The world is a “matter of weeks” away from a rogue Islamic regime in Iran that could have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon.
That’s according to U.S. special envoy for Iran Robert Malley, according to a report from Israel365News.
It was in an interview with National Public Radio that Malley said the most recent attempt to revive talks between the Biden administration, which has been desperate for the Iran nuclear deal to be restored, and the Islamists, was a waste.
The talks were “more than a little bit of a wasted occasion,” the report explained.
He said the U.S. had offered a comprehensive package of deal components to Iran, but that nation refused to agree.
“The European Union—in its role as coordinator—wanted to try one more effort, at least one more effort, and so they invited both delegations [from Iran and the United States] to meet them in Doha in the hope that Iranians would show something, some willingness to get to yes,” said Malley, the American negotiating team leader.
But Iran simply could not provide answers.
He said the discussions that are needed right now are between Iran and itself – to pick what they are willing to do to return to the agreement originally orchestrated by Barack Obama and John Kerry.
That included the delivery of billions of dollars of American cash to the Islamic regime. And the deal originally only delayed that nation’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon.
President Donald Trump took the U.S. out of the agreement after evaluating it and finding no benefit to America.
Biden has struggled since he took office to find a way to wind back the clock and impose the agreement again.
WND reported only weeks ago that a watchdog’s report on the status of Iran’s nuclear operations is a “damning” condemnation of Biden’s “obsession” with restoring the Iran nuclear deal, according to the Defense and Foreign Affairs editor at the Telegraph, Con Coughlin, who also is a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Gatestone Institute.
Barack Obama, with Joe Biden then as vice president, dreamed up the strategy to pay Iran billions of dollars in return for a promise about its level of nuclear weapons activity.
However, President Trump dumped it while he was in office, explaining the “deal” really provided no benefit to America, and Iran wasn’t following it anyway.
Now Coughlin has cited an assessment from the International Atomic Energy Agency that Tehran “continues to defy Washington by converting some of its uranium stockpiles to near weapons-grade, thereby greatly enhancing the regime’s ability to produce nuclear warheads.”
He warned, “The utter futility of the Biden administration’s obsession with reviving the Iran nuclear deal has been laid bare by the latest damning assessment” by the IAEA.
He explained Biden wants to rejoin the deal if Iran comes back into compliance with the original Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
“That would require Iran to accept the limits imposed on its stockpiles of nuclear material by the JCPOA instead of continuing with its efforts to produce weapons-grade material,” Coughlin wrote.
But the IAEA has said even as that’s not happening, Biden continues to try to develop a strategy to regain the “deal,” even though now Iran has demanded, too, that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps be delisted from the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization list.
Fox News reported that it was in an open letter to Biden that 46 retired U.S. generals and admirals warned against doing the deal, again.
They wrote, “In Ukraine, we are bearing witness to the horrors of a country ruthlessly attacking its neighbor and, by brandishing its nuclear weapons, forcing the rest of the world largely to stand on the sidelines. The new Iran deal currently being negotiated, which Russia has played a central role in crafting, will enable the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism to cast its own nuclear shadow over the Middle East.”
The letter was written in coordination with the Jewish Institute for National Security of America.
The military leaders said the result of Biden’s agenda could be to weaken America’s position to hold Iran accountable for its terrorism.
Technically, reports that Iran continued to deploy ballistic missiles that were capable of carrying a nuclear warhead triggered America’s withdrawal.
No deal is better than a bad deal, explained retired Air Force Gen. Charles Wald, who used to be deputy commander of U.S, European Command.
