JCPOA Is Not a Treaty, and Has No Legal Status

If the Tehran regime rushes to the bomb, the Iranians will “create a much bigger set of problems than they face now,” the State Department diplomat leading negotiations with European officials on the future of the July 2015 nuclear deal with Iran said on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump faces a deadline of May 12 to recertify the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). There are strong indications that he will not do so without major changes to the deal.

In an interview with NPR, negotiator Brian Hook stated, “What we are trying to do is to address the deficiencies of the Iran nuclear deal.” The administration, he added, is working “on achieving a supplemental agreement that the president has requested that would address a lot of the problems that we have with the existing deal.”

Such agreements, says Hook, are not unusual. “If you look at the history of arms control it’s very common for one deal to then be improved upon or supplanted by another deal,” he stated, “and so what we’re asking for has a lot of precedent historically.”

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.
