Iran so far continues to outsmart us at every turn...
Take just last week:
We released 7 Iranians for 5 Americans hostages plus a $1.7 billion settlement to Iran, even though our victims of terrorism haven't received their settlement money from Iran.
Well after Iran released the 5 Americans, the Shitte militias in Iraq "whose funding and direction come from Iran" immediately took 3 new Americans hostage.
How about with the nuke deal with Iran?
We got short-term commitments from the Iranians to restrain their nuke program in return for $100+ billion and a removal of sanctions.
Well after Iran agreed to this, they immediately tested 2 ballistic missiles capable of carrying nukes in violation of UN resolutions, and then Iran threatens to pull out of the deal if we impose any new sanctions.
Then again, what about our naval vessels seized?
Iran took 2 US naval vessels and 10 American servicemen/women and after releasing them, we profusely thank Iran.
Well after we thank them, Iran broadcasts humiliating images of the Americans on their knees captured, and it is reported that Iran kept SIM cards from the sailors handheld satellite phones presumably to hack these communications in the future.
They win some and win some more--AND--we lose some and lose some more.
Ready for the next humiliating round? ;-)
