Haranguing JCPOA Memories; Mulling Trump's Withdrawal from the Obama Agreement
The 115th Congress put before the President a multi-trillion dollar appropriations bill For fiscal year 2018, which did not hint one word about funding expenses needed in support of continued U.S. participation in the Obama-Iran deal. Proponents of the deal would not discuss on Record funding of needed expenses. Representative Govt again puts a quick end to US involvement in unfunded adventure. More
The ease of the undertaken attempt; put the fanaticism and insolence of the Lower House on public display. On 26 Oct. 2017 the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly, almost unanimously (2 opposed; 7 not voting) to support the activities of the Procurement Working Group. The House publicized their overwhelming support for the P.W.G. activities and mandate in their bill of October 2107: HR 1698.
The Obama arrangement with the Ministers of the Govt. of Iran, which is known in current U.S. vernacular as the "Iran nuclear agreement," established the bureaucracy known as the Procurement Working Group, which began operations 16 Jan. 2017.
A large part of the P.W.G. mandate is dedicated to expediting and approving Iranian acquisitions of nuclear weapons associated assets; while prohibiting the IAEA from investigating, verifying that such are not being diverted to the development of Iranian nuclear weapons capacity. This is all done in egregious violation of international treaty and law.
The P.W.G. officially advertises to vendors world-wide that these nuclear weapons associated class of assets, intended for sale to Iran can be bundled with ballistic missile associated goods, technologies and support services as a unit in a given procurement package, again in violation of treaty and international law.
The public was presented with HR 1698 while the U.S. was still Party to Obama's agreement with Iran, and was a participant in the activities of the P.W.G. At that time, the gossiping mendacious rumor prevailing was that Obama's "nuclear deal" would prevent Iran from ever acquiring a nuclear weapons. The claim cannot be reasonably reconciled with the fact of the P.W.G., its activities and mandate, and the other major concessions to the development of Iranian nuclear weapons capacity provided for in Obama's deal, which are discussed in this book.
Iran has consistently publicly pledged its intent that neighboring populations be extermination and neighboring governments overthrown. Thereby, the 115th Congressional approval of the P.W.G. mandate assisting Iranian development of the bomb, and Congressional approval of U.S. participation in this can only be most reasonably construed as a War Crime under the internationally codified category of Crimes against Peace:
Crimes against Peace defined: "Initiation of invasions of other countries and wars of aggression in violation of international laws and treaties, including but not limited to planning, preparation, initiation or waging a war of aggression, or a war of violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances, or participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the foregoing."
The 115th House overwhelmingly by vote supported U.S. involvement in Iran's preparation for pledged waging of war of aggression in violation of international treaties, agreements, &c. The House tried to justify as law (HR 1698) U.S. involvement in P.W.G. advancement of Iran's nuclear weapons programs;
Ironically it was the Congress that got the U.S. ejected from the deal. As demanding as Congress was that Trump stay in the deal, the Congress wouldn't fund U.S. participation in P.W.G. activities required to remain in the deal. Congress wouldn't fund, in March, April of 2018, the vaunted P.W.G. they had heartily approved in late 2017. Trump had to pull the U.S. out or violate this of the U.S. Constitution, which states: "No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time."
Trump's necessary withdrawal from the Obama deal is a sorry tale of when the extravagance of grasping politicians, in their not-well-thought-out, nor played-out ambitions, run into rule of law which is embarrassing to dispute. There's a lot more to this dreadful history that can be recorded in 600 words; proceeding.
