President Obama issued a grim warning to Americans during a speech on Wednesday: If Congress turns down the current proposed nuclear agreement with Iran, a war in the Middle East suddenly becomes very likely.
“Congressional rejection of this deal leaves any U.S. administration that is absolutely committed to preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon with one option, another war in the Middle East.”
President Obama was also quick to note that turning down the proposed deal wouldn’t actually deter Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
“Here’s the irony. As I said before, military action would be far less effective than this deal in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. That’s not just my supposition. Every estimate, including those from Israeli analysts, suggest military action would only set back Iran’s program by a few years at best, which is a fraction of the limitations imposed by this deal.”
Opponents of the proposed agreement argue that it does not go far enough to ensure that Iran will never be able to develop a nuclear weapon, but it remains to be seen if there are enough of them in Congress to bury this deal.
