No country should do businesses with people who do business with terrorists. This is an obvious truth that shouldn’t even need to be stated.
Yet that is exactly what the Obama administration wanted to do when it signed the treasonous Iran Deal.
Not only is Iran the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, they also lied in order to get the Iran deal passed.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed in documents last week that Iran was continuing to develop its nuclear weapons program, explicitly defying the rules of the agreement.
But the left turned a blind eye to this traitourous behavior, as did the European countries who also signed on to the Iran deal.
National Security Advisor John Bolton is having none of that, and when pressed by CNN’s Jake Tapper on the issue, Bolton bluntly stated what the U.S. is prepared to do to stop this deal dead in its tracks.
Bolton appears to think that these European countries will withdraw from the Iran Deal on their own, before the threat of sanctions needs to be carried out. Bolton’s direct and tough approach is similar to that of the president, and has become a hallmark of the Trump administration.
The days of kicking the can down the road are over now that we have a foreign policy team determined to undo the damage of the Obama administration.
Obama allowed the world’s dictators to walk all over us, but with this show of strength, these dictators are now learning that the United States will no longer play nice with those who wish us harm. This approach worked with North Korea, and it will work in Iran, provided other countries fall in line.
The European Union needs to understand that they can’t have it both ways. They can either trade with us, or have fun paying the price of doing business with the radical ayatollah’s in Iran.
