Jay Ambrose: Obama deal with Iran was all talk

GETTY•EPAEU news British MEP tears into Jean Claude Juncker's handling of Donald Trump

The danger that military tensions in the Middle East will mount after the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is growing, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the Moscow-based think tank Valdai International Discussion Club Tuesday. In a separate interview on CNN's "State of the Union", he said Iran's economic condition is "really quite shaky", so the impact of sanctions "could be dramatic".

The fact is, Trump kept pushing Iran to exhibit peaceful intent, it did not and we are therefore in a situation where its continuing evil is ever more a real peril even if unseen by those who do not want to see.

He added that progress had been made towards a political agreement on measures that should be taken to keep the nuclear deal in place following Washington's withdrawal.

BOLTON: Well, I think you have to start first with the fundamental deficiencies of the deal itself.

So far, China, France, Russia, Britain, Germany and Iran remain in the accord, which placed controls on Iran's nuclear program and led to a relaxation of economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has acknowledged that the Iran nuclear deal "certainly has weaknesses" but says it should be preserved. So, the rationale for getting out of the deal is that it was contrary to American national security interests when we entered into it, and it hadn't gotten any better with age.

TAPPER: The U.S. essentially, at least as of now, going it alone, how will that force Iran back to the table? In the meantime, and with technical support from cash-starved North Korea, they can continue to develop advanced ICBM delivery systems, along with hundreds of thousands more missiles targeted on Israel from Syria.

Girl, 11, dies after tree falls on vehicle in Newburgh
The Journal News says the National Weather Service will investigate potential tornado sites from Port Jervis, New York into CT . Police said the Newburgh Fire Department was called to 23 Robinson Ave. about 4:15 p.m. for a report of a tree on a vehicle.

Ahead of the meeting Iran's top diplomat has spoken about the JCPOA after the USA withdrawal from the deal, Sputnik reported.

We can confidently bet that this timely message was also directed to long-suffering North Korean people. But even assuming that he is right, what evidence is there that Iran would agree to terms more favorable to the United States after we left an existing agreement when, at the very least, they have support from Russian Federation and China?

The deal from the start never said hey, stop everything.

The president continued, "In other words, at a point when the United States had maximum leverage, this disastrous deal gave this regime - and it's a regime of great terror - many billions of dollars, some of it in actual cash".

All of these appeasement nods would somehow work out, the Barack Obama team said, because we would build better relations with Iran over time and we've got a good inspection regime. These companies will have 90 to 180 days to wind down their operations in Iran, or they will run afoul of the USA banking system.

And leaving the assembly Mr Zarif revealed he anticipated to see outcomes from European leaders "throughout the subsequent few weeks".

Some good has come out of the Iranian deal, such as Iran sending Russian Federation much of its super-enriched uranium while getting all kinds of natural uranium back, but it was Obama who facilitated the USA departure.
