i think a nuclear war will start soon cuz of that trump and this other guy ... what a waste of time

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Iran will need to make nuclear bombs to protect itself from the Americans.

5 ( +9 / -4 )

Trump strikes again.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

What a waste. Obama had reached a reasonable agreement, Trump tore it up, and now the coals are back in the fire. Perhaps Trump simply wants a war.

14 ( +17 / -3 )

Fair enough. They have not broken the deal made.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Congratulations is due to Mr. Donald J. Trump on his complete failure to secure peace in the Middle East. Instead, through his personal arrogance, stupidity, and reneging on the Iran nuclear deal in violation of international law, he has destabilized the region so it is once again on the brink of war. As the leader of a powerful country, he is utterly useless.

Why doesn’t Pakistan give Iran the same number of nukes as Israel has. Then there will be peace.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

Israel now estimated 400.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Perhaps Trump simply wants a war.

No, Trump just wants the money that his rich Zionist backers give him.

Israel now estimated 400.

The exact number of Israeli atomic warheads is unknown since they refuse to allow any UN inspections.

That should disqualify Israel from receiving any US aid (according to US law). Funny how they continue to get away with it.

Can you blame them. America has been bullying and humiliating them for decades. The Pentagon is an untamed wild animal that needs to be put on a leash. American neocons need to be put on trial and send to Guantanamo for crimes against humanity.

Can you blame them. America has been bullying and humiliating them for decades.

True, but this is regime which bullies and humiliates its own people as well as sponsoring real nutters and scumbags in the ME.

The idea that a narcissistic ignoramus like Trump is anywhere near decision making here is terrifying.

As much as I despise the human rights situation and certain lack of freedoms in Iran, I can totally understand this move. The PNAC crowd are seeking a conflict and it seems this is the excuse they have been looking for.

Shame on Bolton and his supporters.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Word to John Bolton:

Blessed are the peacemakers.

3 ( +6 / -3 )

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of the deal last year, and subsequently reimposed tough sanctions on Iran, including on its lifeblood oil exports with the stated intent of reducing them to zero and starving Iran's economy.

Article does not provide possible reasons Tump withdrew from the Deal though understandably not a easy task to explain.

1) Undo and discredit previous administration’s efforts despite advice against

2) Pro-Israeli factors in approach to peace in the region.

3) Iran hawks named Pompeo and Bolton.

Trump once again undoes a plan by others that was working. Congrats. I suspect he wanted this reaction from Iran all along.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Trump once again undoes a plan by others that was working.

Lessee... is Iran closer or farther away than ever to having a nuclear bomb? Closer? So much for the plan that "was working."

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

The plan was working. All could tries agreed.

Iran needs to develop an nuclear deterrent program and form an alliance with China, Russia, North Korea and Pakistan. Any nation that does not have a nuclear deterrent is at the mercy of Washington and we know Washington has no mercy. Any nation without a nuclear program is liable to US invasion, particularly if they refuse to be dominated politically, economically and militarily by Washington.    

warhead Washington deeds to consider the possibility of one, just one, nuclear  reaching NY or Washington - remember Hiroshima? Sure the US may be able to remove the other nation from the Earth but just one, just one, hitting NY or Washington. Are US citizens prepared for this?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

If the plan was working, how come Iran is closer than ever to having a nuclear bomb?

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Since there's no more deal, Iran can go ahead

If there's still a deal, Iran cannot go ahead

0 ( +2 / -2 )

Sources at the French presidency said on Tuesday that international sanctions could be reimposed on Iran if it reneges on commitments under its nuclear deal.

So far Iran has not reneged on their part of the deal.

If the ones who still support the deal FAIL to do what they agreed to, then Iran should be able to ignore the deal as everyone else (USA first) failed to uphold the deal first.

is Iran closer or farther away than ever to having a nuclear bomb? Closer?

No, they aren't. What alternative news are you watching?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Fair enough. They have not broken the deal made.

Do you have proof?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

I wonder if military families will continue to support this nutter of a president when their sons and daughters blood gets spilled all over the ME because of this.

Serrano: If the plan was working, how come Iran is closer than ever to having a nuclear bomb?

Sorry, but I have no idea what you are talking about. The nuclear deal was a success. All parties agreed Iran was in compliance. Iran stayed in compliance even after Trump pulled out.

FYI, that was a good thing.

Iran is making a gesture that they might pull out, which I suspect was Trump’s goal from the beginning.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

If the plan was working, how come Iran is closer than ever to having a nuclear bomb?

All countries monitoring Iran for compliance, including the US, have repeated reported that Iran is fully compliant with its required obligations under the treaty.

Please provide proof of your statement that Iran is now closer to having a nuke than before the agreement was signed.
