You mean leverage frozen Iranian assets we kept since 1979 that international courts were demanding we release, but don't let the truth get in your way.

By the way the US-Israel-Iran war could very well cost taxpayers in the trillions if Trump is forced to ramp it up because of his horrendous decision to violate the Iran Nuclear deal. Most estimates but the two useless wars of George W in the 3 trillion range for taxpayer dollars.

Diplomacy is always cheaper.

Why did we pay for the failed arms deal to Iran in cash of various currency?  This issues was left open almost 40 years?  Paid in cash; oh and happens the same time they freed some prisoners and we signed a week nuclear deal best described as agreeing to the full search and inspection of a known serial killers house; * except the basement**** wink wink 


Paid in cash due to the sanctions against banking with Iran that were in place at the time. The courts could have awarded interest that would have driven it into the billions. Instead we leveraged it into a lower payment with no interest after 40 years, hostages and a nuclear deal roughly 10,000% stronger than Trump was able to secure with Korea. Any further questions?

Oh shit, Iran has fired back with its own all-caps tweet:

"NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!"

-- Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America


"COLOR US UNIMPRESSED"

-- Mohammad Javad Sharif, the Foreign Minister of Iran
