Iran’s Cash for Murder: Why is the UK Silent?

Last year, when America, Britain and four other countries (the P5+1) signed their joint plan of action with Iran there was no shortage of people who warned of the consequences. They warned that the deal would merely delay rather than prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear-armed power. They warned of the increased grip the mullahs would have on the country they purport to govern. And in particular, those not caught up in the P5+1 jubilation warned of what Iran would do with the tens of billions of dollars’ cash bonanza it would receive once the deal was done. Would Iran use this windfall solely to improve the lives of its people? Or might it spend at least a portion of this cash doing what it has been doing for nearly four decades: that is, spreading terror?

There have already been some signs that the ill-judged deal is embedding Iran’s worst behaviour rather than elevating the regime to any higher behavioral level.

    The Quid pro Quo was supposed to be big orders for RR and Boeing but those ayatoldjas are pretty slippery characters when it comes to making good on their word. The most logical idea would be to drop a few neutron bombs during a surprise attack on one of their numerous upcoming “VIP Clerical conventions”.

    • It amazes me how easily fooled our “best and brightest” are. They honestly think the Islamists are “Just like us”.

      … such as Davos.
