I have always said that I could care less if Iran has a nuclear weapon (might help bring a balance of power to the Mid East). Also I am not convinced that Iran is necessarily as close to developing one as people say. I don't see the evidence (for one thing Iran does not have enough highly enriched uranium. I guess this is a good deal. Anything that stops war is good but I also think the next president will likely rattle the sword again - Iran is a convenient enemy and America always needs an enemy. I don't blame Iran for being hostile and feeling paranoid about US intentions and feeling like they need something like a nuclear device.. American imperialism stuck them with the Shah, a tyrant, for decades by engineering the coup of the democratically elected Dr Mossadegh for the crime of supporting the sharing of Iran's wealth with its people. Also Iraq used chemical weapons against Iranians during the Iran-Iraq War. These weapons were given to the Iraqis by the US (as the US gave weapons to Iran as well). And let's face it as long as Israel has the fourth or fifth largest nuclear arsenal in the world and uses chemical weapons like phosphorus on the imprisoned population of Gaza, this is all one big joke.
One of the main criticism I have been hearing the last few days is the deal does not address four American prisoners being kept in Iran. Robert Levinson is a CIA contractor who was arrested while seemingly on a sabotage mission. I say "arrested" but it's not really known who has Levinson - if it's the Iranian authorities or a private group. In other words, he was a spy trying to destroy Iranian infrastructure. How do we know this? The CIA paid his wife 2.5 million dollars so she won't sue and force them to release the details on what he was doing to the public (Most likely damaging oil pipelines and machinery ). Jason Rezian and Akmir Hekmati are both US citizens of Iranian descent - Rezian was a journalist and Hekmati an ex-solder on vacation. Most likely they are spies too, they have been accused of espionage although they have not been outed by the USA as such yet. The last detainee, was a Christian missionary Saeed Abedini who was arrested while trying to convert Iranians. Iran like many Muslim countries has an anti-proselytization law which is common knowledge. If you go to a country and knowingly break the laws of that country, you should not be accorded any sympathy. I say let them all rot especially Levinson the terrorist.
And speaking of prisoners, Obama's gesture to placate Israel by releasing Jonathan Pollard., an unstable drug addict who also attempted to sell information to China, Pakistan, and apartheid South Africa (one of Israel's greatest friends)) and whose main motivator as much as love of Israel was money is shameful and also pointless. The Zionists are happy making Obama a public enemy for Jews even though he bends over to kiss their ass - Most Zionist Jews are racists as well I've found. Releasing Pollard won't change that.
