Proponents of the Iran nuclear deal have said President Obama’s only “positive” foreign affairs move has protected the Middle East and stopped Iran from being military players in the region. This has been demonstrated to be absolutely incorrect. The Iranians are exporting weapons. They are supporting terrorists. They are almost certainly still working towards building nuclear weapons.
Tear up the nuclear deal. Tell the United Nations to do the same. Lay the harshest possible sanctions on them for signing an agreement in good faith and then immediately betraying all trust that was given to them. Tell Russia and any other nations that support them to either be on the side of peace and stability or continue enabling a rogue regime to bring strife to the region and the rest of the world.
Do all of this, and do it soon.
This isn’t just the United States, Saudi Arabia, and Israel who are questioning Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal. The United Nations is well-aware of the infractions, but so far have done nothing but propose another resolution to strengthen the rules, just in case the landmark agreement they already signed was somehow misunderstood.
You can’t make this stuff up. Here’s what U.N. Undersecretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman told the U.N. Security Council when describing options the Secretary-Gerneral’s Iran report revealed.
“The Security Council could strengthen the provisions of Resolution 2231; We could adopt a new resolution that makes clear that Iran is prohibited from all activities related to ballistic missiles.”
If Iran was unwilling to stay within the light boundaries of the original deal, there’s no possible chance they’ll accept tighter restrictions and stick with them. They will break them just as they’ve broken the lighter rules already before them. This reminds me of Einstein’s definition of insanity. We can’t continue to placate the Iranians and expect them to react differently.
There are those who will point to the humanitarian repercussions of reimposing sanctions. Lest we forget, Iran already received the vast majority of their money from the Obama administration and when the United Nations released their funds. They are swimming in enough money to protect their people’s welfare for a long time if they choose to do so. Laying down sanctions will only do as much harm to the Iranian people as the government is willing to allow. In other words, that’s no longer our problem.
Today’s missile attack on Riyadh should be the last bit of evidence anyone needs to conclude Iran is not complying with the nuclear deal.
Saudi Arabia says Yemen Iran-backed Houthi rebel ballistic missile intercepted heading for Rihadh
The Yemeni rebels said they launched a ballistic missile to target Yamama Palace in Riyadh, where King Salman chairs weekly government meetings and receives dignitaries and heads of state from around the world.
Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, last week introduced what she said was irrefutable evidence that Iran has violated U.N rules by providing the Houthi rebels with arms.
The Iran nuclear deal was doomed from the start. All the warning signs were there, but hope and ignorance overruled discernment and common sense. It may be too late to apply real pressure now that we’ve given them everything they wanted up front, but we can correct the current situation by treating them as the enemies of peace that they are.
