And When We Are Faced with a Nuclear Iran?

Iran’s Foreign Minister and chief nuclear negotiator, Javad Zarif (left), is very, very pleased with the recent nuclear deal. Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (right), is not unclenching Iran’s fist in its relations with the West.

 

  • Are we actually being told, then, that the only way to prevent Iran from having nuclear bombs is to let it have them? If not now, in 10-15 years? And with intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach the U.S.?
  • Even supporters of the deal say that yes, at the ten year mark, Iran will be able to breakout and build a weapon’s worth of nuclear fuel in a year or less — in other words, have nuclear bombs.
  • Iran has never come clean with the IAEA — or anyone else — about its nuclear activities. These were discovered not by IAEA inspectors but by the U.S. and allied law enforcement and intelligence services, as well as by dissident groups within Iran. Are we actually assuming that Iran, under this new deal, will now come clean?
  • Thus under the July deal the U.S. may not (technically) know if Iran, after a breakout, has a nuclear weapon arsenal until Iran either tests a nuclear warhead or explodes it in an American or Israeli city. Then, of course, the discovery will be “too late” to do anything about, especially if the U.S. is helping Iran with technology assistance designed to prevent attacks on Iran’s nuclear sites.
  • Having made so many concessions to a non-nuclear Iran, how tough in the future will we be, faced with a nuclear Iran?

Iran says its nuclear technology program is totally peaceful. In 31 other countries with peaceful nuclear programs, there are 438 nuclear power plants in operation, and in another 16 countries, 67 plants under construction.

Under the terms of the 1969 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, any nation adopting nuclear energy has to comply with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) rules. Every one of these nearly 50 countries does. Iran does not. Continue reading

Obama: If Congress kills Iran deal, rockets will fall on Tel Aviv

On the contrary, this ‘deal’ which Barack Obama gave Iran in order to help them gain everything and the West nothing, puts Israel on a collision course and forces Saudi Arabia to go nuclear. Under the nuclear accord, America is now obligated to defend Iran thanks to the new deal. The Obama administration also doesn’t even care about access to Iranian nuclear sites and even the Ayatollah has called the Obama administration a bunch of liars in regards to the propaganda it feeds American public. Add to this an earlier threat to shoot down Israeli warplanes should they carry out a strike on Iran, and you can see is America’s first Liar in Chief and enemy of Israel. Outside Israel, the only other nation at the moment who seems to care is France who warned of imminent attack should it not abide by the already-corrupt deal.

 

Without nuclear pact, president warns US Jews, America will be forced to attack Iran — and Israel will bear the brunt of the response

WASHINGTON — If the US Congress shoots down the Iranian nuclear deal, America will eventually be pressured into a military strike against Tehran’s nuclear facilities, which will in turn increase terror against Israel, US President Barack Obama told Jewish leaders Tuesday, a source who was present at the meeting said.

During the two-hour meeting, Obama said it was legitimate for opponents of the deal to lobby lawmakers to reject it, but added that a discussion focused on personal attacks, rather than the merits of the deal, could jeopardize the coherence of the American Jewish community and ultimately the resilience of US-Israel relations, according to Greg Rosenbaum, the chair of the National Jewish Democratic Council.

How the Iranian Nuclear Agreement Will Change History

https://images.thetrumpet.com/55a58e94!h.355,id.12035

 

Iran just made a deal to moderate its nuclear activity for sanctions relief. This is a decisive moment, setting the course in the time ahead for the Middle East and beyond.

Yesterday it was announced that the P5+1 nations reached a deal with Iran regarding its nuclear program. If enacted, the deal will lift economic sanctions against Iran in exchange for concessions in its pursuit of nuclear technology.

Many observers are describing this deal as historic. That is absolutely right—but most people fail to understand why. A full appreciation for its significance requires viewing events from the unique perspective of how it fulfills biblical prophecy.

This deal sets the course for what happens in the Middle East for years to come. We are certain to look back on it as a decisive moment in world events.

The most important effect is that it cements Iran’s position as king of the Middle East. This is a prophetically significant role that the Trumpet has believed for over two decades that Iran would fulfill. Probably nothing has highlighted the truth of this analysis more than what just happened. You can read the proof behind this conclusion in our booklet The King of the South. Continue reading

Bombshell report: U.S. fighting for Iranian militia in Iraq

‘Unbelievable betrayal of maimed and killed American troops’

WASHINGTON – “This is such an unbelievable betrayal of all those troops who were attacked, maimed and killed by these same Iran-backed Shi’ite terror militias in the 2000s.”

That was the reaction of Iran expert Clare Lopez to the news that U.S. forces in Iraq are now supporting Iranian militias.

The headline of a Bloomberg article Monday blared: “Iran’s Forces and U.S. Share a Base in Iraq.”

But buried within the story was an item that Lopez found significantly more alarming.

According to the report, U.S. troops are not just cohabitating with Iran’s Shiite militia units, “But the U.S. is flying close air support missions for those forces.”

“Fighting on the same side of anything that includes this jihadist Iranian regime ought to be unthinkable,” Lopez told WND.

Pentagon: Iran Continuing Work on Nuclear Systems

 Covert support for terrorism ‘unabated’

Iran is continuing to develop missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons despite an interim agreement on its nuclear programs, according to a Pentagon report.

“Although Iran has paused progress in some areas of its nuclear program and fulfilled its obligations under the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA), it continues to develop technological capabilities that also could be applicable to nuclear weapons, including ballistic missile development,” a one-page unclassified summary of the report says.

A copy of the report was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The report was due to Congress in January but was not sent to the Armed Services Committee as required by law until this month. Analysts said the delay appeared designed to avoid upsetting Tehran and the nuclear talks. Continue reading
