It is almost Biblical. A cabal of events have ganged up on history to deliver a nuclear weapon to a group of people who worship death, and who state that their greatest goal is to deliver that death to the United States and Israel. Thursday, the Senate failed by a vote of 56-42 to block the Iranian “treaty” that isn’t a treaty thanks to Republicans, making way for its implementation. You can’t really blame Obama for this deal; he is merely doing what anyone paying attention from 2008 on knew he would do. The blame rests squarely with the Republicans in Congress – who have failed in their primary Constitutional duty.
Now the Iranian mullahs will have billions of dollars, sanctions lifted, and the implicit obligation of the United States to protect their right to develop the Bomb. Or perhaps they shall just buy one. But either way, Iran stands astride the Middle Eastern hegemony it has long sought, and peace seems destined to be an orphan.
