To the Editor:
President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry put the United States and other countries in jeopardy by entering into an agreement with Iran which temporarily curbs its nuclear armaments program. They have either been duped, or they are naïve or both. Both are more concerned about their legacies than the security of the world.
Iran said it will place its nuclear development program on hold and allow inspection of its facilities, but Iran has had time to disperse and hide its 50 nuclear facilities. Under the nuclear agreement, Iran can deny access by inspectors to undeclared sites, and then the inspection process goes before a number of committees for resolution, which can take close to a month. This is enough time for Iran to move the equipment and materials.
The agreement will allow lifting of economic sanctions, which will immediately release $150 billion and cumulative trillions in subsequent years. This money will allow Iran to purchase armaments, which will be used to continue the destabilization of Middle East countries and the ongoing sponsorship of Islamic terrorism in the world. And don’t forget, Iran hates the U.S.
The U.S. Congress should not approve this terrible agreement.
