Deal With Iran
President Obama has finally gotten a deal with Iran. “No deal means a greater chance of more war in the Middle East,” said Obama. “This deal is not built on trust. It is built on verification.”
U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement today after Secretary of State John Kerry announced a historic final agreement to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
“I look forward to robust hearings in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and, if this agreement is what the Administration says it is, it is a major, historic diplomatic breakthrough”.
While one of the worlds biggest warmonger, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is hyperventilating on TV at this writing. Huffington Post reports the following.
Benjamin Netanyahu Doesn’t Need To Read The Iran Deal To Know He Hates It
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared the historic nuclear agreement reached between Iran, the U.S., and five other world powers on Tuesday to be a catastrophe.
Netanyahu’s judgment of the 159-page agreement came before the public release of the text of the deal. He blamed the nuclear agreement on the willingness of the negotiators to reach a deal “at any cost,” a thinly veiled criticism of President Barack Obama, whom the Israeli premier has long sparred with on the topic of Iran’s nuclear program.
Joe Cirincione, PloughShares Fund President had a memorable statement about Netanyahu. “Well the prime minister is a terrific politician,” Cirincione said. “but he is a terrible nonproliferation expert. The overwhelming consensus of the nuclear policy experts indeed of the military and intelligent experts in Mr. Netanyahu’s own country is that this is a good deal.”
He went on to state that except from Israel and a couple other states, the world is in agreement that it is a good deal. Our allies are all on board.
