Do you feel like you’re trapped in the middle of a TV reality show based on Rod Sterling’s “Twilight Zone?” If you don’t feel that way yet, you will when you finish reading this.
Earlier this week, as final details of the “deal” John Kerry negotiated with Iran were being worked out, another similarly (un)favorable deal was being done in a different room. Iranian lawyers were high fiving themselves for being awarded a $5 BILLION settlement after suing the United States government.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon:
An Iranian court on Monday issued a ruling fining the United States $50 billion for purported damages against the Islamic Republic and its citizens, according to an announcement by Iran’s Judiciary.
Iran claims that the United States is guilty of inflicting “heavy loss and damage” on the country, as well as “killing the Iranian nationals by assisting their enemies,” such as former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, according to Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.The ruling charges “the U.S. administration with the payment of a total 50-billion-dollar fine for the losses it has incurred on real and legal entities,” according to Fars. The report goes on to accuse the United States of aiding “different terrorist groups against Tehran.”
Isn’t it an amazing coincidence that on the very day the “get nukes later” non nuclear treaty is signed, Iranian courts declare we owe them $50 billion? Perhaps the Obama administration will hand over $50 BILLION and call it a signing bonus?
This “deal” may be the biggest shakedown in history.
