This is a big deal:
Geneva — Iran and six world powers reached a breakthrough agreement early on Sunday to curb Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief, in a first step towards resolving a dangerous decade-old standoff.
The deal between the Islamic state and the United States, France, Germany, Britain, China and Russia was nailed down after more than four days of negotiations.
The White House Fact Sheet reads like the foreign policy triumph for the ages that it is.
When reached for comment, Republicans, bona fide warmongers and their useful idiots in the eye-rolling mainstream press determined that this is already just another failure of leadership and desperation by a lame-duck president still trying to distance himself from his only real achievement: Landmark healthcare insurance reform– which has since been forever and ever deemed a colossal failure because the American media, still obsessed with pretending that Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush weren’t paranoid, smiling psychopathic mass-murderers and race-baiters-at-heart say so.
Republican leaders all but declared “The American people deserve the highest standards in fake, saber-rattling leadership and clandestine bloodshed and this sort of tangible progress and success is not what the American people and mainstream press are accustomed to!”
After decades of aiding and abetting Republican policies that made trading arms for hostages to fund Right wing death squads in Central America an act of free-market peacekeeping, or propping up a brutal dictator in Saddam Hussein with all manner of chemical weapons to kill millions of Iranians and Iraqis and calling it “leadership,” to all non-sadists and peace-lovers alike, this is another ‘big fucking deal’ for an administration that keeps on making history, while the aristocrat choir sings songs of division and manufactured dissent.
For the sake of downplaying this administration’s direct role in all this, corporate media headlines today might read: “Victory For World Powers.”
But make no mistake. This is another win and another huge “first” in a long line of firsts for the Obama administration which just keeps moving us forward despite the nagging fat asses of soft-racism slowing us up to complain the whole way about the alleged lies and tyrannical policies that brought them better health insurance, record DOW and S&P, reduced deficit, stable gas prices, less nukes, financial sector accountability, saved the U.S. auto industry, blah, blah, blah.
The president earned every bit of his Nobel Peace Prize this weekend, which should drive his buffoonish critics to new lows to explain away his mastery of presidential politics on the world stage.
You’ve never seen anything like this before, America. ‘Hope and Change’ are alive and well, despite the best efforts of saboteurs and the cynics to see it destroyed.
This is exactly why we elected Barack Obama.
