Carly Fiorina on War & Peace

 


Impose crippling sanctions on Iran

Today the United Nations Security Council finally voted to impose new sanctions on Iran in response to that country's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons in defiance of the international community. But this vote was no victory for peace or security.

In order to get Russia and China on board, President Obama gutted the sanctions that were once promised to be "crippling' and later downgraded to "biting.' Today's sanctions are so watered down that Russian Prime Minister Putin vowed they would "not put Iran's leadership or the Iranian people into difficulty.'

If Iran's leadership is not put "into difficulty' by these sanctions, American interests and those of our allies will be. This is the fourth round of U.N. sanctions on Iran, yet Iran continues to work toward a nuclear weapon.

The United States Congress can impose its own sanctions on Iran, real sanctions that would cause Iran's leadership great difficulty.

Impose crippling sanctions against Iran

CAMPBELL: Let's talk about the threat that Israel and the US face from nuclear-armed Iran, which is huge. The responsibility of the US is to support Israel, if Israel needs to use military force to take the potential of nuclear tipped weapons away from Iran.

FIORINA: I certainly agree that we need to be extremely concerned about Iran and I believe that we have lost a year to President Obama's failed engagement policy. The time has come for us to impose crippling sanctions unilaterally if necessary. We should be cutting off all access for Iran's leaders and for the Iran Revolutionary guard core to financial institutions to credit, to travel. We should be limiting Iran's imports for fined petroleum. And we should also stand very firmly with the brave men and women in Iran who are challenging the repressive Government and take advantage of the fact that there is a historic split in the theocracy in Iran--the first time in 25 years that that's happened.

Impose sanctions on Iran: no refined petroleum imports

Q: An accusation has been made around Iran and printers sold while you were CEO of HP?

FIORINA: HP has been in compliance with all US law. These accusations that we, that HP, did something unlawful are false. The real issue in Iran is how do we stop Iran's never-ending march towards a nuclear weapon? I believe we need to stop talking now and start acting. Congress should impose sanctions against shipment of refined petroleum into Iran.

Q: Chuck Devore, your campaign was the first to bring this to light?

DEVORE: We are not talking about simply compliance with obscure export controls. Carly Fiorina as CEO of HP could have severed relationship with Redington Gulf [the HP intermediary shipping to Iran], as HP has done in the early part of 2009 after a very damaging article came out in the Boston Globe. When she calls for sanctions against Iran, which certainly we can agree with, the hypocritical thing is that she participated as a CEO in undermining those very sanctions.

Two-state solution with Jerusalem as undivided capital

Q: Should the Palestinians have their own territory? And should the capital in Jerusalem be shared?

FIORINA: The peace process ultimately must include a two-state solution. However, I do not support the notion that Jerusalem should be a divided capital Tom Campbell apparently does.

CAMPBELL: No, that's not true.

FIORINA: Well, you were one of only 34 people in the entire House of Representatives in 1990 to vote against Jerusalem being the undivided capital of Israel.

CAMPBELL: The motion was a political maneuver to embarrass President George H. W. Bush.

FIORINA: That's a really interesting, and frankly intellectually contorted explanation. The reality is, 33 other congress people agreed with you, everyone else disagreed. The vast majority of Congress people were not embarrassed by this supposedly diplomatic maneuver.

CAMPBELL: The Prime Minister of Israel at the time was prepared to discuss a solution that involved as shared capital in Jerusalem.
