Iran Nuclear Agreement

Iran Nuclear Agreement

  • I am absolutely against the Iran Nuclear Agreement because it will cause an “arms race” to occur,  This agreement also facilitates the funneling of billions of sanction relief to Iranian proxies within the Middle East and the World.  These proxies have nothing but animosity towards our allies like Israel.

 

  • My job as a planner for the U.S. Army and deployment experience in the U.S. Navy, specifically encompassed the Iranian area of responsibility.  Because of this experience, several Iranian actions were predictable to people who have extensive knowledge in the area.  These actions include more aggressive rhetoric towards Israel, Iranian contradictions about the wording of the deal, an arms race developing in the Middle East, threatening closure of the Straits of Hormuz because of an emboldened position, and an increase in the funding of the Iranian military and proxy groups.  An agreement could have been reached which would have provided better security for our Nation and allies in the region.  This deal produced the opposite.  The publicized reports about Iran’s actions are just the start of the coming problems in the region and are exacerbated because of this deal.  The U.S. and its allies will pay for many years beyond a two-year Congressional Term, due to the incumbent’s vote of support for the Iranian Agreement.
