Trump: EU Must Scrap Nuke Deal or Else
USA President Donald Trump has threatened to impose a 25 percent tariff on the import of cars manufactured in Europe if continental powers continue to back the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal. Reports to this effect were confirmed by the defense minister of Germany, which along with Britain and France earlier this week triggered the accord’s dispute mechanism following a series of violations by Iran. In response, Tehran’s foreign minister said that London, Paris and Berlin had caved to USA pressure and accused President Trump of acting like a “high school bully.” Trump in May 2018 withdrew Washington from the agreement and re-imposed crippling economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Iran recently announced that it would no longer abide by any of the restrictions placed on its uranium enrichment program. Tensions between Washington and Tehran reached a crescendo this month with the targeted killing in a USA drone strike of Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani, to which Iran responded by launching a coordinated ballistic missile attack on Iraqi bases housing American soldiers.

Actually the world’s biggest “high-school bully,” is the Islamist regime in Iran that oppresses and intimidates its own people and especially delights in harassing Israel and the USA. Iran’s bully gang includes terrorist entities such as the Lebanon-based Hezbollah and Hamas which rules the Gaza Strip. Both have been unceasing thorns in Israel’s side. Pray that the EU nations will be of one accord that the 2015 nuclear agreement has from the beginning simply been a game of pretending on the part of Tehran - a game that needs to be scrapped in full.
