Wow: Allen West Just Tore Apart Obama’s Iran Deal Piece By Piece

In response to Barack Obama’s nearly hour-long speech Wednesday at American University, former U.S. Rep. Allen West penned an editorial dissecting the unpopular Iran nuclear deal Obama used his address to defend.

While Obama claimed that the current agreement builds on America’s “tradition of strong, principled policy diplomacy,” West pegged it as an unmistakable display of weakness.

“The bottom line,” West wrote, “is that Obama wants us to get on board with his desire to support a weak, acquiescing agreement with the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism.”

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel went on eviscerate the deal for its lack of definable metrics by which to gauge Iranian compliance.

“And we’re supposed to thank Obama for allowing Iran to have the weapons embargoes for conventional weapons and ballistic missiles,” he continued “—and in ten years all of Iran’s centrifuges will enrich uranium at full capacity – as if we’d ever know if they weren’t already.”

West went on to lament Obama’s willingness to submit to the United Nations’ will and his apparent ignorance of the very history he cited in his speech.

“Barack Obama invoked the memory of President John F. Kennedy,” he explained, “who spoke at American University on nuclear disarmament. Obama failed to realize that Kennedy dispatched the U.S. Navy to Cuba. Under Obama we don’t even have a replacement Carrier Battle Group (CVBG) in place in the Persian Gulf.”

West concluded that Obama “is a manipulative deceiver whose foreign policy is rooted in the debasing and neutering of America before our enemies.”

It is the weakening of the U.S., he concluded – along with the corresponding chaos throughout the Middle East – that will ultimately be recognized as Obama’s legacy.

Watch: Allen West Just Said ‘Obama Suicide’ Image Shows Absurdity Of Iran Nuke Deal

Even as Secretary of State John Kerry and other Obama surrogates were frantically making the rounds in an effort to build support for the president’s Iran nuke deal, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran was blatantly mocking Obama and insulting the United States.

Ayatollah Khamenei reportedly sent out a provocative tweet showing an image of President Obama putting a handgun to his own head. According to Fox News, this was in response to the president saying the United States could still use military force if the nuclear deal with Tehran fails to stop Iran’s production of the bomb.

On Fox and Friends Weekend, Lt. Col. Allen West slammed the Obama administration for entering into an agreement that helps Iran become both an economic and a military power while the Middle East nation continues to threaten and belittle the United States, as well as Israel.

“This is all about the psychological warfare of mocking the United States of America, mocking President Obama, and then of course embarrassing our country,” West told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

WATCH: Angry Allen West Unleashes EPIC Attack On ‘Weakling’ Obama For A ‘Damn Stupid’ Deal

“The United States of America is about victors. The United States of America is about champions. The United States of America does not surrender to a bunch of black-robed, crazed clerics that want to see us destroyed.” With red-hot, red-meat rhetoric like that, retired Lt. Col. Allen West fired up a huge crowd that assembled in New York City’s Times Square on Wednesday to protest the Obama-led Iran nuke deal.

Far from presenting himself as the soft-spoken political commentator you often see on Fox News, the former congressman from Florida delivered a highly-charged rant that was highly critical of a president whom West called a “weakling” and a “charlatan.”

Regarding the attack on two U.S. military installations in Chattanooga that left five servicemen dead, West didn’t mince words in addressing the current investigation about whether the Muslim attacker might have been a drug-afflicted young man suffering from depression.

“Hell, no, he was a dadgum terrorist, that’s what he was!” West asserted to the crowd’s approving roar.

“How dare Barack Obama, how dare John Kerry, how dare Valerie Jarrett, or any of these other charlatans that occupy Washington, D.C., surrender this great constitutional republic…?” West’s seven-minute speech to the crowd estimated at some 10,000 anti-nuke deal protestors was full of both passion and powerful criticisms of the Obama administration.

By clicking on the video above, you can watch the fiery speech by the retired Army officer who once again proudly showed his true colors as he declared his unwavering commitment to making sure that “the enemies of America and the enemies of Israel are crushed and brought to their knees” — something he said the Obama administration is clearly failing to do.

Chelsea Manning Is Now On Twitter

Chelsea Manning, convicted nearly two years ago in the WikiLeaks scandal when she was known as Bradley Manning, has set up a Twitter account and will be sending messages “weekly to daily” from prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

The former Army private first class was convicted in August 2013 of violating several parts of the Espionage Act, copying and disseminating classified military field reports and U.S. State Department cables–mostly related to detainees of prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba–noted The Washington Post.

According to American military officials, the leak committed by Manning was the largest of its kind in history.

In February, Manning received approval for hormone therapy to transition from a man to a woman from Col. Erica Nelson, commandant of the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth. Manning legally changed her name last April, according to The Telegraph.

On Friday, Agence-France Presse (AFP) reported that the convict who is now presenting herself as a female now is now tweeting from the handle @xychelsea.

She clarified that access to the Internet will not be available to her in prison, and will be using an outside source to send her messages.

Manning has over 44,000 followers as of this publishing. Former Republican Congressman and retired Col. Allen West of Florida was not too happy about the news of Manning’s tweeting from federal prison:

Now, let me figure this one out, we have our young men and women — and their families — struggling to make ends meet and the Army is about to expend taxpayer dollars for hormone treatments for a Soldier convicted of espionage?

Our Army is nearing its lowest levels of personnel since 1939 and we’re taking orders from a judge as to how its soldiers are to be addressed?

Allen West On Iranian Deal: ‘You’ve Got To Walk Away’; ‘Economic Sanctions Most Viable Option’

Allen West

On Wednesday, Lt. Col. Allen West joined Greta Van Susteren to discuss the imminent Iranian nuclear deal and what the best course of action would be towards Iran going forward.

“You have to walk away,” West said. “First of all, there’s no change in the behavior of Iran, that would make us believe that they are going to honor any commitment whatsoever.”

“There’s nothing that they are agreeing to that shows that they are willing to be a peace partner or willing to acquiesce to international demands,” he added.

Despite the colonel’s advice, on Thursday, President Obama and Iran agreed upon a preliminary nuclear deal and called it “a good deal.”

According to Fox News, the plan contains dozens of provisions that would demand Iran cease its nuclear program–the purpose of which, many suspect, is to develop a nuclear weapon.

This deal prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak out:
