The Iranian regime is anti-Western and anti-Semitic. Can we really trust its nuclear deal?

It is often said that British ambition and influence in the world are on the wane. But there can be few greater demonstrations of this than our country’s lack of attention to one of the biggest issues of our time. I am in Washington at the moment, and have been admiring how intensely the Vienna negotiations have been on the political and news agendas here. But in Britain?

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Well, a couple of things:

  • Exile1981


  • Uh, no.

    Iran has not stopped enriching uranium.

    Did the powers that be forget that?

    At least the socialists in Canada can’t blame Harper for this.

  • Minicapt

    The Iranians will continue to lie, cheat and export violence as they have for the past 4 decades; we can trust them on this.


  • David Murrell

    Iran is anti-Western and anti-Semitic. This is why quislings Obama and Kerry support Iran so much. Obama support Iranian nuclear terrorism. This is his greatest moment.

    Britain is like a British car now. Sort of proud of what it used to represent but pretty much owned by the Chinese and Indians as they slap a new logo on the same old crap that’s always in the shop for one obscure reason or another. At one time the motto of the Royal Navy was “Make the World British”. Now it’s ‘would you like to buy our outsource manufactured missiles and farm equipment?’

    Iran for the last 10 years had never accepted a general inspections in their nuclear labs,why is that do they have the nuclears bombs or missiles?
