"I am deeply concerned about this deal because of the Iranian track record. I think there is the possibility they will cheat on this deal and we need to know if they do. The second point is, we're dropping a golden shower of money on them, $100 to $150 billion dollars, a significant portion of that in my view will be used to facilitate wars, proxy wars and terrorism through Hezbollah. We are going to see Iran as an imperial power moving through the region whether or not they have a nuclear weapon so buckle up."

--- Admiral Stavridis expressing his concerns over giving Iran $150 billion dollars as part of the nuclear deal.

"It hurts your heart to see our sailors in those kinds of positions and its jut not appropriate. If those positions were reversed and if an Iranian military vessel for some reason was in distress and went into U.S. waters, we would pull up alongside it, we would try to find out what was wrong with it. We certainly wouldn't have them all up on deck on their knees with their hands behind their heads. We wouldn't take them into a locked up space and demand an apology for what was as far as I could see, an accident of engineering problems at sea."
