YES WE CAN Fight Iran Option!

Former Top IDF Intel Officer: Military Strike Could Thwart Iranian Nuclearization for Good

Brig. Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser wrote that a military strike against Iran would inflict significant damage on Iran's nuclear program and thwart its weapons ambitions


Congress could pass a bill to reauthorize sanctions

Every state and firm considering business opportunities with Tehran will have to weigh them against the opportunity cost of being barred from doing business with the US.

·       Reps. Grace Meng (D-Queens) and Lee Zeldin (R-LI), members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, wrote in the N.Y. Post that Congress should vote to approve bunker buster bombs for Israel. 

·       House and Senate Members should pass a concurrent resolution deeming that for Congress's internal purposes, the Iran deal is a treaty that requires a two thirds vote to pass.

The Iran deal includes secret side-agreements the Obama administration appears to have deliberately withheld from Congress. That move is a prima facie violation of Corker-Cardin….

·      Congress can condition the Iran deal's legal stature on the passage of enabling legislation – that requires simple majorities in both houses.  Dan Darling, foreign policy adviser to … Rand Paul wrote Monday that senators can use Senate procedure to force the Foreign Relations Committee to act in this manner.   

·      State legislatures can pass their own sanctions against Iran.  An executive agreement, unlike a treaty, is not binding on the states.  This would apply only to state business and pension fund investment.

At the end of the day, the problem with the Democrats in Congress is that they have not been hearing from their constituents.  Will this change in the last few weeks?

The most powerful voices lobbying against the deal have been coming from the military.

Obama could only get 36 retired US generals to sign a petition in favor of his 'deal.'  This week, a group of five citizen volunteers in a few days got a letter signed by 190 US generals and admirals that will be handed to every member in Congress.  The letter reads in part:

In our judgment as former senior military officers, the agreement will not have that effect (preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons).  Removing sanctions on Iran and releasing billions of dollars to its regime over the next ten years is inimical to the security of Israel and the Middle East.  There is no credibility within JCPOA's inspection process or the ability to snap back sanctions once lifted, should Iran violate the agreement. In this and other respects, the JCPOA would threaten the national security and vital interests of the United States and, therefore, should be disapproved by the Congress. 

The agreement as constructed does not "cut off every pathway" for Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.  To the contrary, it actually provides Iran with a legitimate path to doing that simply by abiding by the deal.

…The agreement is unverifiable.  Under the terms of the JCPOA and a secret side deal (to which the United States is not privy), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will be responsible for inspections under such severe limitations as to prevent them from reliably detecting Iranian cheating.

It's not just generals.  American vets are speaking out about the Iran capitulation.  In some states, they have been helped with organizing and funding to produce very moving videos.  This can and should be done in every state with traitorous Democrat Congressman.


From Hakeem Jeffries meeting Brighton Beach  http://shemittahrediscovered.blogspot.com/2015/08/2nd-town-meeting-with-hakeem-jeffries.html


Jeffries himself repeatedly stated that Israel lives in a tough neighborhood and he knows that the only language these guys respect is coming from a position of strength. I think that we need to do a more convincing job in presenting the military option coupled with crippling Banking sanctions by the US as the only option to stop IRAN. It was Jeffries himself over the course of the evening who actually spoke of these options.  Jeffries said that America has the capability to surgically take out the weapons buried deep in the mountains via MOP and Satellite GPS Technology. Capabilities that America did not have previously.  I googled MOP and came up with this interview with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter .  http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/10/politics/ash-carter-iran-north-korea-isis-al-qaeda/ 

Is the military option still on the table?
Carter said that the current framework for a deal with Iran does not take the military option off the table but added that it will currently not be used.
"We have the capability to shut down, set back and destroy the Iranian nuclear program and I believe the Iranians know that and understand that," he said, referencing the military's most powerful ground-penetrating bomb, the Massive Ordinance Penetrator (MOP).
The MOP -- which can explode 200 feet underground and is designed to destroy deeply buried and fortified targets -- is ready for use, Carter said.

Jeffries said that the reason the military option is not an option according to the Administration is because they believe if America goes that route it will trigger rockets raining over Israel, Tel Aviv and Haifa.  

My thoughts at the time was,  surely that is something Israel would wish to avoid as well.  According to Congressman Jeffries, there is still a very strong working relationship with American and Israeli Intelligence. Surely they can work together and figure out how to counteract this potential threat that comes coupled with a military option of striking Iran's nuclear facilities.  What came to mind was that surely those who were being taken to Auschwitz crematoria in the Cattle Cars would  have supported American air strikes bombing the train tracks to Auschwitz even if they were in direct line of fire.  One needs to look at the bigger picture!

Jeffries also, over the course of the evening said that from talking to banking experts, there are clearly  ways via the American banking system to also "attack" countries who are presently trying to do business with Iran.  Now that there are billions of released assets due to sanctions relief we need to somehow stop the flow of business deals which serve to empower and resupply Iran and terrorists with conventional weapons. But he also mentioned that since America has a high debt to countries like China and Japan, that limits us.  

Sincerely,

Robin Ticker
