Nuclear Negotiations With Iran Fail - Surprise, Surprise

Negotiations with Iran to end development of nuclear weapons have failed.  What a surprise!  The deadline date for a deal came and went.   Socialist Emperor Pinnochio Obama and brie eating, kept man, Secretary of State John Kerry have agreed to extend the talks until next July to "get a deal".   It is pretty obvious that our President and Secretary of State continue to get worked by Iran.  The Ayatollah that runs Iran has stated in tweets no less that he has no intention of giving up their quest to build nuclear weapons.  Giving Iran several more months to make their nuclear weapons a fait accompli reality, which will be the end result of this extension, is about as dumb as it gets. 

The only hope we have of forcing an end to Iran's nuclear program, short of using our military to destroy it, are intense sanctions that destroy their economy.  As such, when the new Republican controlled Congress convenes in January, they should immediately end the freeze on sanctions and impose even more.  Obamanistas can protest publicly and blame the Congress for doing this; but it would give them the hammer they need to actually get a deal.  This is the only hope we have of getting rid of Iran's nukes peacefully.

And, unless the US is prepared to help Israel take military action and or we are willing to take military action to end Iran's nuclear program, then Containment is the only other option because they will not otherwise give up their nuclear program.   That means giving the Israeli's nuclear submarines armed with their own nuclear weapons as a deterent.   We should also encourage the Saudi's to develop nuclear weapons as a counter weight to Iran in the region.  At the same time, we must encircle Iran with missile defense and make it clear that any missile fired from Iran aimed at any of our allies would be considered an attack on the United States requiring a full retaliatory response.   This is the same language that President Kennedy used in the Cuban Missile Crisis against the old Soviet Union.   What other choices would we have if we allow Iran to develop and maintain nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them.   This is just one more example of Obama's feckless and incompetent foreign policy that endangers our nation.
