Candidates’ Stand on the Nuclear Peace Treaty with Iran

WHTT Editor: The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs provides the stated position of each candidate for President on the nuclear peace treaty with Iran.  Have you wondered why so many candidate are raising $$ millions, 15 months before the presidential elections?  We do, and we recall that the losing candidates do not have to give the leftover funds back! And, they have plenty of options  how they may use it, this in the age of $100 Million campaigns!  And, could this be why so many are appealing to the $ multi-billion war lobby, by swearing they will vote against the nuclear peace treaty?  Mike Huckabee is in Israel to raises funds; talk about role reversal!

Washington Report : Where Do They Stand on Iran (Click on link for full story.)

“The nuclear accord reached between Iran and the international community in July has unsurprisingly become a source of much discussion on the presidential campaign trail. All 17Republican candidates have announced their opposition to the deal, while one Democrat—former Sen. Jim Webb—has also come out against the agreement.

Opponents of the deal have been tripping over each other to establish their anti-Iran credentials. This has resulted in a barrage of eye-opening and misleading statements.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has said the deal ‘will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.’ Texas Sen. Ted Cruz charged that it will result in the Obama administration becoming “the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world.’ Neurosurgeon-turned-politician Ben Carson said the White House has negotiated ‘perhaps the worst deal in the history of America.’ Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has vowed to terminate the deal on his first day in office.
