Whatever the amount, understand that people will die because of this horrendously stupid administration and its morally bankrupt actions
Iran may have received an additional $33.6 billion in secret cash and gold payments facilitated by the Obama administration between 2014 and 2016, according to testimony provided before Congress by an expert on last summer’s nuclear agreement with Iran.
Between January 2014 and July 2015, when the Obama administration was hammering out the final details of the nuclear accord, Iran was paid $700 million every month from funds that had previously been frozen by U.S. sanctions.
A total of $11.9 billion was ultimately paid to Iran, but the details surrounding these payments remain shrouded in mystery, according to Mark Dubowitz, executive director at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
In total, “Iran may have received as much as $33.6 billion in cash or in gold and other precious metals,” Dubowitz disclosed.
Most or all of this money will be spent on terrorism and Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
As I said, yes, people will be killed by terrorist acts funded with this money! Yes, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and yes, many Muslims as well. The victims, frankly, will come from every possible demographic, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, or race. But, I must suppose that those lives are worth it to Dear Leader somehow
[T]he International Atomic Energy Agency said in a review issued Thursday that Iran had begun manufacturing rotor tubes for centrifuges, the spinning machines used to enrich uranium. …
The agency needs to keep a close eye on how many rotor tubes are being made and for what models of centrifuges to make sure they are being produced only in quantities and for machines allowed under the 2015 nuclear agreement that sets a schedule for when and how many advanced centrifuges can be tested. …
A senior diplomat familiar with the nuclear deal … said he could not verify reports that the six powers exempted some amounts of low-enriched uranium and facilities from the deal’s scope to allow Iran to be in compliance with the pact from the beginning of implementation in January.
So, we have paid billions, yes billions, most of it if not all in untraceable cash, which will be given to terrorists, who will slaughter innocents. The rest will be used to allow Iran to build, and eventually use nuclear weapons. So, this venture will not avoid war, or deter war. Instead it will lead to a much bigger, and more costly war. Fools, it seems never learn from history.
We must also remember that Iran has been allowed to threaten our Naval vessels, and on one occasion to seize one and hold our sailors. Let me say that would never happen if we had a president who put our country first. If I were Commander in Chief, every one of my commanders, in every branch, would have standing orders. They would have my permission and blessing to meet every threat with whatever force they deemed necessary to protect those under their command. And they would also know that I, as the Commander in Chief would have their back! And every nation on earth would know any military that sought to threaten our forces would be responsible for the results.
In short, my foreign policy in regards to our security would be Speak softly, carry the biggest stick, and to use that stick with no uncertainty, no reservations, and with such overwhelming force that every nation would look at us with respect, and would know never to threaten us or our closest allies. They would know never to confuse our inherent kindness with weakness or vacillation. They would know that we are not only capable, but willing to put down any threat to our people.
