    CNNi obsessing over what Israel will do. Which, to be frank, is a good thing to obsess over.

      Yes. I took my headphones off because I don’t want to hear the droning on and on….

      If you were a traveler to our planet from another galaxy tonight and you turned on CNNi you would think the most important country in the world is Israel and the world leader is Netanyahoo.
      How screwed up is this?

      • November 23, 2013 at 9:58 pm

        Well, to a great degree I agree with you. But the fact is that Bibi is NOT stable. I do fear what he’ll do. Hopefully PBO yanks on his chain hard.

          Fankly, at this point nut n yahoo has already overplayed his hand. His ‘nuclear option’ is a dud.

            I agree…PBO has tried to tell “nut n yahoo” that the world is moving on, things are changing and changing fast…he better get with the program or get left behind!!

      “Take your boots off… Our generation will not go to war.”

      CONGRATS IRAN! A decade long nuclear dispute between Iran and the West just ended on a long cold night in Geneva. The shadow of war will move away from one of the youngest and most vibrant societies in the Middle East. A proud generation who was raised through a long and devastating war and is sick and tired of violence. A modern politically savvy generation who has been trying to reform the structure of power through political participation for the past two decades.

      Here’s an earlier message Negar send today (DF posted on previous thread, but didn’t format like a tweet):

      While we’re excitedly waiting for PBO’s statement, here’s my congrats to a student who follows @LRozen (posted on an earlier thread):

    Congrats President Obama, SOS Kerry, NSC staff and the whole administration.

    Also, it can’t be said enough……TY SOOOOOOO MUCH for providing us this wonderful community gathering place, Chips!!! Will always be indebted.

    OK, this is kinda funny :)

    Oh what a privilege to be here this night. I think of all the people in Iran who have been living in hell the last few years. 150 years ago was the Gettysburg address, 50 years ago Kennedy and now President Barack H Obama. We are watching the greatest President. I love what BWD tweeted. Blessed are the Peacemakers!!!!!!!

    For 2500 years, Iran has been the giant of the Middle East. Because it and the Roman Empire fought to exhaustion, the Arabs were able to conquer the entire area. But Iran soon reasserted its independence. The idea that a regional superpower should be frozen out of any role in the region is not only shortsighted, but untenable. Syria won’t be solved without Iran. Iraq won’t be solved without Iran. Afghanistan won’t be solved without Iran.

    • November 23, 2013 at 9:59 pm

      “Syria won’t be solved without Iran. Iraq won’t be solved without Iran. Afghanistan won’t be solved without Iran.”

      And the person who has known that from long before he became President is Barack Obama & without doubt, John Kerry, also.

      HF, if you remember back to 2004, during the presidential debate on foreign policy, Kerry listed this as his number one goal if he were elected. People should have listened to him. Instead they re-elected the war monger and we are still paying the price.

    I hope Bill Maher is enjoying the news tonight. He was kvetching on Fri night that we might stay in Afghanistan for 10 more years.
    Clearly he hadn’t read that Karzai had put the kibosh on that plan.
    Now Iran breakthru.
    Take back your “President lied when he said he’d end the wars bullshit,” Mr Maher and when your show comes back try to think and do research before you open your mouth.

      He also sounded like he thinks Christie will be our next Prez. I certainly hope he is wrong on that too.

    Well, excuse me! Blitzer just burst into my feed sounding full of faux-excitement, and telling me if they can’t connect with their guy in Geneva, Candy Crowley was available to give her take. Well, those weren’t his exact words re Candy. Anyways, I turned it off. If they had set the link up previously they probably would have had more success , or I would have been more receptive.

    At best will be begrudging reporting. They’d ignore this wonderful news if they could.
    But they’ll settle for strewing doubts and fears.

    The Misery Media is going to have a few bad days.

    So, from what I’ve been seeing, the deal is a coup for the P5+1. Iran gets very little, and has to give up a lot.
