Any deal with Iran is a bad deal, because the mullahs can’t be trusted.
- A nuclear deal with Iran would be grounded in ongoing rigorous inspections and verification mechanisms – not trust. It is those rigorous inspections and verification mechanisms that would ensure that Iran lived up to its end of a deal.
- Should Iran interfere with those inspections and verification mechanisms, or should those inspections and verification mechanisms reveal Iranian malfeasance, the international community would know immediately and have ample opportunity to prepare its response.
- Without an agreement, those rigorous inspections and verification mechanisms would be absent. The international community, recognizing that Iran cannot be trusted, would be left to worry and try to come up with policies and actions based on incomplete information.
- Even with an agreement in place, the U.S. and international community will doubtless prepare and maintain contingency plans to address the possibility that Iran will renege on the deal – including planning for military action.
