Tyrants Lie: Why the Deal with Iran Won't Work

The Obama Administration has announced a deal with Iran over that country’s nuclear program, which Iran claims is for peaceful purposes and those who believe in reality know is for building nuclear weapons.

The deal, which takes effect January 20, is clearly designed to keep Congress from adding new sanctions against Iran. The initial agreement, which is only preliminary, would supposedly allow inspections in exchange for lifting some sanctions.

Does any serious person believe Iran, which is on record as wishing to destroy Israel and the United States, and whose leaders claim to have a mandate from Allah, is going to abide by any agreement with the United States, which it considers The Great Satan?

Recall North Korea broke several agreements with the U.S. about its nuclear program and used those agreements to buy time while it kept working on acquiring nukes.

Here is some breaking news: tyrants lie. The Obama Administration, which has no discernable foreign policy, is about to take us down a path we will live – or die – to regret.
