VIA |President Obama’s deal with Iran was a historic agreement that changed the course of the entire relationship between Iran and America and will likely lead to years of peace between the two countries by dissuading Iran from building a bomb and spreading terror around the world.
Just kidding. The deal has been an unmitigated disaster and not only is Iran continuing to launch missiles in defiance of U.N. resolutions but they are still charging full speed ahead with their funding of terror groups across the world.
So it shouldn’t surprise you that the U.S. just seized thousands of weapons on an Iranian ship that were on their way to the battlefield, possibly to kill American soldiers.
From Fox News:
The crew of a U.S. Navy ship stopped a massive Iranian arms shipment dead in its tracks, seizing thousands of weapons, AK-47 rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers that were likely headed to Yemen, the Pentagon announced Monday.
The seizure, which unfolded in the Arabian Sea on March 28, was the third of its kind in recent weeks, military officials say. Iran has been supporting Houthi rebels in Yemen in their proxy war against a Saudi-led coalition backed by the United States. Like Iran, the Houthis are a Shia-led group.
The arms shipment appears to mark the latest provocative action from the Islamic republic. On Friday, President Obama said Iran was obeying the “letter” of its landmark nuclear agreement with the West, but not the “spirit” of it.
The Navy said the shipment included 1,500 AK-47s, 200 rocket-propelled grenade launchers and 21 .50-caliber machine guns.
Even President Obama said the other day that Iran isn’t honoring the “spirit” of the deal.
Translation: That’s weird, Iran isn’t following the deal.
There is little doubt that this Iran deal will go down as one of the biggest foreign policy blunders in recent memory and clearly Iran is not even remotely abiding by it.
