In the lead up to the interim deal, if one wanted to be charitable, one could have assumed that these hawks were acting as the "bad cop," using the threat of even more economic sanctions to strengthen the Obama administration’s "good cop" hand to exert maximum pressure on Iran to limit its nuclear program. However, after an interim deal has been reached, these same hardliners are likely to push Congress to ratchet up sanctions anyway in a blatant attempt to kill that deal and further negotiations. Of course, President Obama can likely successfully veto their efforts, but unfortunately their motivation for taking this barefaced course can only be attributed to rejecting peace for war with Iran.
