Wait — this is good news.

Pat Dollard puts a happier face, if you will, on our negotiation strategy with Iran.
For some reason, no one told you that just 5 days before Monday’s talks, an entire floating army, with nearly 20,000 men, comprising the world’s largest naval strike force, led by the USS Nimitz and the USS Stennis, and also comprising the largest U.S. Naval armada in the Persian Gulf since 2003, came floating up unnanounced through the Straight of Hormuz, and rested right on Iran’s back doorstep, guns pointed at them. The demonstration of leverage was clear. And it also came on the exact date of the expiration of the 60 day grace period the U.N. had granted Iran.
Well, I did notice when the Big Stick passed through Hormuz. But, then, I don’t rely on the MSM for my news. I didn’t connect the dots with the 60-day period. But I’m still not happy about the choice of Memorial day.
