This is a rant and there is more whining than solutions, but it makes several good points.
If we let America’s current poisoned partisan political BS to let us play the blame game we’ll lose sight of the goal: preventing nuclear capability for a government which clearly has evil aims.
The blame game is very popular right now because it creates sound and fury, but we all know what that signifies.
We need to return to something our political system excels at: coming together to face a common enemy. Our country is really good at this. Really good.
We even do it when the reasons are all lies. I disagree with the writer though. We may be distracted, but we’re never so tired that we can’t come together to impose our will on the despots of the world.
As the writer says about the settlements in Israel, we can’t negotiate while Iran is still producing nuclear material.
