Sometimes when things don’t work out the way you think they should, you need to sit back and have patience. That’s what is happening with one of the worst foreign policy blunders in world history…in fact, probably the second worst (next to Chamberlin giving Czechoslovakia to Hitler!). It’s happening with the Iran Nuclear Deal. Apparently the world forgot that the United States has laws that have to be followed, and John Kerry in his infantile wisdom forgot that just because he is Secretary of State, he couldn’t void those laws.
What’s happened is that yes, some Iranian products that weren’t available in this country prior to the deal, are indeed able to make it through customs. But that $100 Billion that Iran was supposed to tap? Well, they’ve violated UN sanctions with their ballistic missile tests, and so the banks that are holding that Petro-money isn’t releasing it because they could be fined by the UN if they do. And what about Europe? Remember all of the money that was going to flood Iran when Europe started to do business with them? Some of that is happening, but not a lot. Oh, the arms deals from Russia are getting through, but the trade? Not so much because of the same rules from the UN. Businesses are wary that if they start doing business in Iran and violate the terms of the UN sanctions that are in place, they could be fined out of existence.
Meanwhile, John Kerry is telling the world the US is committed to the accord that he negotiated. But it will take an act of congress to change the banking laws, and the UN needs to relax its non-nuclear sanctions prior to businesses rushing in to the Peacock Empire. Apparently none of that is on the horizon. So, Iran is threatening to sue the United States for $50 Billion because of the false deal that we signed with them. Of course, Bobo Obama and John “I Served In Vietnam” Kerry have bent over backwards trying to assure the Iranian regime that all will work itself out. Unless of course, Hillary loses the election in November. Then all bets are off and Iran could find itself back in financial hardship without that US money. That’s primarily because all of the GOP candidates, including Donald Trump, have said they’d scrap the Iran Nuclear Deal. Since it was never passed as a treaty, because that would have required a senate approval that never would have happened, the next president can void the deal with the stroke of a pen.
No, it appears that like Obama’s greatest domestic legacy item, Obamacare, his greatest foreign policy item, the Iran Nuclear Deal is also unraveling before he even leaves office. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t think things through clearly and you waste America’s resources trying to do things that aren’t good for this country!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
