JNS.org – President Barack Obama has reportedly said that the odds of world powers reaching a nuclear deal with Iran are “less than 50-50.”

During a dinner with Senate Democrats on Tuesday evening, Obama said he thought the chances of arriving at a deal “were less than 50-50 at this point and that he wouldn’t agree to something he thought was weak or unenforceable,” U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said in an interview with Politico on Wednesday.

“But if [Obama] comes up with an agreement and it meets his standards, he wanted us to take an honest look at it and not prejudge,” added Durbin.

According to the report, Obama sounded pessimistic concerning a nuclear deal with Iran as the negotiations missed yet another self-imposed deadline on July 7, while he also tried to assure Senate Democratic leaders that he would be willing to walk away from a bad deal with the Islamic Republic.

“He said, ‘Don’t get nervous, don’t get concerned about statements by the supreme leader, about statements in the press.I am not going to sign a deal where we can’t assure that we’ve blocked all pathways to a bomb for Iran.’ I found that very reassuring,” U.S. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said.

    And the odds Obama is telling you the truth are something the equivalent of 1%to 100 and that is giving him the benefit of the doubt. His generals have concluded Russia, China, and Isis are the biggest threat to America. The truth being, Obama, The extreme left, Isis and Iran are the biggest threats not only to America but to any country who will not subjicate their civilization to Islam. Our administration is using Russia and China as a smoke screen to hide what Islam is preparing to do to America. Death to America, and death to Israel. Russia and China need not attack America…they need to protect their borders and watch America melt down under Obamas reign.

    President Obama has come a long way and is probably now in line with public opinion — and common sense. Every time the Iranian leaders open their mouths they make it clearer they will not take much notice of any agreement that holds back their bankrolling of terrorism in the Middle East.
