Why Tom Cotton really wants to kill the Iran deal

Tom Cotton is one of the Republican Senators from Arkansas. He has announced that Congress will "kill this deal" with Iran. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/tom-cotton-iran-nuclear-deal-dangerous

Cotton beat Mark Pryor in his Senate race in 2014. He received $960,250 from the "Emergency Committee for Israel." http://www.opensecrets.org/pacs/indexpend.php?cmte=C90013244&cycle=2014 That's over 70% of the money the Emergency Committee doled out during the 2014 campaign.

As an aside, one really wonders what "the Emergency" is? Israel has stockpiled at least 200 nuclear warheads, probably more, receives more US aid than ever, has a robust economy, cannot be successfully attacked by any (or all) of its neighbors and now suffers few serious terror incidents while still incrementally colonizing Palestine. Some "emergency."

The "Emergency Committee" is run by one of the more notorious supporters of Israel - Neo-con William Kristol, the arrogant and slightly effete founder of the Rightist Weekly Standard and denizen of the MSM talk show circuit. Just to show you that talent really does rise, this guy was once Chief of Staff for that intellectual heavyweight, Dan Quayle.

Kristol has made a nice living off Israeli cheerleading and his other neoconservative ventures. He and his wife are worth nearly one-quarter of a billion dollars ($250,000,000,000). http://iflizwerequeen.com/tag/bill-kristol He can afford to drop a little bank on a rising Republican Star to advance his vision of neocon glory and probably increase that net worth.

Time for Tom Cotton to pay back his Godfather.

2. I should have added . . .

. . . that he avoided serving in Vietnam, but is anxious to send the children of the less well-heeled to die in the sand.
