U.S. preparing to impose new sanctions on Iran: White House

He went as far as to say that the US withdrawal from the 2015 agreement would probably benefit Iran more than Israel and added, "If the Americans abandon the agreement, they have to prepare for alternatives, and I don't see this being done".

He added that Europe needed to reaffirm its commitments to the JCPOA in an attempt to preserve regional stability.

A lot of people seem to share Brennon's opinion, with some specifically concerned about Iran's new motivation to revive its nuclear program, which will do nothing for the stability of the Middle East.

U.S. President Donald Trump warned Iran Wednesday there would be "very severe consequences" if it starts developing nuclear weapons in the wake of the U.S. withdrawal from a 2015 worldwide pact aimed at restraining Tehran's nuclear program.

In his speech Tuesday announcing that the US would no longer honor the deal, Trump said there was "definite proof" of the Iranian regime's pursuit of nuclear weapons. The sanctions are expected to limit the Mideast country's oil output.

Objections to Trump's choice came swiftly from global allies.as the United Kingdom, France and Germany expressed "regret and concern" over the withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

"We will continue to work alongside our allies and partners to ensure that Iran can never acquire a nuclear weapon, and will work with others to address the range of Iran's malign influence", Mattis told a Senate panel. I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear programme.

I wonder how we, in the United States, would have reacted if China and Russian Federation, for example, would have plotted to overthrow a democratic American government, leaving a chaotic situation in its wake. What's on display now is the same kind of willful ignorance that led the foreign-policy establishment to conclude at the time that the deal - an agreement based heavily on trusting Iran's words and intentions - was a good one.

Any new USA sanctions will also raise the cost of trade for Iran and are expected to further deter Western companies from investing, giving hardliners an excuse to cement their grip on power by making Rouhani a scapegoat for hardship. Europe has promised to maintain the agreement and shield major companies from USA sanctions, but these efforts are unlikely to succeed given the power of the sanctions.

Niger ambush resulted from multiple failures, Pentagon says
Soon after leaving Tongo Tongo, about 120 miles north of Niger's capital, they were ambushed by Islamic State-linked militants. Investigators said they were unable to determine whether the IS-linked fighters got any help from villagers in Tongo Togo.

"The United States will continue to support robust implementation of IAEA inspections in Iran to the full extent of the IAEA's authority", an official at the U.S. mission to the IAEA in Vienna told dpa.

Many analysts in Europe said they are dismayed by Trump's decision, which they said has unnecessarily put global security at risk and raised the prospect of a unsafe confrontation with Iran.

But it's a mistake to apply rational analysis to Trump's action, because this was an emotional decision, not a rational one.

The only rational explanation of Trump's actions - if that is not an oxymoron - is that the JCPOA was a major foreign policy achievement of his predecessor, Barack Obama.

The president maintained that the JCPOA, as it stands, was not sufficient to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon - despite confirmation from his own defense secretary that the nation was abiding by the JCPOA guidelines.

Despite his long-running mistrust of the US, Khamenei supported the deal when it was signed, even saying it could be the basis for further negotiations. The US has given European companies six months to wind up their businesses in Iran or face sanctions.

President Donald Trump's decision will likely most hurt aircraft makers, oil companies and auto manufacturers.

USA officials said certain waivers can be negotiated, but they did not say what goods or countries might qualify.
