The Iran nuclear deal has been passed by President Obama’s team and the five other world powers working with him.
According to the president, this means that Iran is “cut off” from building a nuclear weapon.
According to CBS DC, “The accord will keep Iran from producing enough material for a nuclear weapon for at least 10 years and impose new provisions for inspections of Iranian facilities, including military sites. And it marks a dramatic break from decades of animosity between the United States and Iran, countries that alternatively call each other the ‘leading state sponsor of terrorism’ and the ‘the Great Satan.’”
According to any sensible person, we’ve just made it a whole lot easier for Iran to obliterate us. Again, this is the “leading state sponsor of terrorism” that calls us “the Great Satan.” You really think it wants to play nice?
Hell no! With an emphasis on the “hell,” since that’s exactly where it wants to send us.
There isn’t a thing that Iran has done in the last 25 years that indicates it’s reasonable or trustworthy.
Of course, if Iran was reasonable, it wouldn’t bother to obliterate us at all. Why bother when we’re doing such a bang-up job of obliterating ourselves? Sure, more slowly, but with a lot less financial backing from Iran.
Our efforts, of course, are led by President Obama, who had this to say about the nuclear deal:
“I have been president and commander in chief for over six years now. Time and again I have faced decisions about whether or not to use military force. It’s the gravest decision that any president has to make. Many times in multiple countries I have had to use force, and I will never hesitate to do so when it is in our national security interest. I strongly believe that our national security interest now depends on preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, which means that without a diplomatic resolution, either I or a future U.S. president would face a decision about whether or not to allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon or whether or not to use our military to stop it. But simply, no deal means a greater chance of more war in the Middle East. Moreover, we give nothing up by testing whether or not this problem can be solved peacefully.”
Forget the fact that we give up EVERYTHING by beating the dead horse of Iranian goodwill. Instead note how, in that speech snippet, President Obama used the self-seeking pronoun “I” six times and the patriotic “we” just once. Which makes sense since this deal isn’t about America at all. It’s about him.
Isn’t everything though?
With a leader like that, who needs an enemy.
