In his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, President Obama said that Iran would not be allowed to "game the system."

"But it is also incumbent upon all of us to insist that nations like Iran and North Korea do not game the system. Those who claim to respect international law cannot avert their eyes when those laws are flouted. Those who care for their own security cannot ignore the danger of an arms race in the Middle East or East Asia. Those who seek peace cannot stand idly by as nations arm themselves for nuclear war."

Is ANYONE giving Iran 114 billion in direct aid to do their bidding? Does Iran have a control center in Manzariyeh (..نظريه) from which drones are directed to assassinate American men, women & children? Israelis? Andorrans? In the case of the Andorrans, probably not because they have the second highest life expectancy of all people on earth (82). The U.S. is currently no. 41. Do you suppose Manzariyeh has whore houses & casinos?
