President Donald Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron Tuesday morning that he plans to announce the withdrawal of the United States from the Iran nuclear deal, according to a person briefed on the conversation. Trump has often regarded the deal initiated during the Obama administration as a “bad” one.
President Trump’s decision unravels the signature foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama. Left-leaning media outlets also claim it is isolating the United States among its allies and leaving it at even greater odds with its adversaries in dealing with the Iranians.
Iran has already issued warnings of “severe consequences” should the US decide to pull the plug on the 2015 nuclear agreement.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told a cheering crowd of thousands Tuesday that if any country decides to betray the 2015 nuclear deal, there will be “severe consequences.” Although Rouhani didn’t specifically name the United States, he did say that Tehran is “prepared for all possible situations.”
The New York Timesreported that Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel will work to convince Donald Trump to stay in the agreement at a meeting later this week. And in the meantime, French president Emmanuel Macron is diligently working on swaying Trump’s mind on the issue as well. Both European leaders want the US to stick to the 2015 nuclear deal put in place by Barack Obama. –SHTFPlan
Trump has not stayed quiet as to how he personally feels about the deal made by his predecessor.
The United States is preparing to reinstate all sanctions it had waived as part of the nuclear accord — and impose additional economic penalties as well, the person said, according to the New York Times. A second person familiar with negotiations to keep the 2015 accord in place said the talks collapsed over Trump’s insistence that sharp limits be kept on Iran’s nuclear fuel production after 2030. The deal currently lifts those limits. Trump is allegedly also planning to formally announce his decision at 2 p.m. on Tuesday at the White House.
The decision will, however, fulfill one of Trump’s oft-repeated campaign promises, and came despite intense personal lobbying by European leaders and frantic attempts to craft fixes to the deal that would satisfy him. Trump’s aides persuaded him twice to stay in the agreement, but the president has made it crystal clear that his patience with the deal had worn thin. Armed with a new, more war hungry set of advisers — led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the national security adviser, John R. Bolton — Trump faced much less internal resistance this time.
It appears that even some in the mainstream media are now siding with Trump with regards to the withdraw from the weapons accord. Even after inception of the agreement in 2015, the regime has been confronted with credible information that it is operating more advanced centrifuges than permitted, exceeding limits on production of heavy water and, according to Fox News, covertly procuring nuclear and missile technology outside of approved channels: These are all material breaches of the deal.
Trump needs to realize that he too is playing with fire. Whereas I agree the Iran deal was a traitorous act by Obama, what is now to come is not going to be pretty. A man’s gotta have some real skin – flesh and blood – in the game to know the hazards. Trump thinks he’s somehow immune. We shall see. When this plays out, I can only hope all here make it to the other side. As for those elites/powers-that-be – I could care less.
The Gods of War are smiling. Get some.
The scariest thing I can think of is a moslem
with a nuke.
You are dealing with idiots that want to die.
I’d be happy to accommodate them. All 1.8 billion
Agreed Relik. I would not worry about Iran directly effecting the USA too much. Arab and Persians are too much talk and no action. A few bunker busters will go a long way in destroying Iran’s nuclear intentions and I understand Israel has some 20 or so of them.
Remember how well one took out ISIS in Afghanistan. Makes one wonder why our muslim in chief never used them. Could be because Kerry’s son in law is a muslim??
China, russia, israel and pakis all have nuke and all like to kill. Iran needs nukes because not only other muzzies hate them the rest of the zioworld does too.
Rellik, agreed. It’s muzzies with evil intentions toward others. All 1.8 billion of them? Damn, I still need more ammo, LOL.
I can clear out my part
of the Earth.
We had to back out. It’s what Israel wanted. Now we can fight their war for them. Jeuvanka and the rest of the jeus in our government will make sure of it.
Not to worry Jaes.
Well it’s true, the Zionist wag the Donald like a lap dog. Iran complied with the agreement, they say they will continue to do so still. But remember, they don’t have a Rothschild central bank, nor did Sadam, Omar or NK Rocket man, can’t have that. Anyhow, Iran will be a tough nut to crack, and most likely lead to WW3 if we attack them according to Bibi’s wishes.
Buckle Up for a bumpy ride…
So let me sum this up in my head/ out loud?? The Navy announced the reactivation of the 2nd Fleet over the weekend, the US Army 1st Calvary Div is deploying to Europe, and I see C-17s coming and going all day and night. This puts a total of about 15,000 troops from Fort Hood alone in Europe.Yep I hear it now the war drum is beating very loud.
I was listening to an old lecture by a Canadian Officer.
He said that the “psychos” planned to hang out safely in Florida in 1958 while Ww3 went into motion for three years. They had it all together. They had cattle and vegetable crops. But the weather acted up. Crops died and the steers starved to death. So, bad weather prevented Ww3 in 1958.
But guess who has been importing thousands of steers, and ready to sit back while others fight the “good” fight. Ww3 has been in progress. Iran is just the next domino to throw down. But this time, if we’re foolish enough to get dragged into another war, America will suffer many more casualties.
The only thing this nuclear deal was lift the sanctions on Iran, everything else remained the same, Iran was still developing it’s nuclear weapons and test fired them in North Korea.
With the sanctions it would of slowed Iran down instead of boosting their economy so much so that they can even fight and send resources to Syria.
Bad deal, now they have the nukes and the deliver systems to send them!
Let’s get Obumma back so that the US can send Iran aid so that they can develop more powerful bombs and improve the IBMs to deliver them to the US.
