They are a Sunni terror support network. All Saudi assets should be frozen and used to build refugee camps in Jordan and Turkey.

Can I ask, were 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 from Iran?
Was Osama bin Laden from Iran?
Did the San Bernadino shooters travel to Iran?
Are the Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban and Boko Haram terrorists receiving funding, arms and support from Iran?????

But most Americans would not be able to answer any of these questions correctly.

That’s why any time there are minor concessions to improve the situations in diplomacy with Tehran, the Iranians will proceed with missile tests and the firing of missiles in the Gulf when international naval vessels are present. The Iranians exist on working to flout the requirements and international regulations they are to operate within. The mentality is they are above the laws, but also above all others in the Middle East.

The second issue is who is actually running the country in Iran. It’s the Supreme Council and the Revolutionary Guards. They are the decision makers and derive revenue from operating in the black market. Do they really want the sanctions to go away?

Hypocrites.
