Iran nuke talks break down

Walter Russell Mead, sharp as ever, on the futility of the current round of negotiations with Iran:

The failure to strike a deal in Moscow also means that the U.S. and EU will likely implement their full range of sanctions, beginning July 1, and which are expected to cost the Iranian economy $4.5 billion a month in lost oil revenues. That’s not chump change, and once the full effect of the sanctions kick in there might be some movement on the Iranian side. But if, as appears increasingly likely, Tehran has made the calculation that it is willing to do whatever it takes to acquire a nuclear weapon, then no amount of pressure will force Iran to fold its hand.

Read the whole thing.

    Everyone of us should reread Ezekiel 38 and 39. The Lord puts it into the minds and puts a hook into the nose of all of the nations around Israel to go up against her, so that He can display His glory to Israel and to the nations when he lays those nations waste that went up against her. God knows what those nations are thinking and saying. All of the murderous, unjust, and hateful grumbling of those peoples. I am so glad God’s hand is upon this situation.

    I am Praying for Israel. I know God has his eye on Israel and that it will not be destroyed, the Jewish people.

    When R people going to realize that Iran is not going to stop going after nuks no matter what any country says or does. Obama will not go after Iran. He put some pressure on the Iranian bank to stop them from trading oil. So China started buying it with gold from Iran. On the other hand, God has never taken Israel into battle without the odds being against them. They were so out numbered there is no way they should have survived. But looking back at those wars, it was God Almighty who did the action not Israel. They R still His chosen people and nothing will ever change that. Isn’t it wounderful that Germany gave Israel 6 submirines.

    I would never trust the Iranians. We have a phrase the says. “When you go to sleep, always sleep with one eye open” because you don’t know when they can come and hurt you.

    He who keeps Israel ( the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) neither slumbers nor sleeps! Also read the prophet Zachariah 14:12, and don’t dare be guilty of touching Jerusalme, the apple of HIS EYE !!!! read the results if you do and this applies to any and all nations! It is a promise from God Almighty!!
