The Iran Nuclear Deal

Is the nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran a good or bad deal?

Is the nuclear agreement between the United States and Iran a good or bad deal? Would it be harder or easier for Iran to develop nuclear weapons? Would it make Iran and its terror proxies stronger or weaker? Should the U.S. Congress support or defeat the deal? Dennis Prager answers these questions and more.

dont be naive

Michael, you are naive. Who backs Hamas and Hizbollah and other extremist terrorist groups? Iran supplied the militant organization Hezbollah with substantial amounts of financial, training, weapons, explosives, political, diplomatic, and organizational aid. Hezbollah's 1985 manifesto listed its four main goals as "Israel's final departure from Lebanon as a prelude to its final obliteration". According to reports released in February 2010, Hezbollah received $400 million from Iran. By the early 1990s, Hezbollah, with support from Syria and Iran, emerged as the leading group and military power, monopolizing the directorship of the guerrilla activity in South Lebanon. This is much more dangerous than you are saying....the Komeini controls Iran and there are countless examples of state proclamations to annihilate Israel and all the Jews. Wake up!

Considering this deal it is vital for those who make decisions not to be short sighted. Think about this today US is strong but remember that the strong can also be outwitted at only one point. US should never negotiate such deals. This present Iran president can understand maybe, but think about a suicidal president of Iran rising to power in one generation. We will lose brilliant people by such small things. These people are automatically suicidal, look at this thinking like a terrorist " right now I will study the capabilities of a nuclear bomb when time is right and have analyzed everything I will shoot a bomb to US that's e or maybe toisrael the closest to me there , US says we are attacking Iran ok how about other Islamic staes. America fights Iran were as Ian was a bait for America to lose its momentum then other Islamic states boom strike. The wrong thing America is doing is they are now having an attitude of saying if it does not affect me it's not a problem but terrorists are gaining momentum. Boko haram for example, Isis, alshabab what measures is a strong nation having, considering that all these are saying America is bad. This deal should be stopped it's bad. This generation will ask for nuclear plants, next one asks to make weapons since maybe Russia seems to be a threat and the following ends up demanding a nuclear weapon. Who started this, only one simple request. Think about yourself with a telephone at home. You came and said now I want a telephone I can walk with ok you get it. Now from telephone to cellphone which I can talk to someone my loved ones for example. Now you have that not I want a cellphone with a color screen. From colour no I want one with a camera from camera now my phone is too slow I want speed from speed I want it fast on internet. Look where we started only on having a telephone I can walk around with look where we are with the cellphones. Very far Every thing big starts small. If not stopped Iran will be a nuclear terrorist

Consider Just the $100 Billion Factor for Iran

Considering Israel gets about $3 billion in military aid a year by the USA... if under this deal Iran gets over $100 billion unfrozen assets soon then Iran for a tiny fraction of that..give Hamas $6 billion and Hezbollah $6 billion thereby giving EACH of Israel enemies on the North AND the South DOUBLE the total military aid Israel receives in that year. Does that sound troublesome?

brilliant exposition of the problem

Dennis Prager made a wise, precise and concise exposition of the problems created by the Iran agreement. The comparison with the Munich fiasco was underpinned by strong arguments. Hopefully the members of the Congress will understand the terrible consequences their approval may have, in spite of the "good business with Iran" scenario in sight

I find this

mans comments extremely bogus on all points. His comparison of Iran to Nazis Germany is a stretch. He claims Hitler did not publicly state his intentions before the 1938 Munich Pact is a lie. he conveniently forgets Hitler's book which stated his intentions. #2 Iran does not have the military capability nor fighting ability of the Wehrmacht.#3 6 nations Iran have entered into agreement which tells me all 7 have considered their state interests.#4 Iran has not started a war with Israel and never joined any Arab coalition against Israel in any of her prior wars. #5 the young in Iran want peace and a future with economic possibilities.#6 America needs to keep her nose out of other countries affairs and take her of her own domestic issues. #7 Israel has nuclear weapons and is a powerful country and can take care of herself. This is not 1948.

The Worst Policy

The nuclear agreement is not only bad or good but the worst pact ever conceived! While negotiation was in progress, one could see the numerous protests taking place in Iran. Big banners displaying, "Kill the Americans" . The rest, you can deduce what hell would ensue.

Fools play

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I do't want to be a fool. I hope Congress does not choose to be the fool in this dangerous play.
