The brilliant Dennis Prager has a wonderful new video up at Prager University explaining why the Iran Nuclear Deal is such a loser. Here is the “course” description from Prager’s YouTube page:
Is the nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran a good or bad deal? Would it be harder or easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Would it make Iran and its terror proxies stronger or weaker? Should the U.S. Congress support or defeat the deal? Dennis Prager answers these questions and more.
It basically comes down to this – in attempting to appease Iran, President Obama has just become our modern era’s Neville Chamberlain and given one of the world’s most evil regimes money, breathing room, and perhaps even a nuclear weapon.
Below is the crux of Prager’s argument.
The Neville Chamberlains of 2015 defend the agreement with Iran on two grounds — that the only alternative is war and that this agreement has the capacity to bring Iran into the “community of nations.”
The war argument is a falsehood. For three reasons.
First, the alternative to this agreement was continuing and tightening the sanctions that were weakening the Iranian regime and greatly diminishing its ability to fund terror groups around the world. Second, because the agreement so strengthens Iran, it makes war far more likely. When evil, expansionist regimes get richer, they don’t spend their wealth on building new hospitals. They expand. Third, Iran has been at war with America for decades.
And whoever believes that the agreement will bring Iran into the “community of nations” betrays a breath-taking ignorance of the Iranian regime.
The Iranian regime is composed of religious fanatics who are morally indistinguishable from ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and all the other mass murdering Islamist movements.
The Iranian regime has executed more people than any country except China and killed more than 6,000 Iranians just for being homosexual. A woman in Iran is not allowed to leave the country without the permission of her husband.
The Iranian regime repeatedly calls for the extermination of Israel. No other country in the world is committed to annihilating another country.
Iran is already the world’s greatest funder of terror organizations. Imagine what it will do with another 150 billion dollars. Imagine what it will do with the removal of the current weapons and missile embargo. Imagine what it will do with its intact nuclear infrastructure. This deal allows all three.
Very few people have a chance to do something about the greatest evil of their time. When it votes on this agreement the American Congress has that chance.
