The Issue: President Biden permitting Russia to negotiate with Iran on the United States’ behalf.
As Michael Goodwin observes, it’s dangerous sufficient that the United States is looking for to resuscitate the deeply flawed 2015 Iran nuclear deal, however that it’s doing so with the help of Russia as a supposedly trusted middleman is stupefyingly unthinkable (“Joe lets Vlad run Iran nuke talks?!” March 13).
Russia’s warfare crimes in Ukraine — invading and laying to waste a sovereign nation, concentrating on and murdering harmless civilians — make it an unthinkably unfit associate for any American initiative, political or industrial.
The Biden administration’s reliance on Russia as a supposedly sincere dealer of a nuclear cope with Iran, the most harmful state sponsor of terrorism in the world, is really unimaginable, and smacks of much more desperation and hypocrisy than the preliminary 2015 deal by former President Barack Obama.

This is absolute insanity. Ukraine was threatened by Russia for months, and Biden refused to do something besides to say that sanctions might be imposed as soon as an invasion befell.
Poland agreed to provide MiGs to Ukraine however Biden refused the airplane switch, claiming it might anger the Russians, whereas at the identical time Putin’s troops bomb hospitals, destroy Ukrainian cities and kill harmless civilians.
And but we permit Russia to be our intermediary in the renewed Iran nuclear-arms negotiations. Are Biden and his foreign-policy crew loopy?
America’s weak spot and lack of management at the moment are entrance and heart on the world stage, and the harm being achieved will additional embolden Putin in addition to China and Iran.
After studying Goodwin’s eye-opening piece on Joe letting Vlad run Iranian nuke talks, I misplaced my breath.
Thank you to Goodwin for writing the article, in any other case we’d have by no means recognized the fact, as none of that is talked about by our different native media.
I’m proud to say I didn’t vote for Biden. What may be stated for many who did?
As former president Obama reportedly said “Do not understate Joe’s ability to f - - k things up.” How true, and but Biden was voted in.
Iran attacked our embassy consulate in Iraq, and Biden continues negotiation of an Iran nuclear settlement, which is being negotiated by way of intermediaries in China and Russia. It’s potential Congress received’t have alternative to ratify any ensuing deal as a result of Biden will signal by govt order.
Is that constant together with his sworn oath to uphold the Constitution? A commander-in-chief who “aids” the enemy by negotiating with a rustic that attacked us deserves to be eliminated.

So the Russians are concerned in our negotiations with Iran on a nuclear deal.
Who got here up with this concept? The empty go well with in the White House merely has no clue what’s going on on this nation and must be eliminated. The drawback is the one who’s subsequent in line is worse. We are in deep trouble.
Kudos for Goodwin’s column on Biden’s employment of Putin as an agent in “dealing” with the Iranian theo-fascists for his or her oil.
Some would maintain that the good friend of my enemy is my enemy, so this alternative is quite curious.
We additionally scratch our heads making an attempt to fathom the financial advantages of transporting inferior crude midway throughout the world when there are already huge reserves of crude beneath our personal North American soil.
After the whole lot that has plagued the world this previous month, why would our authorities go gentle on a cope with Iran relating to its nuclear ambitions?
Why does it seem to be Democrats make sweetheart offers with our adversaries, whereas shunning our buddies? I worry historical past is not going to view our actions in a positive gentle.
