THE GATHERING STORM: ISRAEL ON HIGH ALERT AS PRESIDENT TRUMP FORMALLY PULLS THE UNITED STATES OUT OF OBAMA’S PHONY IRANIAN NUCLEAR TREATY

 

EXTRAORDINARY WESTERN MILITARY MOVEMENTS IN MIDDLE EAST BEFORE TRUMP’S IRAN DECISION – SOME VIA ISRAEL

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Unusual Western military movements in the Middle East in the past 48 hours may tie in with President Donald Trump’s decision to jump forward his decision on the Iran nuclear deal. He released a Twitter post on Monday, May 7 saying: “I will be announcing my decision on the Iran Deal tomorrow from the White House at 2:00 pm.” – i.e. four days before the May 12 deadline. DEBKAfile’s Washington and military sources report exclusively that the president’s announcement came against the background of unusual US, British and French forces heading for the Middle East and deploying in countries bordering on Syria. These startling events point suggestively in two directions:
Trump may have decided on the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran – although this is not definite.
He is moving ahead with this decision in the light of war tensions mounting between Israel and Iran and Hezbollah in Syria and Lebanon.
Our military sources also reveal fleets of US warplanes and advanced surveillance drones working around the clock to track the slightest military movements around Syrian and Lebanese Mediterranean shores. They also report that Britain has in the last few hours transferred another squadron of advanced Typhoon fighter jets to the Middle East, with France adding Rafale and Mirage 2000 jets. Some of these flights reached their forward positions through Israel’s air space.

THE GATHERING STORM: ISRAEL ON HIGH ALERT AS PRESIDENT TRUMP FORMALLY PULLS THE UNITED STATES OUT OF OBAMA’S PHONY IRANIAN NUCLEAR TREATY

THE GATHERING STORM: Israel On High Alert As President Trump Formally Pulls The United States Out Of Obama’s Phony Iranian Nuclear Treaty

Trump’s announcement will start a 90-day countdown to the restoration of sanctions. Once sanctions are re-imposed, the U.S. effectively would be out of the deal. It’s not clear which sanctions lifted under the deal Trump plans to immediately re-impose. He has several options. A more limited move could leave Trump more room to potentially stay in the deal if other members agree to toughen it.
President Trump on Tuesday announced plans to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying it has failed to halt the country’s nuclear ambitions. Speaking in the Diplomatic Room of the White House, Trump said: “I am announcing today the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Proving once again that his campaign promises were not simply empty talk, President Trump in one fell swoop cut the cord on Obama’s treasonous Iran Nuclear Treaty and officially announced that the United States would immediately withdraw from this phony treaty. Not only that, President Trump has also said that hard-hitting sanctions would be instituted as soon as possible. And the crazy, end times events we have telling you since 2016 would take place during the 70th anniversary week of Israel’s regathering continue to unfold right on target. Are you ready for what comes next?
Trump’s announcement will start a 90-day countdown to the restoration of sanctions. Once sanctions are re-imposed, the U.S. effectively would be out of the deal.
It’s not clear which sanctions lifted under the deal Trump plans to immediately re-impose. He has several options. A more limited move could leave Trump more room to potentially stay in the deal if other members agree to toughen it.
If he follows through on a sweeping imposition of sanctions, the move threatens to topple the Iran nuclear agreement as a whole – and with it, his predecessor’s signature foreign policy achievement.
The president began briefing foreign and congressional leaders on his decision ahead of his 2 p.m. announcement. And he started the day by warning former Secretary of State John Kerry not to meddle in the negotiations.
“John Kerry can’t get over the fact that he had his chance and blew it! Stay away from negotiations John, you are hurting your country!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday.
This was a reference to reports that Kerry was meeting with foreign officials in a bid to salvage the pact. Speaking at a summit Tuesday in Italy, Kerry did not back down, saying the Middle East is “safer with this agreement” and framing this juncture as a choice between peace and war.
Trump’s announcement comes ahead of a May 12 deadline to make a decision on sanctions.
It follows efforts by European allies to convince Trump to keep the deal, even with changes. But Trump reportedly was unconvinced. Since the 2016 presidential campaign, he has railed against the agreement and its Obama administration negotiators.
The 2015 pact lifted most U.S. and international sanctions against the country, in exchange for Iran agreeing to restrictions on its nuclear program making it impossible to produce a bomb, along with rigorous inspections – terms generally set for 10-15 years.
But Israel, Gulf Arab states and many congressional Republicans said the deal was a giveaway to Tehran that ultimately paves the path to a nuclear-armed Iran several years in the future.
“Perhaps the nuclear deal’s most unforgivable flaw is that its original architects chose to stand with and empower Iran’s mullahs over the Iranian people, whose opposition to their corrupt and criminal government continues to grow,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote in a Fox News op-ed urging Trump to abandon the pact and ratchet up sanctions.
But Trump’s decision could lead to retaliation from Iran in the near-term. If the deal collapses, Iran could resume prohibited enrichment activities, while businesses and banks doing business with Iran would have to scramble to extricate themselves or run afoul of the U.S.
While Trump himself was tight-lipped about his decision in the run-up to the announcement, Iranian officials also were left guessing.
In Tehran, President Hassan Rouhani sought to calm nerves. “It is possible that we will face some problems for two or three months, but we will pass through this,” Rouhani said. Rouhani earlier warned of “grave” consequences if Trump pulled back on the agreement.
Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes, who played a key role in the deal, also tweeted that “Trump is blowing that up with no understanding of what’s actually in the Deal, no plan for what comes next, and no support from our closest European allies, Russia or China.”
A factor leading to Tuesday’s decision may have been Israel’s public lobbying. A week ago, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appealed to the U.S. president by making explosive allegations that new evidence proved Tehran had lied about its nuclear program and adherence to the pact.
But even Trump’s secretary of state and the U.N. agency that monitors nuclear compliance have agreed that Iran, so far, has lived up to its side of the deal. source
