Members of Congress are regularly asked to make serious decisions with far-reaching implications.
The Iranian regime should not doubt our capability and willingness to respond swiftly should they attempt to break out and develop a nuclear weapon.
Make no mistake, the Iranian Nuclear Deal is one of the most incompetently crafted agreements in the history of this country. The “Great Satan”, as America is labeled in Iran, appeasing the chief sponsor of world terrorism.
It would stop the president from lifting sanctions on Iran unless Tehran recognizes the state of Israel and releases Americans detained in Iran.
Blumenthal said the two will offer legislation to provide an effective way to put sanctions back into place if Iran cheats, ensure strict adherence to the agreement, and enhance security assistance to Israel, including new joint-training exercises and inviting Israeli pilots to train to fly long-range bombers.
The United Kingdom was among six countries that, in July, agreed to lift sanctions against Iran in exchange for checks on its nuclear programme. The prospect of Iran’s return to the export market has weighed on oil prices, down by nearly half in the past year, because the world is already grappling with a huge oversupply. “We want to bring these detainees and prisoners home as quickly as possible, and putting them in the middle of this political debate here I don’t believe is helpful at all”. “The idea that a nuclear Iran can be deterred is unrealistic”.
Remember that the ultimate nightmare scenario we faced in the 2000s was Iran, within reach of a nuclear weapon. It is not just about us.
He said: “I think a lot of people will feel very uneasy about the prospect of the United Kingdom unquestioningly building trade links with Iran”. Any deal must be verifiable, enforceable and accountable.
Nevertheless, they both support the president’s nuclear alliance with Iran. Iran also has to ship its stockpile of enriched uranium overseas, and comply with an worldwide Atomic Energy Agency investigation into its past nuclear weapons work.
I supported a series of bills to express disapproval of the agreement.
In so doing, American evangelicals will join our voice to other Christian leaders in the US who have spoken out in support of the Iran deal, as well as Christians and people of many faiths around the world who recognize that this deal is the surest and best way to keep Iran from getting a nuke. Many Assyrians from the valley have felt the impact of Iranian terrorism firsthand, losing their land, home and businesses, while their Christian relatives have been driven out of Iran.
Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress, having nearly exhausted legislative options for stopping the Iran nuclear deal, say they now may take their case to the courts.
Repeated calls to Joe Baldacci for comment on the Iranian inspection plan were not returned by air time.
As this Administration has said repeatedly, no deal is better than a bad deal. In their worldview, Iran is the United States and its allies’ eternal enemy, not too different from the Islamic State group or Al-Qaeda.
