Kerry tells Congress to hold off on new Iran sanctions for now

Washington (CNN) - He doesn't trust Iran, vows it won't get nuclear weapons, and believes past rhetoric by its leaders threatening annihilation of Israel is unacceptable and kind of insane.

So why is Secretary of State John Kerry so adamant about getting time to try to negotiate an agreement that would further curb Iran's nuclear ambitions in exchange for lifting crippling economic sanctions?

    We can annihilate Iran is 15 minutes. I know the war hawks like Cheney and McCain would love that, but let's try a different approach. No?

    In case anyone hasn't noticed, Kerry, is not the brightest bulb on the tree. He has money and that is the source of his advancement. Hi is a grade a boob.

    There needs to be something done when Iran fails. I don't know how the Congress is going to get all the updates they should about the inspectors, but this is something important. I think the Iranians have been given too much time and leniency when it comes their nuclear program. Besides, they support terrorist and their activities. That can't be ignored.
