Barack Obama’s awful weakness has led to disastrous results.
His insane strategy strengthened America’s enemies astronomically.
Barack Obama made one giant mistake that just hurt America big time.
The Democrats are quick to blame the current Iranian crisis on Trump’s abandonment of the Iranian nuclear deal.
Iran has been a constant problem for America since the Iranian revolution in 1979 overthrew a pro-American regime.
Since then the American government has consistently used economic sanctions against Iran and the Iranian government routinely blames America for the country’s many problems.
However, China and Russia have built strong relationships with Iran and are quite friendly with Iranian leadership.
The Democrats tend to have the naïve idea that throwing taxpayers’ dollars at a problem will make it go away.
With the Iranian nuclear deal, Obama had the hope that with enough money the Iranians would become America’s friend.
True friendship cannot be bought, this is true on an international level as well as a personal one.
Iran grabbed the $150 billion dollars that had been frozen in overseas accounts and $1.7 billion in cash payment from America and had no use to continue the deal after that.
Even the Brookings Institute had to admit:
The Obama administration can make a persuasive claim to unprecedented successes in dealing with Iran, and yet the ultimate objective of U.S. policy—eliminating the threats posed by the regime’s pursuit of nuclear capability, support for terrorism, and abuse of its own citizenry—remains as distant as ever.
If Obama decided to burn the $1.7 billion dollars that would have been a better idea.
Instead he sent money to a country that is hostile toward America.
Trump pointed out that the rockets that were sent at America’s military bases could have been paid for with Obama’s cash.
According to the Daily Wire:
President Trump claimed the Obama administration “paid for” the ballistic missiles that Iran used to strike an Iraqi-U.S. coalition military base in western Iraq on Wednesday morning.
“The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration,” Trump said in the grand foyer of the White House.
President Barack Obama sent $1.7 billion in cash to Iran to pay for a decades-old arbitration claim that stood between the two nations. Iran agreed to release four American prisoners in exchange for the payment delivered on Jan. 17, 2016.
Sen. Ted Cruz made the same suggestion on Hannity last night, saying: “They literally flew $1.7 billion in cash, in unmarked bills, on pallets in the dead of night into Iran. In a very real sense, the missiles that we saw fired at U.S. servicemen and women tonight were paid for by the billions that the Obama administration flooded the Ayatollah with.”
Giving money that will help strengthen hostile regimes is bad foreign policy.
America shouldn’t be nice to our enemies; it should be strong and Obama wasn’t strong.
Do you think Trump is having to clean up Obama’s bad Iranian deal?
