Some experts believe a nuclear deal is imminent under the Biden administration. This agreement would certainly fail for various reasons.
Deal won't stop Iran from getting a bomb
US Special Envoy to Iran Robert Malley recognizes that the Iran deal will allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapons by 2031. Israel's Defense Minister Benny Gantz and 5,000 senior Israeli military officials agree with Malley's view. What's the deal's aim if Iran can get a bomb?
Iran's own statements should show malice. An aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently revealed that Iran has the "technical competence" to produce a nuclear bomb, contradicting Iran's long-held position that its nuclear aims are benign. A video uploaded on two IRGC-linked Telegram accounts said Iran's ballistic missiles can "ruin New York." Why trust this accord will bring peace with Iran?
Deal undermines nuclear nonproliferation
According to the Israeli letter, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and other Sunni states would seek nuclear weapons to fight Iran. This is valid. China may develop a nuclear processing facility in Saudi Arabia in 2020 to help make yellowcake.
According to a 2013 BBC piece, Saudi Arabia has invested extensively in Pakistan's nuclear program and potentially order nuclear weapons from there. Amos Yadlin, a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, is quoted as saying, "The Saudis will not wait one month. They paid for the bomb and will deliver it to Pakistan. South Korea and Russia just agreed to build Egypt a $2.25 billion nuclear power plant. Since 2020, the UAE's first nuclear power facility has been online. Iran has threatened the UAE and funds attacks through proxies. If Iran develops nuclear weapons, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the UAE may follow.
Deal unfreezes terror funds
According to an Israeli letter, Iran will use unfrozen cash to finance terrorists worldwide. In a letter to President Biden, House Republicans and Democrats estimate that sanctions release will cost $1 trillion over 10 years and allow Iran to "pose a significant danger to Americans at home and abroad, and to our allies."
Russia benefits from the deal
The House letter says Russia will benefit from this pact. Russia can enrich Iran's uranium under the pact. Russia will review Iran's compliance with the accord, not the US or Europe. Russia will acquire $10 billion (likely from Iran) to build Iran's nuclear infrastructure.
The existing Iran nuclear deal will be a foreign policy loss for the U.S. The deal won't stop Iran from getting a bomb, will erode nuclear containment in the area, will support terror worldwide, and will benefit Russia. Despite these issues, the Biden administration pursues this arrangement.
