There's nothing for Russia to gain by involving in this and everything to win by letting USA and Iran bleed each other (one more than the other)
There would be enormous irony in Russia supporting Iran to help it hurt the US more than it otherwise could... a sort of mirror of Iranian support for anti soviet forces in Afghanistan in the 1980s, but more morally sound.
Iran states it is formally pulling out of the nuclear deal.
Not a surprise move at all. This is what happens when you push and push someone.
Which essentially means they are going to start making nuclear weapons... I bet the US feels like a winner now.
They left the door open for keeping the treaty if sanction are softed.
They remain reasonable, while the US and the EU do not.
It was a mistake for Iran to impose any sort of delay on its nuclear program.
I disagree, it made sense for them to sign that agreement... the economic progress they made was useful, but now that it is gone it makes no sense for them to atrophy economically AND to not have nukes... good economy or nukes or good economy and nukes are both acceptable alternatives, but bad economy and no nukes to defend yourself with is the worst situation for Iran and one they wont be able to accept.
But we will NEVER accept a nuclear armed Iran.
You accept a nuclear armed Pakistan and a nuclear armed Israel... what difference will a nuclear armed Iran mean?
Iran is led by religious nuts. If you believe we allow Iran nuclear weapons, you must be crazy.
Your first point... heard of a guy named VP Mike Pence? and your second... you must be crazy to think you have a choice... the chance of France doing to Iran what you did to Libya is tiny...
France is a christian, catholic nation. Iran hates christians. Nothing would be safe.
It is the Saudis and ISIS that they support that hate christians... this Iranian guy the Americans murdered was thanked by christians in Syria for saving them from ISIS... christians in Iran are safer than christians living in Israel...
If iran really wanted the nuk, they would have had it today. Even the north korean with a pathetic industry have them.
They don't want them, but with the US and the Europeans always pushing their buttons like this they realise they need them.
Careful what you wish for...
France will not accept a nuclear armed iran. Never.
France does not accept Crimea as part of Russia... but guess what...
This guy is a pretty good commentator. How about his theory?
Interesting... it would also explains trumps rhetoric about this not starting a war but preventing a war... he clearly doesn't want this to start a war.
He is not a war hawk like Clinton and Oblama... a war with anyone is an enormous backtrack on his election promises of getting the US out of unnecessary wars and bringing the soldiers home... and fighting a war against Iran during an election cycle... I doubt he would have the brains and skill to do either on its own let alone both at the same time...
These Media Posts will serve as notification to the United States Congress that should Iran strike any U.S. person or target, the United States will quickly & fully strike back, & perhaps in a disproportionate manner. Such legal notice is not required, but is given nevertheless!
Wow, he is desperate for them to not do anything... I would say call his bluff... how often has he flip flopped when the reality of what he previously said sinks in and people realise it was crap.
Ooh, I misspoke... what I meant to say was that

Ohh I feel better now that I have cleared that up properly... now I am going to have a perfect phone call with someone...
France has an enormous network in uran. Half their elite studies in paris. The only constant in iranuan history is paris exile. When shah ruled, ayatollah was in paris. When ayatollah came back, shah family went paris.
Could say the same about Britain and Poland... does London control Poland now?
If France cared that much they should have kept their hands of the nuclear deal, which they really didn't and offered nothing but excuses.
Excellent point... if France and Europe for that matter think a nuclear weapon free Iran is an important thing then they should have manned up and implemented their part of the deal... instead they fail to hold up their end of the deal yet demand Iran holds its end of the bargain...
The country itself had no growing potential.
With health and education paid for it had more growth potential than the US currently does, who knows what could have happened there, but the west could not afford for it to succeed because the only progress and development is to become more like the west and nothing else can be accepted... which is where the hate for Cuba and North Korea and Russia and China and indeed India and Iran comes from... alternative civilisations that don't follow the western model...
Correct Libya before the attacks.
Free Education, Free Education in every university of the world, Free Medical care. In a lot of case no taxes
If u marry, government buys u free apartment or pays u 64k$

Gas cheaper than water gallon — 0,14 $
Free electricity, housing, subsidized food and cars, paid living allowance if u study abroad, paid hospital bill if you get treatment outside the country.
There were other perks that the gov would provide and even give you money for doing.
Iso is displaying his ignorance and lack of understanding.
Wow... what a shithole... no wonder the west had to destroy it... imagine if that model spread... remember all this wealth should be making one or two families in the US or Europe super wealthy... instead helping an entire country to make things better for all the Libyan people... the bastards... no wonder the free and open western press owned by a couple of very very rich western families like to demonise such countries and their dictator...
