No Deal With Iran Can Possibly Be Valid

Masters of Deception

Sadly, the liberal/left wing of the USA’s Democratic Party (most Democrats) find the latest “deal” (not to be considered a treaty by the White House since treaties require a 2/3 vote of approval by the U.S. Senate) to have many good points. Wasn’t a high powered, former professor from M.I.T., Eric Moniz, on the negotiating committee? And did he not insist to the public that the acceptance of the deal need not be based on trust for the President, but on the hard facts, the nuts and bolts, of “the deal”?

Facts are now supposed to replace a need for trustworthiness in a trustworthy deal. If the facts are sufficiently written in stone, then you don’t need to have partners to the deal who are trustworthy. As this writer recalls, certain tablets of stone were given to the Israelites and through them to the world. They were written in stone, but the hardness of the stone is not what guaranteed the claim of the writings on the stone. Rather, a promise-keeping, majestic, all-perfect “I AM” who gave the writings on the stone guaranteed the efficacy of the commands written thereon. The stones given to Moses are efficacious and valid to this day, i.e., for about 3500 years.

As anyone knows who has studied history, documents between cultures, countries, and tribes are only as efficacious as the parties are trustworthy who signed those documents. A peace treaty signed between the Puritans under John Winthrop and the Wampanoag Indians led by Chief Massasoit remained in effect and unbroken for 50 years. When they died King Philips War broke out. The alliance system in Europe established in the 19th century as a way of keeping a balance of power in Europe is considered by many historians to be a contributing factor to WWI. Why? Because the alliances were perceived by some of the parties as being made, so to speak, to be broken.

Could it happen that this ironclad document (“the deal”) would end the same way as the supposedly iron clad agreement with No. Korea ended? Pres. Clinton also promised inspections and protocols guaranteed to prevent North Korea from gaining nuclear weapons. Was the promised outcome realized? The answer is now part of history.

The Clinton Administration pounded the public with a long list of lies, but the present Administration has been even more ruthless in this regard. Here is a partial list of false statements on a variety of issues that have been declared to the public: Lois Lerner and the Washington DC office of the IRS had nothing to do with the “rogue agents” in Cincinnati that used IRS investigative powers to harass and burden conservative not-for-profit organizations. The assault on our embassy in Libya and death of four Americans including our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, was the result of a spontaneous uprising of the population that viewed a 15 minute youtube video that put down the person and teachings of Mohammed. Under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) a person can keep his or her doctor and the same coverage. With regard to Obamacare, another M.I.T. professor, Jonathan Gruber, admitted that the administration exploited Americans’ “lack of economic understanding” to hide the fact that ACA was a direct tax on the customer. Despite the legal requirement that Congress be given 30 days’ notice before releasing prisoners from Guantanamo, five Taliban generals held in captivity because of terrorist activities (resulting in the deaths of thousands of Muslims among others), were released for one American deserter. The Administration prevaricated again saying that they did not know at the time of his release that he had done anything other than serve his country faithfully.

Additionally, the Administration said that it was drawing a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons by Syria. However, the red line was never enforced. Also, ISIS was declared to be a “JV team,” but they have proven to be effective against the “varsity.” Then, as violence began erupting in state after state in the Middle East, we were told that this was a manifestation of an “Arab Spring.” Democracy was about to bloom. It was only a matter of time. Something positive was going to come in the form of a greater acceptance of democracy by the Arab world. Years have passed. Do we see a manifestation of democracy or a descent into even greater anarchy and civil strife than we witnessed in the ten years before the breakout of the “Spring”?

Despite this fragmentary but compelling list of prevarications, we are told that facts, not trust, makes this a trustworthy deal.

Thus far, this article has questioned the reason to trust the U.S. in this treaty. But what about the other party, Iran? Iran has savaged the U.S. since the Ayatollah Khomeini came to power in 1979 declaring the U.S. to be the “Great Satan” and Israel to be “the Little Satan.” This imagery fit in perfectly with the Iranian Qu’ranic eschatology about the coming of the Twelfth Imam to defeat the Great Satan. Since then, Iran has been promoting world terrorism. Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Houthis are all terrorist outreaches of Iran. Iran has launched terrorist attacks against Jews in faraway Argentina. The government of Iran has suppressed democracy internally by incredible violence and suppression of dissent. They plotted to assassinate a Saudi official in the U.S.

They have lied repeatedly since the mid-1990’s about their nuclear program and have hidden sites from IAEA inspectors repeatedly. That is why there were sanctions against them in the first place. Further, they are holding U.S. citizens in their prisons on trumped up charges, and they are on the State Department list of terrorist countries (yes, we have entered into these long and precarious negotiations with one of only four countries so listed). They are on the list, they went onto the list, because of the horrible hostage taking of American embassy personnel when the present mullocracy took over in 1979 while Jimmy Carter was President. They have never paid one cent in reparations for this dastardly deed nor apologized for this egregious, evil conduct.
