The quote above was spoken by retired Army General Michael Flynn; this reported by a Reuters story.
According to a report replaced by Washington think tank, the Institute for Science and International Security, the Obama administration and other European governments acted in secret to let Iran keep more of its enriched uranium so that sanctions could be lifted on time. The Obama administration (of course) denies this.
Specifically the report says,
“Among the exemptions outlined in the think tank’s report were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium.”
The Reuters article also states,
“It’s now clear President Obama gave away the store to secure a weak agreement that is full of loopholes.”
If the nuclear deal was bad before, how much worse might it truly be? One of Iran’s touted pathways to the bomb that was “blocked” was limiting the amount of uranium and heavy water at its nuclear facilities.
The article goes on to say that one senior US government official said that if the governments had not acted in secret, “Some of Iran’s nuclear facilities would not have been in compliance with the deal by Jan. 16, the deadline for the beginning of the lifting of sanctions.” So what if Iran doesn’t have its sanctions lifted “on time”?
This touches on, I believe, a major enabler for Iran to run out and invade the Middle East just like Daniel 8:3-4 says. Just as China and Russia will allow it because it benefits them, so too the West will allow it. Western leaders, especially the leader of the free world, have this delusional view of reality in their heads and so will orchestrate events commensurate with those erroneous views. Those who are to be destroyed really are made mad first.
