Iran: Trump Decision Could Bring 'Crushing' Response

Iran deal negotiators to brief House Democrats

USA policy toward both Iran and North Korea is closely related, because we must prevent Iran from joining the nuclear club and becoming another, even more unsafe version of North Korea. It's also about letting him walk away from the North Korean crisis without looking weak and foolish.

Mr Trump's latest global row is a further distraction from the ongoing tensions with North Korea what have sparked fears of World War 3. A group of people believe that Iran must respond in a strong way and resume its nuclear program as quickly as possible.

Does Trump think that Tehran - which has closely watched the destruction of these states and, in case of Syria, made hectic efforts to protect it from the IS - will sit idle after the USA has scrapped the nuclear deal?

But Trump will not find it as easy to get rid of the Iran Deal as Obamacare. The Republican maverick is gambling on the mere threat that Congress would vote to scrap it entirely, which, in turn, will leverage Tehran into accepting new demands. He hasn't liked how it didn't address Iran's support for terrorism, it's ballistic missile development, it's regional expansion, and its violations of human rights. Even if Trump were to withdraw, it would not necessarily spell the end of the deal.

"It seems the Trump administration only understands swear words, and needs some shocks to understand the new meaning of power in the world", Jazayeri said.

Also on Monday, the United Nations atomic agency chief reaffirmed Iran's commitment to the nuclear deal. That's it. And it worked very well until Trump took office in January. The Trump administration has frequently criticized Iran's conduct in the Middle East. To most folk, it just doesn't make sense.

President Donald Trump is expected to announce soon that he will decertify the landmark worldwide deal to curb Iran's nuclear program, a senior administration official said on Thursday, Reuters reported earlier.

Robert E. Hunter, former US Ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation agrees. "It will alienate the United States from our key allies, undercut the credibility of American leadership and imperil our national security".

"Our big concern is with regard to North Korea, that it is very unlikely the North Korean dictatorship is ready to agree to an worldwide agreement to renounce the building of nuclear weapons if the only agreement in the world that has allowed such a renunciation is at the same time called into question".

The US leader had previously called the deal "an embarrassment" and "the worst deal ever negotiated". He called it "simply too precious to be allowed to be undermined or weakened".

The refusal to certify kicks the issue to Congress, opening a 60-day period for debate.

In a response to Fox News about the findings, German officials said they were nonetheless satisfied that Iran is complying with the JCPOA. But on Iran, it's the adults who are, in Rex Tillerson's unfortunate phrase, playing the "morons". Does this explain some worrying gaps in his logic about making such seismic errors or judgment in the region?

Another option being considered by the United States administration is to designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group in U.S. law. Gen Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, has warned against pulling out of the multilateral deal, which was signed by some of Washington's closest allies.
