Pay Day for the Mullahs


Hassan-RouhaniIran is receiving $550 million of its frozen oil revenues under the interim nuclear deal the Obama administration has pushed forward with Iran. The United States “helped facilitate the transfer” of the funds to Iran through unnamed foreign banks according to Reuters, citing a U.S. Treasury spokeswoman.  Iran’s official IRNA news agency has reported that the $550 million already has been transferred to Iran’s Central Bank account in Switzerland. This transfer is just the first installment of the $4.2 billion of blocked Iranian oil revenues held abroad that the U.S. has committed to help unfreeze.

“The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them,” Vladimir Lenin once famously said. The Obama administration is going one step further. It is involved in handing the mullahs money with no strings attached, which they will undoubtedly use for a further military build-up with which to threaten the United States and its allies.

Consider the following chilling words from a top Iran military official, Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami, as quoted by the Daily Caller on February 1st.  He made these remarks during a televised interview:

America, with its strategic ignorance, does not have a full understanding of the power of the Islamic Republic.  We have recognized America’s military strategy, and have arranged our abilities, and have identified centers in America [for attack] that will create a shock. We will conduct such a blow in which they [America] will be destroyed from within.

Another top Iranian military official said last month: “Know that a direct conflict with America is the strongest dream of the faithful and revolutionary men around the world.”

Consider that nothing in the interim agreement stops Iran from continuing its research and development of a nuclear triggering device.  The money flowing to Iran, as the Obama administration opens the spigot wider and wider, will help pay for it.

Consider too that nothing in the interim agreement stops Iran from continuing to develop or acquire long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles which can reach the United States and Europe, as well as Israel. Indeed, the latest annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Community” states that Iran “wants to improve its nuclear and missile capabilities” on which it has already “made technical progress.”

This same intelligence assessment warned of the continued danger that North Korea will remain an exporter of ballistic missiles and nuclear technology to Iran. Nothing in the interim nuclear agreement would hamper Iran’s ability to use the money we are letting loose to purchase nuclear materials or weapons from its buddies in Pyongyang. Instead of oil-for-food, as the fault-ridden program in Iraq was known, the Obama administration is enabling an unfrozen-oil-revenues-for-weapons program.

Among the non-nuclear-related weapons that a senior Iranian Air Force commander just announced Iran is planning to build are semi-heavy and training jets. The announcement was made on February 3rd – the very day the first installment of Iran’s frozen oil revenues was released.  The plan to build the jets was sent to senior officials to receive their approval, and “once approved, the Defense Industries will start building them,” the senior Air Force commander, Islamic Republic Air Force Chief Liaison Officer General Aziz Nasirzadeh, said. “We have taken very good measures in producing aircraft ammunition, long-range ammunition and smart missiles,” he added. Now Iran will have more money in its hands to continue to do so.

Iran will also be able to obtain insurance, previously subject to sanctions, for the tankers carrying its crude oil to its remaining major customers in China, India, Japan, Korea, Turkey and Taiwan. This will mean “Iran’s crude oil exports will not decline and our customers will be able to purchase oil from Iran without any anxiety and they will not have to look for alternatives to Iran crude oil,” Ali Majedi, a deputy minister for international affairs and trading explained.  And with the lifting of sanctions on Iran’s petrochemical industry as part of the interim agreement, Iran will be able to increase its hard currency revenues from that source as well. Again, Iran will get its hands on more money to pay for further militarization and to fund its mischief in the Middle East and beyond, thanks to the current lifting of sanctions under the interim agreement.

The Intelligence Assessment referenced above describes just some of the mischief that Iran and its proxy Hezbollah are pursuing, in addition to Iran’s continued work on developing a nuclear arms capacity:

Outside of the Syrian theater, Iran and Lebanese Hizballah [Hezbollah] continue to directly threaten the interests of US allies. Hizballah has increased its global terrorist activity in recent years to a level that we have not seen since the 1990s…Iran will continue to act assertively abroad in ways that run counter to US interests and worsen regional conflicts. Iranian officials almost certainly believe that their support has been instrumental in sustaining Assad’s regime in Syria and will probably continue support during 2014 to bolster the regime. In the broader Middle East, Iran will continue to provide arms and other aid to Palestinian groups, Huthi rebels in Yemen, and Shia militants in Bahrain to expand Iranian influence and to counter perceived foreign threats.

In short, the Obama administration and its fellow negotiators of the interim agreement with Iran have sent Iran the first installment of money, with more to come, that Iran will turn around and cheerfully use against us.

    This is infuriating and sickening, but exactly what we all knew was coming. From the time Obama ignored the pleas for help from Iran’s democracy movement, to his planned failure to secure a status of forces agreement with Iraq, to his meddling in the “Arab Spring,” to his destabilization of Libya, Obama has consistently made it clear that he intends to enable radical Islam wherever he can. Equally clear is that he is the enemy of Israel and the United States. Every thing he has done to our military has made it weaker, and everything he has done in the Middle East makes Israel’s situation more perilous.

    Obama is on the side of evil, always. He is the Meccan Horse.

    • Hassan

      I guess a president who doesn’t start several wars in his presidency is considered weak in America. Wasn’t it the Americans themselves who stated in Nuremberg that it was a capital offense to start “aggressive war”? Time to hang Rumsfeld, Chaney and Bush, I guess. Hypocrites.

      • truebearing

        All Muslims do is start wars. It is required by the Quran. Any president enabling the evil agenda of Islam is evil himself. Your comment about American presidents is nonsense and the prattle of a robotic muslim fool.

        I see you are just trying to support our Muslim president in his efforts to build a caliphate and tear down the US. I’m sure all of you insane losers feel the same way.

