(RepublicanInformer.com)- President Joe Biden’s capitulations to Iran have so far not worked, with Secretary of State Antony Blink revealing on Monday that it’s still unclear whether Iran is willing to do what is necessary to come back into compliance with the failed 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal, or “Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.”
Under President Donald Trump’s administration, economic sanctions were used to cripple Iran and force the country to ultimately stop its nuclear energy and weapons program. The country, which is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, was slowly being forced to end the program during the Trump administration but ever since President Biden has been in the White House, the Islamist state has been more empowered than ever to make as much progress as it can before being forced to re-enter the Nuclear Deal.
Speaking to lawmakers on Monday, Blinken said that Iran’s nuclear program is “galloping forward” and that the longer this goes on, the more the “breakout time gets down.”
It means that Iran could be on the verge of developing a nuclear weapon, and that’s in part because the country knows it can get a deal with the United States at any point in the future.
Indirect talks between the United States and Iran began in April, with allies to the United States pushing Iran to think about returning to compliance. However, the terrorist state refused to come back into compliance with the agreement until the United States removes all Trump-era sanctions on the country.
The last round of talks ended on June 2 and further talks could begin this week, but that remains unclear.
On June 18, Iranians will go to the polls, meaning an agreement at this stage appears somewhat unlikely.
According to public records, Iran is only a few months away from developing a nuclear weapon, but the rate at which progress has been increasing it may realistically only be a matter of weeks.
This is one of those times where President Joe Biden really should admit that President Trump was right – because it looks like he just gave Iran the room it needed to develop nuclear weapons.
The negotiations at this point are therefore likely to change.
