Os Prisoners for Nukes Deal

Last week, just hours before Our Dear Leader's last State of the Union Address (SOTU), 10 American sailors were captured by elements of the Iranian navy.

Fortunately, they were released and have apparently suffered no physical harm.  However, the humiliating treatment of our sailors has been a hot-button topic, especially upon hearing things like their captors told them to "act happy."

While on the subject of Americans held by Iran, yesterday it was announced that four prisoners, including a long-held pastor, will be released.

Of course the Obama Administration is ecstatic over how, by concluding the Nuke Deal, they avoided some 21st Century version of the War of Jenkins' Ear.

Yesterday, sanctions were, or are in the process of being lifted against Iran

Yeah, "...and there was much rejoicing."

Despite all this on-the-surface good news, us like-minded folks, especially Bibi, aren't happy about giving-in to Iran.

To put it bluntly:  We haven't trusted the Iranian government since Iran Hostage Crisis.

Since then, Iran has a history of humiliating others when given the opportunity--or more likely, seeking the opportunity--to do so.

Once the mullahs are flush with cash, we won't be surprised by more such non-nuclear actions--or worse--in the future...
