With their monumentally historic blunder of caving into Iran’s demands, Obama and Kerry will go down in history as the most dangerously naive diplomats since Neville Chamberlain appeased Adolf Hitler (proclaiming “Peace in Our Time” while actually ushering in World War II).
None of Obama’s proclaimed aims were achieved!
Iran’s nuclear program will not be dismantled. “Anywhere/anytime” inspections are not permitted (a 24-day advance notice is required). The consequences are entirely predictable (and will be called “unintended”).
Iran will violate the provisions as they have in the past (following North Korea’s textbook on bamboozling the West). Sanctions will not be “snapped-back” as Europeans, Russia, and China will block reimposition. Iran will use the $150 billion check and sanctions relief to finance terrorists (Hamas, Hezbollah, Assad, Yemen, et al) and build up conventional forces.

Iran will develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missile launch systems. A new age of nuclear proliferation will occur as Iran’s neighbors (i.e. Saudi Arabia) will pursue their own nuclear weapons to prevent being blackmailed by Iran. Iranian nuclear bombs will be set off somewhere in the world (probably Israel and America).
Our enemies celebrated while the U.S. sold out its allies — all for the sake of Obama’s “legacy.”
