(TheConservativeNews.org) – Iran’s nuclear program may be the most significant foreign policy issue currently facing the Biden administration. By withdrawing from Obama’s nuclear deal with the Middle-Eastern aggressor, former President Donald Trump managed to suppress their development capabilities. However, Biden has indicated he would consider rejoining the deal, leaving the progress Trump made in real jeopardy.
On Thursday, March 18, Iran’s Defense Minister, Brigadier General Amir Hatami, discussed the administration’s ongoing commitment to the development of a viable nuclear weapon. Speaking during a meeting with senior officials, he went on to say progress had been made in this area, despite sanctions. He also mentioned that the military had achieved its goals for the year (the Persian calendar ends on March 20).
Rhetoric like this is of grave concern to American leaders. Rep. David Joyce (R-OH) has been outspoken on the issue. Along with 139 other lawmakers, he wrote to Secretary of State Antony Blinken demanding an effective bipartisan strategy for dealing with Iran last week.
Whether or not Joe Biden wants to acknowledge it, this problem isn’t going away. The president needs to prioritize the nation’s security over party politics on this issue.
