Iran Ransom

Posted by Troy on 3rd August 2016 in Current Events, Political

When we were negotiating the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obama delivered 400 million dollars.  His cover story was that the 400 million was money the sheik paid to America in exchange for arms in the 1970s before the Iranian Revolution and Iran taking our embassy hostage.  We feared that the international court would find against us and charge u s ten billion dollars, so we decided to settle for 1.7 billion.  This 400 million was merely the down payment.

First, this was clearly a ransom.  We pay the money right before the prisoners were released?  Even if it wasn’t a ransom, the timing, de facto, made it a ransom in the eyes of Iran.  If it’s viewed as a ransom in the criminal’s eyes, it’s a ransom.  It’s a ransom.  It’s that simple.  So, by paying this amount, we have set a precedence that the US gives money for US hostages.  As such, do not travel abroad.

Second, this is exactly my point about international organizations.  What the hell do we care what an international court says?  “You need to pay a terrorist nation 10 billion dollars.”  The only acceptable answer is: “____ you.  We are NOT paying a country that sponsors terrorism any money, especially considering they took our people hostage.  If you don’t like that, maybe the UN’s army should try to come take it… oh wait… WE ARE the UN army.  Ha.  Go ____ yourself.”

Third, why does no one care?  Trump makes an off-comment about “a gold star mother,” and the news media goes nuts.  Trump’s comments don’t make any difference about anything really important.  Hillary “negotiated” the Iran deal.  In effect, she set a dangerous precedence that puts additional American lives at stake, fast tracks Iran’s nuclear capability, and gives the largest state sponsor of terror huge sums of money.  Hell, even Josh Earnest couldn’t deny that the money might be used to sponsor terror.  Just totally wrote it off, it it didn’t matter.

Long Live the Constitution!
