Obama lifts sanctions on Iran, look what they immediately do with their newfound cash
Yesterday morning I picked up a copy of the Wall Street Journal and the cover picture told quite the story. It was from the Monday meeting between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin. The photo captured the moment when Obama extended his hand and Putin just looked at him. It was a very telling moment considering what’s happening around the world — Russian resurgence, American recalcitrance. It was President Obama who early in his first term stated to the Iranians that he would offer his hand if they would unclench their fist. Well, look what that got us?
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “Iran has purchased $21 billion worth of Russian satellite technology and aircraft, according to Iranian officials. An Iranian delegation reportedly visited Russia’s MAKS-2015 air show and signed an agreement to purchase the equipment, according to Sputnik, which quoted Iranian officials.
“There is a large share of contracts for the purchase of this type of aircraft,” Manouchehr Mantegh, an Iranian technology and aviation official, reportedly disclosed, according to Sputnik. This includes “satellite-related equipment” and the Sukhoi Superjet, a twin-engine passenger plane, according to the report. The official did not reveal the total number of jets to be purchased.Tehran has expressed interest in the past in purchasing this type of hardware from the Russians.
Meanwhile, a senior Iranian official on Tuesday emphasized the country’s commitment to destroying its enemies. Iran will deliver a “crushing response” to any country that attempts to wage war against it, General Seyed Ali Mehrabi, lieutenant commander of Iran’s Army Ground Force for Operations, was quoted as saying by the country’s state-controlled Fars News Agency. “The enemy is aware that Iran is an important place for all Muslims and an influential country in the region and even the world, given its great capacities,” Mehrabi was quoted as saying.”
Ok, this is what I want you all to try and digest. Obama puts economic sanctions on Russia because of its actions in Crimea and Ukraine. Obama lifts economic sanctions on the Iranians who are the number one state sponsor of Islamic terror, unfreezing assets to the tune of $150 billion. And Obama convinces 42 Senate Democrats to filibuster the vote on the Resolution of Disapproval for the Iranian nuclear deal — despite the non-disclosure of the Iranian side deals. So in essence, the 42 Democrats and Barack Obama are guilty of violating U.S. Code by providing material support and comfort, aiding and abetting a terrorist state…what are the consequences?
Here are the consequences. Iran knows Obama has been able to outmaneuver the American people and will unilaterally decide to give them $150 billion. Iranian officials travel to Russia to spend $21 billion on new satellite technology and aircraft — still leaves Iran with a cool $129 billion.
