Hillary to U.S. Jews at AJC: Iran Nuclear Talks Should Be Given a Chance Before New SanctionsTopics: Iran
And she says so even though she admits the odds of reaching a comprehensive agreement aren't good. In other words, take a gamble on Iran not using the talks and the interim agreement to buy more time to build a nuclear bomb. This, despite the fact that the positions between Iran and the world powers diverge widely.
And then there's the fact that Putin has already said it may likely say 'Nyet' to those talks in order to counter expanded sanctions by the United States and the European Union over Crimea.
Via The Jerusalem Post:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that nuclear negotiations with Iran should be given a chance and warned Congress against imposing new sanctions.More here ...
Clinton, speaking Wednesday night at an American Jewish Congress gala in New York, credited international sanctions that she worked to implement with bringing Iran to the negotiating table. She stressed the importance of pursuing the current multinational talks aimed at reaching an agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.
"Now, the odds of reaching that comprehensive agreement are not good. President Obama has said that," Clinton said at the dinner, where she was presented with AJCongress' Stephen S. Wise Award. "I'm also personally skeptical that the Iranians would follow through and deliver. I have seen their behavior over years. But this is a development that is worth testing."
Hillary admits that she is "skeptical that the Iranians would follow through and deliver" because she's "seen their behavior over years" ... yet she believes that this time will be different? And she thinks U.S. Jews (and the world) should gamble on the world's biggest supporter of terrorism following an agreement not to complete it's nuclear bomb program?
Did we all just fall off the turnip truck yesterday?
Meanwhile, Israel's 2014 military budget includes at least $2 billion devoted to preparations for a strike on Iran.
