White House Sources Say Trump is Likely to Withdraw from Nuclear Deal

Trump committed to 'regime change' in Iran his lawyer Giuliani says

While European nations and the American left favored the Iran nuclear deal, President Trump and Republicans have criticized the agreement.

The White House official said Trump was "most of the way there toward pulling out of the deal but he hasn't made the decision" and that he "seems poised to do it but until a decision is made by this president it is not final".

In other words, the nuclear deal, in fact, came about partly because of the IAEA's concerns about Iran's nuclear activities, not in spite of them.

"And I believe strongly that this pressure will require sanctions if we are to avoid conflict, and that Europe in the coming days must produce a legitimate, reasonable, and serious sanctions proposal against Iran to deal with its regional and missile program as well as its nuclear issues".

Spies from Israel's Mossad agency discovered the top-secret location of a warehouse used to store Iran's nuclear weapons files, broke into the building, took half a ton of documents and managed to smuggle them back to Israel that same night, The New York Times reported late Monday.

United Nations: UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has urged Donald Trump not to walk away from an worldwide deal created to prevent Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. Although it has been found that the maximum number of dead people were Iranians. Before signing the agreement, prominent Iranian officials - including President Rouhani - claimed that Tehran had never pursued a nuclear program.

Israel maintains a formal policy of nonintervention in Syria's internal affairs, however, this applies to all cases excluding incidents deemed linked to Iran's entrenchment in Syria or those acting against Israel and its territory. "Cheaters are a risk you take into account in any negotiation". "Although the Rouhani government wishes to sustain the deal and build on it for greater worldwide integration and economic recovery, it is constrained by pressure from its political opponents". The cache shows Iran can not be trusted. "Don't do it", says Trump's own Secretary of Defense, Jim Mattis, and Trump's chief of staff, General John Kelly.

Where a world leader stands on Syria defines whether he or she is pro-Israel in a much more material, immediate and important way than where one stands on embassies in Jerusalem. So even if Iran fully complies with the deal, it can - and likely will - still achieve a nuclear weapon.

But that looks unlikely now.

Netanyahu's revelation that Iran had plans initially to build 5 ten kiloton nuclear weapons was not previously known.

It is obvious that the right way to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons is vital, and requires immediate action.

It's a similar scenario that confronted the Obama administration before it embarked on the turgid rounds of talks that led to the current deal.

"While the reformist president Mohammad Khatami was in office, George W. Bush undermined him and shattered Iranians" hopes of rapprochement by labeling the country part of the "axis of evil'", wrote Saeed Kamali Dehgan in the Guardian.
