US Says Iran Talks Will Continue Past the Deadline Through Tomorrow; French, German Delegations Say They're Leaving at 6am
— Ace

Six am, I guess, would be 12:00 midnight on the east coast USA, so I guess we'll soon know if this is a complete rupture in the P5+1, or, maybe, merely a bargaining strategy by France and Germany to get Iran to concede something.

If it were the latter, wouldn't the US have joined them as well? Why signal a split in the parties? And why are we leaving it to France to be the hawkish party here?

But I think AllahPundit's hunch of a mere bargaining strategy may be right, for one reason: because Life Is Terrible.

If he's wrong: then I cannot think of a greater foreign policy humiliation to our Choom King than for our allies France and Germany to walk away, implicitly condemning him as too soft and too leftwing.

72 I've remained mystified why this administration believes ; 1. Iran even if agreed would stick to an agreement. 2. Why they say , Irans saying kill the americans or kill the israelis is only for their followers and not meant to be a srs threat to anyone because that's how SANE leaders speak. and of course they are Sane . coughing. 3. we all know they have supported killing our soldiers , sponsored terrorists hamas and , hezbollah among other terrorists groups . 4. why they think turning our backs on long term allies to 'make Obama look like he won something/(really)nothing at all' is good for Him or america or our allies. 5. That they don't believe Iran would make the bomb secretly , and not threaten the mid east in general to be top dog and control the area? 6. that they don't understand the M.E won't stand for an Iranian hegemony and will instead bring more war and an arms race in the M.E. for control.

111 Iran will continue to develop a nuclear weapon whether an agreement is reached or not. It's so obvious I feel embarrassed for the negotiators. I say that Iran will not walk away from an agreement because they need it as a cover for their continued work.

117 The entire premise of these negotiations is a joke. We know Iran wants a bomb not peaceful energy so supposedly we want to stop them. Iran knows we know they want the bomb and they have no intention of turning back. And they also know that we won't do shit to enforce any deal. If we "win" and get a deal it will be weak and we won't do shit to enforce it. If we lose and there is no deal then Iran has bought months of lighter sanctions and keeps on keeping on. There is no way we can win and no way Iran can lose. Smart Power.

139 AnnaPuma. What's the most effective deep ground / hardened bunker penetrating delivery unit? Is it an aircraft delivered device, or ICBM? I'd imagine a dozen such at the right spots would shut their program right down. Even if not direct hits, the seismic effects ought to knock everything off of it's mounts, at least. Certainly, too, the defense boffins have run the maths on the geographic separation and delivery intervals on these, so as to generate the greatest harmonic resonance in the strata.... use the multiplied harmonics to wreak even greater havoc on the targeted sites?

The religious ruling council must be disbanded, and half of all mosques set aside for Christians and other religions. 2. Recognize Israel with it's 67 boundaries. 3. Stop all terrorist funding. Iran would never accept it but it would cause a split back home. I always thought the US should have played up the Persian side of Iran's culture to drive a wedge between it and the Islamic world. Islam has been a disaster for that country.

Nothing good will come of this, nothing will change other than some restrictions might get lifted. Iran will continue down the path of nuclear armament and not one damn thing will have been done to slow them down or stop it.

200 Mes Amis, a quick report from the talks diplomatique. Hollande, he makes the request that I am there because I have the experience (numerous surrenders, both personal and collective, and also the Convention du Fromage in Brussels, where I insert the important Edam grandfather clause) et aussi because I have the patch due to the having of the one eye (le droit) and he feels this makes me look the fierce. I am not permitted at the table, but stare fixedly at the Persians and utter a frequent low-pitched growl. This I think unnerves them, except when they make the sudden move and I flinch in a manner most befitting one of my station. I take some pride that this influences the course of the discussion, and indeed there has been much muttering of the Middle-Eastern types when I let fly with the "Grrrrrrrr," with the occasional barking noise interspersed. This, you witness, is strategy, a weaponized disdain that is part of the Gallic soul. Even the Ketchup prince from Etats-Unis is not immune, and his greyhound face is more wrinkled than even the botox would normally permit. He once halted his advocacy of the interests of Tehran for cinq seconds while he stare at me and I gaze back with the biting of the thumb that I have learned from the paisans. Alas, though, the catering, she is not of an acceptable order, and for this reason we must depart tomorrow until things are remedied at a future date. Also, because the Allemagnes told us to do this, and we felt compelled to comply with their wishes. Hopefully we have complied quickly enough, as I fear gazing from the chateau and witnessing Frau Merkel staring back with the look Teutonic. We did succeed, however, in persuading the Persians to agree to onsite inspection of their detonation of l'armes atomiques while in use, which is, of course, a triumph. It was agreed unanimously that Kerry would supervise this himself, which we assured him he could carry off in a manner not unlike that of the Genghis Khan. Vive le France, I, um, think.

