A friend of mine asked me what I thought about our recent deal with Iran, which he considered dangerous, naive, and irrational. It is all those things, but one must remember our current administration is dangerous, naive, and irrational.
Remember in school we all learned in mathematics a negative number x negative number = positive number?
For example -2 x -2 = 4.
I suspect that in the bitter aftertaste of two failed wars (Iraq and Afghanistan), we are merely positioning Iran to confront ISIS for us as a regional proxy.
Our irrational government has struck an irrational deal to give an irrational regime the means to eventually confront another irrational regime.
In other words: typical American foreign policy: dangerous, naive and irrational.
