Posted on 10/05/2017 1:24:38 PM PDT by Innovative
President Trump plans to decertify the Iran nuclear deal next week and announce that it is not in the United States' national interest, The Washington Post reported Thursday.
Such an announcement would leave the next move up to Congress, which would have 60 days to use a fast-track process to reimpose sanctions and deliver a potentially fatal blow to the deal, which Tehran agreed to in 2015 with the U.S. and five other nations.
Trump faces an Oct. 15 deadline to tell Congress whether Iran remains in compliance with the Obama-era nuclear accord, which gave Tehran billions of dollars of sanctions relief in exchange for limits on its nuclear program.

Trump to announce that hell decertify Iran nuclear deal, kicking issue to Congress
The president will announce his plans in a speech tentatively scheduled for Oct. 12, saying the international agreement is not in the interest of the United States, people briefed on an emerging White House strategy for Iran said. The move would mark the first step in a process that could result in resuming U.S. sanctions against Iran, which would crumble a deal limiting Irans nuclear activities that the country reached in 2015 with the United States and five other nations.
It is right on the WP front page:
And, how about getting that 4 billion back that the Clintons gave to North Korea?
I’m sure Beltway Bob Corker will get right on the issue.
You don’t really expect us to get the money back do you?
Does “de-certification” mean they don’t have to hold up their end of the bargain AND they get to keep our money?
Seems likely. Good luck if anybody thinks theyll give any money back regardless. This will just allow them to be open about their bomb building if they want to be. If I were them, Id keep up the secrecy on the off chance Israel wont hit their facilities.
We’re going to have to face down Iran at some point, just like we’re having to face down North Korea.
The sooner the better.
We need to take action right away with North Korea.
They are on the verge. It doesn’t get better from here.
Now that’s what ya call MAGA!
Other people familiar with ... spoke on condition of anonymity
well, there you have it. this may or may not be true, since the people familiar with could be the guy who runs the floor buffer at night, or there may simply be no source at all.
since its from WaPo, its best to assume its fake news until otherwise heard from by Trump himself, so until then its pointless to make further comment one way or the other on the meritoriousness of this particular bit of fake news.
Remember the No Nukes concerts back in the 80’s? They were done to raise awareness of the dangers of nuclear proliferation particularly under the eeeevil Reagan regime. They were the brainchild of Jackson Browne and John Hall, lead singer of Orleans and my former Congressman (NY11) Sting, Springsteen, the Talking Heads, Pat Benetar, U2, an up and coming Madonna and just about everyone who was someone performed at these venues. Now that the Iranians and fat boy in North Korea are obtaining nukes of their own perhaps it’s time to resurrect these concerts to warn a new generation of the clear and present dangers of a nuclear holocaust? (((((((((((crickets chirping ))))))))))) The anti nuke activists of days gone by are quite conspicuous by their silence and tells us all we need to know.
Honest question: did we give them money, or simply give them access to funds which were seized by the feds following the hostage crisis?
What it tells you, is that they were always more concerned with the evil of the U. S. having them, than the evil of the U. S. S. R. or China having them.
The money was in cash consisting of dollars, euros and I think Swiss Frank’s. It was delivered on pallets piled up in the belly of one of our transports.
Good. . Get the money back and tell them they are on notice. Quit making the bomb or you’re going to get hit. Simple as that.
Why all the talk???
Just say or tweet, “Iran Deal, it’s done, we’re out!”
How hard is that???
I seem to remember the plane load(s) of cash flown to Iran during the days of Obummer. That was OUR money.
This is what can happen when a President tries to do unilateral diplomacy without getting treaties ratified through Congress.
Suck it, Obama!
Thanks Bill Clinton and Obama. Now Trump has to deal with NK and Iran. Never Ever vote for a democrat for President. They are a national security risk.
