Senators Introduce Sanctions Bill to Break Iran Deal

26 senators made a stand against President Obama, and when it becomes clear the President was duped, the bill’s sponsors will say, “Told you so.”

26 senators made a stand against President Obama, and when it becomes clear the President was duped, the bill’s sponsors will say, “Told you so.”

Senators from both the Democratic and Republican parties introduced a bill on Thursday that would toughen sanctions on Iran and effectively squash the interim deal between the major Western powers and Iran. The deal has been ridiculed by many as appeasement in return for a nuclear bomb.

Republican Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois said the bill’s proposals for a worldwide boycott on Iranian oil exports and blacklisting the country’s mining industries are “an insurance policy to defend against Iranian deception.”

Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey said, “Current sanctions brought Iran to the negotiating table and a credible threat of future sanctions will require Iran to cooperate and act in good faith at the negotiating table.”

In the unlikely event that the Senate defies President Barack Obama and passes the bill, and the House of Representatives goes along for the ride, it would render the deal null and void because of the negotiators’ promise that no new sanctions would be introduced before the end of talks for a final deal in six months.

The bill also states, “If the government of Israel is compelled to take military action in legitimate self-defense against Iran’s nuclear weapon program, the United States government should stand with Israel” with diplomatic, military and economic support.”

The 26 senators who introduced the deal basically made a stand against President Obama, and when the time comes that it is clear that the President and the leaders of the major powers were duped, the bill’s sponsors can say, “We told you so.”

But that won’t be of much help to Israel.

  1. I think the Iranian nuke deal is abysmal and I hope that we all don't wake up to two suns in the sky some morning and a permanent orange afro. A simple "we told you so" won't even be possible. The agreement with Iran makes it clear that Iran will continue to enrich uranium, and I doubt that Israel can actually take such a big chance. With all of this volatility if anything should go wrong the war written about in Isaiah 17 may take place. Many will die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. I believe the movement for a 1 world government would then kick into high gear. We all know about the pressure for a 1 world currency and for world peace; now the Pope is even a proponent for a new economic system. A new world order is just a matter of time. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read.
