Iran Gets $2.8 Billion Bribe To 'Extend' Nuke Talks Deadline 4 months
Well. the July 20th deadline of talks between Iran and the P5+1 over Iran's illegal nuclear program came and went. This was supposed to be 'Iran's last chance' according to Secretary Kerry and other assorted foreign policy leaders. So what happened? New, increased sanctions? An embargo on Iranian oil? Ominous remarks about 'consequences', perhaps?
The P5+1, AKA The U.S., France, Britain, Russia and China plus Germany came up with something even worse. As Reuters and other sources are reporting, not only did they they give the Ayatollahs another 4 months to 'negotiate' while the centrifuges spin, but they actually bribed them with a further release of $2.5 billion in frozen funds just to keep the faux negotiations going. So not only does Iran get another 4 months for weapons development, they get the badly needed funds to continue!
You literally can't make this stuff up.
And to add to the mix, a recent Pentagon report shows Iran using the time and money it'd gotten from the West via November's agreement that wasn't really an agreement to increase its military capabilities, especially in the area of ballistic missiles.
There are really only two possibilities here. Either Secretary Kerry and the rest of the Obama team are so abysmally stupid and incompetent that they can't see how they're being played and where this is leading. Or they know, and simply don't care, but want to make it look like they at least tried to do something to prevent a nuclear Iran.
Nothing else makes sense. When the four months are up, Iran will have bought themselves an entire year's worth of time to continue their development of nuclear weapons and their delivery. Not only that, but the West has actually given them the funds to do it.
This makes Neville Chamberlain and Munich look like amateur hour.At least Chamberlain had a piece of paper from Hitler, while Kerry and President Obama don't even have that much.
This will not end well. And that is a massive understatement.
