The $100 billion dollars returned to Iran, were 35 years of confiscated Iranian funds. Had we confiscated any Israeli funds, Tel aviv would have demanded payment "with interest". The other five nations have determined the Iranian agreement prevents Iran from developing any nuclear boom now,and possibly in the future. Prior to the agreement, Israel had been threatening a pre emptied attack on Iran for years, which would have precipitated a major Mid Eastern war with Iran and her allies. Least we forget, Iran does have Russia, China, North Korea, and other nuclear allies. To date Iran has no ICBM's and no delivery system. In the nuclear ban agreement,their never was a stipulation of nuclear verification on demand any time, any place, that's a GOP "political ploy",provision. Fortunately the Five nation coalition dose not rely on the Republican, obstructionist, anti administration party to negotiate nuclear agreements. To reiterate, "well played Pres. Obama and company". Now let Russian, Iranian and Syrian boots deal with ISIS. it's their territory to defend not ours. As for Tel aviv's objections, it's time that the little Israeli tail stops waging the big U.S. dog.
Bomb them all Vlad, let their Allah sort them out. Syria has been a Russian allies for years, their almost neighbors. Ruski military bases have been their for a long time, their boots belong their, ours do not.
"The enemy of my enemy, is my allies." The benefits from this Iranian nuclear agreement, just keep getting better and better. Well played, Pres. Obama and company.
Actually ,with uncle Joe Biden gaining voter share, as a back up Democratic candidate; Hillary loses voter share. With Uncle Joe out of the candidacy, Hillary polls over 53%. It's a long time till the final primary's. Plenty of time for endless GOP malicious allegations , and slanderous verbal attacks. The Clintons haven't begun to fig back yet . Waiting for Jeb to be the GOP front runner, then the kid gloves come off, and the real fight begins. It will be Just like the last Clinton vs. Bush fight, with the same outcome, and the election of the First Lady, President in U.S. History... Americans like making history.
You don't disregard the message because of a misplaced coma. The GOP always have been the masters of the "Big lies", from "weapons of mass destruction", to the frivolous "E-mail allegation's", that the FBI are daily proving to be baseless.
Johnny B. was at least wiling to speak across the isle, The next GOP governmental obstructionist will just keep shutting the place down. That's the typical Republican system of governmental leadership. Do it the GOP way, or no way. To think they believe this will get the next "Bush" elected.
If stabilizing the price of crude means taking more off shore drilling rigs off line, how can that be good for RIG? Sold the last of my Oct puts . New oil drilling prospects very unfavorable, near term.
The extreme right wing membership of the GOP and their supporters, won't be satisfied until there are more Republican forced shut downs. Typical GOP method of governing..
Not to worry, with a Republican congress, and all those pharma lobbyists controlling the congressman on all those special committees, the public and medicare/medicade will continue being billed, and paying $10 for the same pill that is being sold in Canada for 50 cents. Expect a temporary pull back in pharma for a week or so, creating good new, lower entry points if you like the sector. When Bill was pres. and PFE was cheap, I and a lot of others first got into the pharm sector... Waiting to buy in again, on a major pull back..
I believe that was $20/ barrel WTI. The Clinton years saw WTI under $12/barrel, but that's not very likely again.
