And now we get word that the Iranians seized a US-flagged ship this week. What does that mean? That means that a ship, bearing a US flag, was intercepted out of an “internationally recognized maritime route” by Iranian ships. Not to worry, the Iranians asked nicely… the first time. But when the ship declined the intercept, Iran fired a few warning shots to make their point. At which time, the ship complied.

Iran, such a peaceful nation who honors international agreements. Aren’t we all glad that President Obama is brokering a deal with them for further nuclear development?

Oh, and since they haven’t really liked any of the “deals” he’s come up with so far… he’s now suggesting a “signing bonus” to the tune of $1.7 trillion!!! And what are WE (and the rest of the international community, especially Israel) getting in return for such concessions? *** crickets ***

You just can’t make this stuff up!

It would appear that “The Art of Successful Negotiations” was not taught at whatever college President Obama attended. I’m thinking he should take a night class.
