From Conservative Tribune: A deal has been reached with Iran and the P5+1 powers (the United States, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Germany) regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
After multiple extensions of the original deadline, Iran and the other powers announced today that they have come to an agreement that gives Iran what it wants.
According to reports, the 10-year deal includes a “comprehensive lifting of all sanctions” and allows Iran to keep 5,000 centrifuges.
Iran will continue its civilian nuclear programs. Iran has agreed to allow International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors to verify that its nuclear plants are for civilian purposes.
The deal reportedly also includes “snap back” feature that will reinstate sanctions should Iran violate the terms of the agreement. However these sanctions take months to take effect, so this is largely an empty threat.
Iran was already claiming victory, according to reports.
“None of those measures include closing our facilities; the proud people of Iran will not accept that. We will continue enriching.” Minister Javad Zarif declared (H/T PJ Media).
This is the worst possible outcome. America has bowed down to Iran and given them everything they want. We are simply removing all barriers to an Iranian bomb, with no meaningful way to stop them from developing it.
Iran has constantly stated that it wants the destruction of Israel and America, and giving them a path to a nuclear weapon will only ensure that someday soon they will have the capability to carry this threat out.
Details are still pouring in, and we have yet to see how Israel will react to this agreement. Israel has stated that it will take unilateral action if it feels Iran could get a bomb.
It has yet to be seen if Congress will take measures to prevent this deal from being implemented, but we can only hope that they will. They are our last hope to prevent a nuclear Iran.
President Obama has once again appeased our enemies, and someday soon we may all pay the price for his folly.
