Rep. Walter Jones, No 'Fan' of Obama, Backs Diplomacy with Iran

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Mar 2015 11:41 AM

While North Carolina Republican Rep. Walter B. Jones is not a fan of President Barack Obama, he said he supports the president's efforts to try to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue diplomatically.

"If we don't try to go the diplomatic way, then we just have a world war and we have bombs dropping all over the world, the world blowing up," he said Tuesday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"If that's the solution that some people want, well, they in time will get that solution. I would rather for a president — I'm not a big fan of Obama, you know that, I've been critical, I've talked about impeachment, but I will tell you, when you stop talking the next thing is war."

Because of the United States' decision to invade Iraq under President George W. Bush, an opportunity was created for Tehran to wield increasing influence over Iraq, something with which the world must now contend, Jones said.

"It is total chaos there and what has happened is these other countries are coming in and seeing if they can expand their influence in fighting ISIL," Jones said, referring to the Islamic State.

"We are seeing the new dynamics of the Middle East … beginning to organize and form," he added, in a mention of a potential alliance between Iraq, Syria and Jordan.

"Saddam Hussein, we didn't really like him but we worked with him for the interests of the American people. Now we've got chaos in Iraq. Look at Obama, he bombed Libya to take out Gadhafi and we got total chaos there.

"Our foreign policy leaders have certainly failed the American people over the past 20 years."
