By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Of the many news reports that crossed my screen yesterday, two items caught my attention more than the others.
One item was a report on how the United States formerly and publically defended Iranâ€™s right to continue construction of their plutonium enrichment factory at Arak. That's right - the United States defended Iran's right.
The United States said that as long as the Iranians are not working on heavy water or plutonium itself, the plant can continue construction.
What the United States refuses to acknowledge is that once completed, the Arak plant will be in the perfect position to process plutonium for a bomb.
The other item was a report that the United States announced that they would be destroying Syrian weapons in the sea on a ship called the MV Cape Ray. The ship is a huge, 700 feet long. No country wanted to host the destruction so the United States will have to destroy these Syrian non-conventional weapons on its own.
These two items teach us a lot about what is happening in our world today. Item number one highlights that fact that the deal with Iran is really, honest and truly only good for Iran.
And item number two underscores the fact that no one other country cares about or is willing to help another no matter that it is for the greater good. When it's not about Iran, everyone is too busy to lend a hand.
