    This is the perfect time for Obama and Kerry to apply leverage against Iran, while we have that leverage.

    Iran wants us to help then against ISIS?

    Well . . . Just MAYBE we can do a little something for them . . . IF . . . they agree to our terms regarding their nuclear program.

    It's the same old story coming from Iran that has been happening for decades. They maintain negotiations just enough to delay and buy more time as their nuclear weapons program proceeds almost uninhibited. They say just enough to make the Western world hopeful, but then let everyone down a few months later when the delay process becomes more difficult.

    For the life of me, I don't understand why the U.S. delegation can't see and understand this. It seems so obvious to most objective observers.

    Iran remains single track minded. They have vowed time and time again to eliminate Israel. The most obvious and expeditious way to do that would be with nuclear weapons. It's no wonder whatsoever that Israel is more nervous and anxious over the current situation than those doing the negotiating. To the negotiators, it's just an ongoing job that drags on. To Israel, it's their very existence at stake.

    Most of us wouldn't blame Israel if they end up having to act unilaterally in stopping Iran's ambitious and ill-conceived nuclear weapons program that would disrupt the balance of power in the Middle East if allowed to proceed.
