The Trump administration is actively considering carrying out a military strike of an unknown magnitude against Iran. This is an outrage that threatens to engulf the Iranian people and potentially the Middle East as a whole in a disastrous military conflict.
Donald Trump's outrageous, bellicose speech May 8 announcing that the United States would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the "Iran nuclear deal") should be understood for what it is: a calculated maneuver to set the stage for a war against Iran with regime change as the goal.
The ANSWER Coalition condemns Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal – the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – and his other announcements aimed at stepping up U.S. aggression towards the country.
While there are many imperialist-imposed conditions in the agreement, what is most important is that it has set the stage for the breaking of the U.S. and UN sanctions regime, the purpose of which was to bring about the overthrow of the Iranian government.
