Bullheaded Obama Begins Implementing Iran Nuke Deal

Obama continues to ram headfirst through the brick wall of doubts.

On Sunday, Iran was supposed to start dismantling some 15,000 centrifuges and the U.S. was supposed to start giving Iran that $150 billion in sanctions relief. So far, only Barack Obama has announced that he will hold up his end of the Iran nuclear deal. “I hereby direct you to take all appropriate additional measures to ensure the prompt and effective implementation of the U.S. commitments set forth in the JCPOA, in accordance with U.S. law,” Obama wrote in a memorandum to the secretaries of State, Treasury, Commerce and Energy. That announcement came after Iran announced last week that it test-fired a ballistic missile capable of delivering a payload to Israel, something that the U.S. condemned as violating UN Security Council Resolution 1929, which imposed further sanctions against the country. That was followed by an Iran state media segment that showed a tunnel filled with medium and long-range ballistic missiles. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a general in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, said there are many such installations scattered across the nation in case, y'know, “enemies make a mistake.” Still, Obama continues to ram headfirst through the brick wall of doubts about his deal. Of the reports of Iran’s militarization, his administration said the deal that’s supposed to ensure a nuclear-weapon free Iran is not contingent on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s investigation into the possible weaponization of Iran’s nuclear program, a report due Dec. 15. Meanwhile, no U.S. aircraft carrier is floating in Middle Eastern waters as the deal takes effect, which shows that Obama is willing to sit on his hands, wishing the best intentions from Iran. Iran’s enemies, indeed, have made a mistake.
