Rep. Loudermilk Co-Sponsors Resolution Opposing the Iran Nuclear Deal

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement today after co-sponsoring H. Res. 367. This resolution expresses strong opposition to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action reached by the P5+1 nations (United States, China, Russia, United Kingdom, France, and Germany), regarding the Iran nuclear deal and urges the House of Representatives to disapprove of the agreement as soon as possible.

“This Administration has continually weakened our military and, through this deal, is strengthening a self-proclaimed enemy of the United States. This deal is a recipe for disaster, and could result in war. Even within hours of reaching the agreement, Iranian officials once again openly called for the destruction of America and Israel.

“Iran is a known terrorist state, and would likely use the $150 billion in sanctions relief and frozen assets to grow their global terrorist network. As one of the leading supporters of Hezbollah and Hamas, Iran has repeatedly shown that it cannot be trusted.

“Iran has made it clear that it will continue to develop its nuclear arsenal and inter-continental ballistic missile program, which endangers our homeland and our allies in Europe and the Middle East. These weapons of mass destruction present a grave threat to the safety and security of America, and I plan on doing everything in my power to stop this disastrous agreement from moving forward.”
