Trump’s motive in exiting the Iran deal may have been to trash yet another piece of Obama’s legacy, but the target was more than just the deal: it was Iran.

A star-studded list of generals and spy chiefs – US & Israeli – agree that the US should stay in JCPOA. But a reality star, a radical, an Arab man-child, & a politician who has been crying wolf about Iran since 1992, these guys carry the day. Trump & Co. don’t want peace & safety. They want war with Iran.
Netanyahu’s show Monday disregarded the IDF’s statement that the Iran deal will keep nukes out of Iran for 10+ yrs. It also lacked proof. But it gave Trump (& Bibi’s own drooping voter base) memorable images and catch-phrases. The info he presented with such urgency is old & familiar to anyone who has read IAEA reports.
