A group of war veterans, including wounded Iraq war veteran Robert Bartlett, is opposing President Obama and the Iran nuclear deal by the initiation of a million dollar campaign.

The effort is geared toward contradicting the president’s assessment that to be against the Iran deal is to be in favor of war. The veteran’s message is that Obama’s argument couldn’t be further form the truth.

“Obama has said recently that there are only two camps: those who support the deal verses those who would prefer a bloody and costly war like the conflict in Iraq,” reports BloombergView. “The new ad campaign complicates that, asserting that the deal itself will lead to more war. And the voices putting forth that case do not prefer war; they are soldiers who have had enough of it.”

The states running these ads are states whose lawmakers are on the fence about the Iran Deal. “The deal calls for Iran tamping down its nuclear program,” states Fox11 News. “If the terrorist nation does, the U.S. agrees to ease sanctions which will free up to $100 billion of frozen Iranian assets.”

Veterans Against The Deal (VATD) is funding the ad.

The executive director of VATD, Michael Pregent, stated “As military veterans, we want Congressmen and Senators to know that we know this enemy. We know what it has done, and we know what it is doing, and we know what it will do with more funding.”

Retired staff sergeant Bartlett, who was badly injured while serving in the Iraq war in 2005, is the first featured veteran in the group’s videos. “Every politician who is involved in this will be held accountable; they will have blood on their hands. A vote for this deal means more money for Iranian terrorism. What do you think they are going to d when they get more money?

Bartlett, to many Americans, posses a good question, a question that is sure to hurt the Obama Administrations push for the Iran Deal.

The only incentive these veteran’s have, according to Preget, is to be heard and that the only motivating factor for the videos is to share their views and personal experiences.

“We don’t want to make this a partisan issue. We’ll have Democratic vets who voted for Obama participating in this as well.”

Mike Flynn, Retired Gen. and director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (2012-2014) said the troops were called on to serve their country during the war in Iraq, and they did just that. Their call to service did not mean they were advocates of the Iraq war but rather simply doing their duty. 

“They have a responsibility to speak up,” stated Flynn, and they did. Flynn is an adviser to the VATD.

Are you listening America…are you listening Mr. President?

    Veteran’s Day Protest FaceBook Event Page

    We have raised about 70% of the cost of the banner already. Even small donations will help and are greatly appreciated. If you would like to help pay for the banner, go to this link.

    We are close enough now that I will pay any shortfall and make sure the banner flies. I could still use some help, though.

    Am planning to make the Banner read “IMPEACH OBAMA – TERRORIST”

    From previous experience, calling Obama a “terrorist” infuriates Obama supporters more than anything else. In fact, his actions have been supportive Al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists. So, the label fits and he ought to wear it.

    Come and watch people react to our protest. It will be interesting. The crowd at a Veteran’s Day Parade should be about as receptive to this protest as you can find. Some, who come for the parade, will probably stand with us.

    The results will be promoted in a YouTube video. A large crowd of supporters would help it go viral. I would not yet give up on removing King Obama from office, because his most shocking actions will, no doubt, come in this next year of his anti-American reign.

  2. We know he’s not listening. He never listens to the people that know about this stuff. The guy never had a real job besides serving ice cream and here he is thinking he is the one who has all the insight. He’s a know-it-all dope without a clue. This deal is bad news and Obama wants to brow beat us because most people know the deal is bad and Iran is busting a gut laughing at us.

  3. “Prevent wars and try to win wars …’ the very thing that the Globalist leaders and shrews are against – what ‘sport’ is that! Probably why the regime is coming against the vets to take away their guns – under the guise of calling them ‘unfit’. Nothing worse than having someone see thru your con, tell others and have a weapon to defend themselves. IF congress stands up against this ploy it’ll be very surprising!

  4. Meanwhile, the White House corralled all of their politicians in uniform together to sign “an open letter from Retired Generals and Admirals” supporting Obama’s “bend over and let us have it” program with Iran. Of the number of generals who signed this open letter are three Marines … all of whom disgrace themselves by politicizing their uniform and flag; they reveal to us that they are not so much American officers as they are Democrats. However, that said, taken in context with the number of generals and admirals who are currently retired from active duty service, the list of those who do support Obama is infinitesimal. While I am shocked to learn that any military officer would sign Obama’s letter, I am nevertheless gratified that the number of idiots of flag rank is actually quite small.

    • Mustang, I will tell you how displeased I am that these people in uniform would sign the letter…Dems or not! Perhaps they have been brainwashed or caved to the pressure, which is certainly no excuse, but please don’t tell me they AGREE with him…? God gave us brains people, lets use them.But, to the men and women who have banned together to show the world a hero’s perspective, GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
