Really it’s a joke to even call it a “deal,” when it’s more of absolute capitulation. Do we really want Muslims, of any sort, to have bombs with a wider blast radius?
I don’t advocate for war with Iran, but this “deal” is abjectly stupid. Really the sanctions should stay in place until they have a non-Islamic government again. If Obama felt sorry for Iranians he should have helped the Iranian Green Revolution, which was the only secular revolution in the entire Middle East-North Africa region at the time. The so-called “Arab-Spring” was just an Islamic revival.
Israel is our only ally in the Middle east which is officially a country. Our other TWO only friends and allies there, aside from Israel, are the Kurds, and Christians. The Kurds do have an independent country, but it’s not officially recognized, and of course it’s under attack by Turkey (who are actual virulent genocidal racists), and ISIS. Christians, such as the Assyrians and Coptic/ethnic Egyptians, have no country and are largely at the mercy of Muslims. Obama has shown repeated disdain for all three groups. No Muslim is our ally nor can they be.
There are some Muslims who would literally blow up the entire world with one bomb if they could, because that would, according to their religion, get them a good place in Heaven. According to Islam, Allah determines whether you go to heaven or hell by weighing your good deeds against your bad. If the good outweighs the bad, then you go to heaven, if the reverse is true then you go to hell. However, the Islamic concept of good and bad is not like the Christian, Jewish, or general western ideas. For example, killing infidels for Allah is good. Muhammad told his followers to do that over and over again. That is why Muslims are fine with collateral damage for the cause, because as long as they kill more infidels than Muslims, then they are still going to heaven, and there are many more infidels in this world than Muslims.
It’s bad enough that Pakistan has nukes, but the leaders of Pakistan are really secular atheists or agnostics who love power and pretend to be Muslim so they can hold onto it. Just like many of our politicians in the US pretend to be Christians even though they’re not. The government of Iran are truly Islamic crazy nutters. If they have a nuke, there’s a good chance they will use it. If Congress has any sense they will refuse to ratify this treaty. I don’t know if they will have any sense, however, since the DNC are all one mind, and many of the Republicans are cuckservatives.
