Rushing back into the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also called the Iran nuclear deal, would be a singularly seismic event leading to chaos and instability in the Middle East.

U.S. President Joe Biden has inherited a relatively peaceful Middle East—not without its challenges—but one marked by historic peace agreements between several Arab countries and Israel after decades without movement on the recognition of Israel. Conversely, through U.S. sanctions and Iran’s own ineptitude and mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic, Iran’s economy has been left paralyzed and vulnerable. From a negotiating perspective, Biden has plenty of leverage.

Yet last week, the Wall Street Journal reported the Biden administration is considering lifting terrorism-related sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran. In other words, after promising in congressional testimony for a longer and stronger deal with Iran, Biden’s diplomatic team is instead rushing toward accommodation. Although returning to the JCPOA will not happen overnight, it could easily happen this year. And if Biden returns the United States to a JCPOA 2.0, it could reverse positive momentum in the Middle East by destabilizing the peaceful balance of power Biden inherited.

[SIZE=6]The JCPOA infused Iran with cash.[/SIZE]

Right before the United States reimposed sanctions in 2018, Iran’s central bank controlled more than $120 billion in foreign exchange reserves. U.S. sanctions locked tens of those billions away in escrow accounts, and financial pressure forced Iran to draw down the accounts that remained open. After only two years of the maximum pressure campaign, Iran was down to a meager $4 billion in reserves. Meanwhile, U.S. energy sanctions cut Iran’s oil exports by more than 2 million barrels per day, depriving the regime of $70 billion that typically funds its budget.
The massive reversal of fortunes left Iran with barely any economic options, and the regime was forced to cut payments to its regional terror proxies. While Iran fended off collapse, much of the rest of the Middle East breathed a sigh of relief. Several countries in the region made historic peace with one another. Progress made by the Abraham Accords—which were struck in August 2020 by Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States—were contagious.

Alliances with Iran threaten to undo much of the progress made.

Right away, the regime could receive a payday of around $90 billion the moment Biden ends sanctions. After all, U.S. sanctions tied up $40 billion of oil and condensate sales in Asia and the Middle East while another $50 billion in funds remain inaccessible to the regime. Meanwhile, the restoration of the JCPOA would likely reinvigorate Iran’s oil exports, adding nearly $50 billion per year to the regime’s coffers at today’s market rate. Other economic sanctions would be lifted as well, bolstering the regime’s metals and petrochemicals sectors that are crucial to funding the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) foreign adventures. Iran’s economy will start to grow again, and it will not take any time for the suitcases of cash to find their way to Hamas or Hezbollah.

Those billions of dollars would go a long way for the leading state sponsor of terrorism. Iran’s entire military budget has been reduced to less than $20 billion a year. But historically, Iran spent more than $16 billion supporting allies in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen since 2012 and sent $700 million a year to Hezbollah.

There’s not much need for speculation regarding what Iran would use its sanctions relief for. Instead, just look to six years ago. Instead of spending funds on cancer research or infrastructure like promised, the regime’s defense budget reached record highs. The IRGC spread mayhem and death across the region, and the same thing could happen again.
Only this time, under the terms of the original JCPOA, nuclear restrictions on Iran are almost up. Within the decade, Iran will have no cap on nuclear enrichment quantity or quality, no cap on the number of centrifuge sophistication, no ban on the import and export of ballistic missiles, and the expiration of more than a dozen other prohibitions.
A revived JCPOA will start an arms race in the region, but Iran will have a running start. The enormous and difficult progress the United States has made will be undone. Despite this clear and present danger, Biden is rushing toward this fate.
Under the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, signed into law by then-U.S. President Barack Obama, the executive branch must submit the text of any deal relating to Iran’s nuclear program to Congress. Congress would then have 30 days to review and vote on the deal. Biden’s State Department is preparing a legal maneuver around these rules though. If it succeeds in brokering a deal, the State Department may claim the United States is simply reentering the same deal Congress reviewed (and the U.S. House of Representatives rejected on a bipartisan basis) in 2015. Never mind Iran’s nuclear program and the U.S. sanctions’ infrastructure is far different from that of 2015.
But the review act also provides an opportunity for the majority or minority leader in either chamber to submit legislation that would block the sanctions relief Biden is seeking to negotiate, and that legislation is guaranteed an automatic vote on the floor of the Senate and House of Representatives. Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell and House minority leader Kevin McCarthy should exercise this right and put members of Congress on record whether they support sending billions of dollars to the largest state sponsor of terrorism.
Negotiations with Iran could be worthwhile, but members of Congress and the American people deserve to have transparency in this process and should hold the Biden administration accountable to what it promised: a better deal.

sijaielewa these strange bedfellows…K.S.A hates Iran,U.S is inlove with K.S.A,Iran hates U.S but U.S bails out Iran…to spite K.S.A?[ATTACH=full]362181[/ATTACH][ATTACH=full]362182[/ATTACH]
i guess the enemy of my enemy is my friend ?


