I've Been Thinking:
A recent CNN poll shows that 56% of Americans are in favor of signing a treaty with Iran in exchange for the stopping of uranium enrichment and the lifting of certain sanctions.
56% is a very telling number. It means that 56% of Americans are hopeful.
But it does not explain why they think this way. That, I can explain.
Americans are trusting and optimistic --- actually to a fault. It is that trusting attitude which allows Americans to believe that a deal with the Iranians will benefit everyone.
It is very hard for the American spirit to see a down side. I will tell them what that down side is. Iran is not trustworthy. And that I can say 100%.
