The drama over Iran can be a confusing situation. So, let’s make it easy for everyone. This nation hates the U.S., our allies, and Israel—the only true democracy in the Middle East. Iran has spent billions funding terrorists who have wreaked havoc all over the world. And for years, they have been trying to make nuclear weapons, which they would immediately use on Israel. Obama made a “deal” with them, that would lift sanctions from Iran if they promised not to make nukes.
Trump proved they never followed the deal. He tore it up and hammered Iran with painful sanctions. Then Biden became “president.” This walking joke of a man signaled he would lift sanctions on Iran, for no discernable reason. His “crack” team from the State Department (who botched the Afghanistan evacuation), has been giving up concession after concession to the terrorist-loving nation. A deal hasn’t even been struck, but one CIA operative warns, it’s already too late.
The U.S. likely missed its opportunity to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons without using military force, according to a former CIA operative.
Reuel Marc Gerecht, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the John Solomon Reports podcast that, given the advanced state of Iran’s nuclear program, Washington will ultimately need to choose between containing a nuclear-armed Iran and taking military action to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran…
Gerecht added that America’s last best chance to strike Iran was when Donald Trump was president, echoing a point he made in a recent op-ed.
“Before January 2021, anti-deal Republicans who believe an Iranian nuke is simply unacceptable should have been encouraging Trump to bomb Iran’s program,” he wrote, referring to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. “That was the only approach that offered any chance of restraining Tehran’s ambitions. Arms control always had a negligible chance of success with an oil-rich, exuberantly mendacious, revolutionary Islamic state.” [Source: Just the News]
Gerecht is echoing sentiments shared by lawmakers, military officials, and leaders around the world. We’ve missed our window to prevent Iran from getting nukes. And now, the only way to stop them is by some form of military intervention. Which, of course, could lead to larger problems. The former CIA agent explained the last best chance we had was under President Trump, who had successfully contained Iran during his administration.
Trump had killed Iran’s top military leaders, struck their proxies in Syria, and straggled their chances at selling oil. Had Trump remained in office, he might have taken bolder steps to bomb their nuclear program, as Gerecht recommended. Or, at least, continue to put pressure on the country. But Joe Biden, for some unknown reason, has been increasingly accommodating to Iran.
Even Russia and China (whose alliance with Iran is an open secret) have gloated at how poorly Biden’s negotiators had done. Iran stands to gain everything they want. No more sanctions, nukes, and nobody looking over their shoulder. Who knows what damage they might cause to the world?
