Is the man serious? Is the joke about the State Department needing an "American desk" accurate?
Simply demanding Iran's capitulation is no way to get a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday as he wrapped up three days of talks with a veiled dig at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
I wasn't a droning senator for years--and don't own any spandex--but I think demanding Iran's capitulation is exactly how to get a nuclear deal that prevents Iran from going nuclear rather than one that gets Kerry a Nobel Peace Prize.
I think squeezing Iran until they believe that only having to give up their nuclear ambitions is a glorious win is exactly what we need to do.
But no, Kerry apparently believes that being the honest broker about whether Iran can kill millions of people in a nuclear Holocaust as they want or nobody as we want is the subject of give and take.
And Kerry is considered our least effective Secretary of State? Incroyable!
