A Cowardly, Un-American Deal With Iran

Many Americans rightly watch in disbelief as leaders of our country push to conclude a dangerous and ill-conceived nuclear agreement with an incorrigible and evil nation, a leading sponsor of terrorism. Since when does the United States negotiate out of fear, out of weakness? But this is what is happening. How else to explain moving forward with a deal this complicated and dangerous with people no rational person would trust? Abrogation of American leadership, meaning America acting in an unprincipled and cowardly way, leads inevitably to a world more dangerous and less free. We should be ashamed.

Many Americans rightly watch in disbelief as leaders of our country push to conclude a dangerous and ill-conceived nuclear agreement with an incorrigible and evil nation, a leading sponsor of terrorism.

Since when does the United States negotiate out of fear, out of weakness? But this is what is happening. How else to explain moving forward with a deal this complicated and dangerous with people no rational person would trust?

Abrogation of American leadership, meaning America acting in an unprincipled and cowardly way, leads inevitably to a world more dangerous and less free. We should be ashamed.

Many have already written about the technical problems of this so-called deal. Huge time lags in follow-up inspections, allowing Iran to re-build its conventional arms arsenal, and that this will accelerate rather than decelerate the nuclear arms race in the Middle East and lead inevitably to a nuclear-armed Iran.

Administration officials don’t even try to deny that the hundreds of billions that will be released to Iran as result of lifting sanctions will provide funding for terror.

According to President Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, “We should expect that some portion of that money would go to the Iranian military and could potentially be used for the kinds of bad behavior that we have seen in the region up until now.”

Per testimony of Adam Szubin, acting undersecretary of the treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence: “I expect we’ll continue to see that…” regarding Iranian terrorism support.

And Wendy Sherman, undersecretary of state for political affairs, said, “As for Iran’s behavior, the United States is under no illusions.”

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a statement saying they will continue to support rogue activities. “Whether or not this drafted (nuclear agreement) text is approved through legal process in the country, the Iranian nation will not stop supporting the oppressed nation of Palestine, Yemen, Bahrain as well as the nations and governments of Syria, Iraq and the honest combatants in Lebanon and Palestine.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Mary O'Grady has written extensively about Iranian activities in Latin America.

“Iran has targeted Latin America since the mid-1980s,” O'Grady reports, “by establishing mosques and cultural centers to spread the revolution. An arm of Hezbollah, Iran’s Islamic fundamentalist proxy, took responsibility for the 1992 terrorist attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires. Argentine prosecutors named Iran as the mastermind behind the 1994 terrorist attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) in the same city.”

O'Grady continues, “In 2013 Alberto Nisman, the Argentine prosecutor who was investigating the AMIA case, released a 500-page report about the extensive Iranian terrorism network in the hemisphere. One of his more chilling findings was that the foiled 2007 plot to blow up New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport was an Iranian operation, run by a Guyanese recruit. In January Nisman was found in his Buenos Aires apartment with a bullet through his head.”

Iran is already violating sanctions. Senator Ted Cruz noted in the recent Republican debate that Iranian General Qasem Soleimani is “head of the al Quds forces … responsible for the murder of over 500 American servicemen in Iraq” and recently travelled to Russia against travel restrictions.

Freedom House, based in Washington, D.C, rates Iran, on a scale of 1-7 (1 being “most free”) a 6 on political rights and 6 on civil liberties.

It’s not just the American people and the Israeli people that need American leadership now. It is the Iranian people and the vast populations of people living in un-free Muslim nations.

Who will be the voice for freedom and civility in the world if not America?

No sane, responsible person does business with rogues that cannot be trusted. Not even a simple deal.

Our national anthem says that America is the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Free and brave people don’t do deals like this.
