Schmidt: Nuke Deal Has Made Situation Between Iran and Saudis ‘More Dangerous’
SCARBOROUGH: "The transformation seems to be worse. They’re firing missiles and holding U.S. journalist age and seizing American ships. It goes on and on and on."
SCHMIDT: "No one has ever described this deal in anything but the grandest terms. Look at the resent weeks and you have the 23 seconds warning, you have an Iranian missile launched 1,500 yards from an American aircraft carrier. Washington Post reporter illegally detained for over a year. We go back to the Cold War between the Soviet Union and United States. While we never engaged in combat the two sides against each other, we fought the proxy wars. You see that playing out between the Sunnis and Saudi Arabia and Iran and the rebels and now you see the breaking and diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran and all the deal and the alienations of the sound did is and Sunni Arab allies and the discontent or uneasiness with the administration. We look at Saudi Arabia in particular and we have a 79-year-old king incapacitated at some level and really the person running the country, a 33-year-old deputy prince with his levers on control of many of the institution. It’s extremely dangerous situation that has become more dangerous in that region of the world since the deal was signed and because the deal was signed."
