Does letter writer Joseph Szot actually believe that Russia and China, Iran's potentially two largest trading partners, won't overlook any violation of its commitments — including halting nuclear weapons development — in order to continue unfettered trade with that country ("Iran likely to keep nuclear deal," July 18)?
For decades, China financially supported North Korea's efforts to become a nuclear power, which had no economic benefit for China.
Russia, with its need for hard currency, will sell unlimited amounts of arms to Iran without any regard for its nuclear program.
And with nearly $150 billion now available to Iran, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has stated that funds will be allocated to Iranian-supported terrorist groups like Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in the Palestinian territories, the Houthi rebels in Yemen and Boko Haram in Nigeria as well as Bashar Assad's regime in Syria.
The agreement President Barack Obama struck with Iran is fatally flawed and history will bear that out.
