Speaking to Congress yesterday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that a nuclear deal with Iran would not stop the country from developing nuclear weapons. In fact, he said, the Obama administration’s hoped-for deal may even catalyze the development of such weapons.
Heritage Foundation expert James Carafano agrees with Netanyahu that this deal is not a “realistic plan for peace:”
A real peace plan would demonstrate that all sides were committed to not adding more nuclear weapons powers to the Middle East. The deal as it stands does the opposite—it preserves the nuclear option for Iran—and as result will prompt other regional powers to hedge their bets and prepare to go nuclear as well rather than live in Tehran’s nuclear shadow.
Do you agree that the deal with Iran is a bad deal?
