How to precipitate a collapse of the Iranian dictatorship?

Iran Focus

London, 15 May - The UK, France, and Germany all claim that they can continue with the Iran nuclear deal following Donald Trump’s withdrawal last week, but can they really?

According to Sandeep Gopalan on The Hill, past evidence suggests that would be “virtually impossible”; especially once Trump’s new sanctions are put into place.

On May 8, Trump pulled the US out of the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, otherwise known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), saying that it has failed to “prevent an Iranian nuclear bomb”.

London, 11 May - The US has imposed sanctions on six individuals and three companies that have ties to Iran’s suppressive security force, the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its Quds Force.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the sanctions targeted those responsible for funnelling millions of dollars to the IRGC, which was then used to fund its “malign activity”.

He said: “[Iran's central bank helped the IRGC to access US dollars via] a large-scale currency exchange network."

U.S. National Security Advisor on Pullout from Iran Nuclear Deal

London, 9 May - In advance of the May 12th deadline, in an address from the White House on Tuesday, Trump announced that the United States is leaving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and re-imposing all economic sanctions lifted or waived under the agreement, calling it a “decaying and rotten structure of the current agreement.” He stated that, “The Iran deal is defective at its core. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen. In just a short period of time, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapons.”

US will continue to work with allies to prevent a nuclear Iran

London, 10 May - The United States will continue to work with its allies to ensure that the Iranian Regime does not acquire a nuclear weapon even after withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear accord, according to US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Wednesday.

Before a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, Mattis said: "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. This Administration remains committed to putting the safety, interests, and well-being of our citizens first.”

Iran: Trump pulls out of the nuclear deal

Iran Focus

London, 9 May - Despite pleas from the European signatories of the deal, US President Donald Trump announced yesterday that the United States will withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. Many are saying that this will show the United States as being a bad player in future agreements because it cannot keep its word.

However, all you had to do was listen to Trump’s speech to understand why it is impossible for the United States to be part of the deal. He reminded us that Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism that fuels conflicts across the region, supports terrorist militias and proxy groups and exports missiles.
