Trump Will Move Beyond 2015 Nuclear Deal if Iran Fails Compliance Test

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said during an address in Washington, DC on Tuesday that President Donald Trump was not guaranteed to certify Iranian compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement — known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — when his administration is next obliged to report to Congress on the matter in October.

“If the president finds that he cannot in good faith certify Iranian compliance, he would initiate a process whereby we move beyond narrow technicalities, and look at the big picture,” Haley said in a speech to the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) think tank.

“At issue is our national security interest,” Haley said. “It’s past time we had an Iran nuclear policy that acknowledged that.”

Haley argued that the JCPOA had produced a situation where stakeholders were prepared to ignore Iranian violations if that meant preserving the deal.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
