The 3 years leading to the 2018 departure from the deal, you are going to tell me that Iran was playing nice in the region? The deal gave billions to a terrorist regime that funded horrific terrorism in Yemen and Syria, funded the takeover of Lebanon by Hezbollah, and funding terrorism against Israel by Hamas and at the same time developing long range ballistic missiles.
Even if true - and your name-calling of Iran does not add to your credibility - it has nothing to do with the J.P.O.A. The agreement was specifically limited to Iran's production of weapons-grade nuclear material, and it has been confirmed time and time again that they were abiding by that agreement.
That was the deal, the Obama/Biden foreign policy was one of the most destructive and failed policies in generations. Even worse than GWB Iraq.
Let's make it clear: that is your opinion,
not necessarily supported by the facts. In fact, it was GWB's foray into Iraq that eliminated the :check" against Iran that Saddam Hussein had provided in the region for decades; it was his untimely departure, and the chaos that the Bush-Cheney-neo-con left behind in Iraq, that allowed Iran to become the dominant power in that part of the world.
Lets judge a policy on its results not on its intention as Milton Friedman said. How many deaths occurred on the period 2015-2018 compared to 2018-2020. Leave that as a homework to find out what worked best in the end.
So... how many of those deaths were caused by Iran? Do you have a number? Or can you agree that they were a result of our own misguided demolition of Iraqui stability, and the sectarian and tribal wars that followed?
You can't only attribute numbers to the administration in office at the time; you have to be able to think linearly, and understand what brought on that disaster. "Dogma" is not the same as "critical thinking". In fact, it is just the opposite.
‘Carnage and terror like no other’...I see. Partisan blinders are a helluva thing.
Perhaps you should read a couple books on the region covering the 1920s through 1980s before offering more wisdom on the subject.
Facts are stubborn things. It is too bad some people avoid them like the plague.
