Evil Iran Nuke Deal


Intro to Clarion Project & Krauthammer on Iran

Edited by John R. Houk

July 3, 2015

Obama’s intention to make a deal at any cost with the crazies of Iran, who constantly call for America’s and Israel’s destruction, will lead to a nuclear war. I found a Charles Krauthammer post at The Telegraph replicating a Washington Post release castigating President Barack Hussein Obama’s idiotic justifications to flush American National Security down the tube and threaten the very existence of Israel.

Before I highlight the very credible thoughts of Charles Krauthammer, I’m going to share an email the Clarion Project that is promoting the 7th short video of the real info on a dark Iran agenda via their nukes. This video is a part of an Iran series by the Clarendon Project.

Over 1.1 million people have now seen our Iran short films and over 40,000 letters have been sent to Congress!

We are excited to present the 7th and final film in our Iran film series, The World Stayed Silent.

We live in an era when once again the world faces a new destructive force. Iran seeks nuclear weapons while its leadership calls for the destruction of Israel.

The world stood silently by while millions of Jews were slaughtered in Europe. Now, more than ever, with the nuclear deal deadline looming, is the time to speak out against Iran and its destructive ambitions towards the US and Israel.

Please share this film with all your email and social networks.

See all the films in our Iran short film series, visit http://iran.clarionproject.org/iran_film_series/. When the Jews were being slaughtered in the holocaust the world remained silent. Today Iran repeatedly calls for the destruction of Israel and attacks, through its proxy terrorist groups, Jewish and Israeli civilians around the world. If Iran gets the nuclear bomb will the world stay silent again?

Thank you for your continued support.

Iran nuclear deal: The worst agreement in US diplomatic history

Barack Obama and John Kerry are desperate for a deal with Iran. But at what cost?

By Charles Krauthammer

12:34PM BST 03 Jul 2015

The Telegraph

The devil is not in the details. It’s in the entire conception of the Iran deal, animated by President Obama’s fantastical belief that he, uniquely, could achieve détente with a fanatical Islamist regime whose foundational purpose is to cleanse the Middle East of the poisonous corruption of American power and influence.

In pursuit of his desire to make the Islamic Republic into an accepted, normalised “successful regional power,” Obama decided to take over the nuclear negotiations. At the time, Tehran was reeling – the rial plunging, inflation skyrocketing, the economy contracting – under a regime of international sanctions painstakingly constructed over a decade.

Then, instead of welcoming Congress’ attempt to tighten sanctions to increase the pressure on the mullahs, Obama began the negotiations by loosening sanctions, injecting billions into the Iranian economy (which began growing again in 2014) and conceding in advance an Iranian right to enrich uranium.

VIDEO: An Iran Nuclear Deal: Why it Matters

It’s been downhill ever since. Desperate for a legacy deal, Obama has played the supplicant, abandoning every red line his administration had declared essential to any acceptable deal.

Inspections

They were to be anywhere, anytime, unimpeded. Now? Total cave. Unfettered access has become “managed access.” Nuclear inspectors will have to negotiate and receive Iranian approval for inspections. Which allows them denial and/or crucial delay for concealing any clandestine activities.

To give a flavour of the degree of our capitulation, the administration played Iran’s lawyer on this one, explaining that, after all, “the United States of America wouldn’t allow anybody to get into every military site, so that’s not appropriate.” Apart from the absurdity of morally equating America with the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism, if we were going to parrot the Iranian position, why wait 19 months to do so – after repeatedly insisting on free access as essential to any inspection regime?

Coming clean on past nuclear activity

The current interim agreement that governed the last 19 months of negotiation required Iran to do exactly that. Tehran has offered nothing. The administration had insisted that this accounting was essential because how can you verify future illegal advances in Iran’s nuclear program if you have no baseline?

After continually demanding access to their scientists, plans and weaponisation facilities, Secretary of State John Kerry two weeks ago airily dismissed the need, saying he is focused on the future, “not fixated” on the past. And that we have “absolute knowledge” of the Iranian program anyway – a whopper that his staffers had to spend days walking back.

Not to worry, we are told. The accounting will be done after the final deal is signed. Which is ridiculous. If the Iranians haven’t budged on disclosing previous work under the current sanctions regime, by what logic will they comply after sanctions are lifted?

Sanctions relief

These were to be gradual and staged as the International Atomic Energy Agency certified Iranian compliance over time. Now we’re going to be releasing up to $150 billion as an upfront signing bonus. That’s 25 times the annual budget of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Enough to fuel a generation of intensified Iranian aggression from Yemen to Lebanon to Bahrain.

Yet three months ago, Obama expressed nonchalance about immediate sanctions relief. It’s not the issue, he said. The real issue is “snapback” sanctions to be reimposed if Iran is found in violation.

Good grief. Iran won’t be found in violation. The inspection regime is laughable and the bureaucratic procedures endless. Moreover, does anyone imagine that Russia and China will reimpose sanctions? Or that the myriad European businesses preparing to join the Iranian gold rush the day the deal is signed will simply turn around and go home?

