Cruz: Iran Deal 'Dangerous for America'
weeklystandard.com ^ | November 08, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Senator Ted Cruz says that the proposed U.S.-Iran deal is "dangerous for America." He made the comments in a prepared statement sent out today by his Senate office. Ted Cruz

“If the reports are correct, this is a terrible deal, and it is dangerous for America. The prospect of Iran acquiring nuclear weapon capacity is the gravest national security threat we face, yet it appears that this 'deal' does not require Iran to dismantle even a single centrifuge or turn over even a single pound of enriched uranium. To lift economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for an amorphous promise to pause their immediate efforts to acquire nuclear weapons makes no sense whatsoever. It is almost surely unverifiable, and lifting the sanctions will only encourage Iran to surreptitiously continue to develop nuclear weapons--weapons that, if acquired, pose an existential threat to America and our allies," reads the statement.

"The United States should negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness. We should have insisted on good-faith measures before meeting with the Iranians directly, such as the release of Pastor Saeed Abedini and the acknowledgment of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu has taken the extraordinary step of condemning what is happening in Geneva as a 'very, very bad deal.' President Obama should not abandon our friend and ally Israel, and he should not cut a deal that endangers the national security of the United States."

It makes perfect sense if you are a Muslim jihadist.

Or traitorous Kerry.

BHO2 doesn’t know, or care, if it is a good or bad deal.

It is what Valerie Jarrett ordered.

“If the reports are correct..”

If a US Senator is getting the same information on critical data as the rest of us....

I rest my case to the American public.

We are most definitely screwed.

remember an anarchist named Kerry met with communist Vietnam in Paris which precipitated congress pulling funding for US troops fighting in Vietnam. He effectively gave away South Vietnam to the Vietcong, and he had no official standing. He loves this type meeting where he can do so much damage to the US. Congress then was scared out of their wits of the revolutionary groups all over the place- not much different from a bunch of congress persons today - afraid of their shadows.Kerry is dangerous.

A deal between two nations, neither of which can be trusted.

Hollowing out our military, emasculating our fighting forces, arming our enemies. Gee, I wonder what he could be up to.

If you like Iran's amorphous unverifiable promise...I sure they'll keep their amorphous unverifiable promise.

Obama worships a philosophy, a philosophy of pitting powers against one another and attempting to control what comes out the other end.

It is nothing more than a humanist attempt to control what unfolds. But, there is a God who knows the end from the beginning. He will overturn any man’s schemes within schemes.

They will come to naught after causing their measure of damage.
