Obama's legacy: A nuclear Iran ~ By Armstrong Williams

Iran’s supreme leader spoke in recent days of “devilish” actions by the United States, underscoring the Iranian belief that our nation is “the Great Satan.” As always, the crowd began a familiar chant, “Death to America.” The administration did not condemn these vile realities. Instead, it asserted that this was intended for a “domestic political audience” and that it somehow proved that the United States needs to negotiate a deal with Tehran.

When someone, or in this case an aspiring dominator of the Middle East with a track record of supplying money, arms, training and other support to terrorist organizations, says that our death is their goal, we should take them at their word. The best way to safeguard our national security, stand with our allies and protect our interests in the Middle East would be actually preventing the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism from acquiring nuclear weapons, not merely creating delays. 

The president seems to think the American public is stupid. He campaigned on promises of “hope and change.” Lofty rhetoric, but we never saw much of either. Now, if the president signs an agreement that legitimizes and permits an Iranian path to a nuclear weapon, the only change he will have made is that we will have no hope left.
It is probably a good thing that Congress is stepping in, and legislating a role in the Iran nuclear agreement, and sanctions against Iran.  For Obama, it is probably a very good thing.  It was a lousy deal, and everyone knew it.  When everything falls apart before June 30, 2015, Obama will probably blame Congress for interfering. And if you ask me, I think he was hoping that Congress would get him out of such a bad deal for all of the reasons that Armstrong writes about.  But, now what?  Just sayin'...

From Commentary

As if the Islamic Republic of Iran’s determined pursuit of nuclear weapons, track record of bloody terrorism, aggressive geopolitical power grabs, abhorrent human-rights violations and history of lies were not enough – President Obama’s recent interview should prove to everyone just how dangerous the framework agreement announced in Lausanne on April 2 really is.

In an interview with Tom Friedman, President Obama said, “I’ve been very clear that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch.” That last bit bears repeating: “… Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch.” This confirms what many of us have suspected all along: The framework agreement will enable Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon; the mullahs in Tehran will just have to wait a little while.

Hiding under skillful rhetorical cover, Obama basically said that he believes a 10-year agreement keeps nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands until dealing with the Islamic Republic becomes someone else’s problem. He essentially told the American public that our fears are true: He apparently cares about the fate of America’s national security and the security of American allies only while he’s sitting in the Oval Office.

As we all know, Iran has mastered the tactics of intransigence, deceit and waiting the Western powers out over the years. Indeed, a key component of Iran’s strategy has always been to buy more and more time through extensions of diplomatic talks and the stonewalling of transparent inspections and verifications of its nuclear facilities.
