Walk away from Obama’s trough?  Of course, Iran can walk away now, after reaping all the financial benefits of the nuclear deal. $150 billion to fund worldwide Islamic terror.

Not only did they breach the terms by test-firing ballistic missiles, Iran fired missiles with “Israel must be wiped out” written on them in Hebrew.

“Iran Threatens to Walk Away From Nuke Deal After New Missile Test,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, March 8, 2016:

Iran on Tuesday again threatened to walk away from the nuclear agreement reached last year with global powers, hours after the country breached international agreements by test-firing ballistic missiles.

Iran’s most recent ballistic missile test, which violates current U.N. Security Council resolutions, comes a day after the international community’s nuclear watchdog organization disclosed that it is prohibited by the nuclear agreement from publicly reporting on potential violations by Iran.

Iranian leaders now say that they are poised to walk away from the deal if the United States and other global powers fail to advance the Islamic Republic’s “national interests.”

“If our interests are not met under the nuclear deal, there will be no reason for us to continue,” Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister, warned during remarks delivered to a group of Iranian officials in Tehran.

“If other parties decide, they could easily violate the deal,” Araqchi was quoted as saying by Iran’s state-controlled media. “However, they know this will come with costs.”

Araqchi appeared to allude to the United States possibly leveling new economic sanctions as a result of the missile test. The Obama administration moved forward with new sanctions earlier this year as a result of the country’s previous missile tests.

Iran’s latest missile test drew outrage from longtime regime critics on Capitol Hill.

“The administration’s response to Iran’s new salvo of threatening missile tests in violation of international law cannot once again be, it’s ‘not supposed to be doing that,’” Sen. Mark Kirk (R., Ill.) said in a statement. “Now is the time for new crippling sanctions against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Ministry of Defense, Aerospace Industries Organization, and other related entities driving the Iranian ballistic missile program.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) warned that the nuclear agreement has done little to moderate Iran’s rogue behavior.

“Far from pushing Iran to a more moderate engagement with its neighbors, this nuclear deal is enabling Iran’s aggression and terrorist activities,” McCarthy said in a statement. “Sanctions relief is fueling Iran’s proxies from Yemen to Iraq to Syria to Lebanon. Meanwhile, Khamenei and the Iranian regime are acting with impunity because they know President Obama will not hold them accountable and risk the public destruction of his nuclear deal, the cornerstone of the president’s foreign policy legacy.”

McCarthy went on to demand that the Obama administration step forward with new sanctions as punishment for the missile test….

    What ‘agreement’? Have the Iranians ratified anything? I don’t think so. I do not think the President knows what an international treaty actual is.

    The fool of a president has produced a media event to showcase his foreign policy ‘acumen.’ Having given them everything they want, Obama expects Iran to act as if he has actually achieved something, just for show back home. But, Iran even refuses to do that!

    There is no credible threat to stop Iran from doing whatever they want. Hence, Iran taunts the US by capturing US sailors on the high sea. No more proof is required.

  • Metatrona

    At heart, Muslims really like to participate in same sex rape and pedophilia. That’s probably why they forcibly razor off a woman’s clitoris…so she gets no pleasure from sex.

  • Shows exactly how ignorant, stupid, and Tyrannical the Kenyan Muslim Queen, B. Hussein Obama, and his lapdog, John Kerry truly are! Truly Pathetic and Obama knew this was going to happen all along! It is his Jihadist Duty to help supply Islam with Money and Arms and he has been doing his best, supplying ISIS with Arms and Funds, Iran with Arms and Funds, while all the while weakening the American Military, stripping our Vets of $200 Billion in Benefits and turning around and giving his Syrian Refugees over $400 Billion! This is Tyranny against our Nation, against our Troops, and against all that is Good and Right! Our military needs to remove this Jerkoff Coward, Obama, with any means available, like a 7.62mm Lead Lobotomy!
