It's a done deal, yet opponents of the Iran nuclear agreement won't go quietly.Other legislation being weighed would strengthen security for Israel, which Iran has threatened to destroy, and for U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf worried about Iran gaining influence in the Mideast as a result of the deal.To further stabilize the region in the wake of the deal, Coons said the U.S. needs to strengthen the Gulf states' ability to counter threats from Iran.Sen. Richard Blumenthal said he will propose legislation with Sen. Ben Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to address some of the deal's "shortfalls".In the end Blumenthal supported the deal; Cardin opposed it.Blumenthal said the two will offer legislation to provide an effective way to put sanctions back into place if Iran cheats, ensure strict adherence to the agreement, and enhance security assistance to Israel, including new joint-training exercises and inviting Israeli pilots to train to fly long-range bombers.
