Op-ed: 
A Diplomatic Trial Run 
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on CPR Worldwide Media  www.cprworldwidemedia.net

"Nothing is more futile than trying to live in the past...We're taking a historic and long overdue step in the right direction."
- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on normalizing relations with Cuba

In 1959 Fidel Castro established the communist state of Cuba...a mere 90 miles off the coast of South Florida...after overthrowing dictator Fulgencio Batista. And now in 2015, at the stroke of midnight this past Monday, the diplomatic missions of each country became full embassies as Barack HUSSEIN Obama basically gave a 'get out of jail' free card to the repressive Cuban government for all past actions. Later, with the raising of the blue, red, and white-starred Cuban flag inside the lobby of the State Department, full diplomatic relations with a country still rife with stifling oppression and human rights violations was restored.

On April 7, 1980, the U.S. cut off all diplomatic relations with Iran after the 1979 Iranian revolution and the taking of 52 American hostages. On July 14, 2015, foreign ministers from Iran and the P5+1 announced they had reached a final nuclear agreement after 20 months of negotiations... negotiations orchestrated by Barack HUSSEIN Obama who considers this deal the crowning diplomatic achievement of his presidency...when in actuality this deal is more grounds for impeachment for his violating Article II Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. On Monday, July 20, 2015, the U.N. Security Council...on Obama's urging...unanimously endorsed said deal and authorized measures that will end U.N. sanctions on Iran...doing so before our Congress had a chance to review and vote on said deal.

Major historic events...yet to many seemingly unconnected events...yet events whose ramifications go deeper...much deeper...than it appears on the surface for these events have an American president willingly and knowingly selling his country out to very bad people both in Cuba and in Iran. And know that the normalizing of relations with Cuba was but the 'trial run' towards Obama's ultimate goal of extending full diplomatic relations to Iran so that he, first, will NOT be perceived by history as striking a very dangerous deal with one of America's enemies, and second, to assure that very enemy that they have a trusted 'friend' in one of their islamic brethren while America and 'We the People' be damned.

As for Cuba...the island nation is still stuck in the 1950s and its people are still hurting both on the economic front and on the personal freedoms front. Though normalization of sorts has now taken place...after all at midnight on Monday the 'Cuban Interests Section' in Washington DC switched its all-important (sarcastically said) Twitter account to say 'embassy'...there is NO real benefit to either the Cuban people nor to their families living here in the U.S.

And with serious ideological rifts remaining between both countries...including mutual claims for economic reparations; the Castro brothers demand that an end be put to the 53-year-old trade embargo...which Obama has indicated he might do by using his presidential authority...as in his 'pen and his phone'...despite the vocal objection of some in Congress...along with another of the Castro brothers demand to return our Guantanamo Bay military base (GITMO) to Cuba; and with U.S. calls for Cuba to improve its human rights record and move towards democracy...Obama threw them a self-serving 'political expediency' bone by somewhat loosening restrictions on travel and by somewhat increasing monetary remittances to the island nation.

Saying that in his opinion the decades-long still in effect policies regarding Cuba have failed, and that NOTHING has changed for the Cuban people under those policies...while ignoring the fact that the Cuban people under the Castro government are still being oppressed...Barack HUSSEIN Obama unilaterally...what else...decided that we as a nation could NO longer keep the same said policies in place and expect any sort of change. And supporting Obama’s actions are the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Foreign Trade Council, and certain key agricultural lobby groups whose members say they want to increase their exports to Cuba, but who really just want to line their own pockets on the misery of the Cuban people.

And the truth is that the change Obama himself is aiming for is his own very special narcissistic version of change...what else...that serves NOT the Cuban people as the Castro brothers will still call all the shots and dole out said monies at their whim while still allowing monies garnered to be pilfered by the Cuban government and the military...yet this will still serve to lay the groundwork for Iran normalization because Obama gets to say that since 'he' removed Cuba from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism...but really who has Cuba terrorized besides its own people...and that since 'he' normalized relations with the island nation...they have become an integral part of the world community and that if 'he'' normalizes relations with Iran they will too.

“I think we should also not minimize how the Cuba rapprochement might play in the inner counsels in Tehran.” 
 - Kenneth Katzman, Senior Analyst of Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Persian Gulf Affairs at the Congressional Research Service.

So after Monday's slap in the face to America by the U.N. know that normalization of relations with Iran is sure to come for it was Obama himself who outwardly pushed for the rushed lifting of the U.N. sanctions on Iran...after all why NOT acquiesce even more to the brethren...even more than the hush-hush detail (Obama?) slipped into the deal that few know about. According to the deal reached in Vienna, the U.S. and the P5+1 can help Iran “deflect” and even “respond” to sabotage and threats to its nuclear sites...meaning in simple terms, 'screw Israel.'

And with this and other important details of this very bad deal carefully hidden in the many annexes...including the fact that Iran does NOT have to disclose any sites except those which are currently known...Annex III of this Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)*...the actual name of the Iranian nuclear deal...has page 142 titled 'Civil Nuclear Cooperation,' of which Section D-10 clearly states that the P5+1 “and possibly other states are prepared to cooperate with Iran on the implementation of nuclear security guidelines and best practices” including allowing for a possible staging of a counter-attack to help Iran protect its nuclear sites...against Israel. This alone should have Congress voting a resounding NO to the deal as this will have the U.S. and our allies being allies with Iran against our true ally Israel if Israel does launch a much needed pre-emptive strike. But will they have the fortitude to go against Obama and do the right thing...their past record scarily leads one to say they will NOT.

But since few, like I said, know about this cleverly hidden detail, Obama will indeed try...and probably will succeed...in 'pulling a Cuba' in regards to Iran as he has done NOTHING but coddle and appease those who are enemies of this country. And don't think for a minute that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn't know this for he knows that this now normalization with Cuba will indeed lead, in a very short period of time, to normalization with Iran. And Netanyahu also knows that unless he can rally the strong pro-Israel lobbyists in Congress from both parties to convince the others in Congress to stand strong against Obama on this very bad that the Iranian flag will also soon be hanging at the State Department.
