Trump leaves Republicans with heavy lift on Iran deal

There are 63 comments on the WWL-AM New Orleans story from Oct 15, 2017, titled Trump leaves Republicans with heavy lift on Iran deal. In it, WWL-AM New Orleans reports that:

Republicans demanded a major say on the Iran nuclear agreement two years ago and never got it from Democrat Barack Obama. Now that President Donald Trump has directed Congress to make the international pact more stringent, the GOP is finding that having that voice won't be easy.

I hope Trump doesn't mind disappointment because this Congress is only interested in deregulation and moving assets overseas.

“president” Boo Boo can’t stand that the Iran deal is working -exactly- like it is supposed to.

Leaving now would be especially disastrous.

Iran has gotten billions in sanctions relief already, much of which the US can’t revoke.

Since the deal is working on technical grounds, European powers — which do more business with Iran and thus can impose more painful sanctions than the US can — likely wouldn’t reimpose sanctions if the US unilaterally destroyed the agreement.

A US exit would barely hurt Iran and would also give it a pretext to kick out IAEA inspectors and start ramping up its nuclear program again.

It would be the worst of all possible worlds.

The majority of “president” Boo Boo’s national security Cabinet members recognize this reality.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson all appear to oppose decertifying Iran.

When Mattis was asked during an October 3 Senate hearing whether he thinks staying in the deal is in US national security interests, his answer was simple:

“Yes, Senator, I do.”

The last time there was a decertification deadline, this July, these advisers argued unanimously and vociferously against decertification.

Their principal opponent was the president himself, who was apparently furious at them.

There is NO policy on his part in this, it’s 100% egomaniacal.

Pathetic.

IS THE PROBLEM!

In less than a decade, Iran will have the same capabilities as North Korea does today.
And then, what?
Will we be begging Russia to help stifle Iran?
Yeah, that'll happen.

And with no deal they would have had those capabilities by now.

Iran Breaches the Nuclear Deal and UN Resolutions for Third Time

By Dr. Majid Rafizadeh

Stringer Iran / Reuters

Iranian leaders have breached both the resolutions and the nuclear agreement for the third time since the nuclear deal went into effect in January 2016. Iran has repeatedly test-fired, long-range ballistic missiles and laser-guided surface-to-surface missiles.
In October and November, just after the nuclear deal was reached, Iran tested a new ballistic missile capable of carrying multiple warheads.

In March, Iran again test-fired two ballistic missiles.
More recently and for the third time, the Iranian government fired a test missile two weeks ago which was accurate to 25 feet, which is characterized as zero error, according to the Brigadier General Ali Abdollahi, the Iranian military’s deputy chief of staff, and Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The range of existing Iranian ballistic missiles has grown from 500 miles to over 2,000 kilometers (roughly 1,250 miles), which can easily reach Eastern Europe as well as countries such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Yemen.

Obama 's gift of millions sure helped them and their betrayal of the agreement was never going to stop anything and it hasn't because we don't know what Iran is doing.

There are currently internal spy elements in Iran, who once again assert their are secret nuclear facilities operating. There appears to be satellite photos substantiating this claim. This is only what the public disclosures assert. Apparently, high level, top secret security agency information is much more convicting, else Trump wouldn't have decertified and asked Congress to take a look at the problem. Loser Democrats will continue to find any opportunity, any issue, to slander and libel the President. They are traitors. Some of them are enabling saboteurs and sleeper foreign agents to enter the U.S., then protect them. The disinformation Democrats are threatening the security of the United States of America. In their insane jealousies and angers, they have lost touch with how things are supposed to work between the President and Congress.

It's Trump's Lifelong pattern...make a Catastrophic Disaster out of everything he touches, then Dump It in somebody else's lap to fix it, and WALK AWAY!
His entire Life is a history of doing EXACTLY THAT! I've never read, or heard about ANYTHING that he's EVER FIXED...NOTHING! He'll tall you that he has, but HE'S LYING, as usual!

As has happened in many areas of Congress not taking the ball and doing what needs to be done, President Trump cautiously waits for them to fail in their character and intent, then finally does something himself with Executive Orders and conference with appointees. It has happened with scores of issues. If the lunatic fringe of Leftists and pathological liars here paid any attention at all, they'd know it.

And, look! Leftist, treasonous lunatics continue to call themselves "brilliant." Their banality is disturbing, yet they think they are wise.

All part of their plans for a New World Order with single socialist-economy(except for the billionaires), a universal religion called Chrislam(Luciferianism), and a government ruled by a Satanic-dictator(Obama?).
Hatred of President Trump is demon-driven. EVERYTHING the American public believes is a lie. 9/11 WAS an inside-job just like Pearl Harbor and the OKC bombing. Oswald WAS a patsy. Obama is NOT a natural born citizen. And pink-slime IS people, at least in-part. Global-warming is the biggest lie since evolution. Allah is just another name for the devil Satan(formerly known as Lucifer). I expect BHO will be made Secretary General of the UN/NWO later this year and will be indwelt by Satan as The Antichrist. Jesuit Pope Francis is the False Prophet and will head the universal religion of Chrislam which ultimately and blatantly will worship the devil requiring human sacrifice and cannibalism. Jesus provides our ONLY means of escape.

What do you suppose the global community do to shut down Iranian engineers, scienctist and physicsist from prefecting their knowledge base and teaching those disciplines in Iranian schools ?
