Make no mistake about it, President Obama is going to sign a deal — any deal — with the genocidal mullahs of Iran. His threats to walk away from a bad deal are as meaningful as his red line in Syria.
The only question is: Will Israel attack before Obama exits or wait to see what the next administration brings?
The problem is that Hillary Clinton’s path to the White House is easy to imagine in terms of the Electoral College. Starting out with New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and California are a huge advantage. For the Republicans, the path to victory is far more difficult. And no one should imagine that Hillary will be any better than Obama. The Democrat party is hard left ideologically, which means appeasement to America’s IslamoNazi enemies and daylight with our freedom-loving friends.
Charles Krauthammer explains why this deal is such a disaster.
The devil is not in the details. It’s in the entire conception of the Iran deal, animated by President Obama’s fantastical belief that he, uniquely, could achieve detente with a fanatical Islamist regime whose foundational purpose is to cleanse the Middle East of the poisonous corruption of American power and influence.
In pursuit of his desire to make the Islamic Republic into an accepted, normalized “successful regional power,” Obama decided to take over the nuclear negotiations. At the time, Tehran was reeling — the rial plunging, inflation skyrocketing, the economy contracting — under a regime of international sanctions painstakingly constructed over a decade.
Then, instead of welcoming Congress’ attempt to tighten sanctions to increase the pressure on the mullahs, Obama began the negotiations by loosening sanctions, injecting billions into the Iranian economy (which began growing again in 2014) and conceding in advance an Iranian right to enrich uranium.
It’s been downhill ever since. Desperate for a legacy deal, Obama has played the supplicant, abandoning every red line his administration had declared essential to any acceptable deal.
