Don't miss this because the bigger worry is that the U.S. could begin to interdict ships carrying goods to or from Iran, which could potentially lead to a military confrontation in the run-up to our election! 2 years ago, the Trump withdrew from an international agreement that lifted most sanctions on Iran in exchange for strict limits on Iran’s nuclear program. No amount of legalistic contortions can change that simple fact. That’s not how international agreements work. Now, he claims that the U.S. is still part of the Iran deal because he wants t o prevent the expiration of an arms embargo and use a provision in the deal to “snap back” global sanctions on Iran. This behavior erodes the integrity of every international accord going forward. The tragedy is that the US has alienated European allies who share the common goal of curbing Iran’s most worrisome behavior."
