It seems that the US government is not short of money at all as it still has manpower monitoring across the globe for this sort of sanction activities. But why it was at the verge of shutting down last year? I don’t understand American politics and financial management.

Of course the government has money, it flows freely out of a printer. The US is provoking more anger at a time when we could do with less. It is all a desperate attempt to save the dollar and its privilege as the reserve currency. Everything is coming to a head and soon it will be on, on like Donkey Kong!

Iran has repeatedly ignored U.S. and United Nations demands to curtail the nuclear development needed to build weapons of mass destruction. Instead, Iran has been caught several times cheating or building secret nuclear sites. Iran’s Natanz and Fordow nuclear-fuel enrichment plants were both built in secret. In May 2011, the International Atomic Energy Agency warned of Iranian efforts “involving the removal of the conventional high-explosive payload from the warhead of the Shahab-3 missile and replacing it with a spherical nuclear payload. Ask yourself…Why would a country that is not trying to build a nuclear bomb even try to fit a nuclear payload onto a missile?

Based on Iran’s history of lies, deception and hostility, why should we believe they are playing square now? Giving Iran $7 billion( pluse 1 billion more) in cash while leaving in place one of the most sophisticated enrichment programs in the world is not an act of good faith; it is an act of appeasement.
