GOP Senators Urge Trump Administration to Say Iran Is Not Complying With Nuclear Deal

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – A lobbying battle between critics and supporters of the Iran nuclear deal is becoming more heated, days before the Trump administration is due to give Congress a periodic verdict on Iran’s compliance and whether U.S.

national security interests are being served.

Friday marks the second anniversary of the day the marathon nuclear negotiations in Europe delivered the accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Three days later comes the deadline for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to tell Congress whether Iran is complying, and whether the suspension of sanctions under the deal is vital to U.S. national security.

Among those weighing in on either side of the argument are a quartet of leading Republican senators and a group of retired senior rank military officers.

The former – Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), David Perdue (Ga.), Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) – urged Tillerson this week not to certify that Iran is in compliance with its JCPOA obligations. Non-certification would open the door for a rapid restoration of sanctions against Tehran.

In a letter they listed several alleged Iranian violations, including exceeding JCPOA-imposed limits on heavy water stocks, illicit attempts to procure nuclear technology, and refusal to admit international inspectors to military facilities.

"Neither the Prophet nor his followers shall be bound by a treaty with an infidel." That is straight out of the Qur'an... what part don't you understand?

Now who would have ever expected this rogue nation & dictator to not comply with any agreement? Besides obama & kerry that is. Hard to believe that china, the country that has propped n korea up for years, would want n korea to start a war which would harm china's economy which is dependent upon selling their inferior products to support their own communist regime.

Of course they are not complying. They NEVER do! Of course they are not telling the truth. They lie. That's what they do. Of course John Kerry will be remembered as our Neville Chamberlain, simply a big gooney skidmark in American history!

There is no such thing as a contract with an Islamic state since ‘taqiyya’ (an approved form of lying and deception to gain advantage over their 'infidel' opponent) allows leaders to break any contract at any time as long as they claim or feel Allah benefits.
So Islamic's hold infidels to the contract until it is their turn to pay-up and then the deal is over.
