The Obama administration, and especially the President, are in full used car salesman mode with the Iran framework that John T Kerry (that’s “T” for “traitor”) Kerry hashed out last week.
Progressives love it. Muslims love it. Iran really loves it.
You should be scared to death of it. Why? Because this deal has everything necessary to bring on World War III. Really.
Joining the President in his sales pitch is the national media. CNN was first up with adulation for the wonderful diplomacy and smart foreign policy that brought this deal to the table. The only thing that was left out of their praise was a clear statement that Barack Obama’s commitment to world peace and a new vision for the Middle East has brought “Peace in our Time.”
“It is a good deal, a deal that meets our core objectives.” That was Pres. Obama yesterday from the White House Rose Garden wearing his new, fashionable, rose colored glasses. “This framework would cut off every pathway that Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon.”
The president also noted that the deal insured that if Americans liked their healthcare and their doctor, they would be able to keep them with ObamaCare.
“If he Iran sheets, the world will know it.” What he didn’t note was that the world would know Iran cheated because Tel Aviv would look like this.
There is nothing in the current “framework” for this deal with Iran that references a “right to exist” for the nation of Israel. We’re sure it won’t be referenced in any final language either, given the Obama administration’s hatred of Israel.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, in a terse response to a question about Netanyahu’s concerns, told reporters, “This is an agreement that is only about the nuclear issue” — a comment that indicates the Obama administration is not looking to enshrine Israel’s security into a final agreement.
Harf, for her part, suggested the talks are complicated enough already.
“This is an agreement that doesn’t deal with any other issues, nor should it,” she said.
This is a very, very bad deal. The bottom line is that Iran will have a free hand to develop nuclear weapons and we will release sanctions immediately to revitalize their economy. A revitalized Iranian economy will give the Muslim terrorists in charge of Iran the cash flow that they need to appropriately fund the Muslim terrorist organizations that they support worldwide.
Here’s the deal in a nutshell:
- Iran will be allowed to continue their weaponization research and development. That’s the same R&D that the Obama White House described as “very alarming” in 2011. The Iranians will promise – again – to cooperate with the IAEA, but they won’t.
- Verification of Iran’s compliance with any terms of this agreement will be based on believing Iran’s declaration that they are complying. There will be no effective inspections.
- None of Iran’s nuclear facilities or research and development sites will be shut down.
- Iran will be allowed to operate thousands of centrifuges to continue to enrich uranium. Historical US position, backed by multiple United Nations Security Council resolutions, has been that Iran must stop all enrichment. Pres. Obama said that was “unrealistic” and the number of centrifuges has increased from 1,000 to the current level of over 6,000 in this “framework.”
- The “restrictions” on Iran’s nuclear program will be phased out over ten years. The original position of the West was that restrictions would be permanent. Obviously Pres. Obama thought that was an “unrealistic” provision as well.
- The key provision of this agreement for Iran is that the limited economic sanctions currently in place will be phased out immediately. Pres. Obama unilaterally phased out billions of dollars worth of sanctions as an enticement to get the Iranians to the “bargaining” table. We believe that was a clear message that he would give them whatever they wanted.
This deal is so bad that even the French don’t like it. It’s a complete cave-in to the Iranian mullahs who currently run the state-sponsored Muslim terrorism from Tehran. This deal will bring “Peace In Our Time” to the Middle East in the same manner that the Munich agreement brought “Peace in Our Time” to Europe.
Our problem today is that we don’t see a Winston Churchill on the horizon.
