American diplomacy with the country may ease tension over their nuclear program. But to the racist right, it's another failure created by President Barack Obama.
Since 1979, the United States has cut ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran. The two nations were feuding over the nuclear weapons that the country possibly has.
It was dubbed the one of the nations in the "AXIS OF EVIL" speech (I meant State of The Union) by then president George W. Bush.
It was announced on Friday, that President Barack Obama had talked to the nation's leader, Hassan Rouhani. A sign that the two are willing to work together for the better.
The ice is slowly melting with the two nations. But to the racist right here in the United States and over in Israel, it's appeasement. It's supporting a terrorist nation. It's the Muslim Obama supporting the Muslim dictatorship.
Israel's hardline prime minister Benjamin Netanyuhu has been the most skeptical of the Iranian government.
He allied with Republican and conservative agitators to slam the decision by Obama to talk to Rouhani.
The prime minster had drew out a cartoonish bomb detailing the possibility of the nation being closer to the nuclear bomb. So I would expect that our usual agitators would word vomit about the situation.
But what about the you can't fix stupid crowd and their word vomits.
The armchair warriors had their say.
So I guess my thoughts on the matter are simple: If the way to diplomacy is one phone call, then President Barack Obama done the right thing. The racist right will always criticize the move. They have nothing more than utter disrespect for the first Black president.
The call came after U.S. officials said earlier this week that the two would not meet at the U.N. General Assembly. The officials said that a meeting would be too "complicated" for the Iranians given the country's internal politics.
"The two of us discussed our ongoing efforts to reach an agreement over Iran's nuclear program," said Obama. "I reiterated to President Rouhani what I said in New York: while there were surely be important obstacles to moving forward and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive solution."
"Resolving this issue could serve as a major step forward in a new relationship between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect," he said.
