For a long time, America gave a clear policy to the world. Under no conditions will we negotiate with terrorists. Ever.
The reason for that is simple.
If we negotiate with terrorists, that incentives other terrorists to kidnap or extort us. It’s the old lesson in that Kipling poem, ‘Danegeld’, which includes these lines.
It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say:–
“Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the
time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”
And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane. — PoemHunter
But taking a hard stand is easier said than done. And some people have a better temperament for it than others. Iran has sized up Biden, and they see him as weak and desperate to make a deal.
On any terms.
Anyone who knows the first thing about negotiating that eagerness to make a deal on ANY terms is the ultimate sign of weakness. Biden promised to return to the old (useless) nuclear deal with Iran, and Iran is happy to milk that weakness for all it is worth.
Iran said Tuesday it was seeking the release of all Iranian prisoners held in the U.S. amid talks in Vienna meant to bring Tehran and Washington back into the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.
…As nuclear talks are about to get underway Tuesday in Vienna following a brief break, Tehran has been insisting that the U.S. lift all sanctions imposed under then-President Donald Trump after he pulled America out of the nuclear deal, including those not related to its nuclear program. –VOA
Iran has a voice in this conversation, and they seem pretty confident of their position.
“The offers they provide are usually arrogant and humiliating (and) are not worth looking at,” the 81-year-old Khamenei said in an address marking the first day of the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan in Iran.
…Speaking to his Cabinet, an impassioned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the first-generation IR-1 centrifuges that were damaged in Sunday’s attack would be replaced by advanced IR-6 centrifuges that enrich uranium much faster.
“You wanted to make our hands empty during the talks but our hands are full,” Rouhani said.
Rouhani added: “60% enrichment is an answer to your evilness. … We cut off both of your hands, one with IR-6 centrifuges and another one with 60%.” —NBCPhiladelphia, April 14
Here are a couple of relevant questions we might want to ask the current occupant of the White House…
Does the following quote sound anything like an enemy who is approaching America cap-in-hand, or even as equals? Or does it sound more like someone who has been told by Kerry that they should wait out the Trump presidency until Democrats can sweep back into power, and get back to selling out the country? (Oh, and don’t for a minute assume we’ve all forgotten about those pallets of cash, either.)
A prisoner swap accompanied the 2015 nuclear deal which included clemency for seven Iranians held in the United States, as well as the removal of 10 Iranians from Interpol watch lists. Morton Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America states “it would be dangerous and absurd for the US to release Iranian prisoners, thus allowing them to return to their nefarious anti-American, pro-terror activities.”
Earlier this month, Iran announced that it would enrich uranium at 60% purity, three times higher than before. The U.N. watchdog agency confirmed Iran’s announcement. In a statement, the International Atomic Energy Agency said they had “verified that Iran had begun the production of UF6 enriched up to 60%” at their above-ground Natanz Pilot Fuel Enrichment Plant. Nonetheless, Iran continues to refuse direct talks and make demands such as the release of Iranian Nationals. —LeoTerrell
After all, do you remember what Iran was doing the last time this clown was in the White House?

News flash Joe. Iran doesn’t take you seriously.
Empty bluster about push-up contests or taking someone behind the gym might impress your media flunkies, but that won’t cut it on the world stage.
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
