Reports have recently emerged that a new nuclear deal with Iran, the world's largest sponsor of terror, is nearing completion. This is a deeply troubling development, as the deal is far too lenient on Iran and will only serve to embolden the regime's pursuit of nuclear weapons and its support for terrorism.
The deal's flaws
The new deal has a number of serious flaws. First, it does not factor in the progress that Iran has made in recent years in developing its nuclear program. Iran has now enriched uranium to 60%, which is just a few steps away from weapons-grade levels. The deal also does not address Iran's undeclared nuclear sites or its research and development into long-range ballistic missiles.
Second, the deal lifts sanctions on terrorist organizations and individuals, including the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which is responsible for the deaths of countless innocent people. The deal also lifts sanctions on individuals such as Ebrahim Raisi, the Butcher of Tehran, who is responsible for the mass execution of thousands of innocent Iranians.
Third, the deal does not require Iran to destroy any of its advanced centrifuges. This means that Iran will be able to quickly ramp up its nuclear enrichment if it chooses to do so.
The deal's implications
The new deal will have a number of dangerous implications. First, it will make it easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons. Second, it will embolden Iran to continue its support for terrorism. Third, it will destabilize the Middle East region and increase the risk of conflict. Fourth, it will threaten the security of the United States and its allies.
What must be done
The new deal with Iran is a farce and must be stopped. The Biden administration should reconsider the deal and work with its allies to find a better way to deter Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and supporting terrorism.
One possible solution is to impose stricter sanctions on Iran. This could include targeting Iran's oil and gas exports, which are the regime's main source of revenue. Another possible solution is to increase military pressure on Iran. This could include deploying more US warships to the Gulf region or conducting airstrikes against Iranian nuclear facilities.
The Biden administration should also work with its allies to develop a more comprehensive strategy for dealing with Iran. This strategy should include a diplomatic component, a sanctions component, and a military component. The goal of this strategy should be to deter Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons and supporting terrorism, and to promote a more peaceful and stable Middle East.
The new nuclear deal with Iran is a dangerous deal that will only serve to embolden the regime and make the world a more dangerous place. The Biden administration must reconsider the deal and work with its allies to find a better way to deal with Iran.
