Whatever you think of former President Trump, the man, you must admit that his "America First" policies were essential for protecting the interests of the United States and its allies …
Not only did Trump abandon former President Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which allowed Iran a legal and internationally accepted path to nuclear weapons, he also imposed counterterrorism sanctions on Iran’s major banks, its Ministry of Petroleum, the National Iranian Oil Company, and its tanker subsidiary.
The U.S. Treasury Department’s sanctions were designed to disrupt Iran’s malignant behavior by forcing the Iranians to divert more of their funds from their military, terrorist activities, and weapons programs into their general economy to quell the growing dissatisfaction of the Iranian people. The sanctions specifically targeted Iran’s most important revenue-generating activity, the sale of Iranian oil.
Is Biden selling out America and its allies?
Now we are seeing the Obamacons who pull President Biden’s strings attempting to reverse former President Trump's exit from the 2015 nuclear accord and bribe the Iranians into accepting a new agreement that will preserve Obama’s dubious legacy by ordering the U.S. Treasury Department to repeal the Trump-imposed sanctions.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “The Biden administration lifted sanctions on three former Iranian officials and several energy companies amid stalled nuclear negotiations, signaling Washington’s willingness to further ease economic pressure on Iran if the country changes course.” The feckless and incompetent Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, noted, “These actions demonstrate our commitment to lifting sanctions in the event of a change in status or behavior by sanctioned persons.”
The Iranians played Obama, who was already in favor of a nuclear Iran to balance the power of Israel in the Middle East. But, of course, this pushed Israel’s traditional enemies closer to Israel to protect against a mutual threat to the region, a nuclear Iran. So now our vegetative President is signing anything put in front of him by the anti-America, pro-Islam Obamacons.
The Iranians seem pleased…
Rouhani: JCPOA parties in agreement over removal of all main sanctions
President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday the parties in Vienna talks have accepted to remove all main sanctions targeting Iranian oil, petrochemical, shipping and insurance sectors as well as the Central Bank of Iran. “We have taken the main big step, and the primary agreement has been reached,” Rouhani said, while speaking at a ceremony to inaugurate a number of oil industry projects. He said Iran’s negotiating team, headed by Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi, is still in talks over details of the final agreement “but the government has done its job.” <Source>
The first nuclear agreement was full of secret deals, did not allow for proper inspections, and did nothing about Iran's developing missiles program with nuclear delivery capabilities. Unfortunately, the new agreement is likely to be worse than the original.
The only saving grace may be that this agreement will be considered a treaty and require Senate confirmation to see which voting Senators are traitors to America.
We are so screwed.
