Israel Preparing for War With Iran, US Officials Worry

"So I think we should separate things".

"When the United States is out of the deal, it means that there is no deal left", he told CNN's Christiane Amanpour. It is downright peculiar that the Trump administration is actively sabotaging the nuclear deal with Iran while simultaneously engaging in high-level talks with North Korea in an effort to negotiate nuclear constraints. That has been the case with many of his attempts to sabotage diplomacy with Iran and push the United States to take military action against the country. As president, he has reluctantly certified the Iran deal twice, before refusing to do so a third time in October. This was an explicit condition for implementing the nuclear deal. Iran has to come clean. Following its last report on the matter in December 2015, the IAEA has described the issue as "closed". This is the report.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has urged Donald Trump not to walk away from an worldwide deal created to prevent Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. "This is an original Iranian presentation from these files", said Netanyahu, emphasising that "the mission statement is to design, produce and test five warheads with 10 kiloton of TNT yield for integration on missiles".

To make matters worse, the Iranian side feels that the T-4 airport attack, which killed seven Iranian officers, was a blow to Iran's prestige and status and therefore warrants a military retaliation. But the files again show this is a lie.

Not that there was much doubt who was behind it, but two days after "enemy" warplanes attacked a Syrian military base near Hama on Sunday, killing at least 11 Iranians and dozens of others, and nobody had yet "claimed responsibility" the attack, US officials told NBC that it was indeed Israeli F-15 fighter jets that struck the base, NBC News reported.

Iran Blasts 'Unholy Partnership' Between US and Saudi Arabia
Pompeo met earlier with Saudi King Salman for about 15 minutes before heading directly to Israel, Iran's arch-enemy, for talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"I don't know what the USA president will decide on the 12th May", Macron told reporters in Sydney after meeting Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on a rare visit by a French president to Australia. In fact, the terms of the deal were so lopsided in Iran's favor that Obama knew he would never be able to gain the consent of 67 senators. If this happens it will have major repercussions in the region, especially since Tel Aviv is concerned about the proliferation of anything that would limit the Israeli Air Force's freedom flight, and it may stand in the way of the distribution of these missiles, which change the existing balances of power.

A decision by Trump to end USA sanctions relief would all but sink the agreement and could trigger a backlash by Iran, which could resume its nuclear arms program or "punish" US allies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon, diplomats said.

There are three elements that would help secure Western interests: inspection of "military" sites - or any sites Iran presently forbids; removal of the "sunset" clauses; and enforcement of the United Nations restrictions on Iran's ballistic missile program.

Baeidinejad said worldwide observers' final assessment ahead of the 2015 agreement contradicted Israel's claims.

"He's not close to getting two-thirds of the Senate". The point was goading Trump into canceling the deal.

Trump hosts heroes of Southwest jet accident, praises their courage

But some, including USA allies Britain, France and Germany, said the information he had delivered was already known to nuclear weapons inspectors and had no bearing on the nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and world powers in July 2015.

Mr. Obama's deal legitimized Iran's nuclear program as peaceful, which was a crock. This entitled Iran to global assistance. Bibi may consider himself the biggest political victor of the Iran deal's collapse.

Specifically "training courses and workshops".

Meaning we were and are now required to protect Iran against the very Stuxnet virus, developed by the NSA and Israel's Unit 8200, that for years disrupted and delayed an Iranian bomb. The Russians' talk about the great consequences of targeting this system does not stand up to the reality of the situation, i.e. that Israel cannot live with a situation where its air force does not possess the freedom to operate at a time when Iran has fortified its military influence in Syria.

USA and Israeli intelligence have been monitoring cargo flights from Iran to Syria, fearing they are stocked with weapons to be used against the Jewish state. Mr. Trump must overturn it.
