    This whole deal is just theater to mask the true purpose of these so-called negotiations.The real purpose to all of these crazy talks is to completely destroy the sanctions imposed on Iran.When that is done the Bankers & International Oligarchs can swoop in on all of those huge profits to be had doing business with Iran!If this were to cause an arms race in the Middle East that would be even better,the weapons merchants could then sell armaments to the Arabs as well.There’s a fortune to be made selling weapons to Iran & it’s Arab enemies.But first the sanction need to go!As far as Obama is concerned,he is just a paid mouth piece & front man for the Wealthy elite!

    If the White circumvents Congressional debate over a final deal with Iran and, therefore, foregoes the Congressional constitutional right as expressed in the US Constitution regarding checks-and-balances among the three branches of government or if President Obama vetoes a joint congressional move to block such negotiations with Iran, I aver that President Obama should be impeached on the grounds of overstepping his authority as the head of the executive branch and acing as a demagogue attempting to force a unilateral ruling on a vital US foreign policy.

    Obama cannot be trusted on the Iran deal. Senat must legislate for debate and approval before any deal is signed.

    Or what? – Team Obama will weaponize the DOJ and the IRS to punish their enemies? They are already doing that.
