Easing the sanctions on Iran will do nothing but get ink and reinforce American weakness in the heart of every bad player on the planet. The comments "line in the sand," "don't call my bluff" and the picture's clearer then ever.

Israel's right to be worried.

Iran, the country that supplied IEDs that maimed countless American soldiers, is now thought to be sincere when they've been caught continuing its nuclear bomb development in secret after promising not to? Is anybody even watching?

Watch. North Korea will again threaten something, somewhere, and get some ridiculous sum in the billions of food and medicine from America in exchange for a temporary "promise" of non-aggression.

Reason? America's in a givin' mood.
