US Accuses Iran of Violating Nuclear Deal Before Agreement Even Existed

The White House gives clutching at straws a whole new meaning

There’s something up with the timeline in the White House’s recent press release.

The United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency announced Monday that Iran had exceeded the cap on enriched uranium set under a 2015 international nuclear deal. The Trump White House later issued a statement condemning the move — though it mostly just played with the concept of time to insult the nuclear deal in its entirety.

President Trump has long been an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal because, as the White House said in its Monday statement, “it was a mistake … to allow Iran to enrich uranium at any level.” Then things got a little funky, with the statement reading “there is little doubt that even before the deal’s existence, Iran was violating its terms.” Of course, before there was a deal, there were no terms to violate.

Trump spent his 2016 campaign pledging to pull the U.S. out of the international deal that reduces sanctions on Iran if it remains under certain nuclear enrichment thresholds. Trump removed the U.S. from the deal last year, and Iran has spent the past several months hinting that it would exceed the limits.

Kind of like BBC live on air reporting building #7 had fallen at the World Trade Center, when Israhell attacked America at New York, 11 September 2001, while it was still standing in the background on live feed.

It was brought down, (controlled demolition), shortly afterwards.

Motto in Madhouse AIPAC/DC: Keep looking for possibilities to make war with Iran, if you cannot find possibilities? Create them.
War is what we need then there will be big profits.

The dangerous idiots.

Such blunders only prove what President of Iran Mr. Rouhani previously said. Trump administration including Trump are mentally retarded. I do not doubt it for a moment.
