Big deal. Iran gives the world threats and promises; but they always give Israel rocket attacks

Reader comment on item: If Tehran Turns Down the Nuclear Deal

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Aug 22, 2015 at 20:52

I fail to get excited about what Iran does with this deal. Hizbullah has already started firing rockets at Israel, before the ink is even dry. The US, as usual, has offered more promises to Israel but nothing to convince anyone that they have Israel's interests at heart. If Iran rejects the deal, cheats on the deal, spits on the deal axxepts the deal, whatever, I think the US response will be the same in every case -- inaction, coupled with continued negotiations to facilitate big money investors in the Iranian market. I believe the powers that be, on all sides, have discounted the possibility of a nuclear war, which is almost a guarantee that it will be upon us when nobody is expecting it.

Israel, meanwhile, is walking the usual tightrope between appropriate response to endless provocations and enemy propaganda of casualties, etc.
