You're having a hard time imagining that the Israelis are deadly serious about stopping Iranian enrichment, when the Iranians themselves just announced they are breaking out of the treaty limits? 

 

You're kidding right?

Before long, Trump will be talking about a new "Axis of Evil" :)

Iran announces new nuclear deal violations

04.11.2019

Tehran said it has streamlined its ability to produce enriched uranium on the anniversary of the 1979 US hostage crisis. The head of Iran's nuclear program said it shows the country's "capacity and determination."

Iranian officials on Monday said the country has doubled the number of advanced centrifuges in operation in clear violation of the 2015 nuclear deal.

"Today, we are witnessing the launch of the array of 30 IR-6 centrifuges," said Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads Iran's Atomic Energy Organization.

That brings the number of IR-6 centrifuges up to 60. The centrifuges allow Iran to produce enriched uranium 10 times faster than the first generation models.

Salehi also said Iran had developed a prototype centrifuge that would allow it to develop enriched uranium up to 50 times faster. He said the development of IR-9 shows Iran's "capacity and determination."

The announcement comes as Iran commemorates the 40th anniversary of the 1979 US embassy hostage crisis that lasted 444 days.

While the US has quit it, it's technically still in force between the rest of the parties. Though Iran has demanded of them to uphold the economic rewards it was getting through it despite reinstituted US sanctions, or it would no longer feel bound by the agreement. Essentially it was holding all partners responsible for the actions of any of them.

I am not sure it is correct to describe the only official superpower as "any parthner".

The move could be interpreted as a test of the resolve of the remaining parties, with the additional benefit of increasing Iran's bargaining position in the future. It also appears to be a rational one, as the party most likely to use military force against Iran is no longer at the table.

Iran can get away with it. The worst the EU can do is not pay them off. And the US has proved it will do nothing. Fantastic deal, the best deal, far better than that worst deal.

Admittedly the US was the only party that could wreck the deal against the will of all others. Even combined they can't make up for the effect of American sanctions since those also affect their own businesses, face-saving moves like the installment of that, essentially, bartering agency for trade with Iran by the EU to the contrary.

There is some irony in the position of Israel and Israelis on Iranian progress toward nuclear weaponization, as taking matters into their own hands by attempting to drag an unwilling Donald into a military solution with them could backfire on them spectacularly if unsuccessful.

He could theoretically salvage the situation by sitting down with Rouhani at some point. It would then be time for Israel and Israelis to decide just how badly they want war.

It has occurred to me that Trump's moves make perfect sense if he doesn't really give a rat's ass whether Iran has nukes or not.
