(Jul. 25, 2015) — As reported by The Washington Post, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States between 1981 and 2005, wrote an article in which he compares the Iranian nuclear deal to the failed nuclear weapons deal with North Korea—and concludes it will have even worse consequences.  The reader doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to fully understand that Obama is knowingly entering into a very bad and DANGEROUS deal for the American people.

Prince Bandar stated, with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama has damned the United States with, that “the strategic foreign policy analysis, the national intelligence information, and America’s allies in the region’s intelligence, all predict not only the same outcome of the North Korean nuclear deal, but (it will be) worse—with billions of dollars that Iran will have access to.”

It is now obvious that Saudi Arabia, in self-defense, will develop its own nuclear weapons program, and other pro-western Middle East allies such as Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Kuwait, etc. will follow suit.  By entering into the flawed Iranian agreement, Obama has assured Iran that it will be able to develop nuclear weapons, and by doing so he has created a nuclear weapons arms race in the Middle East.

Obama has been working closely with the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, a terrorist regime that has been killing Americans for 35 years and is determined to destroy the United States and Israel.  Unfortunately, SECRET provisions that no member of Congress will ever be permitted to read has been agreed to by Obama.  The SECRET provisions are another attempt by Obama to bypass the U.S. Congress, just as he bypassed the will of the American voters with the SECRET Fast-Track Trade Promotional agreement (TPP).

The Republican leadership in the House and Senate struck another deal with Obama to allow him to refer to another “International Treaty” as an agreement, this time with regard to the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement.  They previously struck a deal with Obama on the SECRET TPP 800-page law that very few members of Congress read before they voted for it. Obama is now able to push the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement through Congress because of a previous agreement with the Republican leadership.

Instead of abiding by the U.S. Constitution and demanding that the Iranian International Nuclear Weapons Agreement be treated as what it really is—an “International Treaty” requiring a two-thirds vote in the Senate for approval before it could be agreed to with Iran, the Republican leadership  instead agreed with Obama to turn that provision around.  Now, in order for Congress to “defeat” the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement, it will instead require a two-thirds vote of the Congress “to defeat it, not to approve it”— which is a betrayal of American citizens and unconstitutional.

It has been over three weeks since the TPP was signed into law, and the American people are still being prevented from reading the contents of that international treaty referred to as an agreement by the Obama administration.  The Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement also has SECRET provisions in the sections on inspections.  Only Iran and the UN’s IAEA inspectors are being permitted to read those provisions; no member of the U.S. Congress is being allowed to read those SECRET inspection provisions.

The Iranian military’s progress on nuclear weapons development is being excluded from review in the agreement so that the analysis of Iran’s development of nuclear weapons can’t be evaluated or predicted in the future.  In addition, at the Iranian Parchin Military Nuclear Weapons Research and Development Facility, the IAEA is being prevented from collecting soil samples; only Iranians will be permitted to collect and test soil samples, so progress in Iran’s nuclear weapons development program at that Iranian R &D military facility will be kept hidden from the U.S.

Any member of Congress who votes for the very dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement that Obama approved, an agreement that will arm Iran with nuclear weapons with which to strike the United States and its Middle East allies, should be defeated in 2016 or removed from office by a recall election.

  1. I was a staunch Trump supporter and opposed Obama. But Americans’ thinking seems to allow for no middle ground. Bad presidents are like stopped clocks, right 2x a day. Saudi Arabia is clearly the biggest terror supporter in the world but it is doubly dangerous because it pretends to want to stop the head choppers it has spawned and sponsors. SA is a SUNNI country that embraces Wahhabism, a salafist sect that tolerates no other religion, even moderate Sunnis, and certainly no Christian, Shiite leaders in the Muslim world. But one thing: they are smart enough to know they need the perverted US “leaders” on their side. Back in the early 70s Nixon and Kissinger made a frantic deal with the Saudis after the gold standard was sacked. They agreed to protect the royal family and oil fields in exchange for the Saudis protecting the dollar (Bloomberg carried this story after filing a freedom of information act suit). Judging by the way the US attacks all of the Saudi dictatorship’s enemies, the unwritten part of the deal went farther than that. Part of it seems to be an agreement to oust all secular leaders in the Arab world and to pretend that Iran is the “biggest state sponsor of terror in the world”, which is laughable since the major terror groups, Talliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS are all Sunni Wahhabist. Wahhabism, born in Saudi Arabia and the main sect there, embraced by the royals, is the most intolerant, violent sect in the world. Iran, however, is SHIITE, a more tolerant brand of Islam. For ex, there are 600 Christian churches in Iran and women taxi drivers are everywhere, while in SA, ALL Christian worship is banned and no women may drive. Further, Iranian fighters kill ISIS in Syria. But because of our devil’s pact with the Sauds, the US is on this huge witch hunt against Iran. It is all about protecting the petrodollar.

  2. The author of the Gospel which bears his name, Luke, was a physician. So he should know, right? Chapter 12, verse 19 says “Eat, drink and be merry.” Okay, so that’s slightly out of context.
