    Trump is not smart enough to deal with this problem, sanctioning Iran furthermore is not a solution.

    The more he does sanctions, the more it will back fire at him. Iran will look to disrupt more.

    Iran has never obliged and will never. Very wrong approach. Also foreign policy of Trump with NK is a joke. NK enjoyed the limelight and circus. Trump is clueless. Forcible agreements can be easily broken.

    We are not energy independent. The oil we produce is a light oil that has a lot of waste. Our refineries are set up for heavy crude with little waste. Once again Mr Prez you are wrong.

    Don't be naive. EVERY Administration "gives" either Money or Weapons to Leaders around the World. We assist in interests parallel with that of the U.S. Those "interests" can change overnight!

    wait, that was actually money that was seized from them. They would only receive the money back if they agreed to random inspections, no refinement to a weapons grade uranium, and confirmation for 15 years. they agreed and that was that.

    iran has been getting away from the U.S. dollar for years. oil is normally traded in the dollar but Iran prefers the euro. so we will probably sanction the *******out of them wreaking their economy to the point they lash out giving the U.S. a reason to go to war
