Additionally, Iran agreed to ship spent fuel out of the country forever and allow IAEA inspectors access to the facilities in perpetuity. This monitoring of uranium mining and centrifuge activity will last for up to 20 years.
This could potentially push Iran’s timeline for a bomb to over a year, as opposed to only a couple months, and keep them within the confines of peaceful uses of the energy only.Secretary of State Kerry, President Obama and other international leaders such as UK Prime Minister David Cameron have hailed the deal as ‘historic.’ President Obama went so far as to say that “every pathway to a nuclear weapon is cut off.” President Obama, in his comments, just reinforce what a foolhardy President he is. In Syria, another state sponsor of terrorism, dictator Bashar al-Assad also sent his congratulations on the deal. Immediately, Israeli officials as well as the Chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee came out blasting the deal. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that “Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons,” and that the deal was “a bad mistake of historic proportions.” Netanyahu assured the global community that he will fight the deal’s ratification in the U.S.’s Republican-controlled Congress. Miri Regev, a former spokeswoman for the Israeli military who now serves as a minister in the government went even further saying that the deal gave Iran a “licensee to kill.” Here in America the outcry from some politicians is just as loud. Representative Devin Nunes Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee was just as pessimistic, saying “I don’t know what information the Obama administration possesses that indicates this deal will actually prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon or will cause the mullahs to reduce their support for worldwide terrorism, but it sure isn’t the same intelligence we’re seeing in the Intelligence Committee… Iran has killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers, tried to conduct a terrorist attack in the United States, and is committed to annihilating Israel. This deal will guarantee Iran the capability to carry out its clear intent.” Congress now has 60 days to review the deal before it comes to a vote. If it is blocked, President Obama can use his veto thus requiring a two-thirds majority to override it. This means Democrats would have to join in the effort as well. There are still significant hurdles to overcome before the deal can go into effect. While peace is an admirable goal, Iran has no intention of peace. They are just continually using the naiveity of the Obama administration to buy themselves more time to advance their publicly stated goal of obtaining a nuclear weapon and destroying Israel. __________________________ From the Wall Street Journal:
