This is poor reasoning, at best. How giving Ian more money is going to suppress their nuclear development is beyond me. The international community has no enforcement mechanism, and realistically cannot create one. Iran may be more compliant with the west if the people weren't suffering under crippling economic sanctions. This country has plenty of internal problems, and the taxpayers of the U.S. Are already on the hook for more dept than can possibly be repaid. The real boogymen are the ones perpetuating this myth of an existential threat from outside, while using fear to convince people to surrender their freedom; thus accomplishing the stated goals of the supposed terrorists.
