President Obama was among the first to denounce the administration’s latest reckless act. He won’t be the last. Today, France, Germany and the UK said they regret the president’s decision. They will carry on without the USA.
Iran did not violate the agreement. The USA did. Withdrawing from the JCPOA isolates us from our allies. It further destabilizes the volatile Middle East. It weakens our international diplomacy, maybe fatally. If we cannot uphold our own commitments, why would any country come to the negotiating table?
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
The JCPOA is not the only promise we ought to keep. Volunteer rescuers the White Helmets have saved thousands of lives in Syria. The USA provides a third of their funding. That funding has been frozen while the State Department conducts an “active review”.
