There are certain historically bad decisions made throughout history. Neville Chamberlain declaring peace in our time after meeting with Hitler in Munich is one. Granting Iran sanctions relief without firm concessions to dismantle its nuclear program is another. What the West forgets and why this is such a bad deal is that we are conditioning an agreement on the "hope" of compliance from a nation who's leaders answer to the word of God as interpreted by the supreme leader. At best that seems whimsical. At worst it’s very naive. Any agreement needs to call for concrete demonstrations of compliance; otherwise you can never ensure real change. Iran has never demonstrated it can follow through on agreements and unless it does so now, agreeing to lift sanctions on a promise is absurd.
Iran's current President, Hassan Rouhani, has stated and I quote, "The Beautiful Cry of Death to America Unites our Nation." During his campaign earlier this year, he has repeatedly said and again I quote, "Saying Death to America is easy, we need to express Death to America with action. The current speaker of the Iranian Parliament, Ali Larijani, has also voiced a hatred for the United States. He stated these exact words, "The time has come for the disappearance of the West from the Universe." Several other leaders in the Iranian government has expressed similar statements.