You may think of us as decedent, weak and helpless in the face of the Islamic onslaught, well haji when the time comes, your cities will burn to ash and your fellow sub humans living amongst us will be hunted down to the last man. You laugh at us today, tomorrow, your allah isn’t going to be able to save your worthless azzes from our wrath. Deo Volente!

      You had me until you mentioned “radical islam”.

      • truebearing

        Calling it radical Islam doesn’t automatically mean that I don’t think islam itself is radical. I do, but I like to always cast Islam in the negative light it deserves. It is useful to point out that Obama supports the most radical, homicidal, genocidal, perverted elements within Islam. We agree about Islam. We just may have different strategies at exposing it, and Imambama.

        • Hari Rai Kaur

          ISLAM itself IS RADICAL.

    • ZZ

      Yes he certainly is the greatest champion of islam since muhammad. I’ve been trying to get people to realize this for five years now. The Obamatollah also does all he can to destabilize secular islamic regimes. It’s painfully obvious to see. This cash award is just his latest push to help the mullahs get their nukes. That piece of crap is much worse than most people are willing to accept. Nobody who voted for him has an ounce of sense, and nobody who still supports him has an ounce of humanity.

  • Hassan

    A wise decision. What a crushing defeat for the US warmongers.

      I thought it was you ragheads who had the obligation to wage war.

        Don’t worry. We’ll conquer Europe and the USA (demographically) without a single shot being fired. Conquest does not necessarily mean war, you know.

          Since America has turned Muslim, that is possible because GOD has removed HIS protection from the country. When we threw HIM out, Satan came in and is destroying the country. BUT GOD still has many people here and HE will protect us. HE will soon clean clean the world up, and when HE has cleaned all of the rubbish from the earth HE will discard it and give us a new heaven and a new earth. This can be found in HIS WORD, check it out with special care for Israel!.

    • truebearing

      It wasn’t 300 million that missed it. There aren’t 300 million people of voting age, and roughly half of those who voted, voted against him. In the last election, his Commie Mafia rigged the key states of Florida, Ohio, and others in order to win. That being said, we do have a huge number of imbeciles who did vote for him.

  • Dajjal

    We should do what the Great Ronald Reagan did: sell the Iranians weapons.

    • alericKong

      It was to release hostages, stop the Soviets from taking over Latin America, pre-empt Soviet diplomacy with a Soviet moderate faction after the death of khomeini and involved anti-tank missiles not nukes. It wouldn’t have happen if John Kerry cut off Congressional funding to Latin America, which would likely cause Mexico to go communist.

      Obama is removing sanctions involving nuclear weapons with no other objective except for self-interest and politics for himself and John Kerry.

    • truebearing

      I say we give Iran its nukes, via ICBM delivery.

  • The Facts

    Mr. Klein clearly prefers the national interests of Israel over the national interests of the United States. It is exactly this kind of disloyalty that makes Americans resentful of Zionist writers. Israel doesn’t want perpetual stalemate in the Middle East. They want domination ordered as take-out. Mr. Klein is satisfied to pose as superpatriot and break the US economy by getting us into a proxy World War III. It just means he’s not a red blooded American. He’s an Israeli at heart.

    • reader

      Clearly not. Giving money to the islamonazi regime bent on developing nuclear weapons is not in the national interests of the United States. Obama – and his minions – clearly prefer muslim brotherhood interests over the national interests of the United States.

    Iran!!! Likely our greatest enemy! $550,000to stock up on war machinery, or are we giving they that, also. Since we are selling out, they are supposed to pay us, instead of us paying them. So what is this all about? OH I GOT IT , THE ALREADY OWN US., there we must allow our people die for lack of money for clothing, for doctors for medication, for shelter, makes sense. Forget about those that do not have a home to live in.

    We kick GOD into the gutter so there will be no help from there.The only thing left is 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
    13. But I would not have you to be ignorant brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as others.
    14. For if we believe that JESUS died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in JESUS will GOD bring with HIM.
    15. For this we say unto you be the WORD OF THE LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep.
    16. For the LORD HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shut, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of GOD; and the dead om CHRIST shall rise first.
    17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, l to meet the LORD int he air: and so shall we ever be wit the LORD.
    18. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

  • Mamabear

    Israel, the apple of G-d’s eyes..I just think of how they are the heart of G-d and they are my heart too. Dispite all that is happening, the last war coming , Israel will win it too. G-d talks about how all the nations will hate Israel and come against HER in the last days before He comes roaring thru Zion. making a grave yard near the sea , the one they would like to sink the Jews into. Israel saved the world by hitting the nuke plant in Iraq and they will hit the one in Iran , the Bushre. They have been so patient and still today more than help their enemies food wise medical and the world for that matter. Scripture tells us how Islam will be destroyed and all the nations coming after them to try to kill and take over Jerusalem will fail as their feet hit the G-d of Abaham ‘s land given to the Jews after a everlasting covenant, will destroy them , kill many on the land, chase them home, killing them on the way and following them into their nations and killing the men, women,children and the ox..He is a G-d of Justice as a loving G-d.

    Heavy economic sanctionsn have driven the Iranians to the bargaining table and fueled deep domestic pressure on its leadership to improve its international standing. So with all of the leverage on the side of the US and West, we extract an agreement that delivers nothing. No dismantling in centrifuges, no destruction of enriched uranium fuel, no condemnation of nuclear weapons, no liberalization of human rights abuses, no release of political prisoners as a gesture of goodwill, no lifting of media and internet blackouts, no halt in foreign interventions.
    Nothing.
