  •  You should tell your family the deal with Iran (5+ / 0-)

    is strategic and economic, and that that the US are using Iran's nuclear program as a front to extract the necessary concessions from the Iranian government. Washington's primary concern is not Iran’s nuclear programs (don't tell them that), but to gain US access to Iran's huge reserves of oil and gas, and enlist Tehran in US efforts to ensure its dominant role in the Middle East and Central Asia.

    I'll be amazed if they don't buy into that. And if they do, it will be ironic, because that's the Socialist Equality Party's take on this deal (don't tell them that, either).

    •  Sorry, right wingers don't listen to reason. (0+ / 0-)


      5%, maybe 10% at absolute most do. But the rest are unreachable.

      •  Yes as these neocons would have told JFK to bomb (0+ / 0-)

        Cuba and go to war with the USSR and start WWIII.

        They would say Kennedy sold us out to the Russians and Cuba.

        Kennedy had to deal with some of these same kind of idiots but he and Bobby told them No, No, and No.

        The people were relieved, pleased, and praised President Kennedy for his diplomacy.

      US landscape, they also have to blow up the Middle East?

      If only they would go after global climate change with the same zeal and fury as they do fossil fuels.
