The Iranian pay off on this agreement is frontloaded. They get all the escrowed money and all the things they couldn’t buy in exchange for a promise not to pursue nuclear weapons. In six months, they’ll have everything they want in the boundaries of their country and no reason whatsoever not to resume the program. This isn’t an agreement that’s even intended to hold up, it’s just an economic transfer to the Iranians for the benefit of the Ayatollahs who run the country. This stabilizes them. Obama is on a rescue mission.
