“Obama and Kerry’s craven cave-in will haunt our future.”
This is the last sentence in a New York Post piece by Kyle Smith, in which the incredible stupidity of the Obama administration is on full display with the Iran nuclear “deal.”
I was thinking of this recently while re-reading Bill Koenig’s famous book, Eye to Eye, in which it is documented that whenever U.S. policy harmed Israel, something bad happened to the U.S.
With Tim Kaine touting the Iran deal during his debate with Mike Pence, the worst outcome of Obama’s tenure is in the news again.
Supporters of the deal, including the lifelong leftwing John Kerry, claim that it basically freezes Iran’s efforts to build nukes for a decade. Then, the terror state will ostensibly use uranium for power plants.
According to a report in Breitbart:
“The Iranian nuclear deal was signed in July 2015. A year later, the Associated Press published the provisions hidden in a document not publicly available previously, which elucidated what would happen to the Iranian nuclear program after the first ten years of the agreement’s implementation. According to that document, Iran will be allowed to begin ‘replacing its mainstay centrifuges with thousands of advanced machines.’ While it will ultimately possess fewer centrifuges to enrich uranium with, these machines will be so efficient, the AP notes, that ‘they will allow Iran to enrich at more than twice the rate it is doing now.’”
Further, the psychotic nature of Iran’s regime is evidenced in its attitude toward Israel:
“Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has done little to calm those alarmed by the possibility of Iran having access to advance uranium enrichment technology. Shortly after the signing of the deal, he published a book titled Palestine, in which he argues that Iran has a role to play in the destruction of Israel, and so must work to create and possess the strongest weapons possible.”
Meanwhile, Obama’s purposeful weakness is adding to the body count. Earlier in his tenure, when reformers in Iran were left to themselves, in part due to Obama abandoning them, widespread rape and torture was ordered by Tehran. The mullahs have used American timidity to consolidate power.
When Tehran gets concessions from the West, Iran pokes us in the eye in myriad ways.
Ahmad Vahidi, the former Iranian defense minister, who is wanted by Interpol for involvement in blowing up the Jewish community center in Argentina in 1994, was recently appointed head of Iran’s Supreme National Defense University.
In short, the only way to stop the Iranians is to use force. It’s all they understand. And as we’ve stated many times before, it’s the U.S. and the West that will suffer. Israel is under Divine Protection. As Smith said, the mortal danger Kerry and Obama have put us under will haunt us for a very long time to come.
