White House unveils ‘new strategy’ for Iran ahead of nuclear deal announcement

White House unveils ‘new strategy’ for Iran ahead of nuclear deal announcement, Washington ExaminerSarah Westwood, October 13, 2017

Trump is expected to apply particular pressure to the IRGC, which has been accused of human rights abuses. The IRGC’s activities, like many other Iranian offenses, did not fall under the provisions laid out by the Obama administration in the nuclear agreement.

**********************************

The Trump administration announced a “new strategy” for dealing with Iran that involves cracking down on aggressions that fall outside of the “myopic” nuclear agreement, the White House said Friday ahead of Trump’s announcement of his plan for the deal.

That strategy will focus on Iran’s ballistic missile testing, destabilizing activities throughout the region in countries like Yemen and Syria, and the violence of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, an arm of the Iranian military, the administration said.

“The Trump administration’s Iran policy will address the totality of these threats from and malign activities by the Government of Iran and will seek to bring about a change in the Iranian’s regime’s behavior,” the White House said Friday.

The plan runs the risk of antagonizing Iran to the point at which it could decide to declare the nuclear agreement has been violated. But Trump said Iran’s destabilizing activities need to be checked.

“It is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that Iran’s government end its pursuit of death and destruction,” Trump said in a statement announcing the plan.

Trump is expected to apply particular pressure to the IRGC, which has been accused of human rights abuses. The IRGC’s activities, like many other Iranian offenses, did not fall under the provisions laid out by the Obama administration in the nuclear agreement.

“We will work to deny the Iranian regime — and especially the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) — funding for its malign activities, and oppose IRGC activities that extort the wealth of the Iranian people,” the White House said. “We will rally the international community to condemn the IRGC’s gross violations of human rights and its unjust detention of American citizens and other foreigners on specious charges.”

“Most importantly, we will deny the Iranian regime all paths to a nuclear weapon,” it added.

Trump is expected to decline to certify the Iran nuclear deal during a speech on Friday, although he is not expected to scrap the deal altogether.

The president has previously described the agreement as an “embarrassment” to the U.S. and the “worst deal ever negotiated.”

    They will have their nukes !

    Only a full blown attack on their installation will stop them, nothing else , that is the reality not a nice one one but the only one .
    They will ride out the huff and puff of Trump , can take at max 7 1/2 years .
    They have the time and we have the clocks .

      I agree !
      The US Government knows well that the only Solution to the problems caused by the iranian nazi – roulers is to wipe these sick minds off the face of the World!

      I guess that the US gov is footdragging – hoping that
      A) Israel + Iran will Finish each other Off, ridding the USA From Booth of them – or
      B) Israel will destroy Iran in self Defense, Getting all the blame from the world for defending itself (again…) – then Israel will be attacked/destroyed by the United Nothing (UN) – jew haters…

      Sorry folks, it wont happen any of these ways…

      But this will happen :
      The only God – the God of Israel will do as HE said and destroy those nations (Iran etc) who want to destroy Israel. Those nations who forsake Israel (USA, EU ) will be forsaken by God and vanish…..

      But Israel is kept in the hands of her God !