226 Barack Obama has been compared to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain , who concluded the ill fated Munich Pact with Hitler in 1938. But Chamberlain acted out of a sincere belief that he was avoiding a greater evil. Chamberlain was not thinking of his place in history. He was thinking only of the Britain that he loved, a Britain that was all but disarmed, exhausted, and vulnerable. He was dealing with a nation that had been decimated by the Great War, a nation whose best and brightest five years earlier had declared in the infamous Oxford Oath that they would not fight for king or country, and a nation that was as materially unprepared for war as Germany was prepared to fight. Chamberlain dealt from a position of weakness, one that Hitler continually exploited in the negotiations, even by changing the time and place to make it more inconvenient for the British leader to attend them. In sharp contrast, Mr. Obama is acting out of personal aggrandizement. Drudge top loft

232 During the Cold War, special ops teams on both sides trained with backpack nukes to go after extremely high value targets far behind the opposition's lines. Often these targets were tough buried command and control centers in places not unlike where Iran have put their nuclear facilities. The thinking was that the operators didn't have to get the weapon all the way into the heart of the facility -- and weren't likely to be able to shoot their way in that far -- and probably weren't going to be able to lug its enormous weight for any long distance -- in order to render the facility operationally useless. They did have to get it past the first layer or so of physically hardened defenses (to keep the blast effects from being largely wasted on air). And, cheerily enough, this was regarded as a guaranteed suicide mission by both sides' spec ops communities. Things probably haven't changed much.

234 Chamberlain and his French counterpart operated from the bitter experience of WWI's carnage.  They figured that anything was better than another war.  In a sane world they would have been right, but Adolph read them for chumps and fleeced them.  And tens of millions paid the price.

Gaylord Merkin Focker the Wurst operates under no such experience.  He just sees this as yet another way to humiliate and weaken the United States.  And the Mullahs are reading him and Kerry as chumps.

262 It's going to be awfully interesting if there's a regional nuclear exchange in the Middle East, where a couple of buckets of sunshine get kicked over in big cities and a few tens of millions of people die. Americans have tended to believe for a few years now that the U.S. military have the capability to Do Sumpin' on a Presidential command about incoming ballistic missiles. To shoot the things down. And they're kinda sorta vaguely right, in that there is now a *very* limited antiballistic missile capability, grudgingly developed for bottom dollar, with partially tested prototypes having been declared as good to go, and shoved into silos. Without any attention being paid to their "wooden round" long term siloworthiness. The odds of these hastily ginned up contraptions reliably intercepting inbound nuclear tipped ICBMs are honestly not all that good. It's not that the engineering issues are insoluble, as asshats like MIT's Ted Postol have been arguing since the 1980s. It's just that those engineering issues haven't had enough engineering dollars put behind coming up with refined and tested solutions. And solutions can't be had overnight. They also require the cousin to money in the engineering process, namely, _time_. Once this realization becomes widespread among Americans who have seen what can happen to cities in the new age of nuclear terror, and that their own cities can't be protected, the resulting popular panic among the citizenry and their disorderly flight away from likely target cities will be something to see. Some of the most expensive real estate in the country may evaporate in resale value overnight. Without a shot fired at the USA.

The US set off nukes in the middle of the Pacific back in the '50s, and it knocked out power and caused fires from the power lines in Hawaii, thousands of miles away. Soviets made the same discovery in Ukraine. Nothing in our electric infrastructure can handle a power surge of anywhere near that magnitude. Not to mention the effects an electromagnetic pulse can have on pretty much every other electronic -- depending on your distance from ground zero, the computer in your car will most likely melt, leaving your car useless.

Assuming a somewhat rational head making these decisions, the last thing they'd do is actually use their nuke on us. They'd be throwing away their only trump card to get one city. Much smarter to hold on to that nuke and be secure in the knowledge that they can do pretty much whatever they want without worrying about getting Ukraine'd.

