The hell with SA and those other Gulf state tyrants and that jerk in Turkey...Turkey Jerk!

Where are they going to go but to the US side, they’re not going over to Israel or Russia.

Anyway, look at the mess they have made with ISIS and their stupid war against Assad that has caused 200,000 Syrian deaths.

Again, this makes zero sense.

Nobody is saying Saudi Arabia is perfect. Who made that claim?

The point is, there's a reason much of the world supported Saddam Hussein in Iraq. It was to be a check for Iran. This is because nobody wants Iran to gain power in the region. You keep making these nonsensical statements in a vacuum as if someone is claiming Saudi Arabia is perfect.

Nobody has made that claim, but dealing with Saudi Arabia is totally different than dealing with Iran where you have a religious leader who has total control over the Government. The supreme leader controls the economy and the army in Iran.

Obama is saying, he hopes the President of Iran wants to change things but this is just nonsense. He is like a yes man to the supreme leader.

It would be like the Italian Govt. being ran by the Pope.

So you can't just stick your head in the sand and say lets give in to Iran's demands because we desperately want a deal that will accomplish nothing. Any deal Iran is happy with is a bad deal. Their intentions are clear. To control the ME and be a religious superpower.

The Iranian dream of a reborn Persian Empire

Iran is piling one brick on the other. As I’ve warned on Fox News and Charles Krauthammer described — eloquently — in The Washington Post, today’s Iranians, with their Persian heritage, are on the march as surely as were the armies of Xerxes 2,500 years ago. Desperate for a legacy, our president obsesses about a deal (no matter how wretched) on Iran’s nuclear program, while ignoring Iran’s aggression across the Middle East. In his recent State of the Union message, the president even defended Iran against Congress and further sanctions.

Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons matters. It’s a potential strategic disruptor of the first magnitude. But it’s only one aspect of Tehran’s grand design. And a bad deal is worse than no deal. To date, Iran has given up nothing, while we’ve given its rulers time, sanctions relief and almost $12 billion in “unfrozen” assets.

My point is, it's idiotic to deal with Iran in such a position of weakness when they're under the rule of a religious leader. Why do you think the 5 nations are meeting in Switzerland? Why do you think there's any concern about Iran getting nuclear weapons?

Here's more from that staunch conservative Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.):

If today’s news report from Lausanne is true, we are not inching closer to Iran’s negotiating position, but leaping toward it with both feet. We have pivoted away from demanding the closure of Fordow when the negotiations began, to considering its conversion into a research facility, to now allowing hundreds of centrifuges to spin at this underground bunker site where centrifuges could be quickly repurposed for illicit nuclear enrichment purposes. My fear is that we are no longer guided by the principle that “no deal is better than a bad deal,” but instead we are negotiating “any deal for a deal’s sake.”

An undue amount of trust and faith is being placed in a negotiating partner that has spent decades deceiving the international community; denying the International Atomic Energy Agency access to its facilities; refusing to answer questions about its nuclear-related military activities; and all the while, actively destabilizing the region from Lebanon to Syria to Iraq to Yemen. A good deal must meet our primary negotiating objective – curtailing Iran’s current and future ability to achieve nuclear weapons capability. If the best deal Iran will give us does not achieve this goal, it is not a good deal for the United States or its partners. A good deal won’t leave Iran as a nuclear threshold state.

Obama is just desperate to do a deal and it's partly out of spite.
