The July 31 Point of View “In Iran deal, hope wins” is an example of an idealistic thought process that is blind and deaf to the real world. A biased version of Iran/United States history is listed.
I won’t recite mistakes our country has made, and I certainly refuse to apologize for them. No country in the history of governments has been as benevolent or offered up as much blood of our young men and women to defend the rights of others as has the United States.
Iran has been our enemy since the 1970s. Repeated efforts for peace failed with different regimes along with attempts to halt the disaster of another nuclear power. Now we have John Kerry trying to peddle what he calls a nuclear agreement.
It does not qualify as a treaty. And he admittedly does not know the detail of its structure.
The author of your Point of View used some powerful words. War is to be avoided “no matter the cost.”
One has to wonder whether he would feel the same if his home were in Tel Aviv instead of the United States.
