Pompeo Threatens Iran & Lays Out Unattainable Nuclear Requirements, Speeding U.S. March Toward War
On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo used his first major policy address to threaten Iran with "the strongest sanctions in history." Pompeo presented a list of 12 "basic requirements" for a _new_ nuclear treaty with Iran, including "unqualified access" to all nuclear sites and an end to its interventions in Yemen. This comes just under two weeks after the Trump administration withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal. "Pompeo and Bolton have made the choice for the international community much, much easier," says Trita Parsi, founder and president of the National Iranian American Council. "Either you collaborate with the Trump administration and go along with these sanctions, walk away from this nuclear deal and speed up this march toward war—or you resist."
