Violations of an arms embargo by Iran or restrictions on its missile program would not force an automatic reinstatement or “snapback” of United Nations sanctions under a landmark nuclear deal, although other options would be available, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.

“The arms embargo is not tied to snapback,” Kerry said. “It is tied to a separate set of obligations. So they are not in material breach of the nuclear agreement for violating the arms piece of it.”

    well, i guess that explains why iran has announced its purchase of 500 warplanes (100 il-78s and 250 su-30s from russia, plus 150 j-10s from china), before the ink is even dry on the nuclear agreement or the lifting of sanctions.

    the mullahs’ peaceful intentions are obvious, as is the fact that their new air force will be financed by the monies freed up by obama and kerry. the next step will be to sell them f-35s, so american companies will also be able to cash in on the “peace dividend”.
