Let me begin with a thirteen minute speech delivered by Caroline Glick. If you didn’t know that Glick was an American born Jewish gal that is now an Israeli citizen and senior editor for the Jerusalem Post, you would think she was an evangelical preacher. THIS IS GOOD PREACHING!

Caroline Glick speaks out against Obama’s surrender to Iran and his facilitation of their mass murder terrorist operations and acquisition of nuclear weapons. (Video Hat Tip: United with Israel)
America has endured seven years of Obama cover-ups and lies. Combine this with a gullible duped electorate that admires America’s first Black President while ignoring the destructive nature of Obama’s transformation of America. You will see the full swing of tragedy engulfing America with Congress laying down its constitutional power to Executive Order authority.
International agreements that have the force of law comes under the category of a Treaty. The Constitution tells us all treaties need Congressional approval. Obama has flouted the Constitution by pushing the envelope of the rule of law with the fiat of an Executive Order. The Executive Order/Agreement is nothing new in the evolution of the Executive Branch stretching the bounds of the Constitution often with the consent of the Judicial Branch. UNFORTUNATELY this Iran Nuke Deal by Obama’s Administration has all the elements of a Treaty; however Obama’s EO power has placed Congress in the position of passing legislation to overrule an agreement that will affect America’s future National Security, Israel’s existence and undermine the few Arab/Sunni-Muslim allies the government has courted because of a threatening Twelver-Shia Iran.
Rather than being the constitutional position of the required 2/3 Senate approval of a Treaty, Obama is forcing legislation to pass both Houses and if there is a Presidential veto both Houses have to come up with 2/3 majorities to override the veto.
On a personal level it is my feeling that any agreement that allows a saber rattling and terrorist supporting nation such as Iran is not worth the paper signed upon. It is my understanding that Iran’s nuclear program is left intact including the ability to enrich weapons grade uranium. Iranians are just promising they won’t pursue such an enrichment for ten years. So even if we can believe weapons grade enrichment is suspended, Iran can pick up where they left off. And assuming there is no clandestine nuclear enrichment, Iran is more than free to develop weaponry including Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) capable of carrying some form of weapon(s) of mass destruction (WMD).
Also Obama’s nuke deal stops all economic sanctions against Iran BEFORE any verification of Iranian trustworthiness proceeds which includes releasing hundreds of billions of dollars confiscated due to previous sanction violations by Iran.
For clarity’s sake then, Iran can develop weaponry systems, continue to supply Islamic terrorists with weapons and plan Israel’s destruction pertaining to the death to America and death to Israel rhetoric that Obama dismisses as playing politics to the Iranian Twelver constituents who believe their Hidden 12th Imam will emerge to cause global chaos ushering in a Shi’ite-Islamic domination of planet earth.
The Obama supporters (including BHO) are planting the seeds of fear that the only alternative to the best deal that can be arrived at with Iran is war. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that war with Iran in some form or another is inevitable. So is it better to engage in a military action now in which Iran can only respond with conventional weapons now better than a nuclear war later in which many more lives perish including creating inhabitable land due to radiation?
Also the Obama international cohorts seem to indicate they are going through with sanction lifting against Iran whether Congress thwarts Obama or not. Iran Nuke Deal supporters claim that European abandonment to economics and oil benefits Iran who continue to enrich uranium without a deal thus producing a nuke weapon. So again, is a conventional war in the present favorable or a nuke war in the future which includes psycho-Iranians that have a death culture? That death culture means the Cold War adage that prevented an American vs. a Sino-Soviet nuclear war via the military theory of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) will not stop Iran.
Iran is not a secular nation that reasons in geopolitics in the same way that Western Nations and global economic minded despotic nations like Russia and China would reason even today. As far as Twelver-Shi’ites are concerned a MAD scenario will simply bring a global Islamic era under Allah quicker.
For all the bad things Iran Nuke Deal supports believe will read this Foreign Policy essay by Suzanne Nossel: “This Is What Will Happen if Congress Blows Up the Iran Nuclear Deal: If the naysayers manage to blow up the newly minted agreement, it will be a disaster for the United States — and will only push Iran closer to the bomb.” –July 30, 2015
I know I’m just a small time Okie blogger, but sure seems a “NO” to the Iran Nuke Deal means bad consequences now. AGAIN I’m here to tell you a “YES” to the Iran Nuke Deal means WORSE consequences in our future. AND if Iran proves untrustworthy as I suspect, those WORSE consequences will arrive sooner rather than later.

I believe Norman Podhoretz sums up the reality of the Iran Nuke Deal in the last paragraph of his July 28 Wall Street Journal editorial: “Israel’s Choice: Conventional War Now, or Nuclear War Later”.
The brutal truth is that the actual alternatives before us are not Mr. Obama’s deal or war. They are conventional war now or nuclear war later. John Kerry recently declared that Israel would be making a “huge mistake” to take military action against Iran. But Mr. Kerry, as usual, is spectacularly wrong. Israel would not be making a mistake at all, let alone a huge one. On the contrary, it would actually be sparing itself—and the rest of the world—a nuclear conflagration in the not too distant future. (Israel’s Choice: Conventional War Now, or Nuclear War Later; By Norman Podhoretz; WSJ; 7/28/15)
The best thing for the U.S. to do would be to back Israeli military action against Iranian nuke sites. When Iran counterattacks Israel, then would be a good time to demonstrate to Israel and other nominal Middle East allies that we protect our allies and nail Iran from all sides without necessarily planning an invasion. Incapacitating Iran’s infrastructure will cause Iran to run out of retaliatory options soon enough. AND thank god, a military strike now means no nuke WMD future options for Iran.
