President Obama Defends His Iranian Nuclear Deal: 'Rejecting Iran Nuclear Deal Is A Vote For War'

Reuters: Obama defends Iran nuclear deal as U.S. diplomacy over war

President Barack Obama defended the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday against a furious lobbying effort by political opponents and Israel and said abandoning the agreement would open up the prospect of war.

Invoking the Cold War peacemaking initiatives of former Presidents John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan, Obama said that if the U.S. Congress blocked the deal it would accelerate Tehran’s path to a bomb and severely damage America’s credibility.

Obama said that "alternatives to military actions will have been exhausted once we reject a hard-won diplomatic solution that the world almost unanimously supports."
