They are the victims of Iranian terrorism, and now they’re speaking out against President Obama’s Iranian nuclear agreement.
A newly created group made up of veterans is voicing opposition to Obama’s controversial nuclear deal – which will lift sanctions and free up Iran to use hundreds of millions of dollars to keep funding terror – by urging Americans to call their lawmakers.
Launched this week with a powerful new television ad, the group “Vets Against the Deal” aims to inform Americans about the brutal violence Iran has sponsored, by featuring servicemen who were victims of Iranian-made bombs in the War on Terror.
“I was blown up by an Iranian bomb. It cut me in half, from the left corner of my temple down through my jaw,” retired Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bartlett said in the new video, with his facial scars clearly visible. “That day is imprinted in my brain forever.”
Bartlett, who received a Purple Heart for his service, goes on to explain the barbaric tactics Iranians used to get locals to comply with their plans to kill American military members in Iraq.
“They would kidnap little kids from neighboring villages, and put bullets in their heads. They’d kill them in front of all the villagers, and say ‘We’re going to run our bombs out of here,’” he said. “That’s who we’re making a deal with.”
The group plans to run TV ads in several states, targeting lawmakers who have said they are undecided about whether or not they will support Obama’s Iranian nuclear deal.
Highlighting recently disclosed Pentagon data showing that at least 500 American military deaths in Iraq were linked to Iran, the group hopes to pressure key lawmakers into opposing what they describe as “funding terrorism” through lifting sanctions on the regime.
“Call your senator. Tell them ‘No deal with Iran,’” Bartlett urges in the video. “If you don’t, who will?”
