The Case Against the Iranian Nuclear Deal Is One Big Lie | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The Case Against the Iranian Nuclear Deal Is One Big Lie

The latest round in their campaign was U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s disingenuous and falsehood-filled speech at the American Enterprise Institute last week. The speech is useful in one sense: it provides a handy summary of just about every creative and mendacious argument that die-hard opponents of the JCPOA have been cooking up since the agreement was signed. Unfortunately, it is neither an accurate guide to the agreement, to its current status, nor more importantly, to U.S. interests.

Among other things, Haley claimed — falsely — that the deal “gave Iran what it wanted up-front, in exchange for temporary promises to deliver what we want.” The truth is about 180 degrees from this claim: Iran gave up enriched uranium, destroyed 13,000 centrifuges, dismantled the Arak reactor, let the U.N. install monitoring devices, implemented the NPT Additional Protocol, and a host of other measures — all before the United States or anyone else began lifting sanctions.

When facts and logic fail them, opponents of the JCPOA resurrect the myth of a “better deal.” Having failed to stop Obama’s original negotiation, they now claim decertifying the deal is the first step to persuading Iran and the other members of JCPOA to agree to major revisions or new restrictions. As I’ve written before, this is a vain, even laughable, hope.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply concerned that the Unhinged Surveilled States of America, Under President Trump's watch, are stumbling into a war against Iran after successfully pushing it out of the P5+1 Treaty.

This ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid move on the part of the USSA, may result not only in a war against Iran, in the name of "regime change", but also a war against Russia, which has consistently pledged to come to Iran's rescue, should it be attacked militarily.

And the greatest cheerleaders for such a war are none other than President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman.

So President Trump, let me please strongly caution you about the horrific, and dark, consequences for such initiating such a war, where the US will absolutely NOT be on the right side of history: both Netanyahu and Prince Salman are hounding you for regime change in Tehran, but only at the costs of American blood, and American money, and the costs will outweigh the benefits by too wide a margin to even be conceived as a rational plan.

Time to think this one through carefully, appreciate what the US DOES have as a signatory to the P5+1, and come up with a Plan B.
