An American analyst believes that US politicians do not care about another global war as they insist to cancel the conclusion of nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers.
David Christie, a broadcast journalist based in New York, said US politicians, including Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, who criticize the nuclear agreement, are more concerned about Israel.
“For GOP senators and congressmen, what Israel wants is their guiding principle and that trumps the safety and security of America for Americans every time,” Christie told Press TV on Sunday.
“If anybody is confused about the current hostile and predictable rhetoric that is the trademark scripted hereto by all politicians in Washington, they are failing to understand the one singular and inviolable requirement for being in the Washington establishment, and that is thou shalt never criticize Israel or do anything that offends them no matter what,” he added.
Christie also said that such measures would not be interrupted even if they lead to American people’s “bankruptcy” or “World War III” for the human race.
Santorum had called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and the P5+1 group of nations “the greatest betrayal of American national security in our history.”
Santorum said Iranians were not to be trusted on the agreement.
The former senator is not the only candidate, who opposes the agreement, and threatens to revoke any accord with Iran if he succeeds Obama as the next president of the United States in 2016.
Santorum also took a jab at his fellow Republicans who lack the courage to take on Obama’s policies.
"They are so afraid to fight," he added. "They have now decided that the only way to survive is to go along with him."
President Barack Obama has come under fire from Tel Aviv following the recent nuclear breakthrough with Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly criticized Obama.
The JCPOA is currently undergoing scrutiny in Congress. American lawmakers have a 60-days period to review the deal and approve it. Congress will need a two-thirds majority to cancel the agreement.
