Congress should make clear that it will vote against the treaty - unless its fundamental flaws are corrected. This correction would require bipartisan cooperation between the White House and Democrats and Republicans in both houses.

The Iran deal will stand, at least until the next presidential election. Despite disapproval by a non-partisan majority of both houses of Congress, not to mention the American people, because of the incredibly low threshold to sustain a veto, not to mention White House arm-twisting and purely partisan support, the deal will stand.

The 'Other' Options With Iran's Nuclear Program

Opponents to the Iran deal often say that they could have gotten a better deal. These critics are largely found in the U.S. and in Israel. Critics are right for scrutinizing any deal. They would not be doing their job if they were giving it an automatic pass. However, being critical because a better alternative is desired is not realistic.

Huckabee, by using the imagery he did and by casting the president as Hitler, crossed a line others have not crossed. For that he richly deserves the special opprobrium he is receiving.

While entering into this nuclear deal with Iran is far from perfect, it nevertheless offers a potential for optimism. First of all, it would delay Iran's nuclear program for at least 10 to 15 years, and this alone is a significant benefit.

President Obama has opened the door to dialogue with two nations -- Cuba and Iran -- that Americans have long considered to be enemies. He did this despite the resistance of powerful counter-forces and for that he should be applauded.

Why Iran's Nuclear Deal Is A Victory Against Hardliners And Terrorists

John A. Tures | Posted 07.16.2015 | Politics
John A. Tures

Let's say that the U.S. Congress rejects the deals. If so, we could see a hardliner comeback in Iran, a victory for the sponsors of terrorism, an increased likelihood of Israel bombing Iran, with a retaliation that drags America into a conflict that makes Iraq look like a skirmish.
