Today there are no ‘mistakes’.
The Obama administration knows exactly what it’s doing and is far from ignorant. It’s clearly siding with Iran and putting Israel’s back against the wall. Israel will be forced to defend its existence — as it clearly demonstrated it’s capable of the other day. If and when Israel chooses to strike, the propaganda machines globally will be running full speed and claim Israel as the evil war mongering aggressor. It’s the perfect trap designed by the Obama administration in collusion with Iran and other hostile nations.
Democratic New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez made headlines during a hearing with Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken in January when he said, “I have to be honest with you, the more I hear from the administration and quotes, the more it sounds like talking points coming out of Tehran.”
Amir Hossein Motaghi, an Iranian reporter who defected to Switzerland last week, recently made a similar comment about the American approach to nuclear talks with Iran: “The U.S. negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal.”
Obama officials have recently tried to defend their controversial nuclear diplomacy with Iran by implicitly arguing that a bad deal with Iran would be better than no deal since the only alternative is war with Iran. Jeffrey Lewis, a pro-Obama arms control expert, openly made a case for this argument in a March 11, 2015 ForeignPolicy.com article titled “Why a ‘Bad’ Deal With Iran Is Better Than No Deal at All.”
I absolutely disagree. The agreement that the Obama administration is pushing will leave Iran’s nuclear infrastructure in place, allow it to retain the capability to construct multiple nuclear weapons, and legitimize the Iranian nuclear program. The agreement also will say nothing about Iran’s ballistic missile program and its sponsorship of terror.
Moreover, a weak, short-duration nuclear agreement with Iran is certain to destabilize the Middle East at a time when Iran is expanding its influence and control in the region, including by arming Shiite Houthi rebels who recently ousted Yemen’s government. Such an agreement could lead to a Middle East nuclear arms race and possibly a regional war.
