Two Years In, Obama’s Investment in Iran is Paying Deadly Dividends
Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is already creating carnage in the Middle East. Replete with cash, Iran is supporting groups like Hezbollah, Hamas and the Houthis in order to further their Shiite Islamofascist agenda in the Middle East.
Beyond funding terror groups and complicating Israel’s counter-terrorism operations, the nuclear deal will likely fast-track Iran’s path to becoming a nuclear-armed Islamic theocracy.
Before the signing of the Iran deal, Iran was a deadly adversary, but their major weakness was that they were completely economically crippled by US and international sanctions. Upon the signing of the Iran deal, and after the capture of US Navy Sailors, Obama turned over more than $150 Billion to Iran.
In a bizarre procedure, the cash was paid in various currencies, in untraceable covert deliveries of cash to Iran. This move by the Obama administration to furnish Iran with untraceable cash was not only unprecedented, but was also the single biggest infusion of cash ever given to a state sponsor of terrorism.
Iran’s main arm of terror in the Middle East was is Hezbollah. The Quds Force, a special division of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, takes the lead on supplying, funding and training Hezbollah. With operations across the Middle East, Hezbollah serves as a terror arm to strike Israeli and Saudi Arabian interests.
When a member of Hezbollah or Hamas is killed committing a terror attack, the groups go to great lengths to provide support and funding to the family of the terrorist. Newly minted funds supplied to Hezbollah and Hamas from Iran make this much easier.
When speaking about the Iran Nuclear deal in April, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said “It only delays their goal of becoming a nuclear state.”
The Iran nuclear deal is doomed. The nuclear deal allows for the funding of terror groups and the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. In the same way that Bill Clinton’s bungled deal lead to a nuclear North Korea, Obama’s deal, if it remains unchanged, will lead to a nuclear Iran.
