Secretary of State John Kerry's pronouncement that the newly inked nuclear pact with Iran "will make the world safer" is likely to prove as accurate as Woodrow Wilson's declaration that "World War I was the war to end all wars." Grounded in wishful thinking and ignoring reality, the deal is far more likely to advance global insecurity than security.
While Iran has promised to reduce its uranium enrichment program in exchange for the gradual lifting of economic sanctions, it will retain most of its nuclear infrastructure and its ability to develop a nuclear weapon -- which the ayatollah has repeatedly threatened to use to destroy Israel. This dangerous game of smoke and mirrors has prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to begin talks with the leaders of Saudi Arabia and other neighboring countries about possible pre-emptive strikes on Iran's nuclear sites.
While the Obama administration is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve any semblance of peace, Israel is refusing to pay the price. If President Obama is right about nothing else, he best be right about this deal with the devil. He won't get a second chance, and neither will the American people.
