People who say things like "the immense damage that has been done domestically and internationally over the last few decades by the political elites" really ought to be a bit more precise. They should say when exactly in the past they think things were okay so that we can decide whether or not we agree with them. Presumably Spencer thinks things were bad under Obama and Bush junior, and Clinton too. Were they okay under Bush senior? Or do we have to go back to Reagan (whose attitude to Russia was very different from many contemporary Republicans)? Or were the good old days even further back? We should be told.

And from a conservative journal, The Weekly Journal:

"Donald Trump is an embarrassment. It would be better for the country if he were president for at most one term. It would be desirable that his manner of governing go down in history as an aberration; that his form of conservatism be judged a detour from the broad path of a mostly praiseworthy movement; and that his type of Republicanism be seen as a cul-de-sac from which the GOP finds an honorable exit."

Hmmm! Not sure about Ann Coulter:

Certainly there's some buyers remorse.

In any case the ship is not really sinking. Sure he's losing popularity at an unprecedented rate but I doubt the Republic majorities in the Senate and House will go out of their way to impeach him. So he'll run to term. I don't know if he can win a second one. It seems to me ridiculous to suppose it, but then I never imagined he would beat Clinton last year. It's well to remind ourselves that Americans think very differently to the UK media bubble.

"In return, Iran has pledged to restrict its nuclear activities, reducing its uranium enrichment, plutonium production plans, and allowing inspectors access to facilities."

I think this is what they call "fake news."

Muslims,especailly Shiahs are encouraged by Holy Script to become experts in the fine art of deception and deceit. How one deals across a table with men with whom language and formal agreement are impossible is part of the art of diplomacy but it must be a difficult one. The one certainty is that Iranian pledges are mendacious and to act on that assumption is imperative.
