John Kerry admitted on Thursday what every single thinking person in the world already knew… the billions of dollars going to Iran as a part of Obama’s big legacy, the Iran Nuclear Deal, was going to fund terrorists around the world.
Kerry’s comments were startling to be sure. He came out and in typical Kerry fashion, said exactly what the money was going to be used for after months of obfuscating and lying about where the money would be headed. Oh, he said that “some” of the money would be going to help to rebuild the economy, but added, totally on his own, without being prompted, that there would be money going to fund terrorism. That in and of itself, should invoke the “snap-back” clauses of the deal. We all know it won’t, at least until next January, when a Republican gets in office, negates the current deal with Iran, and slaps sanctions back on them. But by that point it won’t matter. The damage will have been done.
Barack Obama did get his legacy item in this deal. He gave Iran a nuclear weapon. And if there is anyone out there that actually believes that Iran won’t have tested a nuclear device by next January 20th, you’ve got rocks for brains. They don’t care about any deal. They don’t care about any sanctions snapping back, because they know that’s not going to happen.
Iran has already made deals with Airbus, the European airline company for billions of dollars in business. That insures that the Europeans aren’t going to slap sanctions on them. If the US does unilaterally, then you’ve got another Cuba situation. You won’t be able to buy Iranian oil in this country, but the rest of the world will pick up the slack. Meanwhile, under the terms of the agreement, since the UN has already stipulated that Iran has complied with all of the terms of the deal, they are now free to purchase weapons from other countries legally, and do with them whatever they wish. It’s not a long putt to think that some of the weapons being purchased will end up in the hands of the terrorist organizations that Iran has been funding all these years, but there is no concrete evidence to that effect just yet.
That’s the whole problem with this deal in the first place. By the time you get concrete proof of Iran violating any part of the deal, it’s too late. They are self-inspecting their sites and turning the data over to the IAEA for verification (which I ask, how can that happen if the IAEA isn’t there inspecting the facilities?). By the time the world learns of the violations of the deal, Iran will have achieved their objective…and Obama will have fulfilled his dream of making the Peacock Kingdom the regional power in the Middle East.
This was a bad deal all the way around. John Kerry knows it. He lets it slip little by little how bad of a deal it was. And all the while he was giving away the store; he told the American people that if it were a bad deal, he’d walk away. I vote that we let John Kerry walk away…all the way to Tehran!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
