The Iran Nuclear Agreement

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:30 am

As far as Iran is concerned, it is a great civilization, but it also has an authoritarian theocracy at its head, which is anti-American, anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic, supports terrorism, and there are a whole series of really deep differences that we have with them. The argument was, “We have a right to a peaceful nuclear program.” You know, I have a lot of differences with Ronald Reagan, but where I completely admire him, he realized that [we] were able to review a negotiated deal with the evil empire [of the Soviet Union] that was hellishly aimed at our destruction and was a far greater existential threat to us than Iran ever will be. I had a lot of disagreements with Richard Nixon, but he understood that there was the prospect, the possibility that China had taken a different path. They are testing these things, and as long as we retain our security capability – as long as we do not give up our ability to react militarily, where necessary to protect our friends and allies – this is a risk we must take. This is a practical, reasonable position. This is not naïve; It is an awareness that if we really manage to resolve some of these differences without resorting to violence, it will be much better for us and for the people of this region. [188] The open letter signed by more than a hundred former U.S. ambassadors and senior State Department officials in favor of the agreement begins with the words: “The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran is a pioneering agreement to deter nuclear proliferation. [226] [227] Michael Mandelbaum, Christ A. Herter Professor at Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies, wrote that nuclear non-proliferation in the Middle East ultimately depended “not on the details of the Vienna Agreement, but on the well-known deterrence policy of the Cold War.” Mandelbaum added that if Obama left office without Iran bombing, “the responsibility for conducting an effective deterrence policy will rest with his successor.” [386] Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, said, “Nothing that is currently on the table will discourage Iran. The sanctions are paper protests against an oil-rich nation. Diplomacy has already failed because Russia and China are playing both sides. [387] October 15, 2015: The IAEA announces that the activities included in the roadmap of July 14, 27, 2007, the Commission has examined the possible past military dimensions of Iran`s nuclear program.

The IAEA is working to finalize its report by December 15. November 25, 2019: Iran and the IAEA agree to cooperate on four nuclear projects, including nuclear safety and waste management. . . .
