That’s fine. Are you ready to back that up?
Iran will also never give up its quest to gain a nuclear weapon. The deal with Barack Obama was a tactic to eventually legitimize its quest, since the deal expires, and provide more time for research, missile development, and so forth. All while cheating.
In the end, it will take the U.S. and Israeli military, or just the U.S. military, to destroy their capability. If the current crisis escalates, and we’ve got war anyway, that will be the time to do it.
The world will not survive long term with either an Iranian or North Korean nuclear capability. Nothing equals these threats. They are existential. Crazy, violent people cannot have nuclear weapons and the missiles with which to deliver them.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed President Trump’s all-caps tweet this week, saying the United States is committed to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
“President Trump could not be more clear. On our watch, Iran will not get a nuclear weapon,” Pompeo said during a press briefing Tuesday. “And as we came into office, Iran was on a pathway that had been provided by the nuclear deal, which clearly gave them the opportunity to have those nuclear weapons. We won’t let that happen.”
His message came a day after Trump tweeted, “IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON!”
