The US Ambassador to the United Nations is touting the nuclear deal with Iran, while a former presidential candidate says it is exacerbating the collapse of the USA’s global leadership:
September 25, 2015
The Iran nuclear deal is a prize for the champions of diplomacy – an “exemplar,” in the words of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, which “heartened” the rest of the world. …
A band of Democrats emerged from the Iran process beating the drum for diplomacy in the name of strengthening the U.S. relationship with new and existing allies. Many senators pointed to briefings and conversations with the P5+1 foreign ambassadors who brokered the deal as pivotal to realizing that without international partners, the U.S. would be left, weakened, on its own.
For some of those Democrats, the deal’s success is a cue to aim even higher.
“This multilateral framework can serve as a model of how the U.S. should lead, not only in the Middle East, but around the world,” Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) said in a speech at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace late last week. …
Republicans warned that the United States made a bad deal not only because they don’t trust Iran, but they’re also waryof negotiating with countries like Russia, China, and even Europe — arguing their interests run counter to the U.S.when it comes to Iran’s future.
The Iran deal “will likely exacerbate the collapse of America’s global influence that is taking place under this administration,” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) wrote in a recent op-ed in the Arizona Daily Star.
In last week’s GOP presidential debate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) warned that Obama “wants to use the United Nations to bind the United States and take away our sovereignty.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2015/09/25/could-the-iran-deal-be-multilateralisms-moment-if-only-congress-were-ready/
It should be noted that leaders in Iran have repeatedly called for the elimination of the tiny nation of Israel. Here are two report that demonstrate this:

Nuclear deal or no nuclear deal with President Obama, Iran says Israel will be destroyed.
Ataollah Salehi, commander of Iran’s army, told Iran’s state-run news agency on Tuesday Israel’s fate is sealed.
“Israel only barks, no matter how much weapons are given to [it], we are going to destroy them, we will promise this task will be done,” the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. “We are glad that we are in the forefront of executing supreme leader’s order to destroy the Zionist regime. They have been hit by those supported by us [Iran] even though they have not confronted us directly; if they confront us directly they will be destroyed.”
Saeed Ghasseminejad, an Iran expert and associate fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the paper Iran will become more aggressive because it sees the Obama administration as weak.
“Iran’s military establishment neither fears nor respects the U.S. anymore,” Ghasseminejad told the Washington Free Beacon. “The U.S. faces a credibility problem in the region; the problem will be there as long as President Obama is in office.” http://www.wnd.com/2015/09/iran-nuke-deal-wont-prevent-israels-destruction/#qGbbTdbLSDqYCvp3.99
(CNN)Israel will not exist in another quarter century, Iran’s supreme leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said during a speech this week in Tehran, state-run media report.
“I’d say (to Israel) that they will not see (the end) of these 25 years,” the Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Khamenei as saying Wednesday at the Imam Khomeini Mosque.
Khamenei raised the issue while discussing the recent nuclear deal between Iran and the so-called P5+1 — the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia…
Some of the agreement’s measures will remain in place for 25 years. Seizing on that time frame, Khamenei noted that some observers say it should allay Israel’s fears about a nuclear Iran during that time.
“God willing, there will be no such thing as a Zionist regime in 25 years. Until then, struggling, heroic and jihadi morale will leave no moment of serenity for Zionists,” he said… http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/10/middleeast/iran-khamenei-israel-will-not-exist-25-years/
The reality is that after Iran gets much, or all of its frozen assets, it will have little incentive to comply with the deal. But Iran could use some of that money to trade with the Europeans as well as others. Some believe that Iran will be better able to fund terrorism with the funds that are expected to be released. Israel realizes this.
The nuclear deal also lifts most trade sanctions against Iran, which should also assist it financially. Iran already expects to greatly increase its oil exports by the end of 2015: ... Read full article
