DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE INHERITED A YEAR AGO ENORMOUS ECONOMIC LEVERAGE AND THE STRONGEST MILITARY IN THE WORLD DETAILS ARE NOW EMERGING THAT THE JOE BIDEN HAS CAPITULATED TO IRAN’S DEMANDS.
Profoundly disappointing news was conveyed in an outstanding article by Richard Goldberg yesterday - an article that must be read by every responsible citizen throughout America and around the world.
It was reported today that while "Iranian society is set to explode" Joe Biden has already removed some Iran sanctions imposed by Donald Trump, including unfreezing $29 billion in bank accounts overseas.
As Goldberg notes "The turnabout for Iran is breathtaking. A regime that was under more pressure one year ago than it was before the JCPOA is being handed better terms than it received under the prior deal. Despite being warned time and again to abandon its carrot-filled, stickless negotiating strategy, the Biden administration is poised to conclude an agreement precisely as bad as Biden’s critics predicted. "
That’s apparently why Richard Nephew, the second-ranking U.S. negotiator in Vienna —and a key player in negotiating the JCPOA in 2015—abandoned the talks late last year. It’s also likely what prompted Bob Menendez of New Jersey, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to take to the Senate floor this week to warn the administration against this kind of agreement.
As Goldberg explains
"under the 'deal' that is emerging the brutal, murderous theocratic regime may be allowed (i) to produce high-enriched uranium, stockpile more of that enriched uranium, advance its centrifuge program to hasten a future nuclear breakout; (ii) to accelerate its development of longer-range nuclear-capable missiles; and (ii) to stonewall the International Atomic Energy Agency’s investigation into undeclared nuclear sites and materials discovered over the last three years. In exchange, the United States would suspend terrorism and missile sanctions on Iran, not just nuclear sanctions—providing an economic bailout to Tehran while flooding the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps with cash."
He continued "what’s more, the new arrangement would preserve the sunset provisions from the JCPOA, which are now six years closer to taking effect than they were originally. The date for the expiration of the international arms embargo on Iran has already passed, the missile embargo expires next year, and the end of all enrichment restrictions is coming in the next few years. Those sunsets were established on condition that Iran complied with the terms of the JCPOA, yet the new deal apparently requires no such thing. That Iran could remain non-compliant with the JCPOA and keep the sunsets will be a significant policy question not just for Biden, but for U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who holds the power to trigger a 'snapback' of U.N. sanctions on Iran."
Biden’s weakness makes war inevitable while giving our enemies - (a brutal, terrorist tyranny) tens of billions of dollars and legitimizing the rapid advancement of their conventional and nuclear weapons program. He is enabling the regime to cross red lines of Israel and our other allies in the region which face existential threats.
Biden completely ignores Iran’s atrocities.
Biden completely ignores Iran’s deception and intransigence.
Biden completely ignores the cries of Iran’s hundreds of thousands of victims inside Iran, throughout the Middle East and around the world.
Biden ignores the Iranian regime's vitriolic antisemitism, Holocaust denial and aggressive pursuit of its oft-stated goal of "wiping Israel off the map"
Biden is enabling terrorism to go nuclear.
Biden is endangering all of us and betraying our most cherished values.
He is legitimizing, enriching and emboldening the greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the world which unites its followers to chants of “death to America” while aggressively pursuing the destruction of the State of Israel and the murderous conquest of all who value freedom.
As Goldberg notes:
"The travesty of this agreement is painfully compounded by one of its prime beneficiaries: Ebrahim Raisi, the newly installed Iranian president described by experts as a gruesome and unapologetic killer. Gone is the illusion of coming to terms with a so-called moderate or reformer. This will be a blood pact delivered to mass murderers and terrorists. And it will be a poke in the eye to the 1,200 Gold Star family members who asked the Biden administration not to release funds to the regime until all federal judgments were paid to American victims of Iran-sponsored terrorism."
This is in the face of Iran's continuous assault on our military personnel and allies in the region and continuing to hold Americans and westerners hostage.
The Obama Biden Administration's history of mendacity on this issue is well documented. Apparently the Administration thinks it can once again "dupe" enough members of Congress and the American people by deceptively trying to blame his disastrous policy on his predecessor. But it is a direct result of Joe Biden’s policy choices. As Goldberg observes. It was Biden who decided to relax sanctions on Iran. It was Biden who decided not to respond militarily to attacks on U.S. forces, including the death of a U.S. contractor. It was Biden who decided not to hold Iran accountable before the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It was Biden who decided to rescind America’s attempted snapback of U.N. sanctions. The fact is Iran's aggression and intransigence magnified once Biden took office and continued to display weakness.
The Biden Administration - presuming ignorance and lack of resolve on the part of the American people - probably thinks it can resort to its old deception of painting truth tellers as warmongers - when in reality it is its own inane, outrageous and dangerous policies that are moving us farther from peace.
STOPIRANNOW.ORG sums up the current predicament:
“This is not a deal - this is a surrender - the United States Congress must not surrender - the American people will never surrender”
There is a better way and Congress must demand it - that starts with the American people demanding it of Congress.
StopIranNow.org urges all Americans of goodwill:
"Please contact your United States Senators and your United States Representative and urge them to speak up now against the feckless, dangerous and souless policies of Joe Biden vis-a-vis Iran. This matter must transcend partisan politics. It is a test of our common humanity."
Every single Senator and member of Congress must be made to realize if they do not stand up on this defining issue there will be electoral retribution.
Please express your concern in your own words and tell your senators and representative how important this issue is to you. Please send your letter to us so we can share them with each other. Each of us can and must make a difference.
Even if the powers that be try to play fast and loose with the Constitution and the law like they did last time around - some Congressional imprimatur will be required. Our elected officials cannot sit this one out or try to minimize its importance.
Those in England, France and Germany must communicate their outrage to their governments as well.
All it takes for evil to prevail is for good people to stay silent.
Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
The time is now.
Thank you and G-d bless you.
