The new, diplomatic solution will, for the first time, have nuclear inspectors on the ground in Iran.
“We should beware of the USA use of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) aiming to interfere in Iran’s politics, economy and, worst of all, our culture”, Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami said as he led the prayers for Eid al-Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice.
Finally, the sanctions that were put in place to bring Iran to the table have worked.
“It is anticipated that the price of oil in the USA may drop significantly due to removal of sanctions against Iranian oil“, Sullivan said.
In the original draft, the US Congress was entitled “to reauthorize all [Iran-related] statutory provisions that would otherwise expire… including the Iran Sanctions Act”. Prior to the escalation of sanctions against Iran, Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Italy were among Iran’s largest trade partners.
“People have had very high expectations for change for many years in Iran”, he says.
As Northwestern students, we will live our adult lives in the world shaped by the Iranian nuclear deal, or whatever agreement – or lack thereof – replaces it. Therefore, it is critical for us students to make our voices heard in discussions on foreign policy. We are committed to countering Iran’s ongoing illicit conduct and will aggressively enforce sanctions that target Iran’s support for terrorist groups, its abuses of human rights or its destabilizing activities in the region. It legitimizes Iran as a threshold nuclear state with an industrial enrichment capability, unshackles the regime in its long-held pursuit of conventional military power, and gives billions of dollars to the number-one state sponsor of terrorism in the world. President Obama sold the deal as an alternative to war.
The president’s nuclear deal requires us to trust Iran, despite its proven track record of deceit and belligerence. Now, the Republicans will not get to vote on the deal, and the president will be able to implement it without the support of a single Republican.
This also has been proven true by an Iranian entertainment application for portable devices; giving the player the ability to “nuke” areas that are represented by American and Israeli flags, Jewish stars and Christian crosses.
MONTAGNE: Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel says Iran might secretly try to continue nuclear development now or just do it later after parts of the deal expire. We must be vigilant and watchful regarding the goals and the intentions of the new administration in Iran as it addresses its newfound domestic and worldwide responsibilities.
Donald Trump, who has said that he would not tear up the deal immediately but would work to get a better agreement, also appeared on Colbert’s show Tuesday night, leaving Moniz with an autographed copy of his 1987 bestseller, “The Art of the Deal”. Yet Tehran isn’t going to see any of the billions from sanctions relief for months. Moreover, the radical wing of Iran’s government, known as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, is responsible for the persecution, detention and execution of political dissenters, members of the media, homosexuals and minority ethnic groups.
With polls showing that public support for the Iran agreement is as low as 21 percent, Senate Republicans can quote Harry Reid’s arguments for invoking the “nuclear option” for confirming judges last session: surely having the Senate cast a vote on this treaty is way more important than confirming judges? The policies of President Carter, resting on such delusions, turned what was once an America ally into the nuclear menace it is on the verge of becoming.
