German Chancellor Angela Merkel won thunderous applause at the Munich Security Conference today with globalist comments supporting retaining the ‘Iran Deal’ put together by the Obama administration and for suggesting the United States keep its troops in Syria. The hypocrisy was astounding as the globalist elites in Europe called for America to continue to send its men and women into harms way as Germany cedes its energy security to Moscow with construction of the Nord Stream II pipeline and spends little on its own defense. European support for the ‘Iran Deal’ stems from its desire to reap financial profits from Tehran’s government and caring little about Iran’s export of terror and its often stated desire to destroy the Jewish State.
“I see the ballistic missile program, I see Iran in Yemen and above all I see Iran in Syria,” she said. “The only question that stands between us on this issue is, do we help our common cause, our common aim of containing the damaging or difficult development of Iran, by withdrawing from the one remaining agreement? Or do we help it more by keeping the small anchor we have in order maybe to exert pressure in other areas?” she asked reported Associated Press.
In her speech, Merkel also questioned whether it was a good idea for the U.S. to withdraw troops quickly from Syria “or is that not also strengthening the possibilities for Iran and Russia to exert influence there?” wrote AP.
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence was having none of it as he pushed by strongly stating, “The time has come for our European partners to stop undermining U.S. sanctions against this murderous revolutionary regime,” Pence said. “The time has come for our European partners to stand with us and with the Iranian people, our allies and friends in the region. The time has come for our European partners to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
