Saud King supports Iran Deal; only Netanyahu and Fox news oppose.

When even King Salman of Saudi Arabia supports thee agreement to limit Iran's nuclear weapons, you have to wonder why Cheney, Netanyahu, and Congressional Republicans can get it so wrong.

Good for President Obama!

Good for Congressional Democrats!

Good for Russia, China, Germany, France, England!

Good for all the members of the UN Security Council!

Good for the more than 100 other nations who have voice support for the Nuclear deal!

Good for the World!

From al-Monitor [Emphasis added]:

For the record, Obama and [King] Salman agreed to cooperate on Iran “to counter Iran’s destabilizing activities in the region.” The king also “expressed his support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Iran and the P5+1 countries, which once fully implemented will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and thereby enhance security in the region.” The king’s position on the Iran deal reiterated and reinforced that of the US-Gulf Cooperation Council Camp David Summit in May.
For those who still might claim America’s “Arab allies” are opposed to the Iran deal, it is time for a fact check. As this column observed last month, it is Israel, alone among US allies and partners in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, that is on the record as opposed to the JCPOA.
Republicans  -- when will they ever learn?
