The I Ran Into a Bomb of a Deal
The argument against the Iran Deal’s publicized “merits” to extinguish the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon is that a better deal could have been negotiated. The problem with that assertion is the foolish presumption that what currently exists qualifies as an agreement with any degree of effectiveness.
It’s downright terrible and embarrassing on an epic level.
“Iran, in an unusual arrangement, will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect a site it allegedly used to develop nuclear arms under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work,” the Associated Press reports.
Don’t be fooled: The P5+1 did not engage in negotiations with Iran all these years, but instead gradually collapsed into a series of devastatingly bad concessions to one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
What did the United States get in this agreement? The answer is increasingly nothing relative to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The consequences of this deal for Israel are directly connected to its survival.
The key question in all of this is why did it take Secretary Kerry and Co. so long to give the farm and all the land away? The willful incompetence and delusional views of the Obama Administration (not just with this deal) is simply incomprehensible.
If we don’t like President Obama’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad deal, tough luck because we’ll likely have to live with President Obama’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad deal.
Out of curiosity, are there any international sanctions against common sense? If so, the U.S. and its P5+1 allies are in trouble.
