What can possibly be the motivation of the Obama Administration in regards to the Iran "peace' negotiations? Does anyone actually think Iran can be trusted? The White House and the democrats seem to. What could garner such machinations one wonders? Is it an attempt at legacy building, are Secretary Of State John Kerry and the other members of the Executive Branch just a heck of a lot smarter than the rest of us and historical data, or are they deliberately saboteurs or maybe just plain fools? One may only have to speculate on these questions.
It seems as though Iran has no compunction to follow any of whatever agreements that were allegedly reached. It seems as if some members of the Iranian government is even saying so loudly and plainly. Indeed, according to an article written in the Financial Times, dated November 29, 2013 6:58 pm,
"Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s new president, has insisted that Tehran will not dismantle its nuclear facilities, as advocated by Israel and US hawks but has held out hope for an end to its long estrangement with Washington.One can only imagine the mischief ripening in the minds of the enemies of the United States, for our enemies, and or, adversaries need only wait us out to eventually join together when their numbers are sufficient enough, to contemplate the notion of actually bringing us to defeat. It seems as if time is indeed, on the side of our foes, while we continue to be a nation bent on suicide.
In an interview with the Financial Times in Tehran, Mr Rouhani struck a tough line on Iran’s expectations over a comprehensive nuclear deal to be negotiated following last weekend’s landmark interim pact.
“One hundred per cent [no],” he said when asked about dismantling nuclear facilities."
Here's an article from The Washington Times whose author seems to echo similar concerns:
It’s not just the Iranians measuring the president twice before cutting him once. China has drawn an unusual “air-defense zone” in the East China Sea meant to test the resolve of Japan, South Korea and above all the United States, to see who if anyone will try to do anything about it. The first Chinese aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, was dispatched to the area on a training mission, innocent enough but intended to show that Beijing is big enough to back up a threat. This is supposed to be a dispute between China and Japan over a few uninhabited islands in the East China Sea. It’s true that all real estate is about location, location, location, but this dispute is useful in other ways.
