Is this supposed to dissuade us?
Only in the mind of a career appeaser of terrorists like Kerry is this an argument against the deal.
But Hanoi John can't help being what he is. And so his anti-deal argument comes down to, "It'll hurt the Ayatollah's feelings."
Reneging on the nuclear agreement, which has the support of the major world powers, would constitute a setback for Washington and justify anti-American animus in Iran.
“The ayatollah constantly believed that we are untrustworthy, that you can’t negotiate with us, that we will screw them,” Kerry said. "[Having Congress vote down the nuclear pact] will be the ultimate screwing.”
“The United States Congress will prove the ayatollah’s suspicion, and there’s no way he’s ever coming back. He will not come back to negotiate. Out of dignity, out of a suspicion that you can’t trust America. America is not going to negotiate in good faith. It didn’t negotiate in good faith now, would be his point.”
That would be the guy who, after the deal, chants "Death to America".
Maybe it's just me, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Iran wasn't negotiating in good faith to begin with.
Kerry keeps taking the perceived point of view of the enemy. And he whines about how "embarrassed" he will be if the deal is rejected.
And yet Iran knew all along that the deal had to be ratified by Congress. Senator Tom Cotton and other Senators sent a letter to Iran warning of just that. In response, Obama inc. lost their minds and dubbed them the #47Traitors on Twitter.
It was a disgusting and pathetic show from a disgusting and pathetic administration.
Iran and Kerry both knew any deal had to get through Congress. Now Kerry is whining that the Ayatollah won't trust us anymore. But the only trusting party at the table was Kerry. The Ayatollah was out to give us the ultimate screwing.
Despite all the nonsense about "hardliners" and "moderates", the Ayatollah and the so-called moderates were on the same page. They were playing "Good Terrorist" and "Bad Terrorist" with us. We were the ones who had a split between appeasers and national security patriots.
If the Iran Nuke deal goes through, Iran will get nuclear weapons and the Ayatollah will have given us the ultimate screwing. But he'll have to share the credit with Obama and Kerry.
