Empty Boasts About Bad Iran Deal

Barack Obama can’t help but boast about his terrible deal with Iran, even if his boasts are empty. He called it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to stop nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. Wrong – the Saudis will see to that. Furthermore, Obama insisted, for Israel it means “we’ve got their backs.” How so? “This is our best bet by far to make sure Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon,” Obama said. “What we will be doing even as we enter into this deal is sending a very clear message to the Iranians and to the entire region that if anybody messes with Israel, America will be there.” Somehow we doubt his sincerity, even if he complains it’s “personally difficult” for him to hear people don’t believe he loves Israel. He also said, “I would consider it a failure on my part, a fundamental failure of my presidency, if on my watch, or as a consequence of work that I had done, Israel was rendered more vulnerable.” Well, it’s a failure. “There is no formula, there is no option,” he added, “to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon that will be more effective than the diplomatic initiative and framework that we put forward – and that’s demonstrable.” Actually, the experts say the deal is not verifiable. But nothing will burst Obama’s fantasy bubble.

Obama also defined the “Obama Doctrine”: “The doctrine is we will engage but we preserve all our capabilities. I’ve been very clear that Iran will not get a nuclear weapon on my watch.” What does that mean? Well, this “deal” ensures that Iran will have the capability to develop a nuclear weapon under the next administration. Even Obama later admitted as much.

As for Congress, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) said, “If the president feels like this is something that’s good for the nation, surely he can sell this to the United States Senate and the House.” No wonder Obama doesn’t want to even try.

Meanwhile, don’t miss what Charles Krauthammer calls the fundamental problem with the deal.
