This deal — and I know you must be sick of me saying this — keeps getting worse all the time:

Abbas Araghchi, Iran’s deputy foreign minister, said that he insisted during the negotiations that Iran be able to purchase and ship military hardware at any time and from any place, according to the comments made on state-controlled television.

Araghchi vowed “to buy weapons from wherever possible, and [said that Iran] is to provide weapons to whomever and whenever it considers appropriate,” according to a translation of his comments made by the Open Source Center.

The issue of Iran’s ability to purchase and move arms has emerged as a key concern among critics of the Obama administration’s deal. As part of the agreement, Iran will allowed to import and export weapons.

Araghchi claimed that the deal goes further. Iran will not adhere to any current restrictions of its arms trade, he said.

Why did anyone think lifting sanctions for any reason could possibly be a good idea?

Soon Iran will have the entire globe as its arms bazaar, and a whopping $100,000,000,000 shopping budget.
