Thanks for the additional details -

The money was not "sent" to Iran, it was RETURNED to Iran, and our relations with Iran began to greatly improve to the point they agreed to dismantle their nuclear weapons program.

 

Everyone who signed the Nuclear Agreement with Iran verified they were living up to their end of the bargain, INCLUDING THE US INSPECTORS, but donny needed to rev his bigotbase, so now Iran is back on track to become a Nuclear Power THANKS ENTIRELY TO THE INFANTILE ToadPOTUS.

So very shortly we'll have a Nuclear armed Iran, thanks to the moron the KGB slithered into the White House, with the help of many Dems who wrote in Bernie or decided to sit out 2016.

 

 


Would you suggest that Trump send a planeload of money to Iran as the real ToadPOTUS (Obama) did before?


Yet ANOTHER Republican Zombie LIE.

The money was Iran's from the get-go- they sent it to us for military hardware we refused to deliver when they took our Embassy in the Iranian Revolution. When we settled our differences and they agreed to ABANDON their Nuclear weapons program, we RETURNED THEIR money.

You must be ranting about the THREE CARGO PLANES OF $100 BILLS- 363 TONS of CASH - $12,000,000,000.00 -  jrbush handed to Iraqis without a single recept to show where it really went, but which showed up in ISIS fighters' pay envelopes for YEARS afterwards.

Nah, to both,,,,Trump is playing with fire - he wants Iran to retaliate, but they, like many other nations now understand the game that Donald plays and it is all about bluffing.   

 

    The news that is being spread by US is that Iran is rebuilding its nuclear weapons that it never had.    What it is doing is posturing, just like Donald.    Are they increasing the processing, yes, but people in the RW are too uniformed or lazy to know / remember that they self-imposed a cut on themselves as a show of good faith with the UN proposal that was hammered out when President Obama was in charge.    They have never produced the amount of uranium that was agreed upon in the Treaty and donald et al can't tell the world that they have been calling Iran's bluff and got caught lying to the world.

 

ICYMI:   Pompeo attempted to get Iraq to fight with Iran ( via sanctions) and they told him to go pound sand.
