Our enemies are pushing as far as they can while the weak US president is in power. Iran has demanded $50 billion in reparations for 63 years of spiritual and material damage.
Iran is one of the leading state sponsors of terrorism and has a long history of inciting violence in the Middle East.
For instance, it’s known that in 2004 Iran flooded Iraq with improvised explosive devices, which took the lives of 500 soldiers and Marines.
Iran’s claim is in direct response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last month demanding Iran hand over nearly $2 billion in frozen assets to the survivors and relatives of those killed in attacks that Iran organized, including the 1983 bombing of a U.S. marine barracks in Beirut that killed 241.
Shortly after the court ruling, Iranian President Rouhani said Tehran was preparing international legal action to recover the nearly $2 billion in frozen assets.
Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said this is what we are going to see for the next several months while Obama is in office. The Iranian nuke deal is a huge signal that the Obama administration will give in.
The Obama administration will also most likely allow Iran backdoor access to US dollars. He is running around Europe telling them to do business with them, acting as their sales rep.
Kerry has said, “We want to make it clear that legitimate business, which is clear under the definition of the agreement, [which includes allowing them to sell nuclear material], is available to banks.” He said that only last week in London.
Leading Senators including Mark Kirk of Illinois and Marco Rubio of Florida are threatening to block all consideration of Treasury Department nominees until the administration ends its bid “to enable Iranian access to US dollars.”
The Obama administration vowed during negotiations with Iran to not make such a move – it was out of the question.
