This week we have been dealing with what happens when an airline ignores signs of mental illness in one of their pilots.  The man decided to deliberately crash an aircraft into the Alps, a crime that took the lives of 149 innocent people. 

But what happens when the US president lurches forward with a deal to facilitate the oppressive Iranian regime's development of a nuclear weapons program along with their expansionist ambitions - all of which will endanger the lives of millions?

USA In Decline

Why is president Obama pursuing with such determination this deal that endangers all of humanity?  Why such devoted loyalty to Iran?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that an emerging nuclear deal with Iran was “even worse” than Israel had feared, warning of a new Iranian “axis” that was “dangerous for all of humanity and which much be stopped.”

White House's willful blindness to these alarming precedents:

What is the White House leading us to?
  Nothing less than an apocalyptic scenario in the Middle East and beyond
The American public and the West in general should be deeply troubled by the behaviour of the White House, going to such extremes to favor the nuclear weapons development of a country that is sponsor of terror and aggressively expanding its dominance over the Middle East.
With a White House mired in foreign policy failures, this administration is clinging to this deal as one - just one - 'accomplishment' in the several years of tenure by this Democrat president. 
The problem is that making such a deal is MUCH WORSE than no deal at all. 

The president's acts will be irreversible, as Iran expands its power over the region, as a nuclear arms race accelerates in the Middle East, and as former US allies feel betrayed and pursue their own avenues to stem nuclear-armed Iran's march over the Middle East.
The question is WHY exactly is the White House so eager and even desperate to favor the oppressive and supremacist Iranian regime - while throwing Israel and other Middle East allies under the bus.
The P5 + 1 now meeting in Geneva is made up of United States, United Kingdom, Russia, China, France, and Germany.
Iran:  We control four Arab Capitals
Now add Washington DC to that.
After the recent capture of Sanaa, the capital of Yemen, by Shiite rebels, back in November 2014, an Iranian official boasted that the Islamic Republic now controls four Arab capitals. The other three capitals are Damascus, Syria; Baghdad, Iraq; and Beirut, Lebanon.
White House threatening US allies and behaving like a bully  to favor Iran's nuclear dreams

Nearing its deadline for a deal, president Obama has been bullying his allies to submit to a deal that all but puts a nuclear weapon right in the hands of the Ayatollahs.  The Free Beacon reports:

LAUSANNE, Switzerland - March 27 - Efforts by the Obama administration to stem criticism of its diplomacy with Iran have included threats to nations involved in the talks, including U.S. allies, according to Western sources familiar with White House efforts to quell fears it will permit Iran to retain aspects of its nuclear weapons program.   
A series of conversations between top American and French officials, including between President Obama and French President Francois Hollande, have seen Americans engage in behavior described as bullying by sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. The disagreement over France’s cautious position in regard to Iran threatens to erode U.S. relations with Paris, sources said.  
U.S. negotiators have reportedly softened their stance in recent days on a range of issues relating to Iran’s continued production of nuclear materials. One of Iran’s nuclear sites in Fordow could continue to operate, according to the Associated Press.

Iranian Defector: 'U.S. Negotiating Team Mainly There to Speak on Iran’s Behalf'
An Iranian journalist writing about the nuclear negotiations between the United States and Iran has defected. In an interview Amir Hossein Motaghi, has some harsh words for his native Iran. He also has a damning indictment of America's role in the nuclear negotiations. 
The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal," Motaghi told a TV station after just defecting from the Iranian delegation while abroad for the nuclear talks.

White House endangering American interests
Tension between Washington and Paris comes amid frustration by other U.S. allies, such as Saudi Arabia and Israel. The White House responded to this criticism by engaging in public campaigns analysts worry will endanger American interests. 
Western policy analysts who spoke to the Free Beacon, including some with close ties to the French political establishment, were dismayed over what they saw as the White House’s willingness to sacrifice its relationship with Paris as talks with Iran reach their final stages.  A recent phone call between Obama and Hollande was reported as tense as the leaders disagreed over the White House’s accommodation of Iranian red lines.

Apparently the White House bullying tactics worked because the US is close to reach a deal with Iran - one that Israeli officials characterized as "worse than we thought".
Iran already reneging on previous agreement
Sensing Obama's desperation to conclude a deal, now Iran has reneged on a previous agreement to send its uranium outside the country. 
The Jewish Press reports: 
Despite an already agreed upon commitment, Iran will not send out of the country the enriched uranium it has spent years and billions of dollars to create.  Iran had previously agreed to send its stockpile elsewhere – Russia was the agreed-upon destination – thereby preventing Iran from using the material it had already produced to create nuclear weapons.   

Allies no longer trust the White House, particularly after it leaked secrets about Israel's nuclear weapons  -  They are afraid the White House will leak information to the Iranians.