Assuming a fanatical apocalypticist is making the decisions, the only downside to that plan is that they'd want to take credit afterward. No point in striking the great satan if he doesn't know who hit him.

330 Posted by: irongrampa at March 31, 2015 09:11 PM (jeCnD) Yeah, who knows what they will do? Strategically, holding the bomb and the implicit threat is probably their best move... especially if they can scare Israel and the US in to believing Hezballah is under their nuclear umbrella. But, I mean, they have spent the last 40 years saying their goal is to kill all of the Jews and wipe Israel off the map, so... I wouldn't discount that possibility either. But I think anything happening to us in the US is very unlikely.

So that leaves Great Britain and China.  The Iranian defector said that the negotiations consist of the United States representatives trying to get everybody else to accept the Iranian conditions.  I can see how that would get kind of old and the diplomats from the other countries would want to head for the doorways at the first possible moment.



As for Britain and China, those places both have a reputation for excessive courtesy.  Maybe the activities in Switzerland are like a scaled up episode of "Keeping Up Appearances" with President Obama playing the role of Hyacinth Bucket abusing the good will and courtesy of everyone.

The worst part was the slow death of the main character's diabetic daughter. Is there a way now to store insulin without refrigerating it?

Posted by: All Hail Eris at March 31, 2015 09:24 PM (KH1sk)"



The answer is no.  If there is someone in your life who is dependent on insulin, it might be worthwhile to look into the possibility of buying a propane refrigerator or some other form of absorption refrigerator if you are making plans for dealing with an EMP type event.  Those type of refrigerators are what is normally installed in RVs and campers.  If you went to an RV dealer, they might be able to sell you a stand alone version.  They work by applying heat to one part of the sealed pipes that contain distilled water, ammonia and hydrogen.  Ordinarily the heat is applied by an electric resistance heater or propane flame.  You could provide heat by burning wood or charcoal if you had a way to do it without killing yourself with carbon monoxide or setting your place on fire.



Currently, insulin is made by fermenting with genetically modified bacteria but back in the day, it was extracted from the pancreas of pigs.  It might be possible to find a description of the process that was used to extract insulin.



And, of course, if you run out of pigs, you could use hobos.

Not that it got a whole lot of coverage but the Russians left the talks
yesterday. And Russia is closer to Iran than any other member of the
P5+1.

Considering that the Mad Mullah Nuclear Project has "Built by Russia" stamped all over it, the actors' roles in Islamokazi Nuclear Kabuki Theater are (or at least should be) crystal-clear:

 

Iran - The bad boy bully willing to do what Polite Post-Western Society can't quite screw up the "courage" to do

 

France and Germany - The engineers behind the nukes

 

Soviet Russia - The builders-of-record of the nukes

 

Red China - The target designator for the nukes (or so they think)

 

The United States ObamiNation - Late-arriving grifter wanting to take the credit for itself

 

The United Kingdom - A bitter hanger-oner has-been being politely shown the nuclear light

You're 2 1/2 years behind.  The final gift to the UAW was approximately $21 billion.  That does not cover any of the losses of the former GMAC (now Government Ally Bank), which at this point are another $20 or so billion.

399 Choomster doesn't give a jarret's ass about his "legacy." He wants a trimmed back US, Israel gone or at the mercy of the "authentic" Pallies, and spheres of influence for Third World hegemons to assert their "rightful place" in running the world. He wants the US Constitution neutered or tossed out completely in favor of "positive" Rights to Free Shit as enshrined in the EU Constitution, as managed by the all powerful, enlightened gubmint elite. He wants the residual pockets of an electorate with traditional American values "balanced" by sizable blocs of racial voting and Third Worlders/socialists in waiting, to provide a permanent electoral majority to our new, Peronist style government. The US, in Obama's vision, will continue as a sort of vast experiment in coercive Affirmative Action, income redistribution and a repository for the poorest of the poor worldwide to come and go freely, so long as they recite the pieties of leftist progressivism in the name of "tolerance." The man is a rabid ideologue, raised from birth and nurtured every step in hard core leftism, which has remained his pole star and life's work. If only it were the vanity of a "legacy" he were after, which could be satisfied by another Noble Piffle Prize here or there. No, the man only wants the world, or his version of the world.
