Russia and China are both putting their feet down about the talk in the US and France about renegotiating the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the 2015 agreement on freezing and curtailing Iran’s nuclear enrichment program by the UN Security Council and Germany in return for lifting international sanctions.

I’m impressed that Juan Cole was able to write that whole article without mentioning the menacing role of Israel in the whole mix, driving the US and France I am sure to war for…? Israel?
The people of the United States have no problem with, and want peace with; Iran, Syria, Russia, Yemen and Palestine. Please no more conflict for Israel!
