Iran needs nukes as Israel has them and frequently bombs its neighbors. The deal should be Israel denuke. Iran export oil.

Israel is not committed to any of the restrictions stemming from the agreement and will utilize all available tools to prevent the Iranian nuclear program from advancing.

Israel should get an Iranian-Israeli Farsi speaking beautiful Mossad agent who is also a professional hacker to infiltrate Tehran by switching her identity with that of an electric company employee on the flight from Amman, Jordan to New Delhi with a stopover in Tehran. Her mission should be to hack and disable Iran’s national air defence systems so that the Israeli air force can bomb the Iranian nuclear reactor.

Oh wait, that’s the plot of the series Tehran season 1.

To protect itself from its radical neighbors. Iran wants nukes to destroy Israel and to threaten the US.

The deal should be Israel denuke.

If the Israelis did that then the Jewish nation would cease to exist.

Iran was contained until Donald came along.

Just sick of the warmongering, threats and lies of Israel. Just pure arrogance and hubris for a country that violates international law every day, occupies land it should not, is nuclear armed and dictates to everybody else.

No, they absolutely would not have.

It was not an Obama deal. It was a UN deal and America was one of the signatures along with the European countries and the EU.

Signed in 2015 by Iran and several world powers, including the United States, the JCPOA placed significant restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

President Trump withdrew the United States from the deal in 2018, claiming it failed to curtail Iran’s missile program and regional influence. Iran began ignoring limitations on its nuclear program a year later.

Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Crazy as it sounds, I would love to visit Iran.

I have known many guys from Iran and they were some of the best people I ever met or worked with, while living in Japan (in the 90’s).

Too the government is run by who they are.

What’s so crazy about that? I have already visited Iran as a tourist and it’s not as bad as the Western media tries to portray. I am keen on history and my country and Iran have historical ties going back more than a millennium.

Maybe if you are an American or British you might need to be a bit careful because of political reasons, but the people are warm and friendly.

The only problem with my Iran visit is that I may face problems in getting a US visa if the US embassy sees an Iranian tourist visa stamp on my passport. But that’s okay since I have no plans of visiting the US in the near future.

US passports are not valid for travel to Iran or North Korea, unless things have changed.

As I said, the Iranian people I met were some of the best humans I ever encountered…it’s the governments that are the problem

Nope US passports are valid for travel to Iran. I have a cousin who is an American citizen who has traveled to Iran. However his visa approval took a bit of time. Moreover there is a State Department advisory against travel to Iran for Americans.

He is not white though so the local folks did not really come to know that he was an American.
