Obama: Iran Needs to Keep Nuclear Program for its “Dignity”

kerryspaceman

Oddly enough Obama didn’t go around explaining that when he meant that an Iranian nuclear program was unacceptable, what he actually meant was that uranium enrichment was completely acceptable… before he actually made that disastrous deal.

Alluding to the view of Netanyahu and a number of lawmakers in Congress, Obama said, “what this comes up down to is the perception that if we kept churning up the pressure, new sanctions, more sanctions, more military threats etc, that eventually Iran would cave.”

Instead, Obama said, that would likely drive away allies who have helped keep up the pressure on Iran through U.S.-led sanctions.

So those sanctions don’t work, except when they do work. They work at getting a meaningless agreement through. But not a meaningful one. Is there anything sanctions can’t do? Just ask Kim Jong Il and Bill Clinton.

Obama outlined U.S. red lines in a final agreement, including the dismantling of the plutonium reactor at Arak and the underground nuclear reactor at Fordow, as well as advanced centrifuges.

These would be the new red lines. Which everyone takes seriously. Because look at how he stuck to his red lines on Syria. And Iran.

Demanding no enrichment, Obama said, was unrealistic, likening it to his believing Congress would pass every one of his legislative initiatives.

The Iranians needed to come to a deal that would afford them some “dignity,” he said, and alluded to broad popular support for some enrichment capacity.

What exactly does dignity have to do with a nuclear weapons program? This is a straightforward problem. Iran is a terrorist regime and its nuclear program is weapons oriented. Either that program gets stopped or we’re looking at a countdown to terrorists getting their hands on nukes.

But stopping the program would damage Iran’s dignity.

Obama twice said that he would reassert the military option should talks fail with Iran. “I’ve made clear I can avail myself of including a military option, is one we can consider and prepare for,” he said.

And then everyone laughed and laughed.

    How could Iranian talks with 0′Bama “fail?” Fail to do what?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Fail to distract Americans from ObamaCare

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Bingo.

      • tickletik

        I think if anything, it’s the reverse.

        Blow up Israel, or wreck the American economy forever

        Decisions, decisions…

        • pupsncats

          Obama wants to do both.

    It might be a stereotype, but Asians are said to dread losing face. So by Obama’s logic we should let them enrich uranium also.

    So many people wanted a black president. there are so many competent distinguished black professionals to choose from.

    Yet we get a person, who attended private schools and who has no accomplishments other than he is part of the Democrat party.

    People hate his polices, yet they would vote for him again.

    Insanity!

      His great accomplishment is to be the leader of the criminal and racist party.The party of Ted the criminal Kennedy,the conscience of the party,as well as the party of the KKK .The other accomplishment,at least toforeigners is that he managed to fool people twice.

      Saving face is in regards to working with the civilized.

      With arch-terrorists who have killed and tortured hundreds of thousands, and brainwashed children into suicide, let them avoid being bombed or shot if they spend the rest of their lives in prison.

      The left could care less about ethnicity. Those at the top are driven by past crimes instead of lured by future greed. Those at the bottom put more thought into voting when they call into American Idol.

      Herman Cain would have made an awesome president! That man is one person that actually has the knowledge & talents it would take to fix our economy.. Too bad the left smeared him with lies that have forever damaged him politically.. Lies, that when the same allegations have been proven to be facts against Democrat men, are completely overlooked & dismissed.

    Dignity for terrorists but none for the innocent, defenseless unborn. The ugly and demonic true nature of Obama.

    • 7papa7

      Who gives a hoot about Iran’s dignity? I sure don’t. You are so right about the true nature of obama, it is demonic.

      • pupsncats

        Obviously, Obama cares deeply about Iran. Wouldn’t you say he cares more about the Muslim terrorists than he does about Americans?

        • 7papa7

          That is most obvious even to the casual observer.

  • rangerrebew

    I need a Rolls Royce for my dignity. Will Obama get one for me?

    • pupsncats

      Unless you are a terrorist, pro-totalitarianism, and a loyal contributor to the Democratic (sic) Party, you have no dignity. So forget it.

  • Russell Smith

    He must have had a nose full of blow the day he worked on that treaty…OH, sorry, that’s everyday for this gay bathhouse boy.

  • Adel

    Bravo! Now everyone tell this to your representatives that the upcoming discussion/investigation must reveal NO DEAL as the information is old and we must not make deals with terrorist especially those who profess to wipe Christians off the face of the earth.

  • Lanna

    There is no dignity in the planning of wiping any nation off the map…Sick Sick philosophies,

    The speed and almost reckless haste of negotiations is more an indication of the precarious nature of the President of the United States and his party in terms of their negative slide in opinion polls with the failure and criticism over its policies such asthe Affordable Care Act. Presidents in trouble have often sought a quick home run politically with a perceived foreign policy victory. We don’t have to look
    much further than the previous President’s use of the “surge” in Afghanistan in
    an attempt to divert the public’s attention from the collapse of the financial
    markets at home.

  • Jakareh

    Oh, their poor dignity-wignity!

    How about this: living in a country with a despicable scoundrel for a president is wounding my dignity. Will you resign, Barry? Pretty please?
