In light of U.S. President Donald Trump‘s announcement that the U.S. would be pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement and renewing sanctions against the Islamic Republic, we asked you, our readers, what you thought the effect of the president’s decision would be.

  • 41.9 percent said the decision would limit Iran’s ability to be a threat to the U.S. and its allies
  • 9.9 percent said the decision would make Iran more determined to develop nuclear weapons
  • 42.7 percent said both of the above
  • 5.5 percent said neither of the above

 

Here are some of your comments:

The NPT already forbids Iran nukes: this “deal” gave us nothing but Iran billions and legitimacy.

Since JCPOA does not permit inspection of military sites, it is absurd to accept that Iran is not building nuclear weapons. If today the Islamic dictators of Iran gives missiles to Houthis to fire all over the Middle East, who is to say that they will not use nuclear weapons.

Iran cannot be even more determined to develop nuclear weapons. So, the second choice above is not applicable.

Iran never stopped doing anything because of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Obama gave them billions to continue their programs in secret. Nothing will change now that Pres Trump has pulled out of the “deal.”

Iran will never stop trying to create nuclear weapons so that is not the issue. Trump is a hero for his stances and acting upon moral integrity in a pursuit for actual PEACE. The left does nothing more than placate anyone and fears any real stances that make a statement of right and wrong. The Iranian Regime is dangerous to the world in every sense and Trump is giving the Iranian people at chance at life if he can get this wicked regime overthrown.

Iran is a bully and shows its cowardice when faced with true force.

For Iran’s theocracy, getting the ultimate destructive weapon and expanding their sphere of power are a matter of policy and destiny.

You cannot appease governments like Iran. You must deal through strength. Bill Clinton and Obama appeased NK and Iran and you see the mess we are in with both countries.

President Trump made a historically correct decision but the Iranian people must also take action to get their country back.

They will try to minimize the effects by working with other nations. Trump will need to get allies to stand with us.

Appeasement only feeds aggression. I salute President Trump.

Obama has already given Iran tons of cash. Iran will use the money to pursue its dream of Shia-led Islamic world domination.

The “West” played stupid long enough, time to set the record straight and face and deal with reality and facts.

Sometimes moral courage and intellectual honesty come together to be compelling, and I think this is one of those cases. Kudos to Trump.

Not sure how much more determined because they were pretty determined to develop nuclear weapons. They can be determined as much as they want but in the end the sanctions will force them to the table or face serious uprisings from their citizens.

If we don’t stand up to genocidal regimes who have explicitly threatened us & our allies with “death” we embolden them to attack & kill us.

Trump’s decision was stupid. The U.S. signed an agreement and now backs out.

How brave President Trump is. Finally we have a leader.

President Trump has shown great courage in the face of such vitriolic opinion and political foolishness. He is a man of his word and a breath of fresh air for human rights.

We finally engage with Iran after 30+ years and try to bring them back into the international fold and stop them developing nuclear weapons and Trump does his best to force them into developing nuclear weapons again. Unbelievable.
