There is a situation in the Middle East that sits squarely on the shoulders of President Obama right now.
And it’s getting worse.
You see, a few months ago Secretary of State John Kerry and President Obama sat down and struck a deal with the Iranians.
It was an awful deal on paper. The deal gave Iran a lot and the US got nothing. It also gave Iran the ability to enrich uranium. The deal took away the US’s ability to apply economic sanctions. It was all bark and no bite.
John Kerry and Obama are so proud of this deal. Obama probably feels like he has brought peace to the entire world. I mean, why not…. He received the Nobel peace Prize within a few months of being in office- he hadn’t even done anything yet at that point.
Since the deal was struck, Iran has already ignored the parameters of the rules that were set. Which has happened multiple times and Obama did nothing.
As far as Khamenei was concerned, Obama’s obvious anxiousness to keep the mullahs happy was all for show. He proclaimed: “The current U.S. government has breached the nuclear deal in many occasions.” In reality, Iran is the one breaching the agreement.
Recently, according to Reuters, the International Atomic Energy Agency revealed: exceeded a soft limit on sensitive material set under its nuclear deal with major powers. … [This is the] second time Tehran has surpassed the 130 metric tonne threshold for heavy water, a material used as a moderator in reactors like Iran’s unfinished one at Arak, since the deal was put in place in January.
In the last few weeks, Congress has authorized the extension of sanctions against Iran. Ayatollah Khamenei was not pleased. He warned America if sanctions were extended, the Iranian Republic would respond.
So now America is on the edge of a war with Iran, where they will bring the fight to us if we do not take it to them.
President-Elect Trump said, if he were elected President, he would rip up the Iran deal.
For Trump, the decision might be easy. He showed his colors during the campaign and when his’ opponents attacked, he punched back twice as hard.
For the country, it might be a little more difficult to get behind. We’ve been at war in the Middle East for 15 years. We’ve spent a Trillion dollars of treasure fighting “terror”.
We’re being attacked by ISIS!
And our ally in the Middle East was snubbed for years by Obama.
You have to understand all wars and battles are connected through Radical Islam.
The Iranian leadership isn’t saber-rattling because it makes them look big. They’re driven by a religious ideology that includes setting up a caliphate over the whole world.
They want to conquer us. They want to defeat “the Great Satan”.
Trump better be ready to make good on his promises. Otherwise Iran is going to make good on theirs’ to destroy Israel and America.
