What Did Democrats Win in the Cardin Compromise on the Corker Bill?

Robert Naiman

I knew a lawyer who was a Philosophy major as an undergrad. At a party many years ago - maybe we had consumed a few sips of beer - I asked him, what does studying Philosophy have to do with being a lawyer?

Pure political theater with a badly written script.

Anyone who actually believes that this agreement is going to reduce the odds of an attack on Iran is ignoring the reality of Israel and Saudi Arabia. Both cultures are terrified of Iran but as an economic rival rather than a military threat. The Sunni-Shia schism is just a cover used by the corporate media to conceal the truth about the strife in the region.

You are SO right!

The other secret no one wants to talk about is the actual alliance between Israel and the Saudis/Sunnis and the simple fact that most of the funding for Al Qaeda and ISIL comes from the Saudis and the Gulf States.

All the people in the US who have been persecuted for donating to "front groups" suffer while the real funders are our "pals".
