First of all, you need to understand the thinking of Islamic extremists. The leaders of Iran belong to a radical Shia sect called the Twelvers. Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has referred to the leaders of Iran as a radical apocalyptic cult. And so they are. They believe that Iran has the role, given by God, to initiate an apocalyptic war with the West in order to usher in their version of the end times, which includes the return of the twelfth Imam. See my previous posts for more details:
Iran wants to go to war with the West. They are planning to go to war with the West. They believe it is their religious duty to go to war with the West. Why? in order to establish a worldwide Islamic kingdom. They believe that the end result of this war will be the death of all who refuse to convert to the extremist version of Islam.
And now Iran is close to obtaining nuclear weapons. They need nukes, or they will not be able to start their apocalyptic war.
ISIL (also called ISIS, IS, or DAESH) stands for “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (i.e. greater Syria)”. That extremist group also seeks a worldwide Islamic Kingdom. They call themselves “Islamic State” after that idea, that the whole planet will become one Islamic State. (They don’t like it when we narrow their Islamic State to “Iraq and Syria, or Iraq and the Levant” by adding IL or IS after the initial IS.)
Both extremist groups, the Shia leaders of Iran and the Sunni leaders of ISIL, have essentially the same goal: conquer the whole world and kill anyone who refuses to convert to their extremist religion.
In my understanding of the future, Iran and ISIL will soon unite; they will make a formal pact and join forces against the West. Their goal will be world conquest.
The recent Iran nuclear deal seems to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons by limiting them to low-enriched uranium. They would need highly-enriched uranium (weapon-grade uranium) to make nuclear bombs. That’s nice on paper. But the reality of the situation is that Iran may have one or more secret facilities, already producing weapon-grade uranium.
Iran’s two known enrichment facilities, Natanz and Fordow, were each secret facilities, until they were discovered by the West. Iran has the money and desire to build a third secret facility, and they have now had enough time to do so. Even though we have not discovered such a facility, their behavior indicates that it exists and is operational. Otherwise, Iran would not have agreed to severe limitations on their two known facilities.
The Iran nuke deal lifts sanctions on Iran, and unfreezes financial assets with an estimated worth of as much as 160 billion dollars. And there are no limits on how that money can be used. Iran can take that money and use it to complete its nuclear weapons, at its secret facilities. They can use that money to buy conventional weapons and to increase their defense budget. Iran’s defense budget is estimated to be just north of 11 billion dollars per year. These unfrozen assets can be used to greatly increase their defense budget, and fund their military for a dozen years — or to fund a major war.
We are literally giving Iran the money they need to start an apocalyptic war with the West.
The U.S. has given Pakistan, Egypt, and other nations in the Middle East (not counting Israel) billions of dollars in aid. We have also sold military weapons, ships, and planes to our Middle-eastern allies (e.g. Saudi Arabia). And we permit private defense contractors to sell them weapons as well.
When extremists take control of all the Muslim nations in the Middle East and northern Africa, those monies and those weapons will be used against us in World War 3. We are funding the enemy. We are supplying weapons to the enemy. American lives will be lost. Our own soldiers will be killed with weapons we funded, built, and/or sold to our enemies. Whiskey tango foxtrot!
World War 3
In my eschatology, I predict that the extremists will win World War 3. They will invade, conquer, and occupy all of Europe. The extremists will be led by Iran and Iraq (ISIL). They will use nuclear weapons against major cities (New York, Rome, Vatican City). The extremists will conquer Europe. U.S. troops will be forced to withdraw in defeat. NATO will be disbanded.
During the occupation after the war, the extremists will severely oppress and persecute the population. Eventually, this persecution will turn into a massacre of Christians in the occupied nations of Europe.
Then the extremists will obtain enough nuclear bombs and ICBMs to threaten nuclear annihilation of the U.S. and other free nations. The extremists will literally attempt to conquer the world by threatening a massive nuclear first strike against any nations that refuse to submit to them.
World War 4
In response, the U.S. will undertake a nuclear first strike against the extremists. Then World War 4 unfolds, which is an all-out nuclear war. The West will win, but at great cost. The world will be plunged into nuclear winter. The death toll will be unimaginable. The living will envy the dead.
And it all begins with this nuclear deal, permitting Iran access to tens of billions of dollars in assets, and allowing them to continue to possess nuclear material and enrichment facilities.
