White House Intends Breaching Iran Nuclear Deal
by Stephen Lendman
Years of Iranian patience, compromise and good faith may end up all for naught. Washington has a long, odious history of flouting agreements.
Native Americans understand best of all. Broken promises and betrayal defined every treaty agreed to. Successive US governments pledged one thing and did another. 
They vowed peace and waged war, slaughtered indigenous people, stole their lands and resources, herded them onto reservations in violation of terms reached, treated them like subhumans.
Iranians aren’t fools. After 36 years of unrelenting US hostility, they’re under no illusions about Washington turning a new leaf. A ravaged Middle East alone reveals its intent to continue business as usual – aiming to replace all independent governments with US controlled ones, Tehran the number one target.
Lengthy negotiations leading to the Iran nuclear deal (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – JCPOA) belied common knowledge of its peaceful operations, fully complying with Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) provisions – with no military component or evidence of an intention to have one.
Believing Washington intends abiding by JCPOA terms requires a giant leap of faith. US bipartisan policymakers can’t be trusted – not earlier, for sure not now with neocons setting the agenda on major geopolitical issues.
On December 30, the Wall Street Journal headlined “Obama Administration Preparing Fresh Iran Sanctions, saying the US Treasury Department intends targeting “nearly a dozen companies and individuals in Iran, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates” for allegedly aiding Iran’s legal ballistic missile program – unrelated to the nuclear deal.
Such action, if implemented, is a blatant JCPOA breach. Legitimate Iranian missile development has nothing to do with nuclear deal terms. 
US Treasury officials claiming otherwise are willfully lying. When it comes to Iran, Washington systematically turns truth on its head – irresponsibly accusing the Islamic Republic of involvement in saber-rattling, regional destabilization and terrorism, saber-rattling, along with other nonexistent unlawful activities.
Guilt by accusation suffices, no independently verifiable evidence needed. Israeli Lobby policy on Iran is ferociously hardline – congressional members pressured to substitute toughness for rapprochement.
Normalized US/Iranian relations remain nowhere in sight, hostility continuing, Washington inventing reasons to punish the Islamic Republic unjustly, refusing to treat it like other members of the world community.
In response to Washington’s new sanctions threat, Iranian President Hassan Rohani ordered accelerated development of the nation’s missile capability – citing “hostile (US) policies and illegal and illegitimate meddling against Iran’s right to develop defensive power.”
“As the United States seems to plan to include the names of new individuals and firms in its previous list of cruel sanctions in line with its hostile policies and illegitimate and illegal meddling in the Islamic Republic of Iran’s right to reinvigorate its defense…
