The Daily Show on the Iran deal

Watching the Republicans in Congress and their leader Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu bad-mouth the negotiated framework for a deal between the P5+1 nations and Iran shows how insane politics has become in the US. These people don’t want negotiations being conducted by their own country’s president to succeed. Instead they take their cues from a foreign leader who wants nothing other than the complete capitulation of Iran, and who threaten war if that is not attained. Since Iran will never agree to such humiliating terms, they clearly want war.

    There is more fun to this then what was just showed.
    For example that 15 year moratorium that was mentioned in the clip. That is what the U.S. claim is agreed on. Iran says it is 10. Same goes for how and when the sanctions will be lifted. The U.S. says suspension in phases when verifiable milestones are reached, Iran says all will be lifted when the deal goes into effect.

    There is no other option but for this deal to go through. The alternatives are just too awful to contemplate.
