Iran breaches nuclear fuel limit set by deal Trump abandoned over a year ago.

There was no doubt this was coming.

Courtesy of NYT:

Iran has exceeded a key limitation on how much nuclear fuel it can possess under the 2015 international pact curbing its nuclear program, effectively declaring that it would no longer respect an agreement that President Trump abandoned more than a year ago, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported on Monday.

The breach of the limitation, which restricted Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium to about 660 pounds, does not by itself give the country the material to produce a nuclear weapon. But it is the strongest signal yet that Iran is moving to abandon the limits and restore the far larger stockpile that took the United States and five other nations years to persuade Tehran to send abroad.

It was unclear how much the action would escalate the tensions between Washington and Tehran after the downing of an American surveillance drone in June nearly resulted in military strikes.

But it returns the focus to Iran’s two-decade pursuit of technology that could produce a nuclear weapon — exactly where it was before President Barack Obama and President Hassan Rouhani of Iran struck their deal four years ago.

It should be noted that Iran stuck to their part of the deal for over a year after America pulled out and after they implemented new sanctions. 

I am by no means an Iranian apologist but it is hard to label them the bad guys in all of this.

Trump has been pushing for a conflict with Iran since he took office, and at the end that may be exactly what he gets.

Keep in mind that President Obama made a historic agreement with Iran to avoid this very thing, so if there is a military conflict we know exactly who is responsible for any lives lost.

    “You can’t go by what he says since he appears to make no distinction between truth and lies. For that matter, between fantasies and realities.”
    “Trump loves to brag about polls. Though, as with other things, it doesn’t matter much if his brags are true or false. But he doesn’t go by polls. He goes by his gut.” “The likelihood is that Trump will rant and rave. Promising to rain down the black rain. Threatening Armageddon. Fire and brimstone and worse. We know that he loves to raise the threat level to quadruple the legal decibel limit. We know that he loved to have his lawyers do it in his business, his divorces, and his extra-marital affairs.”
    “He is also being warned, quite regularly now, that lies about going to war will be treated quite differently than his lies about never having met the woman he raped nor the porn star he paid off, about showing his taxes, about his tax cuts, and all the rest. His regime has no reserve of credibility.”

    Ignorance. It has to exist so that we can exist. But this belief in salvation is – at this point in our collective and greater evolution – nothing else than a trance for the belligerent.

      Eh. A few bombs land in the US and they will wake from their trance real fast like now. Lol. And I am not talking about Iran being the one dropping them. Raised eyebrows.

        Korean Air Lines Flight 007 (also known as KAL007 and KE007) was a scheduled Korean Air Lines flight from New York City to Seoul via Anchorage, Alaska. On 1 September 1983, the South Korean airliner serving the flight was shot down by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor.
        the incident was one of the most important events that prompted the Reagan administration to allow worldwide access to the United States Global Positioning System (GPS).

        Congressman Larry McDonald ’75-’83
        “A conservative Democrat, McDonald was active in numerous civic organizations and maintained one of the most conservative voting records in Congress. He was known for his staunch opposition to communism. He was the second president of the John Birch Society.”

        JB$ – Russia won’t be able to intercept NK nukes. Russia will wave them along this time. Yes. Destroy the USA.

    ““Our viewers may have forgotten, but during the tanker war in the late ‘80s when Reagan did take some action, we actually made a mistake,” Keane said, referring to President Ronald Reagan. “We had a USS warship shoot down an Iranian airliner in Iranian airspace. Two-hundred ninety people killed. Sixty-six of them were children. And we took that for a Tomahawk F-14. ”

    “eane’s reference to the United States’ accidental downing of an Iranian commercial airliner in 1988 made a profound impact on the president, who was “spOOked” when he learned of the incident”

    “Silkwood was shot largely in both New Mexico and Texas on a budget of $10 million. Factual accuracy was maintained throughout the script, with some incidents exactly parallel to the real-life experiences of Karen Silkwood. One scene in particular involved the activation of a radiation alarm at the plant. Silkwood herself had forty times the legal limit of radioactive contamination in her system.”

    Iran is doing this to get the other nations that signed the deal to find a work around the sanctions so that Iran and they will continue the deal.

    Without the United States.

    Trump is ensuring that the US will be shut out of the world stage looking in and that the influence of the US will be insignificant. Soon we shall the third wheel crazy Uncle at the Thanksgiving table that no one talks to.
