I Thought Neville Chamberlain Was Dead

Oh, sorry about that video.  I was trying to find one of John Kerry announcing the new nuke deal with Iran, and got a little confused.

In case y’all haven’t heard, Iran, the US State Department, and other world leaders have signed an agreement on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.  The Washington Times says this about the deal:

After 18 days of intense and often fractious negotiation, world powers and Iran struck the historic deal to curb Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions — an agreement designed to avert the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran and another U.S. military intervention in the Muslim world.

Sounds good, right?  Not so fast, y’all.  More, from TWT:

Under the deal, Tehran would have the right to challenge any U.N. request to inspect its military sites, and an arbitration board composed of Iran and the six world powers that negotiated with it would have to decide on the issue. Washington agreed to the provision to clear one of the last remaining hurdles to an agreement.

If you read that, and have some misgivings, you are in good company.  Benjamin Netanyahu has some reservations, as well:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been arguing forcefully against the deal, denounced it as a “historic mistake for the world” and accused the U.S. and other world powers of making “far-reaching concessions” to get an agreement “at any price.” Mr. Netanyahu said concessions were made “in all areas that were supposed to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability.”

Now, I haven’t read the deal myself, but if what’s being said about it is true, then I’m afraid that Mr. Netanyahu is right, and John Kerry and Barack Obama were determined to go with just any old deal that Iran’s mullahs would agree to.  It’s as if John Kerry were possessed by the ghost of Neville Chamberlain in Munich.  I’m probably just being a Nervous Nellie, though, ’cause Iran has proven themselves to be honest and dependable partners in the past, right?  Don’t worry about those chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to the United States”, y’all; that’s just those crazy Iranians being playful and stuff.
