The U.S. and Iran reached a nuclear deal last night. The Obama administration is thrilled, and the Iranian leadership shares that enthusiasm:

Netanyahu called the deal a “historic mistake” (even though Kerry ridiculously said Israel stands shoulder to shoulder with the U.S. on this) and John Bolton says it’s “abject surrender” to Iran.

The deal reportedly lifts some economic sanctions on Iran in return for them “freezing or reversing” progress at their nuclear facilities. Iran’s leadership seems uncharacteristically happy with being told what to do, so I’ll remain firmly in the “wildly skeptical” category.

I think they’re calling it the “Iran nuclear deal” because “Munich agreement” was already taken. On that point, here’s Daniel Pipes (h/t Doug Ross):

This wretched deal offers one occasion when comparison with Neville Chamberlain in Munich in 1938 is valid. An overeager Western government, blind to the evil cunning of the regime it so much wants to work with, appeases it with concessions that will come back to haunt it. Geneva and Nov. 24 will be remembered along with Munich and Sep. 29.”

    Unlike Chamberlain, John Kerry is a proven traitor (1971 Paris) who is, quite frankly stupider than a bucket of used camel snot, and even less useful.

    [...] Any deal brokered by the likes of Big Red Barry, his Persian-born gal pal Val, and Hanoi John Kerry is by definition a bad deal for our side.  This crew never gambles with its own chips — and when our national security is on the table, Democrats haven’t raked in a pot since the Kennedy Administration.  As Doug Powers writes: [...]

    Dear Leader is so desperate to change the subject to anything other than the O'Scare Clusterf**k that he is willing to sign off on anything.

    You know the deal is bad when even the Saudi's are saying that they may have to take matters into their own hands and strike out at Iran Militarily.
