Nate has left town! Like all good windbags he is headed toward DC……now onto the news of the new week…..
To answer the question……He is not!
This week will tell the tale….will our president be so stupid as to “decertify” the Iranian nuke deal?
Word is President Trump will “decertify” the Iran nuclear deal next week, giving Congress 60 days to decide whether to stay in the agreement or void it by imposing new sanctions on Iran. Citing “people briefed” on the matter, the Washington Post reports Trump is expected to deliver a speech, possibly on Oct. 12, laying out his administration’s new Iranian policy. CNN, whose sources include “two senior US officials,” reports that policy would be to work within the framework of the nuclear deal, which limits Iran’s nuclear activities, while attempting to strengthen it for the US. But Iran has said it’s not interested in renegotiating the deal, and European leaders say they don’t want to change the terms of the deal.
Germany, France, Britain, Russia, China, Iran, and even the US all agree Iran has held up its side of the nuclear deal. And on Tuesday Defense Secretary James Mattis said he believes it’s “in our national security interest” to remain in the deal. But Trump campaigned on the nuclear deal being unfair to the US. The president is said to be weary of a tenet of the deal wherein he must go to Congress every 90 days to report whether Iran is complying with it and if it remains in the national interest of the US.
I think that this will be a bonehead move……first, I would bet that he has NO idea what is said in the deal….but yet he is trapp[ed by his political rhetoric during the campaign and now if he wants to retain his base support he feels he must do something.
Let me help you understand the deal and then you will be one ahead of the guy called “president”….plus it is not that difficult…..Negotiators reached a historic accord last summer to limit Tehran’s nuclear ability in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions. Here is a guide to the Iran nuclear deal.
I told you it was not that difficult.
People everywhere are masking the case for the Iranian nuke deal……
Wake up. We are sleepwalking into an armed conflict. The hidden scandal of the Iraq War — the manipulation of intelligence to support a predetermined outcome — is now an overt political strategy to undermine a multilateral nonproliferation agreement. At a time when Iran was hurtling toward a nuclear threshold not easily undone by force or persuasion, the United States struck an accord with allies and adversaries alike that averted the solution everyone feared most — the kinetic option.
Now, those most vocal prior to the deal about the imminent threat of a nuclear Iran want to scrap the deal, put the world back on the brink of conflict, and open up a second nuclear front.

There is so much wrong with this idea of not certifying the deal and yet with all data available they are still playing a dangerous game……why?

The US has a major problem with the situation in North Korea….the nukes, the missiles, and the rhetoric…..and then Trump pulls out of this deal with Iran then he as doubled the nuke problem overnight
Trump is choosing a multi-front nuclear stand-off……he could be choosing a war over something as stupid as his political rhetoric.
To add fuel to the fire….trump offers up some cryptic statement at a dinner for military leaders…..
President Trump made an ominous remark after meeting with his top military commanders—and declined to explain what he was talking about. “You guys know what this represents?” Trump told reporters as he posed for a photo with First Lady Melania Trump, military officials, and their spouses before a White House dinner Thursday night. “Maybe it’s the calm before the storm.” When asked to clarify the remark, Trump said “we have the world’s great military people” present, CBS reports. Asked again what the “storm” might be, Trump said: “You’ll find out” and ended the questioning.
Trump may have been talking about Iran: Earlier Thursday, sources said Trump plans to “decertify” Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal, which is due for recertification by Oct. 15. “The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence and chaos across the Middle East,” Trump said at the meeting with military leaders, per the Guardian. “That is why we must put an end to Iran’s continued aggression and nuclear ambitions.” There has also been speculation that Trump was referring to action against ISIS or North Korea, reports the BBC.
Great timing! The weekend was spent in wild speculation by the MSM….something the media excels at….wild speculation.
But with this guy named Trump….we will not know for sure what what will come out of his mouth until it comes out of his mouth.
