In their @WashingtonPost piece, @McFaul & @milaniabbas criticize Trump exiting the #IranDeal based on it not bringing calm & peace.
washingtonpost.com/news/global-op…
We probably have to thank #Obama for signing the deal & allowing #Iran further open the gates of hell across the region.
(2)
@McFaul & @milaniabbas claim Trump's new #Iran policy is “vague.”
That is because these Iran apologists know that @SecPompeo’s logical 12 conditions will support the Iranian people & the region, while bringing the regime to its knees.
And the two writers aim to prevent that.
(3)
@McFaul & @milaniabbas base their entire piece on the old pretext of anything other than the #IranDeal will lead to war.
They, of course, don't care to raise the fact that #Iran actually used the #JCPOA to further its wars & deadly influence in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon & Iraq.

Over the course of 2 years, US violated #JCPOA, several times, while the Europeans remained silent. These 3 European countries should prove that they won’t be as dishonest & untrustworthy as they were during nuclear talks in 2004-2005. Europe needs to compensate for it:
The US has violated Resolution 2231. Europe must issue a resolution against US’s violation [of it].
Europe must guarantee it will not raise the issue of the Islamic Republic's missiles and regional affairs.

(1) In my latest, I discuss how #Europe could be able to keep #Iran in the deal, and the #JCPOA alive. progressivepost.eu/what-it-will-t…
(2) #Europe must reject notion pushed by #Washington and its allies that being pro-JCPOA means being pro-Iran. Also, #Europe must reject narrative suggesting it puts wedge in transatlantic relations by trying to safeguard JCPOA.
(3) #Iran can be kept in the deal if its economic, political and security dividend makes it conclude it’s better off with the deal. While economic dividend is part of #JCPOA terms, and the other two aren’t, they will play a role in current situation.

1/ @SecPompeo -- the hardest thing in government is often setting priorities realisticly given limited resources. That's what the #JCPOA did -- identified Iran's nuclear program as the main international concern and painstakingly developed leverage to address it.
2/ Your speech does not describe a realistic set of goals or a way to develop leverage to achieve them. It's a lightly camouflaged call for regime change that is likely to scare off potential international partners and get Iranians to rally round the flag.
3/ We do not have the leverage to force the kinds of Iranian policy changes you demand. And worse, you policy has squandered what leverage we do have to address non-nuclear issues.

#Total CEO Patrick Pouyanné: [#Trump's] announcement on #Iran clearly is pushing the price up. And I would not be surprised to see $100 per barrel in the coming months because, clearly, you will have some impacts. 
#Oil #IranDeal
csis.org/analysis/conve…
#Pouyanné: we know we are back to the situation we were before the 2016 agreement, and in the meantime #Iran has grown its exportation by 1 million barrel(s) per day. So this 1 million barrel(s) per day is in question today.
#IranDeal
#Total CEO Pouyanné: We have decided to look to that project in Iran because of the #JCPOA, which means end of secondary sanctions. As soon as the U.S. decide to put back in place the secondary sanctions, there is no possibility for us to be a major company, a global company.

1. #QAnon responds to an anon's rant at @RealAlexJones by reminding us that, when it comes to divisiveness, it's

"Time to move on.
Big week ahead!

2. #QAnon's response to the anon refers to the criticism of Alex Jones "making us all look crazy." But, in the spirit of it being "time to move on", #Q posts a link to the Alex's representation as a "performance artist." insider.foxnews.com/2017/04/17/ale…
3. To #QAnon's point, clearly, Alex Jones is a performance artist. A lot us are. Nothing wrong with that!

Let’s be honest here. Trump’s strategy on pushing back Iran has worked so far.
A.Khameni said “if Trump nixes #IranDeal I will burn it.”But he didn’t dare to withdraw from #JCPOA. Iranian regime may accept whatever Trump asks them to do. Why? 1/1
Many were arguing that IRI will use its proxies in the region to counter US and Israel but as we can see Israel is doing pretty well in defeating IRGC. This has frightened Tehran. At the same time Khamenei&Rouhani are extremely worried about the future of their regime. 1/2
Did you notice that for the first time Khamenei claimed what Rouhani said a night before him on negotiating with Europe?This is the tip of the fear in Tehran which has untied so called hardliners&Moderates for the first time in public[as they are always united behind science].1/3

Goodbye to the rest of my day. Here are all of the Russian ads.
democrats-intelligence.house.gov/facebook-ads/s…
One of the first more successful/costly ads, from 2015. Posts promising "updates" (including one about the Charleston shooting) seem to perform better so far. Also notice targeting- Baltimore, Ferguson, and surrounding.
Nothing like some good old patriotism to generate some clicks 🇺🇸

Just like with RT's cat and tsunami videos, this page was looking to draw people in before delivering more divisive content...

