Why The Iran Deal Must Go

The nuclear deal with Iran was issued in July of 2015. The presidency has changed, and Barack is no longer in charge. With President Trump in power, the concerns of this deal are resurfacing.

President Donald Trump does not seize in warning Washington DC of how badly he wants to walk away from the nuclear deal with Iran that the United States engaged in during Obama’s presidency. He firmly believes that the main problems with the deal include how weakly monitored it is, as well as how the Islamic Republic has areas that have not been included in the agreement. They are purposefully excluded from reports, which are being used for unsupervised development of nuclear military technology for the state.

The real issue is that domination of the Middle East and the destruction of Israel has been a primary goal for Iran. This deal works across religious lines and fails to take into account how determined Iran is to do such things. Despite Iran’s Shiite base, their guards have been allowing Sunni Islamists in the terror group Hamas to enter Gaza and rebuild the tunnel networks that had been previously destroyed by the IDF.

So, what exactly is this deal, and how should a member of the Jewish nation side in regards to this situation?

If Iran had tried to build a nuclear bomb before the agreement had been made, it would take them about two to three months to produce a bomb’s worth of material. This would result in over fifteen thousand centrifuges of enriched uranium for aggressive technology.

However, despite the upside that now, it would take much longer to build an efficient nuclear bomb, there are still many downsides to this deal.

To begin, The UN Security Council had spent years insisting for Iran to stop enriching uranium entirely, but now, the deal allows for them to enrich uranium. On top of this, they have thousands of kilograms of enriched uranium to use for “peaceful energy”, but the risk remains. This sense of trust that Obama has established is faulty, as this negotiation is still being done with a primarily terrorist country. In addition, The United States had initially limited the number of centrifuges used to enrich uranium, but now doesn’t. It had at first limited the country to around five hundred centrifuges, and now allows for over six thousand. This allows for them to enrich uranium about twenty times faster than before.

Lastly, and most importantly, enforcement of this deal is much harder to maintain. Former president Obama had stated that if Iran ever cheats the system, the world will know. Yet, within the agreement he grants them a warning of nearly a month before his inspectors arrive in their country.

The United States needs to realize that the game being played is not their own. This is a religious minefield mixed with a mentality hell-bent on domination.
