As another deadline approaches in U.S.-Iran nuclear negotiations the White House needs to cement President Obama‘s “legacy,” Iran is increasing its demands again.
And making fools of Washington in the process.
According to NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, the Islamic regime is demanding an end to an embargo against its conventional military weaponry that was imposed to deter Iran from pursuing its nuclear ambitions.
“Iran ups the ante on non nuclear issue: lifting conventional weapons ban as talks near another deadline,” Mitchell wrote on Twitter.
With the Obama administration already willing to sacrifice commercial sanctions against Iran to get a deal, military angle only makes sense from Tehran’s point of view.
The Twitterverse doesn’t blame Iran for raising the stakes, particularly, as one person wrote, “There’s a degenerate gambler on the other side of the table drawing to an inside straight.”

And if the ante is upped, does that mean we gave in to the rest of the ayatollah’s demands already? https://t.co/ekNCxOdf4O

@mitchellreports … Iran wants MORE weapons??? Shocking. We were told they were so peace-loving.
