Seeing ourselves as others see us

The vision is scary.

Item One: Our Congress thinks it is debating whether the international agreement to curtail Iran's nuclear program will happen.

The UN Security Council has already approved the deal, and by a 15-0 unanimous vote—hardly its norm on controversial issues. So has the European Union. Sample report, from Reuters: “‘It is a balanced deal that means Iran won’t get an atomic bomb,’ said French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. ‘It is a major political deal.’” The Russians and Chinese are moving ahead as if the deal is done, because from the world’s perspective it is.

Item Two: These scrabbling fools are competing to demonstrate who can be most ignorant and irresponsible in order to have a chance to become President of the United States. Sticking a podium in front of each of them does not confer gravitas or sanity.

Dual loyalist Schumer announced his opposition.
Groveling for Zionist money. I wonder if The Lobby realizes it is setting the framework for teaching the world a powerful Napoleonic lesson which the US didn't learn.
I don't believe anyone can observe the Zionist oppression of those from whom they stole and are stealing the land and the overall fruits of rabbinical law in Israel without harkening to it.
