Almost 200 Retired Generals And Admirals Call On Congress To Reject Iran Deal

Unfortunately, it won’t stop the deal, because most Democrats are voting in lockstep with Obama, rather than the best interests of the United States, oh, and Senator Tom Cotton made it so that the deal doesn’t need Congressional approval.

(Washington Post) A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.

The letter is the latest in a blizzard of missives petitioning Congress either to support or oppose the agreement with Iran, which would lift sanctions if Iran pared back its nuclear program. Letters have come from ad hoc groupings of rabbis, nuclear scientists, arms-control and nonproliferation experts — and now, retired senior military officers, many of whom have worked in the White House during various administrations dating to the 1980s.

“The agreement will enable Iran to become far more dangerous, render the Mideast still more unstable and introduce new threats to American interests as well as our allies,” the letter states.

The letter goes on to say

The agreement as constructed does not “cut off every pathway” for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons. To the contrary, it actually provides Iran with a legitimate path to doing that simply by abiding by the deal. JCPOA allows all the infrastructure the Iranians need for a nuclear bomb to be preserved and enhanced. Notably, Iran is allowed to: continue to enrich uranium; develop and test advanced centrifuges; and continue work on its Arak heavy-water
plutonium reactor. Collectively, these concessions afford the Iranians, at worst, a ready breakout option and, at best, an incipient nuclear weapons capability a decade from now.

At the end of the day, every single result, good and bad, but, surely, mostly bad, will be laid at the feet of Obama, John Kerry, and the Democrat Party.

Of course, Liberals are asking “what’s the alternative?” How about a deal that permanently dismantles Iran’s nuclear weapons program, rather than kicking the can down the road? Was that not the point of the negotiations?
