Even the Washington Post noticed that the ‘fact sheet’ put out by the White House was a trifle economical with the actualité. In particular, what it omitted from this deal that was supposed to limit Iranian uranium enrichment was that
‘the United States and its partners have already agreed that Iranian enrichment activity will continue indefinitely.’
Which is kind of what the Iranians have been saying the agreement said. It comes to something when the slippery Iranian regime is more reliable in reporting the facts than is the American Presidency.
Even more significant was the anticipated ‘sunset clause’ in the comprehensive agreement, which would mean that
‘Iran thus could look forward to a time when there would be no sanctions and no special restrictions on its nuclear capacity; it could install an unlimited number of centrifuges and produce plutonium without violating any international accord.’
In other words, this is an agreement which accepts that Iran will eventually get nuclear weapons – and offers sanctions relief to show the Iran regime the good faith of the west in doing nothing to stop it, by using the global muscle of corporations slavering at the mega-bucks now due to come their way from the Iranian terror state.
Despite the fact that the ludicrous façade of the Geneva deal is explicitly crumbling by the day, this will make no difference to Obama. He intends that nothing – but nothing – will stop him from appeasing Iran and protecting it from military attack aimed at thwarting its psychotic aims. He clearly decided long ago that the big danger was not nuclear weapons in the hands of the world’s principal terrorist regime which is pledged to make war on the west. No, the big danger was that the country Iran has repeatedly singled out for total annihilation, Israel, might bomb its nuclear sites in order to prevent a second genocide of the Jews.
And so the United States of America finds itself with a new best friend in the most deadly enemy of the west, treating instead its erstwhile allies (also Iran’s putative victims) as the enemy. A new world order is being created, with a deadly enemy of civilization being allowed to develop nuclear weapons at its leisure, an arms race amongst some of the most unstable and anti-west countries on earth, and with the prospect of a nuclear Armageddon now immeasurably and horrifyingly increased. This is what the President of the United States will have brought about – unless Congress finds the wherewithal to stop him.
Who can be surprised? We may not have known until last week about the back-channel negotiations being conducted with Iran by the Obama administration for heaven knows how long. There are reports that Obama’s last-minute decision not to bomb Syria arose from these secret Iranian negotiations. There is also renewed speculation that the Obama administration may have alerted the Iranian regime to the cyber-attacks on its computer networks.
Whatever the truth of these claims, Obama’s agenda has been clear from the start. To those like myself who warned about Obama from the moment he became a candidate for the US Presidency, it was clear that here was a man who believed that America was the world’s principal rogue state which needed to be shackled, and that its ‘victims’ – Third World tyrannies and enemies of the west – needed to be empowered to even up the score. As for Israel, well, these whinging Jews always behaved as if they were the only victims in the world, and if Israel was destroyed it would be all its own fault anyway.
But let’s get this in perspective. UK media pin-up Rouhani is now starring in a music video which is said to mimic an Obama campaign production.
