Iran Deal Frees Up New Financing to Carry Out Terrorism

The framework agreement on Iran’s nuclear program is set to refill Iran’s coffers and enable the Islamic Republic to invest considerable treasure in its regional network of terrorist and guerilla proxies.

The deal between Tehran and the P5+1 countries, which must be finalized by June 30, has generated intense debate over whether it goes far enough to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Yet, aside from these controversies, its short-term impact on the Middle East looks bleak.

Promised relief from crippling economic sanctions will soon place Iran in a far better position to finance its extensive list of clients and activate them to subvert, destabilize, and spread conflict and mayhem across the region…

    I thought we were ALREADY “fighting” terrorism (on some minimal level) by sanctioning the crap out of Iran?
    So, by fighting terrorism, we are not REALLY fighting terrorism?
    Conversely, by enriching one of the greatest terror-sponsoring nations on the planet, we are REALLY fighting terrorism?

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear Obama was a foreign agent hell-bent on increasing Islamic terrorism.
    Thankfully I know better, because the NYTs tells me so!

    Yes, Iran will get even more aggressive until it overextends. That in the end is what brought down the Soviet Union.

    Obama is a fake balanced foreign policy person because his policies are against Iran at the same time being for Iran being part of the community of nations. Obama is alienating everyone and the US has attacked 9 to 15 nations since 9/11. That is a proven fact. The fact is Obama is just as bad as Bush and people think he is Chamberlain. The fact is Obama couldn’t be more warlike. To be truly for a balanced foreign policy you would have to be for ending conflicts, pulling troops out, building newer alliances, finding ways to use peace over war and giving foreign aid. I see none of that by Obama and the Republicans are just going to be more of the same if they get in next time. What the US needs is truly a party in their nation for non-interventionism. It is sad that many in the West in the mainstream are for continuing these wars which have done nothing in the past 14+ years. I am shocked that so many continue to buy the nonsense, by the mainstream. Are they gullible? Do they have amnesia? Do they remember what happened yesterday? Do they want a world war? These are questions that the interventionists have to answer.

    Also, the real question that should be asked is do the interventionists in the West want to pull nations in war as Cotton in the US wants because just a day or two ago some in the US have suggested that the US should go into a war in Iran at this moment. Are they out of their minds?! Don’t they realize that the US is out of money and overstretched. The US needs to restructure and fix its economy.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      The only thing the US is doing these days is opening more and more wars.

    This is not going to work well for the future of the human race.
    Let alone America and Israel.
    One missstep of a man to achieve 2 million years of darkness.
    That should fundamentally change things.
