defend their country.

    The thing I will never understand is why did this deal with Iran when we had their economy on the mat. So Boeing could sell some jets?

    The Leftist alliance is an ally of Islamic Jihad.

    As such, when Americans elect Hussein to the US President, why do you blame Boeing? Should just blame yourself, your family, your neighbors, and anyone else you know that has citizenship from the US.

    Unless the US isn’t a government of the people, by the people. Then you’ll be excused. But not for all the exceptional glorified claims America makes about being the home of the brave.

    The brave wouldn’t let DC get away with this.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
