Pompeo’s Latest Iran Scheme

by | Apr 26, 2020

Well, it’s an article by David Sanger in the New York Times, so who knows if a single word of it is true.

But what it says is that the U.S. plans on reentering the Iran nuclear deal of 2015, just to try to force a “snap-back” of the UN sanctions regime and ban on conventional weapons sales to Iran, get this, in the name of Iran deliberately exceeding some of the limitations on their enrichment program in response to the U.S. breaking the deal first — something they’re actually allowed to do in the deal.

Then again, Pompeo is who he is, so it’s no surprise.
