There will not be direct conflict, but proxy wars are already happening. What do you think Syria is?

US and Israel are happily sitting on sidelines watching their enemies kill each other.

The war they need to launch is this.

I wouldn't be so sure that Trump and his batch know what the f they're doing. If they turn up their aggressive stances things can quickly escalate. If it does end up a war though I don't think it would be with their own full planning and volition. There's 0 interest right now for the US to be involved in such a conflict. Israel on the other hand is a different story. We all know what Netenyahu thought of the Iran deal.

The Moumena3a gang should be kissing Obama's butt for leaving them with the Iran deal. May end up being his most important legacy.

Iran remains in compliance with nuclear deal, despite US withdrawal & sanctions – watchdog
Published time: 23 Feb, 2019

The unilateral US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement, its warmongering rhetoric and sanctions pressure, Tehran continues to honor all its obligations and remains compliant with the non-proliferation deal, the IAEA said.

In contradiction to Washington’s assertions that Iran is an unreliable partner and Israel’s claims that the Islamic republic is secretly pursuing a nuclear arms program, the International Atomic Energy Agency specifically noted that Tehran had offered full access to its nuclear sites as and when requested.

“Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the Additional Protocol and enhances confidence,” the IAEA report stated.

The Islamic Republic’s stock of low-enriched uranium remained well below the 202.8 kg limit and now stands at 163.8kg, the agency said, in the quarterly report. The country’s reserves of heavy water, which serves as the neutron moderator in the reactors, reached the level of 124.8 metric tonnes, still below the 130-tonne limit, the confidential assessment, reviewed by news agencies, said.

Iran remains in compliance with the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal in spite of the “toughest” American sanctions, introduced after Donald Trump unilaterally tore it up in May of last year.

Despite Washington’s pressure on its European allies to jointly pressure Iran, the rest of the signatories of the deal –China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Germany– continue to honor the key nuclear agreement. To alleviate the possible impact of the “toughest” US sanctions, the EU has devised a new mechanism, the so-called special purpose vehicle (SPV), and are also working on other financial channels to maintain ongoing business with Iran.

Iran’s Zarif grabs #MSC2019 spotlight, slams Trump and Israel (Munich Security Conference)

Like him or not, Zarif certainly knows his stuff and is quite convincing with his arguments to a point where the reporter tried to downplay Saddam’s use of chemical weapons against Iran and the Kurds provided to him by European nations as ancient history @36.0

Imagine she was interviewing Netanyahu and suggested we should forget about the holocaust and let Hitler rest in peace because it’s ancient history… Ironically, as I remember, Netanyahu did complain once to Putin suggesting that the Persians mistreated the Jews some 7000 years ago and that’s why he hates Iran:cool:

A consistent US policy opposed to Iran's regional expansion is welcome, and it is up to the US to decide what it has appetite for and what aligns with its interests.

Obama is long gone, but Kerry can still play with Zarif if he wants, on his own time though :)

Yea you might be right about Zarif but what struck me most in the above interview how aggressive the reporter is with him. She tried at multiple occasions shut him down when he mentioned Saddam’s use of chemical weapons against Iran and how the West gave it to him, covered up for him while using them and blocked Iran from defending itself in its own territory. This sounds like forbidding a US lawmaker who’s trying to defend his country from exposing Bin Laden or mentioning 9/11
What do you think?

البيت الابيض: ترامب يقرر عدم إصدار إعفاءات جديدة لاستيراد النفط الايراني

قال “البيت الابيض” إن “الرئيس الأميركي دونالد ترامب قرر إنهاء الإعفاءات التي سمح بموجبها لثماني دول بشراء النفط الإيراني بهدف تحقيق صادرات صفر من الخام في هذا البلد”، على حد تعبيره.

ولفت البيت الابيض الاثنين الى انه “اعتبارا من مطلع أيار/مايو ستواجه هذه الدول ومن ضمنها الصين والهند وكوريا الجنوبية وتركيا، عقوبات أميركية إذا استمرت في شراء النفط الإيراني”.
