60. Without the deal, Iran could get a bomb within a few months

They already have enough enriched uranium for 10 bombs -- and Netanyahu said they were 3 months from a bomb when he spoke at the UN in 2012 - before the negotiations froze their development. If the deal fails, that is where they are NOW.

It is really hard to believe that you are worried about a possible bomb 10 or 15 years from now, but don't see the problem NOW. What do you think will happen if there is no deal that will prevent this.

A unicorn deal that Iran will magically agree to?

Secondary sanctions on all countries that deal with Iran as Schumer suggests - without mentioning these countries could include France, Germany, Italy, UK etc That should work. Not to mention, sanctions did NOT work to halt progress on a bomb, they did harm Iran and brought them to the table. Incidentally, Schumer spoke of secondary sanctions because he knows that the other countries and the UN's sanctions would be lifted. His idea is arrogant and full of chutzpah. The rest of the world would react to this -- and it will hurt us.

War -- which the opponents say is unfair to mention -- so, maybe I should say "military action" which somehow does not lead to war .... and which Israeli sources say would push Iran back 3 to 5 years. 10 years, with no military action, sounds pretty good.
