Is Iran Complying or Not? America Deserves to Know the Truth

As part of President Barack Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran, the White House must certify to Congress every 90 days that our Islamic friends on the other side of the world are in compliance with the major terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. If no such certification is made, the decision is kicked to Congress, who must then decide if it is appropriate to “snap back” sanctions that were lifted as part of the deal’s terms.

So far, despite reports of reluctance on Trump’s part, the White House has twice certified that compliance. But Trump’s hostility towards signing the certification has many wondering if Iran really is living up to the terms of the deal. Experts opposed to the agreement say they aren’t. Others insist that their violations are overblown and that the basic framework of the agreement remains in place.

What is the truth?

Here’s the sticking point. There are two levels of “noncompliance.” There is what we might call “spiritual noncompliance,” which are those actions on Iran’s part that violate the “spirit” of the deal. There is no question at all that Iran is guilty of this. In their continued sponsorship of terrorism, their continued pursuit of ballistic missiles, and their ongoing threats of destruction towards Israel and the United States, they have done everything possible to retain their rogue global status without technically destroying the deal.

The other level of noncompliance is, or would be, a “material breach.” This would mean that Iran has violated one of the specific terms of the deal in order to benefit their nuclear program, decrease the amount of time it would take them to achieve a nuclear weapon, or otherwise undermine the entire point of the agreement. By signing certification notices, President Trump is affirming that while Iran may be guilty of the first level of noncompliance, they have not yet committed a material breach of the deal.

Unfortunately, this largely comes down to a judgement call on the part of the administration. We know already that Iran has violated several precepts of the deal. They have gone over their allotted amount of heavy water, they are running more advanced centrifuges than is prescribed in the deal, and they have refused inspectors access to their military sites. Trump would arguably be within his rights to de-certify the deal based on these violations alone.

Even if you think those violations are not enough to warrant scrapping the agreement, the fact remains that we don’t know the full extent of Iran’s activities. They have been hidden in classified reports, and thus far those reports have not been released or leaked to the public. So Americans are forced to simply trust that things aren’t actually worse than public reporting suggests.

And given Iran’s reputation, we can’t put a lot of faith in that.

  5. Sounds like were on the same road that brought us to where we are with NK.

    • We have to be more careful with NK due to the proximity of SK, and the complexity of their relationship with China. We could have bargained more harshly with Iran, but we had lousy negotiators and a President whose foreign policy record was abysmal.

      • Have China eliminate Kim.

        • I would be shocked if we haven’t asked on multiple occasions. China has always been opposed to most regime change tactics around the world. Probably due to paranoia that we would want to do the same to them. In the past that paranoia would not have been unfounded .

      • We had a president (Obama) who had less respect for his duty, his obligations, his oath and the best interest of this nation and the American people than he did for his own agenda!
        America will spend the next fifty years repairing the damage Obama did to our economy, our society, our justice system, our racial relations and our American values.

  7. i agree with Larry Brule on this.

  8. We need to be over prepared, and even then we may not have sufficient weapons to defend ourselves from our enemies. You see , they lie, they spy, and they want us to die. They will say anything, and do anything, to destroy us!

  9. Anyone watch The ENNIMIES….. the show that praised Donald Trump, God, and our morally uupright country? Were you impressed with their patriotism? They sure do love us….and our President….don’t they?

  10. really here look at this proof that will answer any questions

    http://www.americanpatriotdaily.com/featured/secret-behind-north-koreas-nuclear-bombs/

    so look at this link ..i keep saying that if we get a nuke bomb from north korea or Iran we should chain obama up to a tree or anything that will keep him there at ground zero so that would be a thank you from the U.S.A

    here read this too & see
    http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/01/10/obama-approved-giving-iran-116-metric-tons-of-uranium-as-a-thank-you-gift/ ….. so OUR THANK YOU CAN BE WE TIE HIM & LET HIM BE MADE OF DUST !!!

  11. Did any sane person believe for one minute that Iran would comply? A moot question.

  12. Obamas legacy of throwing America under the bus continues he had Zero authority to do what he did and the cowards ignored him what a shame

  13. Islam/Muslim is the Devils Army…the enemy of mankind in general…and should be treated accordingly!

  14. if you believe Iran Or No Korea (or any other communist country) is complying with any agreement or treaty, you must be smokin funny looking cigarettes !!
    I remember all too well the Christmas Truce, TET 68 Truce (cease fire truce). The only thing it did for the GI was the enemy got to draw first blood before we could SHOOT back!
    I’d like to send politicians on the ‘FRONT LINE” and see how long before the RULES of ENGAGEMENT change!!

  15. This so called agreement is unconstitutional and should be shown to the shredder. Obama was extra slippery when he refused to call this a treaty, knowing full well that there was zero chance that it would have been ratified by the Senate.

    • You could always tell when Obama lied—-every time he opened his mouth. What a worthless President he will go down in History as:(:(:(

  16. Let’s make it clear. Islam is not our friends. Never was and never will be. Quietly Iran is working behind the scenes to deceive America. You can count on it.

  17. As soon as these nut jobs get nuclear ability to launch and reach the US they will launch. But how do we stop it short of an all out nuclear war? That is the question.

    • Have you heard the old term—“If You Snooze, You Loose”—???? If Iran will not stay on point, to what they agreed to do, why is America, snoozing right now? That puts the entire Country, the USA, in danger. Either we put our foot down, or call off the deal—-just my opinion.

