You need to let the Iran deal go. There was NOTHING the USA could do, it was diplomatically backed into a corner.
Sure on a individual level the USA could diplomatically go toe to toe with UK,France,Germany, China and Russia.
But they were ALL against the USA. You were diplomatically out numbed in a hopeless way.
If the USA gad gone solo on this it would have been a disaster! Military option would have not been a option. The UK and French public at the moment
are 100% against military strikes or supporting them. That would mean no Diego Garcia or Cyprus or access to EU airspace making quick clean strikes
near impossible. sure it would be "possible" but it would be massively more risky and expensive. Not only that you alienate the UK your closest most
reliable and powerful Ally and the French and Germans.
That would leave the USA isolated alone in the world with only Israel and Saudi Arabia as "friends".....
I know you love Israel in a massive way but lets face it, they are only in it for themselves like Saudi Arabia.
Least the UK and EU have some sort of connection to you as family.
Military action off the table that just left sanction that were clearly not working......
~This deal gives the USA and its allies a advantage.
If Iran reneges on the deal, Iran is screwed. The UK and I will put money on France two will be pissed at being back stabbed and the USA will get all
the support it needs for strikes along with our air forces too.
The deal backs Iran into a corner now. If they break it they clearly will be the "bad" guys and loss any moral high ground. Military action becomes
