obama approves deal for iran to obtain 130 tons of uranium

enough to make 10 nuclear bombs. if that isn't a big F U, idk what is!

https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/8...-uranium-iran/


The Obama administration and the rest of the signatories to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal have approved a shipment of 130 tons of natural uranium from Russia to Iran, rewarding the Islamic Republic for shipping 44 tons of heavy water it sent to Russia after exceeding the limit it could legally produce under the deal. Experts have told US media outlets the amount of uranium to be shipped is enough to produce 10 nuclear bombs.

The announcement of the new shipment is seen as one more last-minute jab from the Obama White House at incoming President Trump, who probably would have vetoed the shipment, even though, according to US diplomats speaking to the Associated Press and Fox News, the amount of uranium is within what’s allowable under the 2015 deal. Republican lawmakers have almost uniformly opposed that nuclear deal, arguing it awarded Iran too many concessions. The same lawmakers – which included the current Democratic Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (NY) – also argued the deal does not provide reliable verifications of Iran’s compliance.

Last month the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) warned that at current production levels Iran is going to exceed its cap on low-enriched uranium. Also, just a few days before the IAEA sounded the alarm, President Hassan Rouhani ordered Iran’s nuclear agency to develop nuclear engines that would use uranium enriched to 20 percent – a clear violation of the 2015 deal allowing Iran to enrich only to 3.67 percent.

What the hell is this all about anyway? Why did Obama make such an asinine deal? So he could say what? Some lie about ending the nuclear program? For his fake legacy?

We are the strongest and mightiest nation on this planet. Yet, we make deals as if we were the ones at a disadvantage. I am excited at the thought of someone that actually has experience making deals coming into the White House. It's time that people understand the US is no longer going to just sign off on anything to make a headline.

It's not President Barack H Obama's fault. Really, it isn't. We, the American people elected someone to the highest leadership position in our country that had zero leadership experience. He was never governor of a state. He was never mayor of a city. He wasn't even troop leader in the Boy Scouts. He was a community organizer, a senior lecturer, a state senator, and a first term US senator. None of those position involve leadership. The left may think that I'm being unfair in that assessment but it is true. The first example of leadership that he showed was his campaign to win the presidency, and that was contracted out.

This is why it is important for a presidential candidate to have real world experience beyond academia. I often hear the axiom, "Those that can do. Those that can't teach."

On the positive side, President Elect Donald J Trump brings a lifetime of leadership to the presidency. It's what he does and has always done. He's a dealmaker, a builder, and a leader. Vice President Elect Mike Pence has run a private law practice and been governor of a state. Like Obama, Pence served as a lawmaker but in addition, he brings leadership experience to the table, something that Obama did not have.

Um, Southern Dad, you DO realize that your list of credentials for Presidential candidacy are not held (NOT ONE OF THEM) by Mr. Trump, right?

Trump totally has the leadership resume. You may be looking down your nose at business but you are foolish to do so.

I didn't say that they were the credentials required for a presidential candidacy. They were examples of leadership. Do you disagree that Donald J Trump has a lifetime of leadership experience? Think about it. Leadership is the most important quality that the leader of your country should bring to the table. What did Barack H Obama lead before becoming president?

Look, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, Germany, and Russia signed the deal. That means the deal is Putin-approved.

What could possibly be the problem?

The problem is crazy Iran that feels its cool to hang 13 year old girls by the neck in the town square for having sex, is going to have nuclear weapons. All with the aide of Obama. You worry about Trump's words about Putin but you ignore Obama's actions with Putin. Russia and Iran are best buds.

Well, we all know it is far, far better if Iran, instead, has on hand an equivalent amount of U-238 in low and medium enriched form where the majority of the amount of effort is already complete to produce fuel for the same number of nuclear weapons...of which is what they had before the deal was made.
