How are tougher sanctions going to stop the nuclear program? Squeeze tight enough and you end up with a mess. Besides not everyone is agreeing with sanctions. We still have North Korea, China and Russia who don't go along and enjoy seeing us tied down in the mid east. No mention of tougher sanctions was even suggested in the speech, just a call for a better deal or war. No explanation was given of what a better deal would mean other than total capitulation by Iran including recognition of Israel. You might notice that Iran under sanctions has been able to expand it's military, finance war against ISIS and develop new weapons systems.
Isis is largely Saddams old army which was removed from power and the country was given to the Shiites. Later in the surge Bush armed the Sunni Militia who have morphed in to elements of ISIS. None of this would have happened without the Bush invasion of Iraq, Bush did take the troops out of Iraq, He negotiated the SOF agreement with Malik that established the timetable and total withdrawal.
You need to listen. The alternative to an agreement is war. Without an agreement Iran will definitely develop a nuke. We have stated we will not permit that. He also said Israel would not stand by and that he expects the USA to have his back. I would support Israel against Iran but war is the last resort and not near as good as a diplomatic solution on which an enduring peace may someday be reached.
"The Act is categorized into sixteen titles and, by one law firm's count, it requires that regulators create 243 rules, conduct 67 studies, and issue 22 periodic reports.
The stated aim of the legislation is:
To promote the financial stability of the United States by improving accountability and transparency in the financial system, to end "too big to fail", to protect the American taxpayer by ending bailouts, to protect consumers from abusive financial services practices, and for other purposes."
Where would you like to start?
Risk yes, but so far unrealized . The dollar is strengthening and the US economy is still the strongest in the world and the best place for any international investor to place his money. Maybe you would like to own rubles?
The wing dings side with anyone who flaunts monolithic power and wealth.
Iraq was screwed up from the get-go. Obama just let the Bush SOF agreement run its course. Any fantasy you have about him being able to leave a fighting force there is a display of ignorance.
I wonder then why his own intelligence agency disagrees with him?
I never mentioned shovel ready jobs. That is your fantasy. The government has Hillary's E-mails wherever they were. As old as the government computer system is, she was probably pretty smart to use her own. Now do you have anything cogent to the conversation to contribute? I didn't think so.
Only because it isn't over yet. Last quarter many had record sales starting with Apple.
