Negotiate with Iran-Why?
With the potential devastation and catastrophic deaths a nuclear bomb can cause you would think the first question needed to be answered in the affirmative, is can Iran be trusted to keep an agreement? According to Iran’s track record, clearly the answer is no.
In May 2010 The Christian Science Monitor reported that Hillary Clinton, then secretary of state, said Iran had violated the UN’s NPT101 that they had signed.
A United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report said Iran has been pursuing nuclear weapons since before 2004, testing detonators and other components that have few uses other than for a nuclear bomb.
The IAEA outlined that despite sanctions, “Iran’s engineers have now fully fitted out the Fordo enrichment facility, and dug into a mountain near the holy city of Qom.”
As of Sept. 29, 2015, the Obama administration is closing the last remaining American uranium enrichment facility. Yet we are moving forward on a deal with Iran that permits the Islamic Republic to produce ongoing uranium enrichment.
On May 27, 2014, the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, vowed to destroy the U.S. He said promoting negotiations is treason.
I am confused. How can the U.S. negotiate with Iran when we know they are not trust worthy? Their history of repeat agreement violations, as a major financier of worldwide terrorism, as a self proclaimed enemy of America that seeks our destruction and death, proves we cannot trust them. And the icing on the cake is that we agreed to help protect their nuclear uranium program from sabotage.