The damage of Barack Obama’s disastrous foreign policy builds with each new day.  The Washington Free Beacon reported:
NBC’s Richard Engel reported Friday that U.S. officials were stunned they were not given any notice before Saudi Arabia launched attacks against Houthi rebels. According to Engel, military leaders were finding out about the developments on the Yemen border in real time. 
Engel said officials from both the military and members of Congress believe they were not given advanced warning because the Arab nations do not trust the Obama administration after they befriended Iran. 
“Saudi Arabia and other countries simply don’t trust the United States any more, don’t trust this administration, think the administration is working to befriend Iran to try to make a deal in Switzerland, and therefore didn’t feel the intelligence frankly would be secure. And I think that’s a situation that is quite troubling for U.S. foreign policy,” Engel said.
And, why would any US ally trust the Obama regime?

The biggest con job in history  - 
The talks may be camouflage for Iranian nukes in North Korea

Iran’s dragging on the negotiations with the P5+1 on an agreement covering its nuclear program may be one of the biggest con jobs in modern history, camouflaging secret nuclear development in  North Korea, which has been providing technology and advice to Tehran.

North Korea was caught red-handed helping the construction of a nuclear facility in Syria, heavily backed by Iran, when Israel bombed the site in 2007.

The Daily Beast reported Monday that Iran since 2012 has deployed personnel at a North Korean military base near China, which along with Russia has been the biggest investor in Iran’s program to reach nuclear capability.

A deal would not prevent Iran from buying enriched uranium from North Korea, and the Islamic Republic will have plenty of cash to do so because a deal will be accompanied by the removal of sanctions.

If a deal is signed by midnight March 31, Iran can celebrate April Fool’s Day by opening up its sites for inspection, after all traces of nuclear weapons research are removed, and carry on  freely in North Korea to assemble a nuclear weapon.

The obvious other probable partner in evil, namely China, has invested millions in Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. China previously has violated U.N. Security Council resolutions by sending to Iran materials that could be used for building atomic bombs.

 James Woolsey
Former CIA chief James Woolsey notes Iran's expansionism is 'imperialist,' adds that Obama is sticking to deal to leave a legacy.

Iran is using the same tactics as Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany to expand their empire, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Director James Woolsey stated Monday - by reviving imperialism through ideology. They are doing it on a highly ideological basis.

As such, he added, "given Iran's aggressiveness and the fanaticism of its leaders, I don't think we can do a reasonable deal with them.They'll cheat."

Despite the evidence, Woolsey theorized that US President Barack Obama will continue the negotiations process - if anything, for personal reasons.

Former IAEA senior inspector details why the Iran deal is nearly worthless

 Detection time depends on Iran's actions. If Tehran does not try to conceal what it is doing, the IAEA would detect a violation fairly quickly -- in the worst case perhaps two weeks.

The agency would then confirm the finding with Iranian authorities, and the IAEA Board of Governors would need another one or two weeks to take any formal action such as referring the issue to the UN Security Council. This would leave a reasonable amount of time for the international community to act.

Yet if Iran tries to conceal what it is doing, much longer detection times are likely. As indicated in past IAEA reports, environmental samples play a pivotal role in confirming violations.

Due to the large number of samples involved and the meticulous analytical process, the results would not be available for at least two months. And if samples show higher enrichment, additional samples have to be taken and analyzed.

Although the second set of samples would certainly be fast-tracked, it is unrealistic to expect that process and subsequent clarifications by Iran to take less than another month. This would leave the international community with only three or four months to act, an extremely short time.

There are also plausible scenarios of misunderstandings or even differing interpretations of what constitutes a breach of the agreement. In such situations, Iran could drag the process out for many months.

The most difficult task is to detect a "sneak-out" violation in which Iran uses clandestine nuclear facilities. This scenario has several variants, including the possibility of an entirely separate, unreported enrichment cycle anywhere along the chain from uranium mining to enrichment.

This scenario cannot be excluded because the IAEA has still not been permitted to verify the completeness of Tehran's declarations on nuclear materials and facilities.

Iran building a new Persian Empire - By Ralph Peters
What to do after a nuclear cataclysm in the Middle East?
What about what's left of Israel?
It’s because the biggest lie you’re hearing today is “never again.”  The world doesn’t care, and without the United States and Israel together, working together to common strategic goals, common civilizational goals, there is going to be a catastrophe, and it is nothing short of appalling.

Consequences of an irreversible bad deal with Iran  -  Could this be an added incentive?

Apocalyptic Betrayals
By Noah Beck

The US could simply assert an ultimatum, but Obama, instead, is leading us to WWIII.

President Obama’s far-reaching efforts to facilitate Iran’s march to nukes amount to nothing less than apocalyptic betrayals of U.S. voters and allies that will make the world exponentially more dangerous.
Obama has ignored the countless reasons to doubt that the ayatollahs will make and keep a nuclear accord that prevents them from acquiring nuclear weapons. Here are just a few of those reasons:

1) Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani boasted about his own role in exploiting diplomatic talks to advance Iran’s nuclear program,

3) Iran recently tried – in a single transaction – to buy know-how for nukes and impunity for one of its biggest terrorist attacks.

