the new treaty with Iran makes me think of the word meretricious

A first in diplomacy with Iran seems to be welcomed and heartily applauded by the President of the United States and the many foreign ministers who had set their signatures to this first accord to, as the President said, keep the world safe, yet is this not a meretricious agreement, as words can phrase something to please, and yet lack the substance necessary but allow Iran to claim what were frozen funds perhaps to continue what they are doing, and Europe will lift their sanctions as they had no other alternative with no funds to advance to keep the world safe.

This meretricious treaty is perhaps superficially significant, for the meaning of this word is applied to the falsely attractive, and to what seems to be yet isn't.

Time will tell, as will history, but then the beginning of what turned out to be the German advance on a clueless world that had believed in diplomacy as a solution to a country's ambition to dominate the world had come out of yet one more meretricious treaty aimed to keep the world safe.
