TIANJIN PORT DISASTER-THE WORST EVER? NOT YET, NOT BY A LONG SHOT »« IAEA DIR.-GRL. AMANO FLOPS HIS REPORT ON IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL TO USA SENATE

THE “IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL” IS AT BEST “KICKING THE CAN DOWN THE ROAD”, AND NOT WISE

14 Aug 2015

Pres. Barrack. Obama said on 10 Aug 2115, that a15-year delay in Iran’s (nuclear weapons) capabilities is one of the virtues of the agreement that US, and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany (the P5+1) tentatively signed with Iran in July 2015 Now Pres. Obama says: “If in fact the breakout (?) times now are a few months, and we’re able to push that breakout time out to a year so, that we have more time and space to see whether or not Iran is cheating on an (is there more than one ?) agreement, kicking out inspectors, going for a nuclear weapon; if the breakout time is extended for 15 years and then it goes back to where it is right now, why is that a bad deal?” .

WELL…Mr. President, We are not sure we understand how that could be a “Good Deal”. Suppose that We lift the sanctions, on a gamble that Iran will comply with “The Deal” (By the way?, is this really a Memorandum of Understanding MOA, AN International Treaty, or what is it.); Then if Iran fails to comply with The Deal, in a week , or a month, or a year (as happened to British PM Neville Chamberlain in 1938 when He and Hitler signed a Peace treaty, and Germany began his expansionist campaign a week later) what recourse do we have?. We had refrained from commenting on The Deal because as even our Senators have lamented, we are not privy to many important details; particularly with regard to Iran’s nuclear weapon development, past and present. Even so…

THIS IS NOT A GOOD DEAL Our common sense/wisdom vis-a vis past Iranian/USA relations give us cause to  believe that given the fact that Iranian Ayatollahs (past and present), have expressed deep distrust toward the USA, and acted in nefarious/hostile ways toward us; How can we trust a government whose Islamic Leaders distrust us?- NO WAY! Agreements must be made in good faith between/among mutually trusting nations. Mullahs, have traditionally set themselves above and apart from their secular governments, but remain highly in influential in their country’s political affairs. They have traditionally basked in their power/Influence. The day when such governments become truly democratic, and disregard the political opinion of their Clergy, Monarchs, Princes, etc., will be a happy day for humanity. I know I sound like France’s Voltaire in my philosophy, but so does the USA Constitution and democracy – even with all its faults. Voltaire too, was intensely disliked by the French Monarchy, but that soon come to an abrupt end.

We  further believe that our diplomats should clearly explain to Iran the consequences of our even knowing they have deliverable nuclear weapons, and the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD).  All Nuclear bomb possessing countries have come to recognize that having them is really an expensive impediment to their governance/ internal security.

NOTE: We expressed our concerns on this issue in the previous article as “UPDATE 2, but given its transcendence, decided to publish it as a separate post.