Non-nuclear-related sanctions

The administration insisted that the nuclear talks would not affect separate sanctions imposed because of Iranian aggression and terrorism. That was then. The administration is now leaking that everything will be lifted.

Taken together, the catalogue of capitulations is breathtaking: spot inspections, disclosure of previous nuclear activity, gradual sanctions relief, retention of non-nuclear sanctions.

What’s left? A surrender document of the kind offered by defeated nations suing for peace. Consider: The strongest military and economic power on earth, backed by the five other major powers, armed with what had been a crushing sanctions regime, is about to sign the worst international agreement in American diplomatic history.

How did it come to this? With every concession, Obama and Kerry made clear they were desperate for a deal.

And they will get it. Obama will get his “legacy.” Kerry will get his Nobel. And Iran will get the bomb.

A Very Bad Deal

I have just discovered the Obama Administration negotiating team (five permanent U.N. Security Council members – United States, Britain, France, Russia, China – plus Germany) has hammered out a deal that indeed favors Iran. The favor is Iran agrees to lower its uranium enrichment process by 5% while the UN led sanctions are reduced to the point that the USA promises to give Iran $7 BILLION in sanction relief. The whole deal is based on an absolute trust that Iran will honor its part of the deal. I guess that will work out just like trustworthy North Korea promised no nuke weaponization and Hitler promised Chamberlain no more aggressive invasions.

A Very Bad Deal

This morning in Geneva, the United States and other world powers agreed to a deal with the radical mullahs in Iran over their nuclear program. What details have been released indicate it is a very bad deal for the United States and can be interpreted as rewarding Iran for its decades of radicalism and terror.

Even more important, Obama and Kerry seem to naively believe Iran can be trusted. What gives them that idea? Iran has been lying and terrorizing the west for over 30 years. Nothing has changed. In fact, the United States went down this path with North Korea and it lead directly to its getting nuclear weapons. Read this article which sheds more light on the Iran deal.

A Bad and Morally Indefensible Deal (NationalReview.com)

By Jack David, November 24, 2013 1:00 AM

The announcement that the P-5+1 (the five U.N. Security Council members plus Germany) reached a nuclear deal with Iran has just been made. A few details of the deal have been announced and there likely will be others. But what has been reported so far is sufficient to conclude, as Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said of the draft deal reported two weeks ago, that “this is a very, very bad deal.”

The Iranian “concessions” thus far announced are unimpressive: Iran will stop enriching uranium beyond 5 percent; it will install no additional centrifuges; it will convert the 100 pounds or so of 20 percent enriched uranium which quickly can be converted to weapons-grade uranium to something harder to convert to weapons-grade uranium. Iran has not agreed to dismantle any of the thousands of centrifuges it has installed and continues to operate; to send any of its 20 percent enriched uranium out of the country; to close the nuclear facilities which will soon provide it with plutonium with which to make nuclear weapons; to stop its testing of long-range missiles; or to cease its support of terrorist activities by Hezbollah and others.

The United States has reportedly agreed to provide Iran with $7 billion in sanctions relief. This relief doubtless will help Iran in many ways, not least the “right” to continue the dangerous nuclear-weapons development and terrorist-support activities which it has long maintained. It will not be in the least surprising, as more details of the deal are announced, to learn of other benefits provided to Iran to induce it to agree . . . to something – anything.

The U.S., by pressing forward with this very, very bad deal has further eroded its dwindling international credibility. No country in the Middle East will perceive U.S. agreement to this deal as anything but further evidence of its weakness, further evidence that the U.S. is content to undermine its historical alliances, expressions to the contrary notwithstanding.

In defending the deal, the United States (and perhaps others among its P-5+1 partners) doubtless will point to the fact that it is only an interim step and that Iran has agreed to allow International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors to visit its still-operating facilities. Given Iran’s long history of preventing IAEA inspectors to do their jobs and its long history of flouting its obligations regarding its nuclear program, the value of this Iranian promise should be discounted to zero.

In a speech in Tehran this past week to a crowd of thousands that was was broadcast live, Iranian Supreme leader Khamenei attacked the U.S., France, and Israel, saying that “Zionist officials cannot be called humans, they are like animals,” that “the Israeli regime is doomed to failure and annihilation,” that the “Zionist regime” is the “rabid dog of the region.”

The deal the U.S. and its partners just struck with Iran is a “very, very bad deal” as a practical and a political matter. In the context of Khamenei’s contemporaneous statements and the background of so many other statements of similar stripe, it is also morally indefensible.

Steel is Turkey’s latest helping hand to Iran


Turkey & Iran Flag

After writing about war and weaponry focused on Iran and Israel this story about Turkey providing steel and banking services to Iran is a demonstration of why Iran will never bend to sanctions. It is also a demonstration that in the war scenarios of WWIII quite probably align Turkey with Iran.

Will BHO Continue Useless Sanctions Against Iran?


