Obama and Kerry are telling us the Iran nuke deal is the only option, it will prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon (for a few years), and anyone opposed to the deal is basically uninformed and misguided, including Democrat senators with expertise in national security who oppose Obama’s deal.
Obama has enough votes lined up to prevent a veto override should Congress object to the deal. If Congress rejects the deal, Obama will veto their objection and sign the deal. Consequently, the will of The People expressed through their elected representatives is irrelevant, given the wisdom emanating from the White House. (A clear majority of Americans strongly oppose the Iranian nuke deal.)
Speaking of wisdom, any deal involves an assessment of trustworthiness: can you trust the other side to honor the agreement? This is the heart of the matter. Can America trust Iran? If there is no trust, or if it is likely the other side will violate the deal, there is no reason to enter an agreement. It becomes a futile exercise. In this light, a few questions arise, and answers are offered.
Has Iran honored all its agreements with the United States? IRAN HAS BEEN VIOLATING TREATIES & AGREEMENTS FOR MANY DECADES with everyone!

Is there any reason to believe Iran will start honoring agreements? HILLARY DOES NOT TRUST IRAN.
Is Iran at war with the U.S., Britain and the State of Israel?
Can there be any question Obama’s nuke deal, regardless of its content, is a fool’s errand in the face of such overwhelming evidence Iran has absolutely no intention of abiding its terms? Is it as clear as day that Iran has every intention of developing an arsenal of nuclear weapons with delivery systems capable of launching attacks against America, Britain and Israel?
If the answer to both questions is ‘yes,’ why on earth are free people allowing their government to enter a suicide pact?