#ICYMI: Iranian forces fired 20 rockets at Israeli army outposts on the Golan Heights last night. In response, Israeli military set out on an extensive retaliatory attack against Iranian targets, the largest Israeli attack in Syria since 1974
No casualties reported on the Israeli side. Several targets connected to the #IRGC & Hezbollah attacked by Israel. Syrian media claims dozens of Israeli missiles were intercepted. There are reports of casualties in Syria.
More bomb shelters opened in northern Israel
The rocket barrage from Syria was directed at Israeli army outposts on the Golan Heights, like the intelligence assessment that the Iranian response will be limited so it won't lead to war. It is the 1st time Israel blames Iran directly for an attack on its territory

If you missed my long survey of #Iran hardline social media activity on the #JCPOA, make sure to check it out in @BulletinAtomic. This threat provides a quick update post-@POTUS announcement of US withdrawal. thebulletin.org/what-are-irani…
Several themes are emerging in #Iran's social social media accounts. First and foremost is: "We told you so." Hardliners are reminding the population and Rouhani government that they'd warned against trusting America.
Next is the criticism of Rouhani for still putting his faith in the Euros and believing that the #JCPOA can be preserved despite US withdrawal. As I noted in the piece, they see the EU and the US as two sides of the same coin.

Rouhani's live TV address to the nation just began. #Iran #IranDeal
Rouhani: Iran is a country that will always stay true to its commitments and America is a country that will never abide by it's promises. Our 40-year history demonstrates this fact. #Iran #IranDeal
Rouhani: America should tell us when did they abide by the #JCPOA that now they want to pull out? With the acceptation of some empty statements, they never did. #Iran #IranDeal

#BreakingNews:
@realDonaldTrump announced the #USA revokes #IranNuclearDeal.

#Iran will follow & is expected to deny any access to #IAEA inspectors to any nuclear facility in the country and re-open closed nuclear facilities.
Iran will never renounce on its missile development.
The @realDonaldTrump will sign in few moments (as he said) more sanctions on #Iran as #USA withdraw from the #IranNuclearDeal

#Iran has prepared for this day its financial and business backup in other countries but will be affected by #USA decision.

#Russia is also expected to take a position in relation to @realDonaldTrump withdrawal from the #IranNuclearDeal

Trump Tells Macron the U.S. Will Withdraw From Iran Nuclear Deal nyti.ms/2KMeG2f
Teleprompter Trump will say he's pulling out of Iran deal over nuclear fuel production after 2030 as if he has a clue. For him it's unraveling Obama's legacy. Even if it rips up alliances, tears up the country, leads to war. US has ZERO credibility w/ Trump in WH. This seals it.
The least credible president in American history calls Iran deal a "lie" and "lunacy" as a pretext to withdraw, actually violate, the #JCPOA Iran nuclear deal.

Iran (un() Deal Day THREAD: 1) @realDonaldTrump hasn't been consistent on a lot, but he has been consistent on the Iran Deal. He's been against it for years and called it a "disaster" and "insane" on the campaign. So this time he's not flip flopping.
2) Pulling out of the deal may have been on faulty analysis of what we could achieve vis-a-vis a better deal. Wonder what @CIA @ODNIgov assessed was or was not achievable and if @POTUS thought he knew better
3) Also wondering whether this approach was based on any analysis that NO deal is better than THIS deal or was this an @WhiteHouse negotiating tactic that misfired

It appears the @OrgIAC #2018IranFreedomConvention has raised some eyebrows amongst #Iran apologists.
@ishaantharoor’s recent @WashingtonPost article sheds light on how this convention is making Tehran & the pro-appeasement camp very nervous.
washingtonpost.com/news/worldview…

@ishaantharoor get’s to the point quickly:
“We have a president who is as committed to regime change as we are," said Rudy Giuliani, describing him as a “Republican Party grandee and President Trump's newly appointed lawyer.”
(3)
On the #IranNuclearDeal, @ishaantharoor claims Trump “looks poised to violate its terms by reimposing certain sanctions on #Iran...”
Reminder: Tehran has been violating the #JCPOA from day one.

Been watching the gyrations on #Iran and #JCPOA and find myself thinking like I've seen this movie, too. Some important cautions follow. #Thread 1/
After the 1991 Gulf War, the United Nations created an intrusive weapons inspection program for Iraq, known by the acronym #UNSCOM. 2/ cfr.org/backgrounder/i…
UN inspectors, complete with technological monitoring and human inspectors left little ambiguity about what Iraq had wanted to do prior to the 1991 war. 3/

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.

Syrian state TV airs Wednesday's meeting between #Syria's Bashar Assad & Ali Akbar Velayati, int'l affairs advisor to #Iran's Ali Khamenei, claiming the meeting took place today.
Arab news agencies reported this meeting yesterday, saying Velayati returned to Iran.
I thought this would be a good reminder...
