Iran hardliners, pragmatists show unity in response to Trump

Iran and the P5+1 group of global mediators (Russia, the United Kingdom, China, the United States, France and Germany) signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program in July 2015 in Vienna. The White House has already arguably set the stage for such a course of action, with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley emphasizing that even if Trumpdecertifies Iranian compliance before Sunday it would not necessarily mean an American exit from the seven-party accord.
His judgment is shared by a number of conservative organizations and members of Congress. He was meeting with United States military leaders in the white House Cabinet Room on.
Q: What impact would refusal to certify have?
First, it would mean that the United States could sanction the IRGC, a group that plays a significant role in Iran's economy.
If Trump declines to certify the Iran deal, US congressional leaders would have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Tehran suspended under the agreement. Even the senior officials of his government think that such a decision would not serve United States national interests. In return, harsh economic sanctions were lifted and Barack Obama foolishly delivered $400 million in cash to Tehran, followed by $1.3 billion two days later, purportedly to settle a long-standing dispute from the 1970s.
Trump's words have been a gift to Iran's hard-liners, and a withdrawal would buttress Iran's extremists, at the expense of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's more moderately-inclined brand of politics.
Q: What would Congress do?
J Street is trying to convince Republicans in Congress to "save the Iran deal".
Nonetheless, Congress allowed the deal to take effect, approving a compromise that included the certification requirement.
He added that the USA would need to move their military bases beyond Iran's missile capabilities, implying that they would be under threat of attack. Shoving Trump to go after Iran are Arab nations which are increasingly scary of Iran's growing presence in the Middle East, since the fall of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. He said, "They have not lived up to the spirit of the agreement". There's reason to suggest the Iran Deal might be at the heart of the dispute. Partial victory is better than total defeat, and we should not simply assume that we will never be able to deal with Iran.
In a second intelligence report obtained by Fox News, the German state of Hessen said Iran, Pakistan, North Korea and Sudan use "guest academics" in the country for illegal activities related to nuclear and other weapons programs. According to France 24, the agency's Director General Yukiya Amano reiterated this claim again on Monday.
Toying with a serious nuclear agreement to influence Iran in other areas is simply irresponsible and risky. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who has supported sticking with the deal, has said he believes Tehran violates its "spirit" by continuing to promote destabilizing actions in the region.
Opening up a new confrontation with Iran, opposed by both the US's enemies and allies, could be one of the nails in his coffin.
The NCRI says there are four sites that are key to the weapons programme and are hidden from nuclear inspectors - Pazhouheshkadeh, Nouri, Hafte Tir and Sanjarian.
Some Obama-era officials had hoped the nuclear deal would give a boost to so-called pragmatists in Tehran over more hard-line factions.
Q: What do USA allies say?
Tension between the USA and Iran is ratcheting up.
Warnings came after the White House said on Friday that President Donald Trump would announce new U.S. responses to Iran's missile tests, support for "terrorism" and cyber operations as part of his new Iran strategy.
The U.S. would likely lose much of its leverage with Iran if it snaps the sanctions back in place.
