    Why is returning Irans own money a ransom?

    Besides isn't Iran a strong ally in Syria?

    Because it was given as a contingency, you didn't mention them raising sanctions that weren't supposed to be raised for 7 years.

    Unlike the cash that might actually be a ransom.

    The US is basically a state sponsor of terrorism.

    Bank sanctions lifted seven years early. How many years early do you think their nuclear requirements will be lifted?

    I hate to break it to you. But Iran is a key ally against Islamic state.

    Unless you think the US shouldn't have any involvement in the Middle
    East.

    Well Bloomberg reckoned bank sanctions would be lifted in early 2016 - http://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...s-seen-lifted-in-early-2016-by-nuclear-envoys

    Zero involvement means no sanctions.

    It also means allowing Iran to have nuclear weapons.

    You are, you did an international deal.

    But if you don't want to be involved Obama removing sanctions is a step in the right direction.

    U.S. as a whole? No. White House, CIA, and Congressional co-conspirators/enablers? Yes.

    Here is a previously unreleased artist’s rendition of Obama feeding his al-Qaeda jihadists.

    Do you want the US involved in the Middle East or not?

    Or do you just irrationally hate Obama and oppose everything he does.

    That's funny I only remember Reid commenting on Obama being all smart and all for a black person, he didn't even have a negro dialect.

    Kid, reality is going to hit you so hard once you will have to go out in the real world and try to make a living for yourself.

    Ok what has Obama and Hilary Clinton done well?

    I'll list some things David Cameron has done well as prime minister: Benefits cap, gay marriage, pupil premium for inner cities, no restrictions on guns after Cumbria.

    And for Jeremy Corbyn: built up an energised base of supporters, tried to make prime ministers questions less unnecessarily confrontational.

    For George W Bush: Response to the financial crisis, took a sensible amount of vacation time, good to stop playing golf during conflict, good coalition in Afghanistan, no child left behind, sox accountancy regulations.
