Iran Is Still Being Iran Despite Nuke Deal

Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

(CNN)Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed Saturday that a newly negotiated deal on his country’s nuclear program would not alter Iran’s policies toward the United States.

In a televised address marking the start of Eid al-Fitr, the festival that follows the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Khamenei said the agreement signed Tuesday on the nuclear issue would not affect Iran’s stance on other regional or bilateral matters.

“Our policies toward the arrogant government of the United States will not be changed at all,” he said.

Khamenei said the negotiations with the United States and other world powers on Tehran’s nuclear program were an exception because they served Iran’s national interest.

Iran signed the deal because it served their national interest, which is, presumably, getting more money to fund their terror activities and acquiescence from the West to build a nuclear weapon in 10 years. What national interest of the United States was served?

    mmmmmmkay….so why did US intel (not Russki, nor PRC) report, twice, during both the Bush II and Obozo Administrations, that Iran had zero nuke-bomb capacity>

    There is a lot of propaganda out there from the neo-con class about Iran, which is far more a threat to Saudi and Egypt than the US or Israel. Not all propaganda is true, ya’know.

    I thought Iran was within days , weeks Or a year of breaking out . That’s what Cheney told us a month ago

    Now 10 years isn’t enough ?

    Jeb Bush yesterday said politicians like Walker
    Who say they will negate the deal in the day they are elected will have no cabinet in place , no Sec Def . ( a ray of common sense in
    A sea of expert unemployed negotiators )

    Bebe said as great a concern is that Iran won’t cheat and will have unlimited
    Nukes in 10 years

    So what is is the anti treaty story ?
    They will cheat?
    They won’t cheat !
    They are getting nukes almost immediately
    They will get unlimited nukes in 10 years

    Everyone on TV ( or blogs ) could have gotten a better deal ,enacted harsher sanctions or sent in a bunch ( never specified ) of troops that would knock heads and sense into those
    Ayatillah’s .

    They are the same folks who have perfect plays in mind on the Monday after the packers lose (from the comfort of their
    Favorite sofa .)
