On the Iranian nuke deal, Iran is pushing the limits by perversely offering less. Why? Because it can!
Earlier this week, Iran hijacked a Marshall Islands cargo ship traveling through international waters – a country that the U.S. has full legal responsibility for the defense of.
That’s quite provocative is it not? An act of war, perhaps? And Obama did what? Nothing.
Not even, as far as I can tell, make a statement.
Yesterday in New York, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Foreign Minister, said that when Iran strikes a deal with the West, Obama will be forced to stop enforcing sanctions immediately, and will have to lift ALL congressional sanctions within weeks.
He specifically repudiated White House claims that sanctions would be phased out over an extended period.
In other words, he snubbed his nose at U.S. power. Is it any wonder?
