Iran Paving Way to Abandon Nuclear Deal, Fortify Missile Program

Iran has taken steps in recent days to file what it claims are 18 instances in which America violated the landmark nuclear agreement, a move that could set the stage for Tehran to abandon the deal and lay blame on the Trump administration, according to regional reports and sources familiar with the matter.

On the heels of an effort by the Trump administration to tighten the nuclear accord while still upholding U.S. commitments under it, the Iranian Foreign Ministry has submitted to European Union leaders a plethora of information recounting what it claims are 18 separate violations of the deal by the United States, according to Iran's state-controlled media.

The latest move is said to be part of an effort by Iran to abandon the nuclear agreement and save face by blaming the United States for its decision, according to national security insiders closely tracking the situation.

As the Trump administration makes moves to sanction Iran for its ballistic missile program and regional support of terrorism, Iran is increasingly frustrated with the United States' aggressive stance, which is being spearheaded by President Donald Trump and his congressional allies.

Iran's foreign ministry submitted a report to the country's Parliament outlining what it claims are at least 18 instances of the United States violating the agreement. The accusations come just days after Trump decertified Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal.

I'd like to know just how Iran expects to pay for all of this.

"The Obama administration on Wednesday paid $490 million in cash assets to Iran and will have released a total of $11.9 billion to the Islamic Republic by the time nuclear talks are scheduled to end in June, according to figures provided by the State Department."

Tell them this.
Develop all you want.
You cannot destroy the USA even if you launched every missile you have.
We, however, we will kill EVERY SINGLE PERSON in your country and turn it into an uninhabitable area for centuries.
Since we can't tell which missile you fire is a real one and can't know it's trajectory until it's too late, we will shoot down any missile.
If you fight back, we turn back the clock in your country by a million years.
Any one else want to get involved? BIG mistake.
NO ONE on the planet can stand up to us and be successful (as in, still be living tomorrow).
Every day, they get stronger. Previously we said that was just fine.
Now look where we are. I'm talking to the five presidents who can't stop telling us how great they were. Iran and North Korea think so, too.
Keep cheering.
