Trump’s Iran Stance Reminds Run-Up to Iraq War

Mohamed ElBaradei, a former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, likened the decertification of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal by US President Donald Trump to the prelude to the 2003 US invasion of Iraq.
ElBaradei, who said in the spring of 2003 that the case made by the administration of former US president, George W. Bush, for going to war against Iraq was bogus, wrote in a tweet, “Trump ignoring IAEA inspection findings [on] Iran’s compliance with nuclear deal brings to mind run-up to Iraq war. Will we ever learn?” Common Dreams reported on Saturday.
In a speech on Friday announcing that the US would not certify that Tehran is complying with the deal, Trump called on the US Congress to reconsider the agreement.
This is while the current chief of the UN atomic watchdog, Yukiya Amano, reiterated on Friday that Iran was under the world’s “most robust nuclear verification regime”, adding that “nuclear-related commitments undertaken by Iran under the JCPOA are being implemented.”
JCPOA stands for the official name of the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
