    Bibi is taking a stick to Iran.

    I sailed the Persian Gulf and its approaches back in the day when “we would never put a carrier through the straits”.  Too dangerous.  I took part in Operation Praying Mantis, when we sank half of Iran’s navy.

    God Bless Bibi.

    “We must all stand together to stop Iran’s march of destruction and terror.”

    And both sides of the chamber rose to applaud.  Nice.

    I wasn’t aware that this was still live.

    This is exhilarating to listen to and watch.

    Bibi proposes not lifting any sanctions until Iran shapes the H up.  Democrats stood rapidly.  They must be hoping that’s all there is to it.

    So were those Democrats and Republicans in the hall? Or just Republicans?

    Honestly, I expected the speech to be more wonky, getting into more details of why the deal is a bad one. It’s not clear that Bibi, as “an expert”, has told Congress anything it didn’t already know or couldn’t have gotten from stateside experts.

    That’s not too bad.

    Maybe we have more in common with the Democrats on this than I thought. Please, God.

    Most everyone showed up. I believe there were around 20 Democrats who had said they wouldn’t come, but there are 535 members of Congress, so that’s not very significant. Of note, Joe Biden did not come, so Orrin Hatch sat next to Boehner as president pro-tempore.

    Yes, but hearing a world leader say, “This is the way it is,” carries a lot of weight. Gets people out of the “maybes.” Moves people to action. Someone is willing to stand up and claim a position. Then others can act on it.

    I madder at you for all those Harvard eggheads.

    Well, some of them.  Harvard has produced its share of sound minds with good hearts and sound politics.

    Just don’t mention Lizzy Warren to me, or it’ll be Niagra Falls all over again.

    I noticed Biden wasn’t there. That was Orrin Hatch? I was wondering who it was.

    I’m a reader, not a television watcher. So I can’t put faces with names. :)

    I can’t thank you enough, Max. That was perfect. I didn’t think I’d be able to see and hear it.

    Thank you, again.

    Facts don’t matter.  It’s not like he would convince anybody based on facts.  This was a power play, for deadly real, and he just laid out the stakes to Obama.  He also had a public airing of the existing situation that Americans would not get otherwise.

    This is pressure, not force.  It doesn’t smash a particular thing.  It exerts a relentless push on everything.  This will work its way through the news, media, and culture.

    Obama is unlikely to change his mind.  So this, IMHO, is about prepping the mindspace of the American people for the reaction to a deal with Iran.
