The deal made between the United States and Iran is a false bargain. Iran believes it has orders from its god to build a nuclear weapon and use it against Israel. Its leaders past and present have said so. Even Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator said last May: "(The goal of Iran and its allies is to) uproot Capitalism, Zionism and Communism, and promote the discourse of pure Islam in the world."
No sooner had the deal been announced then Iran’s president issued a statement in which he said it does not prevent Iran from continuing to enrich uranium. Secretary of State John Kerry says it does. That's not an auspicious start when two of the signatories disagree on what they’ve agreed to.
This deal is like the 1938 Munich Pact. Britain believed it had saved Europe from a second world war. Instead, Hitler was encouraged to start that war.
We will regret this deal. It is President Obama’s attempt to distract fom his failing health insurance law. It is Obama’s Munich.
