THREAD: So my thoughts on the #IranDeal pullout by Trump. I tweet this as someone who wrote the first history and analysis of Iran's nuclear programme in English from the 1950s to the present day.

Top Line = It was a cretinous decision.
2/ The first questions with any decision like are 1. What does it achieve? 2. Why was it taken? 3. What does it mean? The answer to the first question is depressingly simple: nothing positive. In fact, pretty much everything is negative. Why? Several reasons.
3/ 1. US credibility is weakened: look at Trump’s language he criticises the #IranDeal in itself. He makes no mention of what would be a real cause to withdraw: Iran violating it. He cannot say that because it hasn’t. Despite the Israeli documents of last week.

The #President exhibited a sterling example of international leadership by withdrawing from the broken #IranNuclearDeal. Its the right decision for our safety & the safety of the world, to remove ourself from a deal that leads to a fully nuclear #Iran. #IranDealWithdrawl
World community gnashed their teeth + grumbled when Mr. #Trump moved our #embassy from #TelAviv to #Jerusalem. Now, they're getting behind that decision. I think it will be no different here. #Europe will follow @realDonaldTrump lead on #IranNuclearDeal. #IranDealWithdrawl
There is a 90 day "cooling-off" period before #sanctions are re-imposed on #Iran that will allow #Europe to come back to the negotiating table with us, which will allow them time to save face. #IranDealWithdrawl #IranNuclearDeal #IranDeal

When @JZarif says, "#Iran never raced towards a bomb, nor will it race towards a bomb," rest assured it is the exact opposite.
We will realize how Tehran sought nuclear arms for decades. For a country sitting on an ocean of oil & gas, a "peaceful" nuclear program is meaningless.
A very telling cartoon about #NorthKorea & #Iran, as Pyongyang signals indications to set aside its nuclear weapons/ballistic missile program. This is leaving Tehran as now sole target of the international community's soon-to-come pressures.
For those who describe #Iran's FM @JZarif as a "moderate" or "reformist"

"We will exit the NPT. / We will launch advanced enrichment," he says in response to Trump's May 12th #IranDeal deadline.
