Pres. Biden caves to Iran

It appears that Iran’s tactics against the Biden administration have worked.

The Associated Press reports that President Joe Biden has agreed to ease the United States’ economic sanctions on Iran if Iran agrees to abide by former President Barrack Obama’s nuclear deal. 

Background

In recent weeks, representatives of China, Russia, Iran, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany have been holding talks in Vienna to discuss the possibility of getting the United States and Iran back into Obama’s Iran deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Former President Donald Trump withdrew America from the Iran deal because it was ineffective. He replaced it with economic sanctions. President Biden, in contrast, has been looking to revive the Iran deal.

Iran, however, hasn’t been making things easy for him.

The United States was not allowed to have a representative participate in the Vienna talks. Iran, in fact, made it a point to publicly state that it would neither directly or indirectly discuss the matter with the United States.

Iran, backed by China and Russia, has declared that the only solution here is for the Biden administration to lift all economic sanctions that have been imposed on the country by the United States.

The latest

The Associated Press reported on Wednesday that the Biden administration is willing to play ball with Iran.

According to the outlet, a senior U.S. official “said the U.S. through intermediaries has presented Iran with three baskets of sanctions: those it’s prepared to lift, those it’s not prepared to lift, and those that will require further study to determine if they are in fact appropriate for relief under the nuclear deal.”

The official did not say which sanctions fall into which category. And, Iran’s response to the offer has yet to be reported.

State Department spokesman Ned Price released a statement on Wednesday saying that there are “some signs of progress.” He added, though, that “we probably have a longer road ahead of us than we do in the rearview mirror at this point.”

Congressional Republicans will be sure to vigorously oppose the lifting of any sanctions against Iran, particularly considering that they just introduced a piece of legislation that would make the sanctions placed on Iran by Trump permanent. The Biden administration, nonetheless, appears determined to get America back into the lopsided agreement.

  2. Trum,p put sanctions on them because they would not abide by the agreement. So they lie again, and Stupid believes them.

  3. The Arizona audit should be the beginning of the end for Biden, et al…by revealing the fraud and the stolen election. The Deep State won’t like this one bit and will create a complete blackout on TV, internet, and mobile phones…our military will then have the right to arrest these frauds and take over the country via the Constitution, until a rightful leader is put into place. We are at the precipuce now.. most people are awake and can see what the Dems and RINOs are really all about- fascism.

  4. Biden is an anti-American traitor and violating his oath of office and should be charged with treason. Wish we had more men and fewer RINOs in the GOP
