Please tell me this means that any sort of nuclear deal with Iran is now officially off the table?!?!?! This breaking news is only confirming what every person in the entire world with half a brain already knew: YOU CAN’T TRUST IRAN!
From Fox News:
A U.S. aircraft carrier has been dispatched to waters off Yemen to join other American ships prepared to block any Iranian shipments to the Houthi rebels fighting in Yemen.
The U.S. Navy has been beefing up its presence in the Gulf of Aden and the southern Arabian Sea amid reports that a convoy of about eight Iranian ships is heading toward Yemen and possibly carrying arms for the Houthis.
Tensions are rising in the region even as the U.S. and five other world powers scramble to strike a final deal with Iran on its nuclear program by the end of June. The fighting in Yemen, where U.S. ally Saudi Arabia is leading a coalition against the Iran-backed rebels, is complicating matters.
I think “complicating matters” is a bit of an understatement but hey, potato-potato, right?
Most of us already knew that Iran cannot be trusted as it is, so why would anyone in their right mind want to allow them to obtain a nuclear weapon and then actually believe that somehow we would magically be able to trust them after that?!
Among the most vocal world leaders to any nuclear deal with Iran is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. When addressing Congress several months ago, he warned that defeating ISIS but allowing Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon would be “winning the battle but losing the war.” He went on to say that, “the enemy of your enemy is…your enemy” when speaking of Iran joining the fight against ISIS.
It seems that while President Obama has been more concerned with his desperate attempts to salvage any hopes of leaving a positive legacy, he is ignoring the common sense warnings that are staring him right in the face.
2016 can’t come soon enough…unless our options are Hillary or Jeb Bush. In which case, I’m moving to Canada. Or maybe now that Cuba is no longer considered a “state sponsor of terrorism” there will be some job opportunities there…
