The Making and Unmaking of The Iran Nuclear Deal

The Iran Nuclear Deal was a decades-in-the-making achievement — until Trump crushed it.

Reverse Course in Iran Nuclear Deal

According to a joint statement in Switzerland, the P5+1 countries and Iran agreed on a framework for a deal. According to this framework, Iran would redesign, convert, and reduce its nuclear facilities and accept the Additional Protocol (with provisional application) in order to lift all nuclear-related economic sanctions, freeing up tens of billions of dollars in oil revenue and frozen assets. In addition to the joint statement, the United States and Iran issued fact sheets of their own.

In 1979 Iran overthrows its U.S.-backed monarch and becomes an Islamic Republic. President Trump has spent his first two years in office dismantling former president Barack Obama's work in Iran relations. Back in 2002, the U.S. accuses Iran of secretly building nuclear weapons while it pursues nuclear energy. After negotiations went back-and-forth for years with the U.N. in 2004, Iran agrees to stop enriching uranium. In 2007 Presidential candidate Obama says he’d be open to pursuing diplomacy with Iran's leaders. 2008 - The U.N imposes heavy sanctions on Iran — hoping to prevent uranium production. President Obama announces in 2009 that the G8 has agreed to pursue diplomatic solutions to Iran’s growing nuclear presence.

In 2011 the International Atomic Energy Agency releases a report that says Iran is pursuing a nuclear explosive device. Then in 2013 - The United States begins secretly negotiating with Iran and deal is reached in 2015. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action imposes severe limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifted sanctions. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls the agreement an “historic mistake.” Donald Trump begins slamming the Iran deal on the campaign trail. In 2018 - In a bizarre presentation aired on CNN, Netanyahu claims to have proof that Iran has been hiding nuclear weapons. Trump withdraws from the Iran nuclear deal. Obama calls the withdrawal a "serious mistake."

    Afghanistan attacks, invade iraq looking for fictional "wmd". No one attacks, invade iran for fictional "wmd". North Korea blatantly lied about their weapons testing.

    Wait Israel and the U.S. both have nuclear weapons. South Korea have nuclear weapons... why is Iran such a big threat, and not the others mentioned??? Doesn’t seem like fair dealing to me... 🤷🏾‍♀️

    It was Iran that first attacked the tankers in the Gulf. It had the temerity to down the drone. It has pooh-pooed American cyber attack. Now Rouhani calls US sanctions outrageous. It's all because of the fact someone in the US is instigating Iran to create problems for Trump in order to sabotage his election prospects. There's a powerful Iranian lobby in Washington. Obama in the final days of his presidency conspired with Iranian Jarrett to airlift a plane load of Euros and gold to terror state Iran. Obama sponsored Iran nuclear deal to make Iran a nuclear power in the Middle East to counter Israel. Kerry's son-in-law is an Iranian. Obama appointed to sensitive posts Muslim Brotherhood men. Muslim Brotherhood network spread across the US is behind pro-Iranian news spewed by some paid media channels. Iranian fifthcolumn is surreptitiously functioning in Washington. American intelligence agencies should monitor their activities, including some high profile Americans.

    Yea and now we are on the verge of war with Iran. The republicans want to kick the old regime out so they can set up a U.S puppet regime that they can control thus control the oil in Iran. They think they are pulling the wool over our eyes. They are wrong!

    In 2000 CE, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea, and Iran were listed as not having a Rothschild owned central bank.
