Former Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) is worried. He sees the growing problem in Syria, and the gathering European push to war, and he wonders if President Trump will be pushed to join their drive to WWIII.
The next step in the possible chain of events leading to open war in the Middle East is the mess that Obama created with the “Iran Deal.”
President Trump has vowed to never again sign the required waiver to allow US participation in the Iran JPCOA deal to continue.
He last signed in January and is due to sign again or let the deal fall apart on May 12th. European leaders are desperately trying to convince him to remain in the deal. Trump is demanding new restrictions be unilaterally placed on Iran by the other partners, specifically in the area of ballistic missiles and Iran’s support for militias in Syria fighting ISIS and al-Qaeda. Iran has rejected the idea that it must make new concessions and points to the fact that the US has not lifted sanctions as the deal requires.
May is going to be a showdown – who will blink?
