A terror state can wreak a lot of havoc with $ 50 billion. That’s how much an Iranian court has fined the USA:
An Iranian court on Monday issued a ruling fining the United States $ 50 billion for purported damages against the Islamic Republic and its citizens, according to an announcement by Iran's Judiciary.
Iran claims that the United States is guilty of inflicting "heavy loss and damage" on the country, as well as "killing the Iranian nationals by assisting their enemies," such as former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, according to Iran's state-controlled Fars News Agency.
The ruling charges "the U.S. administration with the payment of a total 50-billion-dollar fine for the losses it has incurred on real and legal entities," according to Fars.
Maybe the ayatollahs are developing a sense of humor:
The report goes on to accuse the United States of aiding "different terrorist groups against Tehran."
Iran has been the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism for decades.
Where have we heard that number $ 50 billion before? Right here:
The State Department … would not rule out giving Iran up to $ 50 billion as a so-called "signing bonus" for agreeing to a nuclear deal later this year, according to comments made to journalists following reports that the Obama administration had formulated a plan to release tens of billions of frozen Iranian funds.
Experts have said this multi-billion dollar "signing bonus" option, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, could be the largest cash infusion to a terror-backing regime in recent memory.
As part of the agreement, the P5+1 has agreed to unfreeze tens of billions of dollars in Iranian assets, with some estimates reaching $ 140 billion.
Will the ayatollahs spend the money on lollipops for the poor? Or will they keep funding terrorism and propping up tyrannical regimes as in Syria, and pour more money into their nuclear weapons program now that Obama has given it the green light? We’ll soon find out.
