Sit down: Iran is cheating!



  • Really. Who would have ever thought this would happen?

    VIENNA (AP) — Iran has continued to increase its stockpiles of enriched uranium and remains in violation of its deal with world powers, the United Nations’ atomic watchdog said Friday.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency reported the finding in a confidential document distributed to member countries and seen by The Associated Press.

    The agency said that as of May 20, Iran’s total stockpile of low-enriched uranium amounted to 1,571.6 kilograms (1.73 tons), up from 1,020.9 kilograms (1.1 tons) on Feb. 19.

    Iran signed the nuclear deal in 2015 with the United States, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia. Known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, it allows Iran only to keep a stockpile of 202.8 kilograms (447 pounds).

    The IAEA reported that Iran has also been continuing to enrich uranium to a purity of up to 4.5%, higher than the 3.67% allowed under the JCPOA. It is also above the pact’s limitations on heavy water.



  • What cheating? Iran announced that they have withdrawn from the JCPOA back in January 5, 2020, roughly two years after the USA withdrew from the JCPOA.



  • @Axtremus

    I don't know much about this situation, but I also thought that both sides "cancelled" the treaty? I thought that when the US said that they were stopping the treaty, Iran pretty much said the same thing.

    But anyway, not a surprise I dont think.

    I hope if I'm ever involved in a car wreck or something where a witness is needed to help sort things out, you're not the one they ask to describe things......



  • If they’re cheating than so are we.



  • I think the regime is doing everything it can to be relevant again.



  • The Trump administration is doing everything it can to not be relevant again.



  • Won't it be fun when he's re-elected!



  • Stepping back - we're out of the Iran deal this administration didn't like.

    What's in its place?

    Reminds me of Seinfeld at the car rental counter and they don't have his car: "Anyone can take reservations, the key is holding the reservation."

    The repeal is the easy part, the replace is the hard one.



  • “No deal is better than this deal”.

    Winning.

    The Trump administration will go down in history as the greatest 8 year period in American history.

    You will go down in history as just one more politically constipated Democrat who couldn't find his own ass.

    Your faith in the power of government is cute.



  • Do you think government is powerless?



  • @Larry No



  • Ah, then you agree with me...



  • @Larry No, I don't. A federal administration is not going to be the driving force in achieving the "greatest 8 year period in American history".

    It's like saying a teacher you had (even a good one) is responsible for your eventual career success and multi-millions.



  • If the federal government has no power, then why does it matter whether we have a deal with Iran or not?



  • @Larry You seem to want me to take a side between the government having zero power and near-omnipotence.

    I think my teacher analogy works ok here.

    As to Iran, Foreign policy is one of the areas where the federal government is given primacy over other actors.



  • I've never even remotely hinted at the notion that the federal government has no power. YOU are the only who brought that up, not me. And your teacher analogy is not just wrong, it's irrelevant



  • @Larry You're having difficulty following. I never said the federal government has no power.

    You think it has enough power to be the driving force behind the "greatest 8 year period in American history"

    I don't think it has that much power. Clear?

    Remember when Obama said, "You didn't build that"

    Think about that for a bit.
