Thomas Friedman, "What Bibi Didn’t Say": Ignoring Obama's Sunset Clause

It turns out that Thomas Friedman, a dyed-in-the-wool Obama lackey, has serious reservations concerning the deal that the P5+1 is offering Khamenei. Following Netanyahu's speech to Congress, Friedman, in his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "What Bibi Didn’t Say," writes:

"The U.S. position — shared by China, Russia, Germany, Britain and France — is: Given that Iran has already mastered the techniques to make a bomb and managed to import all the components to do so, despite sanctions, it is impossible to eliminate Iran’s bomb-making capabilities. What is possible is to demand that Iran roll back its enrichment and other technologies so that if Iran decided one day to make a bomb, it would take it a year — more than enough time for the U.S. and its allies to destroy it.

I think such a deal would be in America’s interest if — if — it includes Iran agreeing to constant, intrusive and unannounced inspections of, and limits on, all bomb-making capacities and if, even after the specified 10 years, there are more-than-the-usual inspections.

. . . .

I still don’t know if I will support this Iran deal"

"If - if . . . and if"? What if the moon was made of green cheese? In fact, the deal being championed by Obama does not call for "more-than-the-usual inspections" after 10 years. Rather, all restrictions upon Iran would be removed, and Khamenei and friends would be free to build their nuclear arsenal without interference.

Moreover, does Friedman really believe that China and Russia would agree to attack Iran if Iran suddenly decided to build its first nuclear weapon? Does Friedman believe that Obama, who decided to ignore his own "red line" involving the use of chemical weapons against civilians in Syria, would be capable of an air strike against Iranian nuclear facilities?

Go ahead, Tom! You can say it! Obama's conciliatory offer to a maniacal Iran stinks to high heaven!

  1. Neo-Stalinists (also known as neo-comm) are spinning like crazy.
    The original applauded the pact of 1939. The "secondary" promote Obama-Khamenei pact.
