And all this time y'all thought I was exaggerating when I've repeatedly said that Barack Obama is gifting the mullahs with U.S. nuclear weapons:
The United States and other nations negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran are ready to offer high-tech reactors and other state-of-the-art equipment to Tehran if it agrees to crimp programs that can make atomic arms, according to a confidential document obtained Tuesday by the Associated Press. [emphasis added]
Which, don't forget, Tehran will not allow us to inspect or verify in the slightest.
The draft document — one of several technical appendices meant to accompany the main text of any deal — has dozens of bracketed text where disagreements remain. Technical cooperation is the least controversial issue at the talks, and the number of brackets suggest the sides have a ways to go not only on that topic but also more contentious disputes with little more than a week until the June 30th deadline for a deal. …
Which will be extended, as it always is.
The West has always held out the prospect of providing Iran peaceful nuclear technology....
Which, for them, there is no such thing.
....in the [over a] decade-long international diplomatic effort designed to reduce Tehran’s potential ability to make nuclear weapons. But the scope of the help now being offered in the draft may displease U.S. congressional critics who already argue that Washington has offered too many concessions at the negotiations.
"Concessions"? Concessions are limited ground yielded in one place in exchange for ground gained somewhere else. We're giving them everything they need to build a huge nuclear arsenal. That's not a "concession". It goes beyond "sellout". This is helping a regime whose core objective is "Death to America!" gain the capacity to carry out that threat years sooner than it could have on its own. We've gone from opposing Iranian nuclear weapons to containing a nuclear Iran to becoming their nuclear warhead supplier.
And all for two reasons: (1) to give Barack Obama his Neville Chamberlain "legacy" moment; and (2) to reduce American to the level of the rest of the world - if our enemies are merciful.
It won't cost The One anything; it will cost anywhere from a few hundred thousand to a few hundred million Americans (and all Israelis) their lives.
This goes beyond insanity. It almost goes beyond treason. And the only reason for that is because I don't know a stronger term for what Red Barry is doing to this country.
Yes, yes, I know, Bill Clinton did the same thing with North Korea twenty years ago, so there's horrible precedent for it. The difference is, while the NoKos are crazy enough to nuke us with our own nukes, what are blustering threats to Kim Jong-Un are sacred promises and religious doctrine to the mullahs. Killing America is, in their minds, an ironclad command of Allah himself.
And Barack Hussein Obama is literally helping them do it.
Exit question: Seriously, how is it any of us are still alive?
UPDATE: Even former Obamunists are finally growing alarmed:
A group of prominent American security advisers, including five with ties to President Barack Obama's first term, warned on Wednesday that a deal on curbing Iran's nuclear program was at risk of failing to provide adequate safeguards. In an open letter, the group of former U.S. officials and foreign policy experts cautioned that an Iran nuclear deal would "fall short of meeting the administration's own standard of a 'good' agreement" unless it included a tougher line on United Nations nuclear inspections and conditions for sanctions relief.
The release of the letter, which was signed by Dennis Ross, an adviser on Iran and the Middle East in Obama's first term, comes as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry prepares to fly to Vienna on Friday to join the talks.
Several of the senior officials told the New York Times that the was prompted by concern that Obama’s negotiators were headed toward concessions that would weaken international inspection of Iran’s facilities. They also feared that a deal in the works backs away from forcing Tehran to reveal its suspected past work on weapons while Iranian research and development that would put it on a course to resuming intensive production of nuclear fuel as soon as the accord expires.
"The public nature of the announcement by some of Mr. Obama’s best-known former advisers, all of whom had central roles in the diplomatic, intelligence and military efforts to counter Iran’s program, adds to the challenge facing" the administration as the negotiations head toward a deadline of next Tuesday, the Times wrote in its article.