Nilikuwa naskia there’s a factory in Iran dedicated to manufacturing American flags that are burned during anti-America protests. Noma sana :D:D:D
At this point, the only way to stop Iran from getting the bomb is to undertake a costly and disastrous invasion and no one has the appetite for such shenanigans. Besides, everyone else but Trump and Israel liked that JCPOA deal. If Israel can have nuclear weapons, why shouldn’t Iran? Wacha watu walimane na zana za kinyuklia, dunia iishe, wale watu wachache watabaki waanzie stone age tena.

Pesa si ya mama yenu.

Funny thing is that young Iranians are very smart, tech savvy and irreligious to a great extent. Iran if the Mullahs were not in charge would be richer than Israel.

Saudi Arabia on the other hand is bubbling with Islamism and the clerics are very powerful. If Akina MBS were deposed, KSA would be ruled by AL Qaeda types.

Lindsey Graham is a goddamn liar. “Use my words against me” LOL. I stopped reading as soon as I saw his name. However I can clearly tell this is just another MAGAT shedding tears over Biden. It’s only day 100 out of 4 years. Get used to crying :smiley:

no sh1t! kumbe nikushienz both countries namna hio na vile ziko na pesa kuruka

If they didn’t get so many bloody economic sanctions and sabotaged from US and Israhell.

You really are an idiot. This news is in every of your leftist fake news media outlets starting from March this year.

In early March this year , Iraq was ordered by Biden to release $6 billion held in escrow as sanctions against Iran by Trump and Iraq complied immediately and handed the $6 billion to Iran ! And that is just the start. Ndio hizo links juu huna Google. Israel has been abandoned just like that :

[SIZE=7]Iran says US approved release of frozen Iranian assets in Iraq[/SIZE][B]Yaghoub Fazeli, Al Arabiya English[/B]

An Iranian trade official said Friday the US green-lit the release of Iranian funds that have been frozen in Iraq due to US sanctions.

Citing Iraqi sources, Hamid Hosseini, board member of the Iran-Iraq Joint Chamber of Commerce, said Washington has approved the release of frozen Iranian assets at the Trade Bank of Iraq.

“Several transactions have [already] been made,” Hosseini wrote on Twitter, without mentioning the value of the assets.

US sanctions have prevented Iran from accessing tens of billions of its assets in foreign banks.
Iranian frozen assets in Iraq amount to more than $6 billion, according to Iranian officials.
The release of Iran’s frozen assets will help with the “provision of essential items” for the public ahead of the Iranian new year and the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, Hosseini said.
Under US sanctions, Iraq pays the money for gas bought from Iran to an account at the Trade Bank of Iraq, which Tehran is only allowed to use to buy humanitarian goods from Iraq itself.
Last October, the head of the Iran-South Korea Chamber of Commerce said the release of Iranian frozen funds in South Korea, which he said are worth $8.5 billion, depended on the outcome of the US presidential election.
Iran’s economy has been hit hard since 2018 when former US President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers and reimposed sweeping sanctions on the country.
Last month, South Korea said it reached an agreement with Iran over the release of Tehran’s frozen funds in South Korean banks but signalled that the agreement was effectively subject to US approval.

Good job by Biden. Good to see him defying the Zionist terrorists

Once again you have proven that you are not the sharpest tool in the shed. Is the US gov. considering unfreezing some Iran assets? Yes. Is that a bailout by any stretch? No. It’s just Lindsey lying his ass off as usual. I have taken the trouble to find you the coupon below. Make use of it. Then you’ll have a grand total of two of brain cells :smiley:

[SIZE=5]Do you know what the word bailout means? It means you have something less in this case foreign currencies and someone gives you assistance which can be a loan, a grant, unfreezing sanctioned bank accounts etc to bail you out from collapse. You are simply bailing Iran out from collapse.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]The leftist New York Times used the same word not so long ago :[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]The Times as well :[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]Others :[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]Of course when it came to Obama the word bailout as concerns Iran was taboo. Obama gave $150 billion bailout to Iran.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]But in fact you are very correct, the right word should not be bailout but in fact should be BRIBE.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=5]Bribing Iran to stop building nukes. Biden and Obama bribed Iran with billions of dollars for Iran to stop building nukes![/SIZE]

For once I agree with you the correct word in this case should in fact be bribed.

Americans do love twisting words.

Really? So you can bribe a person with their own money?

Yes if it is sanctioned money.

Do you know what sanctions are?