      • The US should have never done a deal with the enemy anyway. Never give the enemy a working agenda. These ideologically perverted people will unleash war on us as soon as they have the tech to do so. Keep plenty of ammo and guns handy they will be coming for us on our soil

    • That is spot on! They all think they are going to Paradise if they die in jihad and this would be the ultimate jihad !

  18. Iran is in full compliance according to every international observer organization. Onlt the extreme right (alt-right) sources say anything different. Are you trying to start a war so Halliburton can make more $$$$$$ on no bid contracts?

  19. People, people… if we’re to be honest with ourselves, WE THE PEOPLE have sat on our dead asses and ushered in our own demise. I mean, what other country would sit back and allow a couple of faggots to take over our country? Not just once, BUT TWICE! 😣

  20. Smart money says “Are you kidding?” Per Dr Phil, “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.” With Presidents like Carter, Clinton, & Obama, what do we expect? Think maybe there’s a deal in the works between the mullahs & “rocket boy?”

  21. This is old news!! Their refusal to allow inspectors is th EXACT reason they had sanctions in the first place!! Only complete RETARDS believed Iran would change!! Odummy and Kerry were the Complete Retards!!!

    • Jackson Brannon—-if you think Kerry is bad now, you should have served on Swift Boats with him in Vietnam, like I did. What a piece of crap. He put himself in for three “combat action awards” that HE inflicted on himself:(:(:( THEN, he was shipped back to the States & became a politician as a “War Hero”:)
      He is the “black eye” of the entire Vietnam War. Hard yo believe he is still alive:(

  22. thanx to the GREAT TRAITOR barack OSSAMA , they will now be THE NEW NORTH KOREA,, ONE MORE PIECE OF TREASON FOR THE CRIME SPREE CALLED THE OSSAMA ADMINISTRATION !!!!!!!!!

  23. Screw Iran. They cheat. They are cheating. Obama was an idiot. Kerry was an idiot. The Democrats are idiots!

  24. What about the inspection protocols that were being questioned even when the deal went through? There were numerous reports (then) that Iran would be allowed a large time frame “advance notice” of any “surprise” inspections….making the validity of any such inspections suspect. Why aren’t any of these points brought up?….certainly they would be part of a “bad”, one-sided deal…..and would tell us nothing of the true timeline of Iran getting weopon-grade nuclear capability. Today’s new reports say NOTHING of this important aspect.

  25. Not worth thinking they did. A leopard does not change it’s spots!

  26. Is there any reason to trust Iran anyway? At what time in history can anyone point out any honest and reliable actions or cooperation with Iran and this nation?

    Consider the following quotes;
    – – “they have done everything possible to retain their rogue global status without technically destroying the deal..” and,
    – “The other level of noncompliance is, or would be, a “material breach.” This
    would mean that Iran has violated one of the specific terms of the deal in
    order to benefit their nuclear program, decrease the amount of time it would
    take them to achieve a nuclear weapon, or otherwise undermine the entire point
    of the agreement. By signing certification notices.. “
    Our agreement with Iran was made with Obama as our president. He swore by the alleged achievement of this agreement – – but then we heard him lie to the American people over and over through out his eight years in office. He is a master speaker and with a $2.2 billion dollar “marketing Budget” to sell his agenda, he had the medias attention who was ready to say anything he (Obama) wanted the public to hear.
    – – – First off I would ask; Although I do not recall how much Money Obama gave (back as alleged) to Iran, I would wonder why we did not give that money to China to help reduce our debt to them?
    – I would also ask if there is any doubt that Iran may be keeping some of their promises to not build/develop nuclear weapons – BUT – I would suggest maybe Iran is sending a lot of the Obama Treasure to North Korea along with their information and guidance on building the nuclear weapons. Seems to me the timing fits and with an alliance between Iran and North Korea would be consistent with the past of both countries.
    – And, just as Obama’s Hysterically absurd Red Line (a world wide joke) is Congress ignoring the fact Iran is not keeping its part of the deal?

    I believe our president has shown he is ready and this country is capable, of carrying out necessary actions to ensure Iran is living up to their part of the deal – and I believe (if they are not already doing so) our intelligence people need to be watching any relationships between Iran and North Korea!

  27. “Is Iran Complying or Not?” Is this some sort of “trick question?” America’s (non)policy, or policy of appeasement, over the past 30-40 years is exactly as ole Forest opined: “Stupid is as Stupid does!”

  28. surely this question is in jest !!!
    If you believe that iran is living up to its promises/ treaties whatever, I have a bridge to sell you!

  29. With the deal Obama made with Iran we will never know until they use their nukes.

    • When is “somebody” going to “finally investigate” Obama & his criminal actions while POTUS????? Do the DEM’s really think anyone will forget???? If he doesn’t have to pay a price, he will be allowed to think he can just do it again:(:(:(:(:( Great example of the USA going down the tubes:(

  30. when is the death to iran rally , they seem to have a death to America rally on tv about once a week

  31. lets develop our own resources and tell the sand rats to drink theirs , if they attack destroy them totally , and nobody whose left will buy radioactive oil

  32. Iran has never stooped to abide by any agreement since the Shah of Iran left Iran last century. Why would anyone think that things were all of a sudden going to be any different?

  33. My off hand guess, which I cannot verify either way is NO, they aren’t.
