12. I do not like what he said to Chuck Schumer.

The Iran deal that Obama/Kerry negotiated (notice that it wasn't Obama/Clinton - and it's just WAY too bad that Obama hadn't chosen Kerry from the start, because the mess wouldn't have become so much more complicated) is essential to ending the "War on Terror" and entering a peaceful phase.

The Iran deal wasn't just negotiated between Obama/Kerry and Iran, but between the P5+1 and Iran, which is the UN security council China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States; plus Germany.

So now it's "a matter of conscience" for some senator, some wannabe Dem Senate leader no less, whether they should support it?

This isn't just a "matter of conscience" as it would be for an issue that's solely about a person's immediate action, as in "should I walk across the street to hand that homeless person a fiver?" This is an issue of walking a first step toward putting a stop to the havoc that the US has brought to the ME, over decades and the deaths of millions and the destruction of whole countries. It's a step to ending the entirely artificial "civil war" between Sunni and Shia, as egged on and funded by the USA. A first step.

This is a disappointment. A big, big, disappointment.
