Iran exports bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East

Iran exports bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East

President Donald Trump delivered a foreboding message, telling reporters as he posed for photos with senior military leaders that this might be "the calm before the storm".

Since the Trump came into power, he desperately wants to remove the nuclear pact and get rid of the limits it imposes on the USA ability to exert more hostile policies against Iran.

Trump has repeatedly lambasted the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - one of the most important foreign policy legacies of his predecessor, Barack Obama - most recently at the United Nations general assembly last month.

And Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei last month threatened harsh action if the U.S. makes a "wrong move" on the nuclear accord.

In a speech planned for Thursday, October 12, Trump will announce that the deal, which provides Iran with sanctions relief in exchange for limits to its nuclear program, is no longer in the best interest of the United States.

Earlier, Trump issued a national security memorandum aimed at integration, sharing and use of national security threat actor information to protect Americans.

According to press reports, Trump seems inclined not to certify Iran's compliance with the agreement, although he could leave that decision in the hands of Congress.

If Trump, who has called the accord "the worst deal ever negotiated", does not recertify it by October 16, Congress has 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions suspended under the accord. "I know the government bureaucracy is slow, but I am depending on you to overcome the obstacles of bureaucracy", Trump said.

Iran has warned that the deal is not renegotiable - but added that if the other global signatories remain on board it could be salvaged.

US President Donald Trump is set to announce that the landmark Iranian nuclear deal signed in 2015 does not serve US national interests and that he will decertify but not withdraw from the accord. Could be the calm before the storm.

Trump is likely to announce his plans in a speech next week in which he will say the agreement was not in USA national interest, the officials said.

"Maybe it's the calm before the storm", Trump replied.

In a speech last month at the United Nations, Trump warned that the United States would "totally destroy" North Korea if needed to defend itself or US allies.
