Killing the Iran Nuclear Agreement with a Thousand Cuts

Killing the Iran Nuclear Agreement with a Thousand CutsDon’t be either fooled or relieved by President Trump’s waiving, for now, of nuclear sanctions on Iran. Trump’s effort is impeded by the fact that the JCPOA is working.  It continues, as confirmed by international inspectors, to fulfill its purpose of blocking all possible paths to a possible Iranian nuclear weapon.  Iran continues to comply with its obligations under the agreement.  As such, the JCPOA continues to serve the interests of the United States and of international security and the cause of nuclear nonproliferation.  These evidently are not interests that motivate Trump, but he cannot afford to be honest about his actual motivations.  The fact that the agreement is working prevents him from making any case for withdrawing from the agreement directly and explicitly.
