The Iran Nuclear Deal is the Right Deal--For Everyone

Opponents of the Iran deal are simply not using logic.  The deal, worked out between the leading nations in the world and Iran, provides the best assurance that Iran will not be able to develop a nuclear weapon.  More than that, it is the only option, short of war, to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

All known sites and sources will have automatic inspections.  That in itself is a quantum leap ahead of where we are now in limiting Iran's nuclear program.

Although Sen. Barbara Mikulski cast the 34th, veto-proof vote to support the deal, those Senators who opposed the bill (Republican and Democrat alike) should be noted and held accountable in their next election.  Sen. Schumer's opposition to the deal, for example, should disqualify him from the Democratic leadership post in the Senate.  ALL senators must do the right thing for America, no matter what the vote count.

Finally, many non-politicians (as well as politicians) in Israel support the deal.  They can see, logically, that their country gains a huge security advantage by having inspections.  They also know that if Iran should cheat, all of the options that we have now to deal with Iran are still available.
