White House Offers Rebuttal Before Netanyahu’s SpeechNo. False. The alternative is to destroy the facilities. They are an avowed enemy who has openly declared their intent to destroy Israel and the Great Satan, the USA. This is mere appeasement, and will not work as anyone who has read any actual history knows. No one in the administration cares what will happen to Israel after Iran gets the bomb. Nor do they care what happens to the USA, apparently, as they march toward its destruction.
"Just four days before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to a joint meeting of Congress, the Obama administration sought on Friday to refute the Israeli leader’s expected critique, arguing that he has failed to present a feasible alternative to American proposals for constraining Iran’s nuclear program.
In a briefing for reporters, senior administration officials contended that even an imperfect agreement that kept Iran’s nuclear efforts frozen for an extended period was preferable to a breakdown in talks that could allow the leadership in Tehran unfettered ability to produce enriched uranium and plutonium.
“The alternative to not having a deal is losing inspections,” said one senior official, who would not be quoted by name under conditions that the administration set for the briefing, “and an Iran ever closer to having the fissile material to manufacture a weapon.”
It's interesting to see Obama eviscerate US military, the economy, and foreign influence, while rapidly increasing control of US internal affairs by reducing freedoms virtually daily. He said before his first election that he favored positive rights, which means that the population gets only those rights which are specifically stated as rights by the government. And that is nearly here and would take only a little tumble from his pen in the direction of "security" and "hate thought".
Congress is now trivial; it is controlled by cowardly Bosses in both chambers, an unintended consequence of non-constitutional house and senate "rules" and "leaders". Even so, it has been completely neutered by Obama's challenge to veto any attempt to control him. The dictatorship is now blatantly out in the open, and without a coup, will not be stopped.
The fault lies in the culture, which has been corrupted over generations - generations which have been stabilized in their ignorance and self-righteous entitlement. That's how Obama got elected; that's how the Democrats still own enough of the government to stop impeachment. The very fabric of the nation, starting with its minds and moral sense, has been divested and self-righteous totalitarianism has been installed as the new Social Justice.
