Sen. Lindsey Graham ➠ Iranians Don’t Respect Or Fear ‘Weak & Indecisive’ Obama
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) joined Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures” to weigh in on the latest negotiations with Iran over the country’s nuclear program.
Graham said that he does not want to lift any sanctions on Iran until they have fully complied with anytime-anywhere inspections at any military or non-military facilities and also until it is certain that Iran is no longer a state supporter of terrorism.
“I would love to have a good deal to end the nuclear ambitions of the Iranians, but I don’t trust the Iranians. They’ve been lying and cheating,” Graham said. “And if they’re able to get a nuclear capability, then the Sunni Arabs will want one in kind and you have a nuclear arms race in the Mid-East. That’s the biggest consequence of a bad deal.”
Graham asserted that Iran has shared every one of the weapons they’ve developed with terrorists and he fears that they would do the same thing with a nuclear weapon.
Graham added that President Obama will be unable to get the best deal with Iran because he’s “weak and indecisive,” and the Iranians don’t respect or fear him.
He said that if a good deal can’t be struck now, then we should wait and let the next president deal with the Iranians.
“Unless the Iranians believe that the military option is really on the table, you’re never going to get a good deal out of the Iranians,” Graham said.
