The Iran Nuclear Deal continues to inch its way across the Senate and, although it appears to be falling off the radar of most news organizations, – Donald Trump’s inane statements of policy and Hillary’s server woes have supplanted it – the president continues to defend the non-treaty and threatens to ignore Congress to ensure that this diplomatic disaster goes into effect.
I have made no secret of my contempt for the Iran deal and even more for the way it has been foisted onto the American public, but when the President of the United States admits that the assets to be released to the Mullahs will be used to fund terrorism it made me realize that I was wrong in thinking that the agreement was misguided and stupid.
“We have no illusions about the Iranian government or the significance of the Revolutionary Guard and the Quds Force. Iran supports terrorist organizations like Hezbollah. It supports proxy groups that threaten our interests and the interests of our allies, including proxy groups who killed our troops in Iraq,” President Obama said.
During the same speech, Obama offered up the same false choice he has continued to push. That the choice is between this agreement and war. Although it sounds good to his supporters, that statement ignores an array of other options that include continuing or increasing sanctions, a different – more comprehensive – agreement or even regime change.
The Iranian nuclear agreement will make the United States complicit in terrorist attacks. We will no longer be able to hold ourselves morally above the animals that kill civilians and unarmed non-combatants because we gave them the money to do it. We will, as a country, be no better than, as Vice President Biden put it, the “perverted jihadist.”
The European countries that are signatories to the nuclear deal want to open up the Iranian markets for their goods and want Iranian oil in return. Old World economies, strained and tattered after fifty years of social engineering, are desperate for new markets. Russia and China are resurrecting the Iranian country as a useful foil against the United States.
Sadly, if the nuclear deal comes to pass – and I am not sanguine about Congress stopping it – it will, with the stroke of a pen, mark the moment when the United States actually becomes the Great Satan and begins funding terrorists just like Iran does. Welcome to the new America.
