Thank you, Al Jazzera

I recall a saying from my old days in Fidonet: "Open mouth, insert foot, echo internationally."  Witness the recent foulup of a certain portion of the Senate..

Leave it to Al Jazzera to point out the most fundamental idiocy about all this:

The key element missing from the GOP Senators’ letter, however, is that the deal is not being negotiated between Iran and the United States; it is being negotiated between Iran and the P5+1 group, in which the U.S. is joined by Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China. Even if the U.S. is the key player in that group, the deal being pursued reflects an international consensus — the same consensus that has made sanctions against Iran so effective.

You can find the rest of the article with a lot of interesting info about what the negotiations are about and what they are NOT here.

Senators, next time you feel like committing a social solecism in public, fart. It smells better and does less long term damage.
