Israeli PM Praises Pompeo's Iran Speech as 'Policy That Can Guarantee Security'

World War 3 USA Backs Iran in to a Corner

The secretary of state's remarks came weeks after Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, an agreement struck in 2015 between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, plus Germany, that was meant to block the Iranian government's path to a nuclear weapon.

He also demanded Iran release all United States citizens imprisoned on a variety of charges, including espionage.

Mike Pompeo addressed the Heritage Foundation with a speech regarding new United States policy towards Iran after Washington withdrew from JCPOA.

U.S. sanctions lifted after the 2015 deal would be re-imposed, he said, and those and new measures would together constitute "unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime". "Who are you to decide for the world?" he told the Iranian media. However, the Pentagon said it is ready to take all necessary steps to confront Iranian behaviour in the region and was assessing whether that could include new actions or doubling down on current ones. "But today, a government is in office in the United States that returned their country fifteen years back overnight and is repeating the same words of 2003 and 2004", he said. "Countries have their independence", he added. According to him, they will be the "strongest in history".

The deal was also signed by Britain, China, France, Germany and Russian Federation. However, most importantly, the Obama team wanted to stop Iran from being able to build a nuclear weapon in weeks, which is exactly what the nuclear deal did, although that outcome is now uncertain. "We couldn't reach an agreement there", Pompeo said of his efforts.

The re-establishment of American sanctions will force European companies to choose between investing in Iran or trading with the US. The Islamic Republic "will never again have carte blanche to dominate the Middle East".

"We are not asking anything other than that Iranian behavior be consistent with global norms", Pompeo said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demonstrated as much with 100,000 hidden Iranian documents that Israel found. Critics yawn, but some of those showed Iranian determination to roll ahead with its weaponizing ambition, if at a slower pace.

"The US policy is correct. The regime reaps a harvest of suffering and death in the Middle East at the expense of its people". "We call on all countries to follow America's lead here", Netanyahu said at a Foreign Ministry reception in honor of Paraguay's embassy move to Jerusalem. The closest he came to that was saying, "We hope, indeed we expect, that the Iranian regime will come to its senses and support - not suppress - the aspirations of its own citizens".

"We want to hear their concerns".

In return, sanctions imposed by the UN, US and European Union that had crippled Iran's economy were lifted. To many companies, the prospect of losing all access to USA markets is a daunting one.

Britain has vowed to honour the 2015 agreement, which Johnson said had "protected the world from an Iranian nuclear bomb, and in return [given] the Iranians some recognisable economic benefits".

Russian Federation and China - two other parties to the agreement - have also criticized the USA move and vowed to maintain trade with Iran.

In a question and answer session after the speech, Pompeo said in his first days as secretary of state, he spent time "Trying to see if there was a way to fix the deal".

And the EU's foreign policy chief said there was "no alternative" to the Iran nuclear deal. Netanyahu said that Pompeo has outlined "very strong position" of the USA with his address.

"From my conversations with European friends I know that they broadly share these same views of what the Iranian regime must do to gain acceptance in the worldwide community", Pompeo said, calling on allies to join the U.S.in pressuring Iran to change.
