Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

from Brown.edu...partial summary of Iran-Contra.

•July 3, 1985 : McFarlane meets with Israeli David Kimche, who is in the U.S. on behalf of the Israelis who had met with Khashoggi and Ghorbanifar. The arms-for-hostages deal is first outlined, as is the prospect of improving the U.S.-Iran relationship. •July 16, 1985 : McFarlane meets with Reagan and his Chief of Staff Regan while Reagan is in the hospital recovering from surgery. They discuss the possibility of selling arms to Iran via Israeli in order to get the release of the hostages and to open communications with Iran. The details of this visit are hazy, but McFarlane came away from it with the idea that the President had encouraged him to go forward with discussions with the Iranians and Israelis. •August 1985 : Reagan approves the plan to allow Israeli to sell U.S.-made weapons to Iran. •August 20, 1985 : first load of missiles sent from Israeli to Iran. •September 15, 1985 : American hostage Benjamin Weir released.

Iran can keep their weapons? I should think so. After all, Reagan went to a lot of trouble for Iran to get them.

stillhere - You'll have to build your chutes of logic a little narrower if you expect to keep someone, like NCN, from wondering away before you get him to the corral.

Of course we know that North Korea is now a stable international non nuclear partner thanks to ole Slick Willie.

See ANY similarities with the Iran deal? Anyone? Bueller?

Today, after 16 months of intense and difficult negotiations with North Korea, we have completed an agreement that will make the United States, the Korean Peninsula, and the world safer. Under the agreement, North Korea has agreed to freeze its existing nuclear program and to accept international inspection of all existing facilities.

This agreement represents the first step on the road to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. It does not rely on trust."

it would be of interest to look into Irans Ballistic Missle Program. every product needs a delivery system. it was estimated that as of 2014 they were capable of reaching western europe and the U.S. by 2020.

There is little question that both Russia and China have been looking forward to this moment. Indeed, Russian and Chinese forebearance has been one of the miracles of the sanctions process, evidence that neither, however much they like to tweak the United States, actually favors a nuclear Iran. But even if the deal fails to make its way through the U.S. and Iranian diplomatic process, the arms embargo has a very limited lifespan.

What does Iran need? Pretty much everything. Thirty years of sanctions and war have left the Iranian military with an arsenal of obsolescent weapons. The Iranians have done good work in a few areas, but the country simply lacks the size, technology, and market access to successfully develop an autarkic defense industry."

Stillhere...perhaps in an off-hand way NCN finds success in GWB and his policies since many of them Obama has extended. you are correct that deflection for approval is pretty lame. Iran is not going to stop until they achieve their goal. that is a fact. they have regulary gone back on agreements. they have not exhibited track record of trust. i read in the guardian that accepted timeline for Iran prior to the deal was estimated at mere months...now with this much heralded agreement they optimisticly hope to delay that for a year. while prevention may be the intent, the plan does not effectively guarantee that Iran won't attain a nuclear weapon. the unsettling thing in this is the approval for advanced weapons technology.

as posted in the diplomat: "The recent deal between the P5+1 and Iran over the latter’s nuclear program means, reportedly, that Iran will once again be on the market for advanced weapons technology, and that (eventually) it will have money to spend.

Good lord Nascar, is there ANYTHING you will not try to deflect to GWB? Pretty lame, Barry has been POTUS long enough to wear his big boy pants and be held responsible for HIS actions don't ya think?

But there's one fact to keep in mind here: the deal Obama just signed is the extension of an Iran policy that began under George W. Bush.

Bush's strategy, according to his national security adviser Stephen Hadley, was to offer "the relaxation of existing economic sanctions and active international support for a truly peaceful civilian nuclear program" in exchange for clear limits on Iran's ability to push towards a bomb. Bush's ideal end state, in other words, looked a lot like what this deal accomplishes.

"Death to Israel" and "Death to America" chants continue despite the placating of Iran by our brilliant deal makers.

Got any Buyer's Remorse yet, Obama and Kerry?

How about YOU, Ohwiseone?

Kerry was going to walk away with a deal even if it was a "bogo" free offer from target.
