Here's why Krauthammer's analysis of Obama's Iran deal is the smartest -- and most terrifying -- so far

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I'm a big fan of conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer. Yesterday, he wrote a column about the deal Obama struck with Iran that left me convinced -- and terrified.

Krauthammer says the deal was even worse than he imagined.

He says it makes far too many concession to the mullahs, from lifting sanctions to giving up "any time, any where" inspections, to doing nothing to free American hostages.

But Krauthammer notices something that hardly anyone else has:

That Congress won't get to vote on the deal until September, but Obama has already taken the agreement to the UN Security Council for approval, which it will surely receive.

So even if Congress -- you know, the elected representatives of the American people -- vote against the deal, it won't matter.

WOW. Thanks to Obama, we can see dark days ahead. Does he not understand when Iranians chant “Death To America”? The worlds most powerful man. And Iran still has four American hostages.

Interesting, I don’t think the Nobel Committee should wait for Obama to give back his Peace Prize – the Pentagon just recently stated the US was in a state of perpetual war – I think, if the Nobel Committee wanted to salvage any reputation they may have left, they’d take it back.

Too late. The U.S. has been beaten by both Iran and Cuba. Not a shot fired. Obama threw in the towel. The U.S. people better get used to being told how things are gonna be from now on.

Randy said, “That’s the legacy Obama will be remembered for, not the peace!”

Think he will give back him Nobel Peace Prize?

How much time do we have with Iran?
What of Russia, N. Korea, China, and ISIS?

Obama was well trained by Saul Alinsky but the low information voters in the U.S.A.do not know this.

What would suspect of a President that doesn’t stand up for American interests or values! What would one suspect of a President that says the muslim brotherhood are not the enemy but friends. What would one suspect of a President that was born to a Muslim father and raised by another Muslim! I understand exactly what he is doing here. He is selling out his nation in spite of the Jewish nation which he hates so much! World war 3 will soon be upon us if Iran ever points a missile at Israel. That’s the legacy Obama will be remembered for, not the peace!

Weeks ago, Obama clearly said he would not let Congress scuttle this deal. Why wouldn’t we believe him?

Maybe Iran will end up facing off with China. Maybe even add Russia into the deal. Russia, Iran, Syria and Pakistan against China, India and Israel. And the smaller interests like Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, Lebanon, Palestine, etc., added to the messy mix.

World alliances are shifting. We may be wise to focus on building our North and South America securities and our trade partnerships with Pacific interests to be able to best help our allies in the middle east if and when the need arises.

Prince Knight said, “will have its headquarters in Babylon…”

Full circle. Gen. 11

It never occurred to me before to question why the coming One World Government will have its headquarters in Babylon… Hmmm…

Ezra, please send copies of this to Chris Alexander, Harper etc.

The Community Organizer has arranged advanced weaponry for the Shia community, that is what he does. He brings “Hope” for those unfortunate apocalyptic mullahs, without the means to destroy civilisation. The only bright spot on this agreement is, Iranian scientists have spend decades trying to copy 7 decade old technolog. The Manhattan Project ran for 4 years, and in that time developed working devices from a theory. If the Manhattan project was staffed by Iranian scientists, the atomic bomb would still be theoretical .

World War III. Nuclear by the looks of it. Terrifying! Obama. A traitor!

WW3 in the making.

Valerie Jarret is running a lot of this nonsense coupled with Obama who sympathizes with Iran. Jarret was born in Iran and is one of many Red Diaper Babies in the Obama administration.

In my personal opinion this is not just a misguided peace deal it is more likely a guarantee of war and escalated terrorism.

ALEX BALDOR, “US will suffer the consequences of this treachery at the highest level of its administration for many generation to come and will essentially end the American era that was built by the sweat and blood of the pioneers and their successor for over 300 years and turned to dust”. Indeed! More terrifying is who will fill that vacuum as a result of the demise of the U.S.?

Thanks Ezra. It probably was through you that I first heard of Krauthammer, and I agree, he sure
sounds like he knows what he is talking about. I’ll introduce myself, I don’t, for one minute, trust Iran, I do not like, nor trust Obama.
Remember Netanyahu at the UN, drawing a Red Line? I’ve also heard it , very recently, said, that Iran could have a nuke in 3 months time. Then all cards/deals are off the table.
This deal is supposedly to give the world 15 years to adapt. Like N. Korea?
What say the rest of you?

