Virtually all critics of the deal make reference to trusting the Iranians to live up to the agreement aimed at curbing their nuclear program in exchange for lifting economic sanctions. These critics refuse to see the very comprehensive inspection program that accompanies the deal; and they refuse to relate to the inspection program in Iraq that revealed a truth we didn't want to acknowledge.
For most critics, theirs is a 'knee jerk' reaction to any dealing with Iran, part of the "axis of evil". Those wanting to criticize also ignore the billions of dollars involved in this deal.
the sanctions that led to this deal depended on the participation of those other countries. But because they previously traded a lot with Iran, they were also suffering a lot from the sanctions. America didn't have strong trade ties with Iran in the first place, so it felt much less economic pain. But Germany and China didn't want to give up the money they could make from Iran forever. If Obama walked away from this deal, these countries would likely have given up on sanctions altogether — and the prospect of a "better deal" would have vanished.
This is a very basic, fundamental point, but no deal critic has been able to answer it in a remotely plausible fashion. That's probably because the supposed "better deal" is 100 percent fictional. It was never a real option — just a myth made up to obscure the truth that this deal was the best one available. (source)
The U.S. immediately makes a sale of 5.4 billion dollars worth of interceptors missiles to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who as our proxy warrior in the region is bombing Yemen civilians. The particular missiles are theoretically used for defense against incoming aircraft and missiles. It is difficult to imagine what nation (other than Israel) could have the interest and/or capacity to attack Saudi Arabia from the air. And, with current events, that's not very likely.
Since the beginning of 2014, representatives from Israel and Saudi Arabia have had five secret meetings to discuss a common foe, Iran. On Thursday, the two countries came out of the closet by revealing this covert diplomacy at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington. (source)
And, we're talking about 'real' money here. The weapons deal includes the sale to Saudi Arabia of 500 million dollars worth of ammunition. That is in addition to the fact that in April, Riyadh bought 2 billion dollars worth of Patriots.
And there's more, last week, the Pentagon bought $1.5 billion worth of Patriots for Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Taiwan, South Korea and for Saudi Arabia all over again. We must really love the way those Saudis bomb those civilians in Yemen and we certainly don't want them running out of equipment, especially considering the profit margins in war materiel.
He did that by continually stating that the Iran deal did not mean peace with Tehran and went as far as saying that military action against Iran was still on the table. It seems Carter was also there to seal billion of dollars worth of arm sales to the Middle East allies. (source)
To wage war in Yemen, Saudi Arabia is using F-15 fighter jets bought from Boeing. Pilots from the United Arab Emirates are flying Lockheed Martin’s F-16 to bomb both Yemen and Syria. Soon, the Emirates are expected to complete a deal with General Atomics for a fleet of Predator drones to run spying missions in their neighborhood.
As the Middle East descends into proxy wars, sectarian conflicts and battles against terrorist networks, countries in the region that have stockpiled American military hardware are now actually using it and wanting more. The result is a boom for American defense contractors looking for foreign business in an era of shrinking Pentagon budgets — but also the prospect of a dangerous new arms race in a region where the map of alliances has been sharply redrawn.
Last week, defense industry officials told Congress that they were expecting within days a request from Arab allies fighting the Islamic State — Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt — to buy thousands of American-made missiles, bombs and other weapons, replenishing an arsenal that has been depleted over the past year.

Those American bombs are aiding Al Qaeda (our supposed enemy). As the United States proxy (Saudi Arabia) attacks The Houthis, a militia that is considered Al Qaeda’s most determined foe, Al Qaeda grows stronger in Yemen.
The civilian death toll from four months of fighting in Yemen has risen to nearly 1,900, with at least 202 people killed over the past 12 days, according to the United Nations. The country is on the brink of famine due to the fighting.
So with the Iranian 'deal' and U.S. induced instability in the region there is money to be made. U.S. weapons manufacturers are at the front lines, and that's the truth !!!
