This Meme on the Iran Nuclear Deal is Going Crazy VIRAL [Meme]
It seems to me inevitable that, given the obvious flaws in the Obama administration’s nuclear deal, Iran will obtain nuclear weapons (barring outside military intervention) at roughly the time of its choosing with or without the deal. It also seems clear that, with or without this deal, the international sanctions regime will largely collapse, thanks to President Obama’s decisions first to negotiate with Iran and second to loosen sanctions before a real agreement was reached.
What difference, then, will Obama’s deal make?
The administration hopes that the deal will thaw U.S. relations with the mullahs’ regime and usher in an age of strategic cooperation between Washington and Tehran. This was the carrot the regime kept dangling in front of Obama, even as its backers in the street chanted “Death to America.”Obama’s hope of aid and comfort from the mullahs strikes me as a pipe dream. What interest does Iran have in selling out the anti-U.S. forces, including terrorists, that do its bidding so effectively throughout the Middle East? None. It backed these forces during the age of sanctions and will certainly do so once U.S. and other foreign money pours in.
When it comes to ISIS, some U.S.-Iranian cooperation is possible, but only to the extent that it furthers Iran’s foreign policy objectives. To that extent, the cooperation would have occurred anyway. Iran will take on ISIS with precisely the amount of vigor it deems appropriate to serve Iran’s interests. This is true with or without Obama’s deal.
There is, then, no likely upside to Obama’s deal.
