Obama: 'Give Peace a Chance' (Gives in to Iran)

President Barack Obama talked briefly about the Iran nuclear deal and said "give peace a chance." Via the pool report:

    Pres. Obama said the implementation agreement finalized over the weekend gives the parties "the time and space" to reach a comprehensive accord.

    "It's going to be difficult, it's going to be challenging, but ultimately this is how diplomacy should work."

    "If Iran is willing to walk through the door of opportunity that's presented to them" then the country and its people will benefit.

    "If they fail to walk through this door of opportunity, then we are in position to reverse the interim agreement and put in place additional pressure to make sure that Iran does not develop a nuclear weapon."

    "My preference is for peace and diplomacy, and this is one of the reasons why I've sent the message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions, now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work."

    "What we want to do is give diplomacy a chance, and give peace a chance."

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Neville Chamberlain:  give peace a chance. :nono:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
