Of course they aren't. When liberal bozos make a deal with the Devil, you will get burned. No brainer.



President Obama on Friday criticized Iranian leaders for undermining the “spirit” of last year’s historic nuclear agreement, even as they stick to the “letter” of the pact.

In comments following the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, Obama denied speculation that the United States would ease rules preventing dollars from being used in financial transactions with Iran, in order to boost the country’s engagement with the rest of the world.

Instead, Obama claimed, that Iran’s troubles even after the lifting of sanctions under the nuclear deal were due to its continued support of Hezbollah, ballistic missile tests and other aggressive behavior.

I listened to his speech and he wasn't referring to the nuclear agreement....he was referring to Iran not being friendly to American businesses and then wondering why big business deals aren't being made.

When they launch ballistic missiles with slogans calling for the destruction of Israel, that makes businesses nervous.”
gee..do you think??
The Iran deal was repeatedly sold as "no linkage" to ANYTHING ELSE.. Not missiles, not Iranian hegemony in the region,
not recognition of Israel, not - not seizing US salors - not funding arms to Yemen...not limiting Iranian forces/Quds ..(etc)

So why is it surprising that the Regime is not changing it's bellicose ways? The deal was a give away.
We got delays in the nuclear material,
but Iran keeps working on ballistic missiles ( which are obviously not going to be used for conventional weapons)

so what did we gain? not much. and we gave away the store.
