After Israel presented strong evidence that Iran continued an underground nuclear program, in violation of the Iran nuclear deal, it has become clear that the agreement is useless, believes Wesley Pruden of The Washington Times. Iran lied about discontinuing its nuclear program, continuing it in secret. This undermines the suggestion that the deal successfully limited its nuclear capabilities, even though this was asserted by the previous administration. President Trump would be right to scrap the deal, which was flawed and only benefited Iran. Signing it was unconstitutional to begin with, as Congress’s approval was needed.
The evidence against the Iran nuclear deal presented by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu does not prove that it is inadequate, asserts Anshel Pfeffer of Haaretz. Simply put, the documents shown contain plans for a potential nuclear weapons program from years ago, but don’t prove that this is going on today. Netanyahu’s presentation, in English, was clearly aimed at guiding President Trump’s hand. The information likely wasn’t new to European nations. In fact, it was probably motivated to boost support at home, which has been waning significantly. The Iran nuclear is successfully limiting Iran’s nuclear program.
