President Trump has just announced that the US will pull out of the Iran nuclear deal, saying that the evidence Israel provided last week proves Iran’s real intentions:
“At the heart of the [Iran nuclear] deal was a fiction that a murderous regime desired only a peace nuclear program. Today we have definitive proof this was a lie.
“Last week, Israel published documents concealed by Iran showing that Iran” planned to continue its nuclear weapons program.
“This was one-sided deal that shouldn’t have been made. It didn’t bring calm, and it didn’t bring peace.
“In the years since it was reached, Iran’s military budget grew by almost 40 percent while its economy is doing badly. It used new funds to build nuclear-capable missiles and sow havoc in the Middle East and beyond.”
