Of all the ill considered, uneducated, immoral and dangerous actions taken by President Trump, last Tuesday’s decision to abandon the nuclear agreement with Iran was the worst.
Negotiations for altering the nuclear agreement have been going on for months. According to my sources, Trump continued to insist that because the agreement allowed Iran to continue to produce weapons grade material and fuel after a period of 15 years the agreement was flawed. Trump wanted the period extended to a point where Iran would never be able to continue work on weapons grade material. Of course it would be preferable for Iran never to produce nuclear weapons but to reach agreements internationally requires negotiation and Iran was not going to negotiate away it’s ability to build these horrible weapons if it’s neighbors in the regional we’re not under similar restraints. Trump continue to reject it and decided on this basis that he would pull the United States out of the resolution. Let’s hope that the other signatories to the agreement keep up their end of the bargain and Iran does not decide to restart it’s nuclear weapons program .
The agreement called for international inspections of Iran’s nuclear program and to this point Iran has followed the agreement. If the agreement falls through and Iran begins to make nuclear weapons what are you gonna do then Mr Trump? The day Trump signed the withdrawal documents, I tweeted (without the shortened Tweet language necessary to stay within Twitter restrictions), “Mr Trump you dropped the Iranian nuclear deal because you believed that the 15 years the agreement requires Iran to cease production of weapons grade material and fuel needed, to be extended. In 15 years you will most likely be dead but your children and grandchildren will face a far more dangerous nuclear world because of what you did today!”
President Obama was applauded around the world of the Iranian deal. It was signed by Britain, France, Germany, the entire EU, Russia and China. You have once again embarrassed our allies and given our adversaries Russia and China, a huge public relations boost. It appears you will go to any lengths to destroy President Obama’s agreements. From pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, letting a crook like Pruitt destroy the EPA’s vital accomplishments under Obama ,pulling out of the pacific rim trade negotiations, starting a trade war with China and our allies, etc, etc.
The country will survive until you are gone Mr Trump. But the sooner the better!
