Hallelujah!!! President Trump has finally kept ANOTHER campaign promise and announced that we are pulling out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
President Trump stood firm and followed through on his promise to withdraw in spite of our many allies who have been trying to convince him to continue honoring the deal.
Iran has been threatening President Trump not to pull out of the deal saying that they will immediately begin working on developing nuclear weapons if he decides not to honor the agreement. Frankly, I don’t see any difference at all in what they threaten to do and what they are doing.
This is what the Iranian President Hassan Rohani told thousands of Iranians gathered in the city of Tabriz recently:
“I am telling those in the White House that if they do not live up to their commitments…the Iranian government will firmly react. If anyone betrays the deal, they should know that they would face severe consequences. Iran is prepared for all possible situations.”
You can hear what President Trump had to say to Iran about making threats in the video below but in plain English, he warned them if they mess with the United States, they are going to get their a** kicked!
There is plenty of evidence that I ran has already been violating the agreement in spite of the insistence by others that they are in compliance. I have never trusted Iran and they have a long history of keeping their word, NEVER! Why in God’s name we would want to give them one year much less ten years to continue secretly developing nuclear weapons is beyond me.
President Trump has made it clear that he is more than willing to renegotiate a deal that actually makes sense and will protect the free world from a nuclear Iran. The current deal does not provide for the sort of unrestricted access to inspect Iran for compliance that is needed for real certainty.
The President is not canceling the agreement immediately and the crippling sanctions that had Iran on their knees before John Kerry crawled up to them on his knees will not go back into effect immediately. There are two deadlines of sorts that he announced that will give time for Iran to renegotiate, and/or for those that started doing business with Iran after the sanctions were lifted to pull out and not get jammed up by the sanctions.
The French President Emmanuel Macron wasted no time in Tweeting his regret over the President’s decision:
France, Germany, and the UK regret the U.S. decision to leave the JCPOA. The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake.

Those of you that remember when Iran took our American’s hostage might appreciate when I say they are some 40 years past due for a good old fashion American A** WHOOPIN. These are the same people that spent a decade fighting Iraq and got nowhere. Our troops plowed through the infamous Iraqi Guard like they were Girl Scouts… Sorry, I don’t mean to offend the Girl Scouts, they could take these clown out.
