Yadlin to Trump: Don't stop Iran deal now, raise pressure

Iran warns United States against designating its Revolutionary Guards as terrorist group

IRGC chief sends strong warning to Trump

The hawkish turn in US policy towards Iran has alarmed many of its European allies.

Trump, who has called the pact an "embarrassment" and "the worst deal ever negotiated", has been weighing whether it serves us security interests as he faces an October 15 deadline for certifying that Iran is complying with its terms. This left even his Western allies flabbergasted. Even if Trump were to withdraw, it would not necessarily spell the end of the deal.

The IRGC is already under unilateral American sanctions, but recent reports indicate president Trump intends to designate the elite army as a terrorist organization, which would have implication in Syria and Iraq, where both the us armed forces and the IRGC are operating.

United States media say the president will announce next Thursday that he will not be certifying the deal, on the grounds it does not serve U.S. security interests.

Such a step would stop short of pulling out of the agreement, leaving that decision to US Congress.

The author then emphasizes that under the current circumstances, Trump's stance has isolated the U.S., and contrary to the pre-accord conditions when the whole world was against Iran, now the worldwide community is against the United States. Both of them are thought to have advised Trump not to withhold certification. 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.

Those sorts of acts, which don't involve nuclear development, were not covered by the agreement. Our country's military leaders say so too. The nature of what is done, and what kind of storm it may be, is up to our enemies. Sagacious souls believe natural calamities are ruthless and unpredictable but man-made disasters sometimes turn out to be more merciless and fickle.

McDonald's offers a sweet surprise for "obsauced" fans
Fewer than 1,000 restaurants across the United States will take part in the sauce and poster promotion, according to McDonald's . It was a big hit for McDonald's in 1998, when it was available as a promotional tie-in to the Disney movie, " Mulan ".

Earlier, Corker, the chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, designated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as the men who "separate our country from chaos", the implication being without these "adults", hindering him, Trump would set the nation "on a path to World War III". Afghanistan and Pakistan are battling extremists created and trained by the Central Intelligence Agency during the cold war after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.

Trump's absurdly frail personality is behind this latest ruse that is designed to create new tension with Iran, so that he can be seen to be the one getting a better deal with Tehran; and, perhaps more importantly, so he can be at the vortex of a crisis that is guaranteed to keep the USA media busy, therefore missing Trump's domestic failings. The length of time is based on the likelihood that the aircraft carriers will assume a disproportionately heavy share of the strikes if regional nations don't permit US air bases on their territory to be used against Iran. The West shattered the belief of these states in worldwide law, reinforcing the notion of might is right.

This feels a lot more like dodgeball than leadership.

"I have not seen any benefit from the deal, so what is Trump going to add to nothing?" asked Gholamreza Haeri, a 21-year-old architecture student.

GETTYIs Iran building nuclear capability?

That suspicion extended to Tehran's streets Monday. "The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East", he said.
