Biden’s Possible Reengagement on Iran Nuclear Deal
As the Biden administration reengages Iran on the Obama-era nuclear deal, Israel is widely attributed to have taken steps to thwart Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. The New York Times reported Israel played a role in an explosion at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility. Iranian foreign minister, Zarif, warned that Iran would take revenge against Israel for the alleged attack.
As everyone’s going to be looking at Israel over these alleged actions, I want to focus for a moment on President Biden’s desire to reenter the failed Iran nuclear deal. At the end of the Trump administration in January of just this year, America’s Middle East allies were unified against Iran. That’s Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and all the other Sunni nations. They were all allied against Tehran. On top of that, America had severe sanctions, which added pressure that would ultimately force Iran to have to make hard decisions about its survival in the future. But now, President Biden is toying with releasing this pressure. And I’ll tell you what he’ll find in Iran if he does, nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
