Biden Allowed Iran’s Missile Sanctions to Expire before Attack on Israel

Democrat President Joe Biden allowed United Nations sanctions on Iranian missile procurement to expire five months before Iran launched an unprecedented attack on Israel over the weekend.

The Islamic Republic of Iran fired more than 300 missiles at Israel during the attack.

The assault was in retaliation for a strike on its embassy in Syria last week that killed seven IRGC terrorists.

Iran claims Israel was behind the attack but the Jewish state has not claimed responsibility.

The missile sanctions against Iran expired on October 18, 2023.

The period gave Iran five months to expand its drone and missile development before the attack.

The expiration date came from the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal.

the deal was entered into by Biden’s Democrat predecessor Barack Obama.

Biden re-entered the U.S. into the controversial deal after President Donald Trump withdrew from it during his presidency.

The expiration was supposed to be contingent on Iran following the terms of the deal, but it has not even pretended to do so.

As recently as November, Iran threw International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors out and didn’t let them inspect its enrichment of uranium.

There have been repeated reports from the IAEA that Iran has been enriching uranium in quantities to make a nuclear bomb rather than for energy production, as it has claimed.

But Biden seemed content to let Iran get away with doing so and did not reinstitute any meaningful sanctions or even call for it as part of the UN.

Limited sanctions against certain groups were instituted but did not pertain to missiles or drone strikes.

In addition, Iran has been linked to the October 7 attacks by Hamas on Israel.

Iran gave material funding and weapons to Hamas that allowed it to attack Israel.

The Iranian regime is also funding other terrorist groups in the region such as Hezbollah and the Houthis.

Where did Iran’s money come from?

Not directly from the U.S., as some have claimed, but indirectly through oil sales of about 700,000 barrels a day.

The Biden administration has allowed these sales since 2022, when Saudi Arabia said it would not increase production.

That amounts to billions of dollars a year going into Iran’s pockets, helping it fund Hamas and get more missiles.

It seems as though the Biden admin has been very much a part of the problem when it comes to Iran.

The Biden admin may have even enabled Iran to fund Hamas in opposition to Israel, whom we say we support.

It’s a very tangled web, and it’s not too far off to say that the U.S. is helping to facilitate both sides of this war effort, which is the last thing we should be doing.
