The Iranian Nuclear deal that was made official on Tuesday (July 14) makes me uncomfortable for a number of reasons.
The deal that has been two years in the making gives way to opportunity for a country that is so bent on the destruction of freedom and the American way. Sanctions will be systematically lifted over time from Iran upon cooperation of certain terms, uranium enrichment will be cut down, and inspections will be held...if all goes according to plan.
The problem with this is that this deal is being made with a government that has a leader that does not have the best track record when it comes to trust. Only a day before this deal was reached, President of Iran Hassan Rouhani attended a protest which consisted of the burning of American and Israeli flags accompanied by "death to America" chants.
The bigger issue at hand with this deal, though, is that it paints a different kind of picture in the Middle East. Ties with America and Israel are made weaker and validity is being given to a country with a terroristic ideology. Negotiating with such people will only make them stronger because it gives them the opportunity to strike when others' guards are down.
It was made based on the fact that there was no better option. When you make a decision that is based on the idea that it is the lesser of two evils, how safe can it really be? Our enemies are celebrating as our allies are berating our leader's actions. Diplomacy, in my opinion, cannot be practiced with an undiplomatic regime.
The notion that sanctions are going to be lifted with the option to "snap back" at any moment if Iran is found to be defiant of the deal in place is also an inkling as to how our country truly feels about its counterpart. The snap back option within the deal implies that at any moment Iran can be expected to break the agreement. If this concept exists within this deal, how plausible can it truly be?
The agreement between our country and Iran is not a solid one. Not only will it take years to enforce, but it needs to be finalized by a house extremely divided. There is no exact plan as to how this deal will pan out, it's just theoretical at this point.
That is why I am extremely uncomfortable. The instability of it all. When you cooperate with bad people, you never know how they will follow through. That is why people are so nervous about this deal. Because there is no actual guarantee that these monsters will not try to destroy us at the end of the day. And, more importantly, this deal does not prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons, it only postpones that horrific reality.
This deal is giving immense power back to a country that has been out of play due to past sanctions in the Middle East. The balance that exists currently within the Middle East (which isn't even a strong one) will tip drastically because of these negotiations which can also lead to chaos.
People may think that this won't effect us who are comfortably existing within the free country of America, but that is not the case. The true reality of this situation is that despite this deal, Iran will eventually possess the capability to attack Israel or even New York City with weapons which they are very close to successfully creating.
With a government so inclined on power and worldly authority, how can one trust their word? That is the major question which needs to be asked when it comes to the circumstances which we find ourselves in now. How on Earth did our country get to a point where they are negotiating with a country thats intention is to destroy anyone who stands in their way of implementing a lifestyle without freedom?
This deal was made due to the fact that there was no other option. War is not the answer, but neither is this. I know that is a weak statement, but it is the truth. When one makes an agreement in a weak state, the agreement itself is weak.
That is what is going on right now.
