President Obama's Delaying Iran From a Nuclear Warhead Dilemma
If the American administration's only game plan is to delay Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, then what is the point of negotiating, missing deadlines, extending deadlines etc.? The bottom line of this strategy, at some point in time, is that Iran will get what they always intended since 2010- a nuclear bomb or bombs. Originally, when these negotiations began, the purpose is to stop and prevent Iran from doing this, but as time went on, Obama's crew continued the pathetic appeasement in negotiations as Iran made it difficult and the over eagerness to get a deal is so evident, Iran actually has the upper hand.
No wonder the American-Israeli relations has bombed over this matter and the Iranians are playing this also. Even in the appeasement process, the original plan was to delay Iran from getting a bomb for 20 years, the current position for the US is now 10 years! The new negotiations also allow Iran to use more and more of their centrifuges over time to enrich uranium, this will shorten their time needed to create nuclear fuel.
Just what is the USA and the world getting out of this deal? Just a delay of Iran getting a bomb to put on top of their missiles to threaten many countries beside Israel. So, we get a delay of nuclear war, that is it. Israeli officials are fuming over such a nonsensical deal, as are many U.S. congressmen. In fact, Israel has already warned that such a deal will not stand with them and they would end it, hinting at Israeli military action. Meanwhile, Iranian technology is trying to increase the capability of their 2000 centrifuges and even though the West is aware of this, nothing in the deal stops this. This would allow, if achieved, for Iran to enrich fuel for a bomb in less than year.
The U.S. Congress wants to impose more sanctions on Iran, which brought Iran to the table in the first place. Any deal reached, does not need congressional approval at all, Obama and bypass this need because it is not a treaty, although, Congress would have to vote to lift existing sanctions. So, this could backfire- a deal happens, yet, Congress refuses to lift sanctions. This would have Iran state, then, there is no deal! A deal could occur and yet Congress votes to increase sanctions anyway. Many in Congress are not happy about how desperate the USA is to get a deal, a phony deal that ONLY delays Iran's nuclear weapon ambitions.
Meanwhile, Russia is planning to sell Iran the Antey 2500 antiballistic missile system. This is a mobile surface to air system that can destroy aircraft and ballistic missiles at a range of 125 miles. Russia is having a booming weapon sales in the Middle East since 2013, they have sold over $13 billion worth.
