I hope there are hands up all over. We definitely need new sanctions against Iran. Because Iran is not trustworthy. And what has happened since we lifted sanctions after the ill-conceived Iran nuclear deal?
They “celebrated” with a ballistic missile launch. There was a prisoner exchange of sorts. They made our sailors kneel with their hands behind their heads.
And the United States government sent them $1.7 billion. That’s $400 million we “owed” them, and–wait for it–$1.3 billion in interest. That’s quite a certificate of deposit they had with us.
Honestly, does anyone–anyone–think Iran has changed its ways? Will they stop pursuing a nuclear program for weapons? Will they stop supporting terrorism? Will they stop threatening Israel? You know the answers.
The only thing that has made them stop anything in recent years? Sanctions.
