Much fuss has been made about President Trump pulling the United States out of the United Nations Iranian nuclear deal and slapping new sanctions on the Middle Eastern nation. Leftists have been beside themselves with claims that the President has jeopardized peace and Iran will now break their part of the bargain.
Sadly, Iran was already breaking the agreement before President Trump was even elected. His predecessor unilaterally agreed to the deal without giving Capitol Hill a say in the matter since it technically wasn’t a treaty. But it was during the Obama administration Iran continued testing missiles the agreement specifically called for them not to test.
Here’s what the agreement says about ballistic missiles:
“Iran is called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology, until the date eight years after the JCPOA Adoption Day or until the date on which the IAEA submits a report confirming the Broader Conclusion, whichever is earlier.”
How do we know Iran broke their end of the bargain? Is there new information from a defector? Did the CIA release details of an operation proving what they did? Has secret footage of a launch emerged that NSA analysts determined to be a ballistic missile capable of delivering nuclear weapons? Nope. None of the above.
Instead, Iran boasted about their 2015 tests on national television. In fact, they used the opportunity to detail just how far their ballistic missiles can go and what major countries they can reach.
The report translation claims:
“In 2015, Iran tested for the first time its long-range ballistic missile, which can be controlled and guided until it hits the target. The Emad Missile has a range of 2,500 km and can easily hit targets in Russia, Eastern Europe, western China, north-eastern Africa, and large parts of India.”
You won’t hear about this on mainstream media because it goes against the narrative that Iran’s aggression is President Trump’s fault. They won’t tell you Iran was already breaking the deal during President Obama’s era because he is always blameless.
