Iran Proves Republicans Are Full Of Crap As United Nations Says Nuclear Deal Has Been Honored
Iran is fulfilling their obligations under the nuclear deal reached with the Obama Administration, and Republicans can’t handle being proven wrong by those they consider enemies.
On Saturday morning, Iran released several Americans from jail. Among them included Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, pastor Saeed Abedini, and former marine Amir Hekmati. As you may recall, Republicans repeatedly used the imprisonment of these three men as a reason to oppose the nuclear deal and demanded that President Obama make their release a condition of the negotiations.
But President Obama wisely refused to tangle the two issues, which kept the nuclear deal alive while preserving a future opportunity to bring the prisoners home.
And on Saturday, President Obama’s wisdom paid off, as all three men have been released just as the deal goes into effect. Not only that, but the United Nations has announced that Iran has honored the terms of the deal in a statement by International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano.

In other words, Iran met their obligations and showed the world that Republicans were full of bulls*it every time they demonized the deal or accused Iran of not cooperating.
Even Secretary of State John Kerry took a victory lap around those who doubted the deal would succeed, calling the deal an “ambitious set of promises” that Iran is keeping, which makes the entire world safer.
Clearly, the deal is working and Iran must continue to honor it since other sanctions won’t be lifted for another ten years down the road. For now, however, Iran is working with the world and the world is rewarding them by lifting sanctions.
This deal will go down in history as one of the greatest achievements of President Obama’s time in office, and will go down as a humiliating defeat for Republicans. The GOP hoped to sabotage the deal in preference of war with Iran that would cost thousands of lives and add even more to our national debt.
It’s likely they are furious that they failed so badly, but they should really be embarrassed that they stood in the way of history and the diplomatic negotiations that brought the deal to fruition. They acted like little toddlers who didn’t get their way while the Iranians and President Obama were the adults in the room. And the results make it absolutely clear that Republicans do not have what it takes to lead or make American foreign policy.
