"My parent's Greatest Generation [WWII], they fought to establish an int'l order that has prevented great power war for over 7 decades & it's currently under the most stress since the end of the Cold War" Gen Mark Milley, nominated as next chairman of @thejointstaff, tells #SASC
"From #EastAsia to the #MiddleEast to Eastern #Europe, authoritarian actors are testing the limits of the int'l system & seeking regional dominance while challenging int'l norms & undermining US interests" Gen Milley warns #SASC
"Our goal should be to sustain Great Power peace that has existed since World War II and deal firmly with all those who might challenge us" per Gen Milley

Sustained French diplomacy on Iran JCPoA to de-escalate
Macron:
-discussed with Trump on D-Day + Jul1 call and today
-spoke to Rouhani Jun 25+Jul6
His diplo adviser Emmanuel Bonne was in Iran June 19, going back tmrw, Wednesday
+ministerial and E3 contacts
Next deadline: July 15
Noteworthy how Iranians choosing to publicize visit by Macron’s diplo adviser Bonne. Iranian journos reporting Bonne told Shamkhani he doesnt come as mediator, not carrying a message from US+that Shamkhani said Iran’s reduction of commitments irreversible. Photos from IRNA/ISNA.

2019 is the 50th edition of the #SIPRIYearbook. Join SIPRI as we celebrate the occasion with a 50-day countdown and share the history of the Yearbook over the past 50 years. Watch the introductory video with SIPRI Director @dansmith2020:
The first #SIPRIYearbook was published in 1969 with the aim ‘to produce a factual and balanced account of a controversial subject—the arms race and attempts to stop it’. The rise in world military spending and disarmament efforts, including the #NPT, take central focus.
'In whatever way the nuclear situation is examined, the inescapable feature is what enormous quantities of weapons have been amassed' – Movement towards a first-strike capability by the #US and #USSR, the #SALT talks and European security were a focus of the 1970 #SIPRIYearbook.

The long, long wake, full of keening, for the #JCPOA goes on and on, as the @washingtonpost piece by @EvelynNFarkas demonstrates. washingtonpost.com/outlook/whats-… From it’s signing in summer of ‘15 until @realDonaldTrump w/drawal in May 2018, Iran’s behavior re Syrian genocide, ICBMs 1
did not change. The regime did not “evolve” and hasn’t since the revolution. The #JCPOA was a desperate Hail Mary pass, a stumbling into the “Nixon Trap” of seeking significance through a history-making deal with an implacable enemy. It was appeasement, just like 1994 NK “deal.”
That @realDonaldTrump fumbled the response to Iran’s shoot down and then it turns out picked up his own loose ball win a cycber counter-strike does nothing but underscore the difference between 44 and 45. I don’t think voters will want appeasement back in 2021.

So @SecPompeo joins ⁦@AmbJohnBolton⁩ on the Manhattan-Beltway media elite hit list (see quote from ⁦@wendyrsherman⁩, still grieving at the #JCPOA Wake). W/ better coms —which came yesterday w/ “leak” of cyber-retaliation— all would’ve been fine nytimes.com/2019/06/22/wor…
It turns out not to be #RedLineRedux, but the cyber attack response was omitted from the @POTUS remarks. (“I picked option A, changed my mind and picked option B” instead of “I did nothing.”) Now left sees he did something significant against IRGC and they are aghast. Again.
The Metternichs of MSNBC promised us a “new Iran” which didn’t come, just as in 1994 they promised us a “contained North Korea,” which had 60 nukes when @realDonaldTrump was sworn in. Criticisms from the failed (twice over) appeasers matters not at all.

Now a shooting war with #Iran appears to have been avoided, at least for the weekend, it's vital we pause and ask ourselves the basic questions: What's the strategy? Is there even one? How did we get into this mess? And, how do we get out of it?

Time for a #geopolitics thread!
Right, so, here's the bottom line: The US has worked itself into a position whose likely outcomes are (a) war (b) internal regime change or (c) lasting damage to U.S. global leadership. I think we're heading for the latter. But first, I want to back up and review how we got here
For about 30 years, the U.S. & Iran maintained a cold, uncomfortable peace, generally content to hurl no more than invective at each other. Even in #Iraq, where #IRGC-backed militias attacked US forces, the two found their strategic interests aligned more often than not.

Abe: «Tengo la intención de transmitirle un mensaje del presidente de EE.UU.».
Jameneí: «No tengo la menor duda de su buena intención ni de su seriedad, pero en cuanto a lo que ha transmitido Vd. del presidente de EE.UU., (…)».
«(…) no considero a @realDonaldTrump personalmente digno de intercambiar mensajes con él, no tengo respuesta alguna que darle ni se la daré.»
«Nuestro problema con los EEUU no es la cuestión del “cambio de régimen”, que incluso aunque quieran (…)».
«(…) es algo que no pueden hacer, como anteriores presidentes de EEUU. Cuando Trump dice que no busca un cambio de régimen, miente, porque si pudiera lo haría, pero no puede».

God I missed these State Department briefings.
No stop please *wheezes*
State Department seems to confirm that David #Friedman was expressing official US policy when he said "Under certain circumstances... Israel has the right to retain some, but unlikely all, of the West Bank."

(1) Mhhh... less than one month left:

"Per July 7, Tehran will no longer abide by all the requirements of the 2015 nuclear deal, unless European nations can find an effective way to economically incentivize Iran to stay in it despite US sanctions."

#QAnon #JCPOA
(2) from yesterday:

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has arrived in Iran, looking for ways to save the 2015 nuclear deal. He said: "Ultimately Iran must also have the political demand to ensure that this agreement exists in the future."

(3) Continued: "Germany, UK and France are trying to convince Iran to stay in the deal. Maas will advocate for INSTEX - a payment channel set up at the start of the year to sidestep US sanctions."

Attacks on @TulsiGabbard for her good judgement is nonsensical

It’s now revealed that #OPCW suppressed expert engineers report that found the cylinders were likely not dropped from the air.

The #OPCW confirms that a leaked document on alleged gas cylinders at #Douma in #Syria is genuine. It says it is conducting 'an internal investigation' about its 'unauthorised release.' :

Obama spent political capital to avoid war with Iran, & gave us a blueprint for positive US foreign policy engagement across the world. As Trump/Bolton unravel the progress Obama made amidst escalating tensions, I thought I’d make sure we're all up to speed on how we got here 1/
Obama admin officials like @wendyrsherman, @JohnKerry, Jake Sullivan, and @brhodes skillfully negotiated the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (#JCPOA) to ensure Iran would not build a nuclear bomb 2/
Post-deal, Iran was in compliance, as were our European allies, and the world was a safer place without a nuclear Iran.

But in May 2018, Trump withdrew. Here’s an article about what that meant in the immediate aftermath of the decision 3/ vox.com/world/2018/5/8…

President #Rouhani reportedly told Reformist figures at an Iftar party: The government has no authority in foreign politics, doesn’t know where/when it is allowed or not to negotiate; cultural policies, IRIB state TV, mosques & cyberspace aren’t under govt. control. #Iran #US
#Rouhani tells Reformists -who insist on possibility of negotiations- that he opposed talks (with #US) under current circumstances. #Iran’s president tries to shed responsibility for #JCPOA defeat of his govt. & himself by telling Reformists they want sth that’s not in his power.
Reformist political activist Jalaei-pour who was at #Rouhani's Iftar party May 11 quotes the Iranian president as saying "President #Obama requested to meet with me 19 times! but I had no authority to respond to his request". #US #Iran
