Not only is the ink not dry on the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran, but the agreement hasn’t even been reached yet. Still, that’s not stopping Congressional hawks from planning on how to kill it.
Sens. Robert Menendez (D – NJ) and Mark Kirk (R – IL), long-time opponents of the nuclear negotiations, are promising to kill any deal that they find “unacceptable,” which by all indications means any deal at all.
They’ll be doing this by imposing new rounds of sanctions designed to explicitly violate the terms of the signed agreement, once the agreement is signed. The deal is expected to limit Iran’s civilian nuclear program in return for a reduction of sanctions.
Congressional hawks have been talking about sabotaging the negotiations themselves in this manner for over a year now, but with more hawks incoming after the mid-term vote, it will be much easier to push through such votes without risking an Obama veto.

War criminals. That's what the US Congress has become.
There will be one big leak which these morons cannot control. The rest of the world with the exception of Israel will ignore their new sanctions and begin to trade with Iran because the rest of the world will go by an agreement signed by an American President. How will the morons stop this? Impose sanctions on all of the world except Israel? That will result in a collapse of our economy of gigantic proportions.
If Iran agreed to demolish it's nuclear plants, hand over any and all existing stocks of refined nuclear materials, give up any and all conventional missiles, stop studying physics, chemistry, biology or any other subject that might lead to a weapon of some sort, and live under perpetual sanctions while praying towards Tel Aviv (rather than Mecca), would that satisfy the hawks in Congress? I don't think Iran's leaders will go for that plan, even though that's exactly what Israel's leaders have at various times demanded as conditions to make peace with Iran (except the praying part).
