On Tuesday afternoon, President Trump announced his decision to follow through with another campaign promise. He officially announced that the United States will be withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear Accord. An accord that was struck in 2015 by the Obama Administration, and other world powers. It lifted international sanctions against the country, and gave Iran billions of American tax dollars. In return, Iran agreed to restrict its nuclear program, in order to make it impossible for them to produce a bomb. However, it has become apparent over time that the Iranians got rid of their sanctions, while taking American taxpayer to the cleaners. Meanwhile, they continued to develop nuclear weapons, along with the ballistic missiles needed to deliver the payload to other nations.
However, although it was the right move for America, it will still be met with a huge backlash, as it creates huge ripples in the Globalist Elites war to create a One-World governmental system, and goes against the wishes of some of America’s Progressive-Socialist European Allies.
Progressive Daryl G. Kimball, Executive Director of the Independent Arms Control Association said…
“President Trump’s decision to violate the Iran nuclear deal, which has successfully blocked Iran’s potential pathways to a nuclear bomb, is an irresponsible act of foreign policy malpractice”
However, it came as no surprise, especially after new revelations had come to light through Israeli intelligence sources that revealed that Iran was intentionally violating the accord, and lying about their actions.
President Trump’s withdrawal was also supported by Jamil Jaffer, founder of the National Security Institute at Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. Jaffer said…
“The Iran deal was never worth doing for the United States – we gave up too much leverage for too little in gains,” he said. “President Trump would be doing the right thing if he walks away from the deal and returns us to maximum leverage by reimposing sanctions now.”
Jamil Jaffer went on to say that…
“the complete failure of the deal to address the massive problem of Iran’s malign influence across the region and its support for international terrorism, combined with the deal’s short nuclear sunsets and its weak provisions on advanced uranium centrifuge research, ballistic missile development and testing, and surveillance of prior military nuclear worksites make the deal wholly inconsistent with U.S. national security interests, a fact recognized by the bipartisan majorities in Congress that voted against the deal negotiated by President Obama and his team.”
The agreement was originally struck in 2015 by the United States, other world powers and Iran, lifted most U.S. and international sanctions against the country. In return, Iran agreed to restrictions on its nuclear program making it impossible to produce a bomb, along with rigorous inspections, that is until the year 2025. However, regardless of the agreement Iran continued to test missiles, support of terrorism, and was set to rush into production of nuclear weapons when the agreement sunsets in seven years.
In recent weeks, European Union leadership visited the White House, in a last ditch attempt to change the President’s mind and keep the United States in the Iran Nuclear Deal. However, one by one, they left with the President unconvinced that the Accord was the right move. Then Last Monday, Israel released a treasure trove of materials that their intelligence agencies were able to obtain. It included 100,000 documents that included photos, blueprints, videos, and other items that detailed their nuclear plans to…
‘design, produce and test five warheads, each with ten kiloton TNT yield for integration on a missile.’
That would be five times bigger than the bomb dropped in Hiroshima, and a blatant violation of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Also, Iran has continued to test and deploy ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, despite thier signing the deal.
As a result of the wrecklessness of the deal, and the blatant refusal to follow the requirements laid out by the accord, President Trump made the critical decision to withdraw from the Accord on Tuesday afternoon, and reimpose devastating economic sanctions against Iran. President Trump said…
“This was a horrible deal that should never, ever have been made”
Iran threatened the President and said that if he chose to withdraw from the deal, Iran would not renegotiate a new deal. Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif however said…
“If Trump makes this mistake and scraps the JCPOA (Iran’s nuclear deal) as an international achievement, he will later have to accept the rights of the Iranians under a worse situation.”
However, following the United State’s withdraw, President Trump went further and re-instituted the devastating economic sanctions upon the Iranian regime. Sanctions that are designed to squeeze and force the regime back to the negotiating table for a new and enforcable agreement. An agreement that would address the radical regime’s hostile activities in Iran and across the Middle East.
“It is possible that we will face some problems for two or three months, but we will pass through this.”
In the coming months, President Trump is likely to re-institute sanctions on Iran’s central bank, which targets their oil exports. Also, Trump is likely to give businesses doing business with Iran a brief 90 day window to end business with the regime. Later, he could then impose sanctions on Iranian businesses
Other U.S. sanctions don’t require a decision until later, including those on specific Iranian businesses, sectors and individuals that will snap back into place in July unless Trump signs another waiver.
As for the future of the European Union, and their approach to President Trump, they have found that trying to appease him is futile, and that the President doesn’t only do what he says, but he follows through on his promises.
President Trump has made it clear that he wants to deter Iran’s ballistic missile program and other actions that Iran has done to destabilize the region. Also, he has demanded more stringent nuclear inspections and restrictions on nuclear enrichment and processing.
Sen. Tom Cotton, a member of the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services committees, said Tehran should think twice about starting to build a nuclear bomb. Senator Cotton stated…
“If that’s Iran’s choice, then we’ll be prepared for that choice, and we’ll take what actions are necessary, whether those are economic, political, diplomatic or military.”
Senator Cotten went on to say that…
“That deal was a very bad deal for the United States,” he said. “It gave all kinds of concession, it gave billions of dollars in sanctions relief, and it didn’t ultimately stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. It really didn’t even delay them, given their own technological development timelines.”
In the end, Trump has put the United States on track to reinstitute sanctions against an out of control and ruthless regime. Sanctions that will cripple Iran’s ability to build nuclear weapons, and the ballistic missile systems needed to deliver a nuclear payload. The President has delayed the restart of sanctions for 90 days; therefore, allowing further negotiations to take place with the radical regime. In fact, his decision came in the face of immense pressure from European and Democrat Party leadership. Now, President Trumps bold move will force globalist nations to take a new look at Iran, and their nuclear program.
