Earth to Iran: Barack Obama is no longer president of the United States.
We are not going to ship you large pallets of cash to help you sponsor terrorists around the globe.
Our current president doesn’t even like terrorists and is never going to help you support it. He will also not prevent law enforcement to go after drug dealing Hezbollah.
Maybe you can get Germany and France to give you the money.
They scare easily.
Iran is demanding $15 billion in cash in order for them to abide by the deal they signed off from. Well, it’s bad enough that Obama paid Iran a ton of cash and made a ton of secret deals to get the agreement, but there is no sense paying them an enormous amount of money for the worst deal ever entered into by the United States.
Iran said Wednesday it will honor the 2015 Obama-negotiated JCPOA nuclear agreement if it can sell its oil on the open market or get “$15 billion over four months.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi made the offer ahead of a looming deadline set by Iran to further reduce its commitments under the nuclear accord.
The agreement — known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — has been in abeyance since the United States withdrew in May last year as part of a campaign promise kept by U.S. President Donald Trump.
It was the product of protracted negotiations led by then-Secretary of State John Kerry and was widely viewed as the Obama administration’s signature foreign policy achievement. By the terms of the agreement, Iran would accept restrictions to and inspections of its nuclear program designed to prevent them from developing a nuclear weapon in exchange for the cessation of the western sanctions crippling their economy.
The accord is still backed by Britain, France and Germany.
France has since been trying to convince the U.S. to offer Iran some sort of relief from sanctions it has reimposed on the Islamic republic since its pullout.
Years ago the French planted trees all along their streets. Do you know why? Because Germans hate marching in the sun. That tells you all you need to know about a deal proposed by Macron and France.
