Fox News columnist, Charles Krauthammer, once again nails it right on the head with two of the biggest warning points regarding the Iran nuclear deal. Here’s his bottom line:
1. IRAN GETS BIG MONEY
“Iran is promised a total lifting of sanctions— that’s UN, EU, United States, everywhere…it [the deal] will supercharge the Iranian economy, it will strengthen the regime, it will give it tens of billions of dollars with which not only to build its nuclear facilities, but to use its proxy wars around the Middle East. That’s number one. It gets its economy back.”
2. IRAN IS NOT CLOSING A SINGLE NUCLEAR FACILITY
“Secondly,” Krauthammer continues, “the most astonishing thing is that in return, they are not closing a single nuclear facility. Their entire nuclear facility is intact.”
So, let me get this straight. In making this agreement and lifting the current sanctions, Iran is promising not to build nuclear weapons. But my question is, what would hold them back from building or using nuclear weapons after gaining billions of dollars and retaining fully operational nuclear facilities?
Talk about dangerous. But, no worries. President Obama assures us that the sanctions they’re about to lift, which restrain Iran, will simply “snap back” if Iran breaks the agreement.Obama also tried to quell fears of Iran building nuclear weapons by saying, “If Iran cheats, the world will know it.” Unfortunately, President Obama is right. Once Iran has the nuclear weapons, we’ll know it, because they’ll probably use them. And no sanction in the world will be able stop them.
