Obama said, “Today, that diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure – a future in which we can verify that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful, and that it cannot build a nuclear weapon.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. Obama spins such fantastical tales knowing that the politically driven media will call this crushing defeat one of “the most unlikely – and potentially most meaningful – foreign policy victories of his time in office.” So said USA Today.
We are paying $7-10 billion in jizya, the tribute that subject non-Muslims are to pay to Muslims according to Islamic law. Algemeiner reported that “the deal calls for Iran to halt key parts of its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief said to be valued at approximately $7 billion.”
The analogy between this and the Munich agreement is absolute: Neville Chamberlain hailed “Peace in Our Time” after making massive concessions to Hitler for nothing in return. This agreement is just as bad. Worse, perhaps. Imagine if Hitler had nukes. All Iran does is promise to limit centrifuge production and to hold off on the construction of a plutonium reactor, along with cutting back on enriching uranium for 20 percent by six months.
A promise? From Iran? History has shown us that not only are these promises worthless, they are a device to stall for time while exacting painful concessions from the West. Iranians will “cut your throat,” said Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz. They’re “known as great rug merchants, not for nothing.”
