After the ill-conceived nuclear “deal” with Iran was negotiated (if that is the right word) by Secretary of State John Kerry, Iran’s economy was and is expected to grow quickly (unlike ours).
For starters, as part of that nuclear “deal,” the sanctions against Iran were lifted at the beginning of this year. Also the United States paid Iran the one-and-half-billion (yes, with a “b”) dollars we “owed” them.
But with the nuclear “deal” in place, we can rest comfortably. Of course, Iran will keep its word and follow the letter of the law in the agreement it signed.
So now, we can trust Iran? Right?
Wrong. We cannot trust Iran. They were violating terms of the “deal” before the ink dried. Secretary Kerry is back in the news urging patience and a wait-and-see attitude before new sanctions are put into place.
Wait-and-see? How long should we wait? Why would be would expect to see anything different?
Iran cannot be trusted. Period.
