Didn't -- -- White House's stop talking and start taking action on Iran several leading Republicans.
Accusing the administration of appeasing the rogue -- right here.
The Iranian approach seems to be what's mine is mine.
And what yours what's yours is negotiable unfortunately the administration seems to be playing along.
These guys are going to stop.
They're always gonna be a way to get money and an -- and the things that they need.
It ain't gonna stop you reach a point when you can't negotiate with tyrants.
We have to stand up and say look you stop this stuff because you're endangering humanity -- tell tyrants.
While you still have time it's time that we do something to stop this nonsense instead of talking about it and killing everybody with paper.
I'm Dan -- what's wrong on that KT McFarland Fox's sit on national security analysts here.
Picking good morning -- -- you say the US is not going with Enron says Iran is pulling with.
She's -- realizes.
That the United States especially present about what do anything to prevent a problem prior to result a reelection.
He will do nothing to aggravate the relationship with the United States and -- so what happens.
Continue to have negotiations they continued it sort of string -- -- -- are they stopping their nuclear weapons program absolutely not in fact.
They're accelerating their nuclear weapons program they're putting and burying their nuclear facilities deep underground so that we're re ever to take military action it would be potentially.
A problem for us an unsuccessful so what do we need to do with Iran right now we need to say to them the sanctions are gonna be so severe.
That they're gonna stop you in your tracks and if the sanctions are stuck you military action stalking you ever charts.
You can get -- your necks or give our Internet hunt.
Here next to your nukes we'll stated.
You say sanctions make us feel better but they don't do anything in the -- I thought I I think a lot of people would argue the sanctions in Iraq actually did affect the people in Iraq quite substantially.
And perhaps they are affecting the people of Iran to a great degree but are they having the effect on the regime.
You would argue the other side but but yeah but Iran watched what happened with North Korea for fifteen years that's the -- -- -- -- learn from that.
That's it billion absolutely hit the nail on the had what example does Iran have -- how the United States responds and whether we character with -- -- And 1994 we fed to the north Koreans stop -- nuclear program or we're gonna have sanctions.
And if you do you stop your nuclear program -- -- you know -- they were going to be great friends what happened in north Koreans went ahead with their nuclear program.
And they paid no consequence of the year radiance of seen that.
And they -- well -- American can't even stop in North Korea had no way there gonna stop us but they don't believe any.
Threat that we make as a credible threat that's why it's so important to do sanctions.
Not that make us feel better but -- forced Iranians to come to the conclusion that again is Cedar Fair yet -- and well if we buy your argument -- it hasn't happened now it hasn't and we.
Will that position change well here's what might make -- change severe sudden extreme sanctions to completely isolate Iran.
Economically from the world -- -- needs its its money that it gets from oil exports to stay alive.
And if they don't get that money they're people go to the streets like they did in 2009.
And they demand a change that's how Reagan won the Cold War bill.
He cut off the ability of the of the Soviet Union to have oil revenues from what happened the Soviet Union realize that they were facing food shortages and social unrest they knew they had -- can believe in America.
You also saw when those people when the streets of Iran they were beaten back.
Yes and that -- That's right and that's when President Obama should have said to them where with you he should've done what Reagan did when the polls went to the streets in the 1980s.
But Obama did he said not -- we're -- negotiate with Iranian regime we're not gonna support.
Anybody that would interfere with that but he's got a second chance he has a do over we've seen in the Arab world and the Arab Spring.
The people will take to the streets at their conditions are dire enough.
That's what we need the Iranians back in the streets demanding regime change.
You're gonna change after the leadership one way or another -- thank you have a good weekend at an apartment here with us.
In New York.
