As the United States gets set to lift sanctions from Iran this week, two statements from our political leaders present a real juxtaposition in the way Liberals and Conservatives view Iran, its nuclear ambitions and whether or not we should trust them.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is full of unbridled optimism as he praises both the deal and Iran, while Conservative leader Rona Ambrose is warning Trudeau and the world to be cautious, to trust but verify.
Trudeau hails what he views as a victory for quiet diplomacy and thinks it’s all great. Ambrose on the other hand sounds like the government she was part of which said that while they welcomed the deal, Iran’s track record was not very good and the world should proceed with caution.
Trudeau sees the world through rose coloured glasses.
This is not a deal to cheer but a deal to fear. This deal wasn’t negotiated by Canada but by our closest ally so I can understand Trudeau wanting to put the best face on the situation but he does more than that in praising the deal without even a word of caution.
I don’t know what the release of these billions will mean for Iran’s nuclear program but I feel certain that this money will fall on Israel and other innocents in the form of bombs - bombs bought and paid for with money Iran got because sanctions were lifted by those who naively believe in the power of “Sunny Ways”.
I hope I’m wrong just as much as I am sure Justin Trudeau is naïve.
