The Biden Administration is once again attempting to blame the Trump Administration for Iran’s nuclear progress, despite the fact that the Obama-era Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a flawed deal that only served to line the pockets of the murderous regime. According to recent reports, Iran has exceeded the limit of enriched uranium permitted under the JCPOA by more than 18 times. During his testimony to the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, Colin Kahl, the Defense Under Secretary for Policy, stated that it would only take Iran approximately twelve days to generate enough fissile material for a single nuclear weapon.

The International Atomic Energy Agency’s recent assessments revealed that Iran has enriched a portion of its uranium reserves to 84 percent, which is only a small margin away from the 90 percent needed for creating fissile material for a nuclear weapon. Despite this worrisome development, the Biden Administration persists in seeking diplomatic solutions with Iran, despite concerns that the regime is employing negotiations as a cover to advance its nuclear aspirations.
The Biden Administration’s approach to the potential nuclear threat from Iran appears to lack seriousness. Despite the U.S. State Department’s acknowledgment that Iran has exploited prolonged and unproductive negotiations to escalate its nuclear pursuits, the administration has spent years attempting to broker a new agreement with Iran.
While the Biden Administration continues to engage in negotiations, Israel is taking a more serious approach to the potential threat of a nuclear Iran. Israel’s Strategic Affairs Minister, Ron Dermer, and National Security Council chief, Tzachi Hanegbi, are scheduled to visit Washington early next week to discuss the progress of Iran’s nuclear program and urge the adoption of international measures to deter its nuclear ambitions, according to the Jerusalem Post.
The situation is highly alarming, especially considering the strengthening relationships among Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea. Adding to the concern is the fact that Joe Biden, who has mishandled several international incidents and failed to project the United States as a strong deterrent to rogue nations, is leading the U.S. response to this situation.
It is outrageous that the Biden Administration is attempting to blame the Trump Administration for Iran’s nuclear progress, when it is clear that they have done nothing to stop it. The Biden Administration has failed to take any meaningful action to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and it is time for them to take decisive action before it is too late. The United States must take a strong stance against Iran’s nuclear ambitions and make it clear that we will not tolerate any attempts by them to acquire a nuclear weapon.