It could also hasten the era of nuclear terrorism. There are already reports that ISIS has resorted to attacks with chemical weapons (hardly surprising after Obama’s “red lines” on chemical weapons use turned white).
Iran could provide nuclear material – in addition to a nuclear umbrella – to its proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah. For these and other grave concerns, Netanyahu risked his political career on a speech that explained why the deal is so bad.
Yet rather than address legitimate reservations about the emerging Iranian nuclear deal, Obama prefers to hold Bibi to his Israeli election slogans about a Palestinian state as if Obama hadn’t himself broken countless campaign promises, including his own oft-repeated commitment (to voters and allies alike) that he would prevent Iran from going nuclear. Breaching his promise to everyone, Obama has embraced a process that makes Iran a threshold nuclear state.

Instead of questioning the intentions of the same theocratic regime that held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days, the Obama administration has whitewashed Iran’s terrorist activities/record, and accepted Rouhani as a moderate even though human rights in Iran have worsened under his rule.

Despite Obama’s attempts to influence the outcome of Israel’s free elections, no Israeli government, regardless of the political parties that comprise it, can live with the existential threat posed by a nuclear Iran.

And world powers are closer than ever to forcing an Israeli military response to that danger because they have buckled rather than created sufficient diplomatic and economic pressure to persuade Iran to dismantle its nuclear program.
Iran has made steady progress on its nuclear program despite decades of sanctions, UN Security Council resolutions, IAEA inspections, and negotiations.

The most successful strategy for stopping Iran's nuclear march was the very real threat of force in 2003. After the U.S. military quickly trounced Iraq, Iran was deterred from continuing its nuclear activities, until it concluded that the U.S. military threat had dissipated.
Under Obama, the weakest U.S. president since Jimmy Carter, there is no credible military threat, as his actions in Syria, Ukraine, and elsewhere have shown.

That reality will force Israel to take military action against Iran's nukes – either in the absence of a nuclear deal or despite the bad one under consideration (which paves Iran's path to the bomb with legitimacy while isolating Israel).

Some think that Israel will refrain from attacking because a military strike would, at best, set back Iranian nukes by a few years. But that is a specious argument for two reasons:

1) Like "mowing the grass" with Hamas’ military buildups in Gaza, Israel may simply have to take military action every few years,

2) the Iranians may eventually stop trying to develop nukes, after realizing that it's a huge waste of resources to build nuclear facilities that Israel will promptly destroy.
Despite all of the risks of attacking Iran's nuclear program, doing nothing will be riskier to Israel's survival because the world's most dangerous regime then acquires the world's most dangerous weapons.
The Jewish nation knows all too well the dangers of ignoring genocidal threats, and Iran, the world's chief sponsor of terrorism, has repeatedly threatened to destroy Israel. By making Iran a nuclear threshold state, the proposed deal leaves the ayatollahs with the ability to carry out that threat and therefore compels an Israeli attack.
However, because Israel's capabilities are far more limited than those of the U.S. military, Israel won't be able to prevent Iranian retribution when destroying Iran's nukes.
What follows is a nuclear World War III.

Iran will retaliate with an overwhelming barrage of potent, long-range ballistic missiles on Israel's population centers, and will likely also target the Israeli nuclear reactor in Dimona (which action could itself produce massive casualties). Hezbollah, which has about 100,000 long-range missiles supplied by Iran, will add to the unstoppable downpour of missiles.
For all of its impressive successes, Israeli missile defense systems are simply ill-equipped to handle such a huge number of incoming missiles, and so there will be thousands of casualties.
The world, as usual, will do nothing but excoriate Israel and call for restraint, leaving Israel with countless casualties. Adjusted for population differences, ten thousand dead in tiny Israel is like about 400,000 killed in the USA. At that point (if not much sooner), Israel will feel that it's very survival requires nuking Tehran and a few other major cities, which would destroy the regime along with maybe a million people.
The Sunni countries threated by Shiite Iran's hegemonic aggression in the region may have already entered the fray at that point, or would do so soon after, and the centuries-old Sunni-Shia conflict would explode throughout the region even more than it already has.

It's not clear how the war eventually ends, but there will be even more chaos as failed states and radical extremism spread across the Middle East. The price of oil will skyrocket to unseen levels, and none of this will be good for U.S. interests.
Absurdly enough, the U.S. could probably prevent such a doomsday scenario by simply asserting an ultimatum backed by very credible military force.

If Iran does not, within a week after the expiration of the current talks, allow inspectors unfettered access to all of its nuclear facilities and then cooperate in their destruction (with compensation and a set of economic and political rewards for that cooperation), then the U.S. military will, with overwhelming military force, destroy the entire Iranian military infrastructure (including its nuclear program) and work towards the downfall of the regime.
If the U.S. can make such a threat credibly, then Iran will acquiesce, no actual force will be needed, and the decades-long Iranian nuclear threat will finally end.

But, unlike apocalyptic betrayals, such a bold show of force is unthinkable for Obama, and so we could be looking at a nuclear World War III in the not-too-distant future.
