The framework agreement on nuclear weapons with Iran could open the flood gates, Heritage Foundation expert James Phillips explains:
While the administration will spin the agreement as a signal that the Iranians are acting more reasonably, Tehran will see the deal as acceptance in the West of its policies and behavior. There is danger that Iran will be emboldened to escalate its destabilizing behavior in the region, not reduce it. And the more sanctions relief Iran gains, the more cash it will have to finance terrorism and other subversive activities.
We only have to look to the past to see that Iran has a poor track record for keeping its word. Considering its long history of violating nuclear agreements, it’s difficult to accept that Iran won’t cheat. Fool me once…
Ultimately, Phillips says, “the Obama administration made an agreement in principle with an Iranian regime that has no principles, except to expand its power and export its revolution.”