From True North’s post, "They claimed that Obama’s stated determination to change the very nature of his country was a threat not a promise. "
And it wasn’t an empty threat. He and Michelle both, have had agenda that had nothing to do with keeping America strong, for decades, separately, and as a couple, they have changed the game. How the hell did this happen, Was this all it took?
Asleep at the wheel for a nano second and the West as we know it is crashing down around our ears.

Baraq Hussein Obama is a Shia Muslim as his name implies Baraq was Mohamed winged horse . Hussein was the grand son of Mohamed that was killed in the battle of Karbala. What he did with this agreement is to empower Iran the dominant Shia Muslim country to have all what it needs to balance the nuclear and conventional armament of the Sunni Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt and Saudia. He does not give a rat ass about the US or Israel the big Satan or the small Satan. US will suffer the consequences of this treachery at the highest level of its administration for many generation to come and will essentially end the American era that was built by the sweat and blood of the pioneers and their successor for over 300 years and turned to dust by pot smoking entitlement seeking brainwashed riffraff within 2 generations

Something appears seriously wrong with America’s republicans. They claim to have more than sufficient grounds to impeach Obama yet they sit their fat fannies, doing nothing while their president runs roughshod over their constitution. From what we have been able to ascertain, the Iran deal is a catastrophe that will come back to haunt the world, and ensure that Iran gets the bomb, sooner rather than later. It’s pretty obvious that the UN has never lived up to its billing and should be defunded and disbanded. It’s become nothing but a home for despots and tyrants hell bent on controlling the world through their one world order. Whether the UN approves the deal or not, if the U.S. Congress grows a pair and steps up, and turns thumbs down on the deal, that should at least send a message to everyone, that its a deal with the devil. Canada should also be congratulated for speaking out against Iran, closing its embassies and removing its diplomats. Now if they would just lead the way by defunding the UN and calling for its closure.

Simon – this so called president is a traitor, and should hung by those ears until they fall off. This guy is a dictator and is a narcissistic freak. And he still has another year and half, to totally undermine the country that give him supreme authority. What a slap in the face to American’s that he went to the UN, and not his own country. I bet he is going to head the UN, and I hope Harper get’s another majority and stands against him on the world stage.

Obama has shown repeatedly, his willingness to subvert the democratic process, so we should not be surprised that he has taken this ‘deal’ to the U.N. for approval rather than his own government. He is determined to ensure his legacy at any cost and that cost may well be the United States of America and her future. When he first came to power there was a group of people who claimed that he did not have his nation’s best interests at heart; that he was a racist and a would-be dictator. They claimed that Obama’s stated determination to change the very nature of his country was a threat not a promise. They were labeled ‘haters’, ‘racists’, ‘right wing crackers’ and worse.

Well guess what .. .. … . . .. ?

I fear for my great-grand daughter. I had such high hopes for this man, but he will be remembered as what? The worst president ever or more likely even lower than that.

With all respect, Al, what else is a dictator’s errand boy supposed to say to his people—”We didn’t get exactly what we wanted"? It’s a weak argument if I have to accept anything President Rouhani says—words channeled from the Ayatollah himself—as truth. Some Iranian people have limited access to the internet through satellites—what are they saying?

Liza Rosie : I agree with you about Obama .
We are living in dagerous times .
I take to heart the lines from " In Flanders Field"
“Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from failing hands we throw the Torch; Be your’s to hold it high. If ye breath Faith with us who die we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders Field”
The Torch has been thrown. It is ours now to hold high.We have a hard act to follow but I think we are up to it.

Iran is the lion. The US (Obama ) is the mouse, the US cowered to Iran, Iran is the winner in this agreement.
Here is how Iran saw the deal and how much the US backtracked giving Iran pretty well all they wanted
Watch the video of the Supreme Leader telling is country of the deal, although the end i am not inclined to believe given his death to America stance,which is echoed throughout the country
commented 2015-07-21 21:03:39 -0400
Obama knows exactly what he is doing and I don’t think anyone can really believe what that is yet. Who would have ever thought we would have a pres in the U.S. making ANY deals with Iran. I was reading that he took it to the UN first and I was incredulous. He will do anything to see his agenda play out. anything.
Scary times. He loves something, but it isn’t America.
No deal, and a heavier hand was infinitely better. Now we have nothing to keep these lunatics who tell us repeatedly how much they hate us, in check.

Peace Deal? Death to America? “I did not come to bring peace, but to deliver the sword” Jesus Christ. Pray fellow rebels. Anarchy is at hand. We stand on guard for Thee
