The country of Iran has always been trouble for many United States Presidents.
Their refusal to comply with nuclear requests and to stop threatening neighboring countries has proved to be trying at best.
President Trump has recently stepped up his pressures on Iran by placing more economic and military pressures on the country.
Trump is trying to get the nation of Iran to live up to their end of deals they have made with the United States.
Hassan Rouhani, the current President of Iran, state that Iran will lower its compliance regarding the deal that he made back in 2015 with the United States.
President Trump took the country out of the agreement dealing with limiting Iran’s nuclear program.
The deal was struck with Iran so the sanctions that were imposed could be lifted.
Lifting of the sanctions would help provide relief to the people of Iran.
President Rouhani stated that it will keep some uranium and “heavy water” in its own borders that is related to its own nuclear program.
The deal struck in 2015 was to allow the water and uranium to be sold to others outside of the country.
By keeping the uranium and water internally is a break of the original deal.
He has also given the countries still in on the deal a 60-day deadline to come up with better terms of the deal.
If Britain, France, China, Russia, Germany, and the European Union fail to changes the deal, then Iran will start manufacturing uranium that has been enriched and processed.
President Rouhani has stated, “We felt that the nuclear deal needs a surgery and the painkiller pills of the last year have been ineffective.”
He also stated that, “This surgery is for saving the deal, not destroying it.”
The effort to strike a new deal is aimed at the United States pulling out of the original deal.
This act has, in Iran’s mind, made it impossible for the deal to continue the way that it has been designed.
This warning came out just as President Trump and the White House were considering a military confrontation.
There have been reports that Iran was planning to attack American military bases in the region.
The President of the United States views Iran and its government as a terrorist organization.
Iran has influence in many areas of the region and does not hesitate to enact violence against people if it benefits their agenda.
Mike Pompeo traveled to Iraq to inform Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi that Iran is an increased threat that needs attention.
Mike Pompeo stated that, “We talked to them about the importance of Iraq ensuring that it’s able to adequately protect Americans in their country.
I think everyone will look at the Iranian decision and have to make their own assessment about how much increased risk there is.”
5,000 troops are still stationed in Iraq and would be in danger of attack if Iran moves on its threat.
Iran is a major exporter of oil and its has been impossible to export the commodity with the sanctions in place. Iran wants a new deal.
And it looks like they are going to play hardball to get one.
President Trump is ready to deal with Iran.
He has amazingly been able to keep Iran from bringing its oil to market which has brought its income down to nearly nothing.
There has been an attempt by some countries involved in the deal to allow financial access for the country.
This entails attempts to go around U. S. sanctions.
President Trump will have to continue to deal with a zero-tolerance with Iran in order to ensure that American lives are protected.
There is a lot at stake in the region and around the world to allow a nuclear country to continue on with terrorist practices and threats to other nations.
It is no secret that there is tension between Iran and Israel, a United States ally.
Threats of attack and military action have become a way of life for the nation of Israel.
The United States stands with Israel and will defend the country should there be a need to do so.
