THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES, FRANCE, ENGLAND AND GERMANY ARE EMBRACING EVIL- SERIOUSLY COMPROMISING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY - AND BETRAYING OUR DEEPEST HELD VALUES
PLEASE SPEAK UP NOW -
STOP IRAN NOW - February 19, 2022
It is important to draw your attention to a previous blog in which United Against a Nuclear Iran - a bipartisan group of foreign policy experts led by Joseph Lieberman former Democratic senator and Vice Presidential candidate - explain why the Iran Deal of 2015 (the "JCPOA") is fundamentally flawed and paves Iran's path to nuclear weapons.
These distinguished and respected bipartisan group of foreign policy and military experts set forth recommendations for achieving a "longer and stronger deal' which would truly prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and deter Iran's terrorism, mayhem and murder rather than financing it.
From the details that are leaking out it appears that none of the recommendations provided by United Against a Nuclear Iran are on the table in Vienna - and that the P5+1 are once again turning a blind eye to Iran's atrocities. There is every indication that the Biden Administration and the governments of England, France and Germany are on the verge of a dangerous surrender:
The deal fails to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons in the long term and weakens restrictions on Iran’s ballistic-missile program and conventional-arms transfers.
The JCPOA does not require Iran to submit to “anytime, anywhere” IAEA inspections of facilities and military sites where nuclear activities are suspected to have occurred. Instead, Iran, a serial cheater on its nuclear and other international obligations, can delay inspections of such facilities for up to 24 days, giving Iran precious time to cover up evidence of covert nuclear activities.
The IAEA did conclude that Iran was actively designing a nuclear weapon through at least 2009. However, Iran’s lack of cooperation with the IAEA probe makes it impossible to verify if Tehran halted all such efforts. Consequently, the international community has an incomplete picture of Iran’s nuclear program, making it impossible to establish a baseline to guide future inspections and verification.
The distinguished experts at UANI Have set forth what must be included in a deal to truly prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and to thwart its murder, mayhem and nefarious aspirations (apparently none of these are included in the current deal, except perhaps the release of hostages):
No re-entry into the JCPOA along previous parameters.
Sanctions relief should not be provided in exchange for mere negotiations.
We must return to the principle of zero enrichment or reprocessing, or else we risk a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
We must insist on full inspections and verification.
We must resolve the PMD file.
Iran's unacceptable non-nuclear behavior must be addressed in parallel to the new agreement if it is to have a chance to succeed.
Iran policy should once again be conducted in a bipartisan manner.
Iran policy must be conducted in consultation with U.S. regional allies and partners most threatened by Tehran's malign behavior.
All hostages should be released before any deal is concluded
We are asking all people of goodwill to help us spread truth and inspire action at thios defining moment. Please share these facts generously. Please call the White House and the State Department and urge them not to enter in to this weak "deal". Please call your United States Senators and Representative and urge them to speak up now.
