    Trump should stop fantasizing about killing the Iran nuclear deal

    (The Tehran Times does not agree with all the views expressed in this article because Iran, as a signatory to the NPT, has never been seeking to build nuclear arms and all the commotion created over Tehran’s nuclear program prior to the July 2015 nuclear agreement were politically motivated. Yet the article written by Lawrence J. Korb and posted on the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists on Jan. 15, cites reasons why Iran’s nuclear program is separate from its missile program and that attempts by Donald Trump to change the text of the nuclear agreement is mere fantasy).

    Killing the Iran nuclear deal will be bad for the U.S.

    After months of threatening to undo the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Donald Trump once again opted to extend the deal by waiving economic sanctions on Iran. This was the “last chance,” he declared in a Jan. 12 statement, “to either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.”

It would be a remote proposition to say that the deal has not met its claim to being a good non-proliferation agreement. The thing about the deal that stings Trump and his fellows may be that it came across the idea they wanted Iran to represent.
