'I will veto' new legislation against Iran, Obama tells Congress

"Let me be clear," Obama said: "If this Congress sends me a new sanctions bill now that threatens to derail these talks, I will veto it."

What a disgrace for America.  An electorate ignorant about foreign affairs in general and devoid of any understanding about the Middle East in particular elects a President who is through appeasement of Iran pushing the world towards catastrophe.   This is a pivotal moment in US and world history. Will Congress have enough sane politicians to override the President’s veto and prove that the Founding Fathers had indeed created a political system in which such disasters just cannot happen?
