US Leadership In Iranian Deal Now Dead . . .

. . . . to satisfy what I believe is a personal animus that Trump holds towards Obama.

What does pulling out of the deal *actually accomplish* when there is *no alternative presented*?? We lose only our leadership, and gain a whole host of new headaches. China and Russia will likely fill the void.

Barack Obama 05/08/18
I believe that the decision to put the JCPOA at risk without any Iranian violation of the deal is a serious mistake. Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East. We all know the dangers of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. It could embolden an already dangerous regime; threaten our friends with destruction; pose unacceptable dangers to America’s own security; and trigger an arms race in the world’s most dangerous region. If the constraints on Iran’s nuclear program under the JCPOA are lost, we could be hastening the day when we are faced with the choice between living with that threat, or going to war to prevent it.

In a dangerous world, America must be able to rely in part on strong, principled diplomacy to secure our country. We have been safer in the years since we achieved the JCPOA, thanks in part to the work of our diplomats, many members of Congress, and our allies.

Going forward, I hope that Americans continue to speak out in support of the kind of strong, principled, fact-based, and unifying leadership that can best secure our country and uphold our responsibilities around the globe.

I have to agree here .... he has made a point of dismantling all of his major initiatives; Obamacare (couldn't do it completely, b/c he couldn't get congress to pass anything... but truth be told, it does need rework), DACA, TPP, CAFE standards, conversion to clean energy...

edit...forgot the Paris climate agreement...