Iran Missile with wmd potential

Iran has hit the news again asserting they shot down an unmanned drone over Iran. The news speculation is that the unmanned drone may have been part of the unmanned stealth weapons. America denies that it was such a weapon like the RQ-170 Sentinel and if there was a drone near the Iran-Afghan border it was a reconnaissance drone that was retrieved after a malfunction.

 

Militaries that are hostile to each have the habit of obfuscating the truth or simply just downright lying. The question is if Iran did shoot down a RQ-170 Sentinel down, did Iran do so over Iran or Afghanistan. If the drone was shot down over Iran, frankly as much as I dislike Iran the case would be it was over sovereign territory. On the other hand if Iran attempted to shoot down any kind of American drone over Afghanistan then Iran stepped another nation’s sovereign territory. And if that is the case, Iran engaged America in military action perhaps to steal the RQ-170 Sentinel technology for itself or to sell to a more scientific capable nation.

 

This is once again one-upmanship of hostility toward the USA and Western nations (which would include Israel). Also since it has become public knowledge that Iran now has the nuke capability to build a nuclear armed weapon, Western nations must get behind America in placing extreme pressure on Iran.

 

If that pressure includes some Israeli sortie raids over Iran, America must stand behind Israel for whatever action Iran may initiate against Israel. Standing behind Israel means support and assistance if Iran unleashes Hezbollah or Hamas or both against Israel as Iranian proxies.

 

I am not a big fan of useless sanctions that America has used against Iran for decades; however this is one sanction that will really bite Iran in the butt. That sanction is against Iran’s central bank which would extremely hinder Iran’s ability to conduct international business deals and transactions.

 

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) sent a letter to President Barack Hussein Obama to have the cajones to take the step of sanctions on Iran’s central bank. Below is the email UANI sent to me.

In Letter to White House, UANI Calls on President Obama to Support Sanctions Against Iran’s Central Bank

New York, NY – On Monday, United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) wrote to President Barack Obama, and called on him to support sanctions against Iran’s Central Bank.

 

The Obama administration has been resisting such sanctions, even though all 100 members of the U.S. Senate voted last week to add them by amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.

 

In a Monday letter to President Obama, UANI President, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, wrote:

 

… UANI is concerned about recent reports that your administration is opposed to placing comprehensive, robust sanctions against the regime, including against Bank Markazi, Iran’s central bank.  As you are aware, such action has broad support as demonstrated most recently by the unanimous passage in the Senate of an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (“NDAA”), requiring sanctions on financial institutions that do business with Bank Markazi. This amendment followed an earlier letter you received from 92 Senators urging similar action. Bank Markazi is the financial nerve center of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (“IRGC”), the entity directly responsible for Iran’s proliferation procurement efforts and sponsorship of terrorist activities.  There is perhaps no other entity than Bank Markazi which, if sanctioned, would put substantive pressure on the Iranian regime to enter into meaningful negotiations.

 

Any short-term economic disruption that may result from sanctioning Bank Markazi pales in comparison to the disruption that will be unleashed should Iran acquire a nuclear weapon.  While hopefully the United States can persuade other members of the international community to support an imposition of sanctions against Bank Markazi, the imposition of even unilateral sanctions would severely hamper Bank Markazi, and by consequence the IRGC, from operating internationally.

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) is a program of the American Coalition Against Nuclear Iran, Inc., a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

 
The prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran should concern every American and be unacceptable to the community of nations. Since 1979 the Iranian regime, most recently under President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s leadership, has demonstrated increasingly threatening behavior and rhetoric toward the US and the West. Iran continues to defy the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the United Nations in their attempts to monitor its nuclear activities. A number of Arab states have warned that Iran’s development of nuclear weapons poses a threat to Middle East stability and could provoke a regional nuclear arms race. In short, the prospect of a nuclear armed Iran is a danger to world peace.

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) is a non-partisan, broad-based coalition that is united in a commitment to prevent Iran from fulfilling its ambition to become a regional super-power possessing nuclear weapons.  UANI is an issue-based coalition in which each coalition member will have its own interests as well as the collective goal of advancing an Iran free of nuclear weapons.

 

The Objectives of United Against a Nuclear Iran

 

1.   Inform the public about the nature of the Iranian regime, including its desire and intent to possess nuclear weapons, as well as Iran’s role as a state sponsor of global terrorism, and a major violator of human rights at home and abroad;

 

2.   Heighten awareness nationally and internationally about the danger that a nuclear armed Iran poses to the region and the world;

 

3.   Mobilize public support, utilize media outreach, and persuade our elected leaders to voice a robust and united American opposition to a nuclear Iran;

 

4.   Lay the groundwork for effective US policies in coordination with European and other allies;

 

5.   Persuade the regime in Tehran to desist from its quest for nuclear weapons, while striving not to punish the Iranian people, and;

 

6.   Promote efforts that focus on vigorous national and international, social, economic, political and diplomatic measures.

 

UANI is led by an advisory board of outstanding national figures representing all sectors of our country.
