Iran enriching uranium againso much winning.

I'd rather not get into squabbling over the terms of the JPCOA, which makes everyone a sudden expert in nuclear weapons production and proliferation.

Instead, I would like those of you who supported scrapping the deal - a potentially legitimate position - to offer clarification on two questions:

1. Do you view the trade embargo on Cuba to be effective policy? I only ask because it's based on singular American economic pressure, much as the current policy on Iran now is, following our withdrawal from the agreement. So is it fair to compare them?

2. I applauded DJT for aggressively pursuing a deal with North Korea. I never bought the "legitimizing" argument. I think the idea of economic integration for North Korea is the best way to change their behavior. That behavior which includes supporting terrorism and selling missile technology to god knows who. Score one for Trump. That's why he talked about condos in Pyongyang.

But if you support that course of action - which has no details or verification system - why did you not support the Iran deal? They are based on the exact same theory. Sanctions relief/economic integration in exchange for better behavior. Now we have a one-page statement of purpose with North Korea and we threw out hundreds of pages of details, and this is what you get.

If you can explain that in a cogent manner, I'll consider myself enlightened.

It's the Trump presidency in a nutshell. One neverending photo-op, policy by tweet and no cogent line of thinking.

But I'm open to being proven wrong.
