The GOP's vague alternatives to the Iran deal are dishonest and impossible but of course, they don't care. Like the nihilists they are, all they really care about is defeating every effort of their true enemy, Obama and Democrats. Not preventing Iran from having nuclear weapons.
Instead of letting the GOP get away with trying to create an anti-identity based solely on what they oppose and want to repeal, it's a good time to recognize who they really are as a party and what they truly stand for.
"Ares, you are so cute! We love everything about you and the awesome wars you bring us, it's like, so sweet and gets us so hot! All we can think about is Armageddon-it-on with you!"
This is a chilling event because these Republicans have demonstrated that they are willing do anything to obtain and to maintain power including undermining our constitutionally elected government as well as jeopardizing our international standing and national security.
According to Netanyahu, what's best for "all of us", is to not try to negotiate with Iran to stop them developing a nuclear weapon. So if they need to be stopped...and negotiating is foolish, what one path is left to stop them? War. And that's all that Netanyahu really wants.
Many are wondering, should Netanyahu's declarations be trusted? Thankfully, the diligent staff at PlanetPOV have assembled a list of Netanyahu's top ten most vehement predictions so that readers can make up their own minds about this.
Unfortunately, since religion is such a minefield for politicians, Americans have become accustomed to disassociating religious extremists from their religion so as not to offend mainstream religious voters.
For the Right anything Obama does is grist for the mill and fodder for the fools. They are railing because Obama did not go to Paris, but what if he did....
Republicans argued that the information in the Spanish Inquisition Torture Report was faulty, claiming that there was no torture but just "enhanced inquisitional procedures".
What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn't work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation's moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.
