Obama Randomly Adds Five Years to Iran No-Nukes Prospects

Okay, so now it’s 20 years.

President Obama informed Israel Tuesday via a TV interview: “Sanctions won’t do it, a military solution is temporary – the deal that we’re negotiating potentially takes a nuclear weapon off the table for 20 years.”

If you’re keeping score at home, you may remember that the president had previously acknowledged to the world that it was legitimate to believe that Iran “in year 13, 14, 15,” of the deal would “have advanced centrifuges that enrich uranium fairly rapidly, and at that point, the breakout times would have shrunk almost down to zero.”

And once the breakout time is zero, well then, a nuclear weapon is not just on the table, it might be on its way to Tel Aviv! And eventually, of course, to America.

And let’s not forget the contention by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz that the Iraq deal was a “forever agreement.”

I mean 15 years seems like forever, but it’s not.

Think about what the president is saying. This was supposed to be a for never deal. The Iranian nuclear program was supposed to be shut down. Even if we accept Obama’s creative new timeline extension, what comfort is that to anyone with a life expectancy of under 20 years – or to anyone who cares about someone expected to live that long?

In other words, WHAT GOOD IS IT?

Bill Hemmer of Fox News brings up an excellent point this morning, asking Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) whether acknowledging a military strike won’t end the Iranian program is “smart pool?” That is, if the a military strike is supposedly an option, if it is really something Obama is considering, and if it actually is the stick he’s using to beat the Iranians into an agreement, why would he telegraph that it’s essentially a futile measure?

Because as Corker correctly responds, everybody, including the Iranians, has always known that the “military option” was never an option for Obama, which is why he is winding up with such a lousy deal.

  1. OK. perhaps MrKerry is using their fearmongering about the oceans rising to get them to agree to 15, 20 years of no nukes, because Israel will be underwater by then anyway. Problem solved – Allah will drown all the infidels ..or something like that.

    This whole administration is wacky from the regulation of rain puddles to the now Jewish President.
    No wonder the public is focusing on the Kardashians – at least they make sense.

  2. Folks that lie have a hard time remembering the lies they have already told. That why cops catch the bad guys. But no one is after the HNIC.

    • He lies with impunity.
      Who has the audacity to confront him ?
      No-one, not even the congress.
      Cowards in the face of a bully.

  3. As soon as the ink is dry on Obama’s traitorous pact with the devil, it’s game over. Iran – 1; USA – 0. Nuke inspections by appointment only! WTH!

  4. ““You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office…”

    Schmuck, schlemiel, putz. That’s how Jewish Dear Leader is.

  5. Pretty much will be same old same old – Iran will do as it wants, when it wants, how it wants. They will never be held to any real accountability. BO & Company are doing this to look good but in reality handing the mess over to the next elected administration to handle. Will the next administration blame BO?? We shall see.

    This will be one of several issues lame duck BO will stir up, make a mess of, and then walk away. Oh, and blame others.
