So, who is the wiser or foolish negotiator with Iran, China or the USA?

I wrote a post today titled Billy Joel, CEO’s or Politicians, to explain the USA political leaders negotiated trade deals with China and the result is China now has political influence with USA CEO’s.

President Trump after being elected broke off the Obama/Kerry Iran negotiated trade deal because he recognized it to be another bad trade deal negotiated by inept USA negotiators.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient Ecclesiastes verse in addition to the one in the previous post for anyone interested in comparing the China Iran deal vs. the USA Iran Deal.

King Solomon

Woe to you, O land, when your king is a child, And your princes feast in the morning! (Ecclesiastes 10:16)

What’s My Point?

I related the above verse to be interpreted to the USA politicians who were inept children compared to the China, Iran leaders when they negotiated trade deals and the Nuclear Treaty.

The princes feasting may be interpreted as the Congressional leaders who perhaps in some way benefited by Corporation lobbyists. Did they behave like children who accept candy when the CEO’s contributed to their campaign funds? Or like Joe Biden who negotiated a deal with Ukraine to pay his son $50,000 a month and who knows what other arrangement was made when Joe Biden went to China?

My point is to recommend you read the two deals in the Source Links below and then decide who you will trust to represent USA trade national interests when you vote in the 2020 Presidential election.

In My Opinion

The Obama Kerry Iran deal included the USA returning 100 billion USA dollars to Iran and a number of other provisions to buy Iran centrifuge product of heavy water even though the USA has centrifuges and can supply from USA sources.

Who knows what else was included in the deal?

Iran was funding the forces fighting against USA troops in Iraq,

Removing US economic sanctions was helping Iran to fund weapons for Hamas in Palestine and Lebanon, and Yemen terrorists.

If you read the deal China negotiated, it allows China to send “5,000 Chinese military personnel to be stationed in the country to protect their interests and the Chinese air force would be given access to Iranian bases.”

The US deal would not allow any US inspectors to even inspect Iran military bases, let alone allow US troops on Iran soil.

If Interested,

You Decide

I have stated in numerous previous posts on my opinions about the USA inept political trade deals made, that China negotiators were smarter than USA and gave numerous examples based on my personal experiences in business dealing with China sources.

If after reading, you decide who you trust and vote for in the 2016 to represent the USA national interests and make trade deals.

If after reading my previous post, Billy Joel, CEO’s or Politicians, will Iran be indeed stepping on a landmine laid under a table in a dinner meeting with China?

Regards and goodwill blogging.
