At Least Syria Is Happy

Well, isn't that just precious.

"Syria congratulates the Iranian brotherly people and their wise leadership on this historic achievement which reiterates Iran's role in the stability and security of the region," the source concluded.

In favor of this deal: Obama, Syria, Iran, Russia, China, the EU.
Opposed: Israel.

The details are terrifying. Iran gets to continue its activities at Arak, Fordow and Natanz facilities, and gets a reprieve from sanctions in exchange for promising not to continue its nuclear weapons program.

Oh, and we're making concessions of international law, as well:

Zarif said that the agreement “covers several important domains, the most important of which is the recognition of the right to enrichment.”

The U.S. and other major powers have never conceded an international norm of enrichment. Obama's just giving this stuff away.

*Programming Note* We want your comments, questions, advice, jokes, japes, and jackfoolery for this weeks' podcast. This is a holiday-week opportunity only, so if you're really dying to get something out of the cobs, this is your moment. Send your question/comment/request for advice/whatever to andy+asktheblog AT aoshq DOT com, and, provided it's not utter lunacy, there's a good chance we'll read it and either answer it or (more likely) mock it on the podcast. You know you want to.
