Having agreed terms with Iranian negotiators over that country’s nuclear program, President Obama said he feels confident that the deal with Iran is a “good one.”
Unfortunately, Obama is all but alone in his position, as many in Congress, as well as leaders around the world, have dubbed the deal terrible and one that leaves Iran open to enrich uranium at alarming levels.
The whole issue is strange and many ask why a country so rich with oil and gas as Iran would even need a nuclear program for its domestic needs.
The fact that Iran is a militant Islamic country which openly calls for the destruction of Israel and the United States seems not to bother President Obama much either, a minor point he brushes over whenever challenged.
However, Obama seems to have landed himself in some hot water recently, following an interview with NRP in which the usually-perfect orator seemed very muddled with his comments concerning the Iran deal.
So muddled in fact that, if one didn’t know better, one may have thought Obama was a mole planted by the Iranians since he is not only not preventing its path to a nuclear weapon, but, according to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he is actually “paving it.”
Obama said in the interview,
“What is a more relevant fear is that in the year 13, 14, 15, [the Iranians] have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero. Keep in mind, though, currently, the breakout times are only about two to three months by our intelligence estimates, So essentially, we’re purchasing for 13, 14, 15 years, assurances that the breakout is at least a year… that — that if they decided to break the deal, kick out all the inspectors, break the seals and go for a bomb, we’d have over a year to respond. And we have those assurances for at least well over a decade.”
Those comments suggest that Iran could move to “break out” in “zero” time, according to the President of America.
Israel’s position is clear; deal or no deal, the Jewish State is not about to stand idly by and allow a regime bent on its total annihilation to achieve a nuclear weapon of any sort, ever.
Both the Prime Minister of Israel, as well as the Internal Security Minister, have already said that if they get wind of Iran moving towards a nuclear weapon, be it in five, 10 or 15 years time, Israel has the capability to send Iran back to the dark ages, due to the massive military might of the Jewish State.
