Less than a week after the Iran nuclear deal was reached, it has been approved unaminously at the UN Security Council.
This, of course, is hardly a surprise. After all, the Iran nuclear deal was negotiated with the P5 + 1. The P5 refers to the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany.
But what it also means is that even if Congress somehow blocks the deal, sanctions relief will proceed with China, Russia, and Europe eager to resume doing business with Iran. Not that they haven’t been doing business with the Mullahs already, particularly the Russians.
None of this will particularly bother the Obama Administration. But that won’t be the case should a Republican be elected to the White House (with the possible exceptions of Rand Paul and Donald Trump). A Republican President might see fit to repudiate the Iran nuclear deal and could a find a way to work with Israel and the Gulf Arab states to do so. But it will be a far more difficult task as Iran is welcomed back into the international community with open arms bearing cash.
