The immediate past US “president” reentered the public foray criticizing the current Administration with a statement decrying President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. In a lengthy defense of his foreign policy gemstone, the ex “president” said without the Iran agreement “the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East.” When it comes to war in the Middle East, the ex “president” is the expert. He and his administration supported the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group’s Arab Spring revolts throughout the Middle East and Africa, bringing complete instability to the region. This is his foreign policy legacy.
Let us remember the war that the ex “president” supported, supplied, and funded that created the Syrian situation today and expanded the power base of the terrorist state of Iran.
In March 2012, Arab Muslim journalist Khaled Abu Toameh wrote that the Arab Spring was supposed to promote women’s rights, encourage the abandonment of terrorism, moderation and pragmatism. He writes, “But judging from the outcome of the uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen, it is evident that the “Arab Spring” has failed to achieve any of these goals. As far as many Arabs are concerned, their “spring” has thus far proven to be a total disaster.”
He concluded: “In these four Arab countries, women, Christians, journalists, human rights activists and political opponents are being targeted, and in some instances slaughtered, on a daily basis either by the new rulers or militiamen and Muslim fundamentalists.”
Does anyone remember how the ex “president” supported the overthrow of Libya by backing al Qaeda fighters there—many of which had returned from Iraq where they killed American soldiers? Or how about the mess he created in Egypt by supporting a so-called “democratic” Muslim Brotherhood overthrow of Egypt’s government; or the civil war in Syria by supporting not only the Muslim Brotherhood, but also the Islamic State, al Qaeda and other terrorist groups? Then came the Iran deal with $100 billion in cash delivered on pallets with no restrictions on how it was spent.
To defend his foreign policy with a statement that pulling out of this horrible Iran nuclear deal will result in a nuclear Iran or another war in the Middle East is no less than delusional. It is because of this agreement and his other actions that we have more war now and will have a nuclear Iran.
The Iran nuclear deal actually funded Iran’s nuclear program, fomented terror, and helped destabilize Syria and Lebanon. How can someone be so blind? It is the thinking of man over the wisdom of God. It is the worry of how other nations will view America, rather than how God will judge her.
It is the refusal to receive the love of truth, as 2 Thessalonians 2:11 says,
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”
