Even Iran is Against It | March 30, 2015

I haven’t written much about this Iran nuclear deal because it is a bad idea all around and there’s not much voters can do about it. The people who voted for Obama should have known this was a possibility and went along with it anyway. Worse yet, the rest of the world seems to want an arrangement that Iran will violate and eventually break in exchange for short-term political gain.

For most countries, having nuclear weapons isn’t about the weapons. Having a weapon capable of destroying whole cities and irradiating them for decades (if we’re lucky) to come in this world means you are a player on the world stage. The rest of the world is forced to make deals with you because you are too dangerous to become a loose cannon.

Like China, a nuclear Iran or North Korea could get favorable trade deals for years to come just for having such ultimate weapons. Of course, this is the best case scenario. As more unstable countries gain nuclear capabilities, they may decide the weapons themselves are a tactical advantage in seemingly endless wars. Israel has been bombed consistently for decades, with their superior technology being their saving grace. A few nukes aimed at Tel Aviv and life is over as they know it. This is why that country’s leadership is so against these deals.

Peace in the Middle East is fleeting at best. A nuclear arsenal is forever. Talk about trading freedom for temporary security.

  1. obama’s quest to make Iran a nuclear power is a violation of the Prime Directive, which is a ficionalized version of humankind’s Moral Imperative.
