UK envoy to US says Donald Trump dumped Iran nuke deal ‘to spite Obama’

After first describing White House personnel as “inept,” the British press published further comments by UK Ambassador Kim Darroch, accusing President Trump of “diplomatic vandalism” and how he pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal because, “it was Obama’s deal.”

Britain’s envoy to the US believed Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal because it was hashed out by the administration of his predecessor Barack Obama, according to leaked documents published by the Mail on Sunday.

“The administration is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism, seemingly for ideological and personality reasons — it was Obama’s deal,” ambassador Kim Darroch wrote in a 2018 memo.

The cable was included in a second batch of leaked reports published in the British newspaper, the first of which led to Darroch’s resignation as UK ambassador to the US this week, saying it was no longer possible to do his job.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Times reported that officials from the National Cyber Security Center, spy agency GCHQ, and MI6 had zeroed in on a suspect who had access to historical Foreign Office files.

The first leaked reports authored by Darroch were published last weekend, causing major turmoil between London and DC.

The ambassador described the White House as “inept,” prompting Trump to claim the ambassador was a “pompous fool” whom he would no longer deal with.

British Ambassador Kim Darroch is an ignoramus with little regard for Israel’s safety.

Obama’s deal had THREE major flaws of gargantuan importance any responsible person would have seen:

1) Iran was allowed to continue ICBM tests. ANYONE who understands strategic military science knows intercontinental ballistic missile are precision guided ballistic missile that are designed for nuclear weapons delivery of one or more thermonuclear warheads…so WHY was this deliberately allowed unchallenged? 

2) Obama’s deal allowed the Iranians to have nuclear weapons….in 15 years. – WHY?? What was the purpose of the deal if not to prevent that from happening? AND, had the Iranians waited the decade, they would have had legal, non-restricted permission to construct nukes in the future. United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231

(1 and 2 together means Obama allowed Iran the ability to perfect designing ICBMs so when ‘break-out’ was permissible 15 years later, Iran could go straight to attacking Israel.)

3) What kind of fool accepts ‘verification inspections’ AFTER waiting 30 days following a formal request? – Obama & Kerry did, and bullied the other signatories to accept this ludicrous condition.

Trump & Netanyahu saw these flaws…. and did something. No one else did.
For the last TWO YEARS Obama & Co. were traveling to meet with Iranian officials to salvage the deal.

Anyone who still advocates for the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) cares only for immediate financial profits (made with doing business with Iran), and nothing about Israel’s safety, and perhaps the safety of the world.
