Iran Deal – for Cheap Oil?

Are we kidding now? Biden and props are socializing a new idea – what about this? Lift the Trump-Pompeo sanctions on Iran, forgive a breakout, pay Iran more tax dollars for ink, and get “peace for our time” and cheap oil. Sound like a plan? No, Mr. Chamberlain.

In September 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain had a brilliant idea. Meet with Hitler, take his word Czechoslovakia was the only aim, sign a peace accord, trust that ink, and declare “peace for our time.” Easy as that.

Within a year, Hitler had invaded Poland, hell broke loose. By May 1940, Mr. Chamberlain – already wobbly and quietly ill in 1938 – was dead. His peace accord did nothing for peace, trade, or the future of the free world.

Now, in a curious turn of events, knowing Iran’s radical Islamic leadership is anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Sunni, anti-peace – and that they are serial liars, treaty cheaters, and the world’s largest state sponsor of terror – Biden and his team want a peace accord? Why? For cheap Iranian oil.

Said John Kirby last week, Biden’s National Security Council spokesperson, a new Iran nuclear deal would have “positive knock-on effects” that include lower gas prices. Says Kirby, explaining why Secretary of State Blinken’s sidekick, Deputy Wendy Sherman wants an Iran deal for oil: “Well, look, I mean, there’s obviously a tangential, potentially tangential benefit,” if we drop sanctions for oil.

Said Sherman: “They would get sanctions relief…improve their economy and sell their oil again, and the world needs their oil, so they could get a good price for it.”

Simple as that – We just pretend Iran does not want nukes, dump those awful and effective Trump sanctions, empower Iran to terrorize the globe, and get cheap oil by election day. Make sense?

Hardly. Iran is suffering because “maximum economic pressure” was put on them, slowing their income, which supports nuclear weapons and missile development, terrorist groups, state-sponsored military terror, suppression of their people, instability across the region, Iraq and Syria to Saudi and Yemen.

If we lift all sanctions, get “peace for our time,” the downstream or “knock on” effects will be horrific.  Expect regional and global terror to spike, money to flow into nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, more domestic suppression, and the Middle East to commence an all-out nuclear weapons race, unlikely to end well.

Would the world market get slightly cheaper oil? Maybe and maybe not, but even assuming so, that means cheaper oil for US adversaries, too. How expensive is re-empowering radical Islamic Iran, to then run roughshod over US interests?   

How about another idea. Biden effectively clamped down on the largest part of the US energy sector, fossil fuels. He still has no answer for lost jobs and energy production, discovery, refining, transport, consumer access, and spiking costs for heating and cooling, gasoline, and “knock on” effects of 40-year-high inflation.

Here is another idea: How about a peace deal with America and average Americans, from Texas to Maine, all struggling to make it – under the equivalent of Biden sanctions or “maximum pressure” on Heartland America?

How about this: Drop the penalty on average Americans and the US energy sector you represent, give us back our energy independence, stop coddling and begging Iran, China, Venezuela, and others, and we will all pledge – not to produce nuclear weapons, spend our own tax dollars here, drive our cars to work, and not to underwrite instability, terrorism, and Mideast wars.

Sound like a deal? Are we really at a point…when Biden’s Iran nuclear deal, a license to cheat and take hard-earned US tax dollars, is back on the table – for cheaper oil? Maybe we should rethink this, maybe rethink the Biden Democrats?
