Senate Foreign Relations Committee Upside Down Policy On Russia and Iran
Last year, Russia attacked the United States. Spies sent by Vladimir Putin, in apparent coordination with members of the Donald Trump for President campaign, worked to change the outcome of the presidential election.
Iran did not attack the United States. Iran has kept its commitments under the agreement with the United States, preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
So, what is the reaction of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee?
Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the committee, explained yesterday that, “We’re not going to do a Russia sanctions bill. The ranking member and I are in strong agreement on a pathway forward and that’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to do an Iran sanctions bill.”
Are foreign leaders getting the message? If you keep to your agreements with the USA, you will be punished with sanctions. If you attack the United States, however, there won’t be any sanctions against you – so keep at it.
