Conservatives and common sense Americans both in the government and outside of it have been warning of the dangers posed by the Iran nuclear deal ever since its conception, but their protests were largely ignored as hogwash by progressives, who for whatever reason, believe a nation that hates us with a passion will keep its end of the bargain.Folks have argued until they’re blue in the face about how Iran will likely not keep up its end of the deal and will no doubt use this agreement to create nuclear weapons.
Well, a new secret document uncovered by the Associated Press pretty much confirms these fears.The Associated Press is reporting, A document obtained by The Associated Press shows that key restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program will ease in slightly more than a decade, halving the time Tehran would need to build a bomb.
The document is the only secret text linked to last year’s agreement between Iran and six foreign powers. It says that after a period between 11 to 13 years, Iran can replace its 5,060 inefficient centrifuges with up to 3,500 advanced machines.
Since those are five times as efficient, the time Iran would need to make a weapon would drop from a year to six months.
Iran says its enrichment is peaceful, but the program could be used for nuclear warheads.
The overwhelming majority of Americans know that opening the door for a nation that hates our country deeply — Iran routinely shouts “death to America” for goodness sake — to create and possess nuclear weapons is a horrible idea.
Iran having this sort of firepower puts Israel in extreme danger, not to mention our own country, which makes one wonder, what exactly was Obama’s goal in making this deal happen to begin with?
All we know for sure is this is bad news, which is why the deal needs to be shredded before things really go south.
Unless it’s already too late.
