Trump Faces Uphill Battle On Iran Deal After Losing Boris Johnson

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

President Trump suffered a setback in his efforts to persuade allies to abandon the Iran nuclear deal once and for all when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson signaled that the United Kingdom remains committed to the agreement.

Johnson has positioned himself as a close partner of Washington and backed Trump’s decision to launch the drone strike that killed Iran’s most powerful military leader. On Thursday, he spoke to Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian president, to demand an end to further military retaliation.

“They discussed the situation in the region following the death of Qassem Suleimani, and the prime minister called for an end to hostilities,” said a spokesman for No. 10 Downing St.

Johnson also "underlined the U.K. commitment to the [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] and to ongoing dialogue to avoid nuclear proliferation and reduce tension," the spokesman said.

The statement puts the U.K. at odds with the United States at a crucial time for the Middle East.

A day earlier, Trump claimed that sanctions lifted under the terms of the deal had freed money for a “terror spree” and paid for the missiles fired on Iraqi bases on Tuesday night. He demanded that the other signatories, including Germany, France, Russia, and China, recognized that “reality.”

“They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal — or JCPOA — and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place,” he said.

We shall see once we start offering him a good solid trade deal. Then the commitment may waver.

Iran will continue trying to build an atomic bomb even if everyone was committed to the Iran nuclear deal. In 30 or 40 years they're finally going to get one.

Boris, you have that much faith/trust in the Ayatollah and his scumbags?

Boris may be calculating wrong. Yes, Israel is the closest target, but UK isn’t that far off, closer than the US.

Never “hope” for evil people to not behave in an evil way.

I wonder what any Brits with ties to WWII think of the foolish mistake that this Brit is making - the same mistake that was made in 1938.
