KERRY’S TIDY TALKS
One observer suggests that Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s recent inconclusive negotiations with Iran over nuclear weapons have proceeded as if they were tidy talks, say, about vacations and benefits.
“Contrary to Kerry’s rhetoric, this is not a labor negotiation in which both sides must be allowed to walk away with something and a solution always lies in splitting the difference between the two sides,” points out Jonathan Tobin, a columnist for Commentary magazine.
“Any Iranian deal that doesn’t definitively end their chance of building a weapon, whether via uranium or plutonium, is a scam, not a diplomatic triumph. Insistence on this point doesn’t make the deal’s critics warmongers. It makes them realists,” Mr. Tobin adds. One Arizona Republican is no fan of Mr. Kerry either. “This guy has been a human wrecking ball. I’m very disappoined,” Sen John McCain told an audience at the recent Washington Ideas Forum, organized by Atlantic Media in the nation’s capital.
