Donald Trump could soon dismantle the agreement designed to curb the Iranian nuclear program. Our catheter cowboy will do his best to keep that from happening.

I thought Germany France and (still) Brittain were part of the EU... but maybe as a german Citizen may didn´t know about some Plans to change that.
Probably its not a List when you state "the whole northern Hemisphere of Countrys"... but maybe its realy just me.
It's all to help his Saudi friends, destabilizing the Middle East = oil price increase = Happy Saudi princes = approval to big Trump development in Saudi Arabia. And here is the kicker, everyone in the developing world is a bit poorer today because of the higher oil price. He has single handily revived decades of affords to lower poverty. F U you Trump, f u you small little retarded piece of shit
lets invade. iraq yessss, lets invade Afghanistan yessss, leys invade iran yeessss no wait we dont want war, america u are already in war for favor of Israel for decades now. if america leaves the middle east Arabs and Persians will jump on israel in no time, its not just the oil is making sure our young assessor thrives in the future
17:45 Im persian and FUCK YES THATS WHAT WE ASKED FOR 8 Years ago IN THE LAST PERSIAN UPRISING U DIDNT DO SHIT
WE are asking you once again to do what this dude just said put some calls in with your cong. reps and make it happen put some tax $ into it
we need these savages gone
being persian and living in iran, i do love watching this
almost 100% of what he said was true, there is a liberal middle class, which consists of every 15 to 40 year old individual in the country
and we dont just walk around hating on US or Israel, i love israel and i love the u.s Despite the popular belief that iranian citizens burn down flags and shout death towards yall
those are all propagandas done by the Shia dictator government to shift the balance in their favor
i do thank #Trump for his actions againts my government, if it takes a vilage to raise a child, it takes the whole world to change iran and bring it into the fold
at the top of my head, wide internet censorship [ we are 3rd in the world after North korea and sumali ] no freedom of speech, no due process for arrested political activists, no internet and telephone for the cities that rise and protest
theres a lot of shit wrong with this country and we need everyone to help us, Quit the Iran deal
if u do, the government loses a lot of their money that they use funding terrorism and so on, non of it is used internaly
if you dont the government keeps stealing and stealing, we still have earthquake survivors living in tents because the government doesnt like to save kurds and Soni's
most our money goes to palestine syria yemen lebonan and so on
i have a College degree in English literature and 2 diplomas, one in industrial electronics and one in graphichs design and believe it or not i work at a fast food joint
I usually find myself agreeing with John on everything but the Iran deal is bad due to the fact that Iran can continue and develop long range missiles which are capable carrying nukes. Iran had make significant progress in development of atomic weapons. The best case scenario is that they put the program on hold for 10 to 15 years while they grow their economy under the deal and when the time is right they ramp up the old program to a get a bomb and the missiles are already done. So the world will have the face a much complex problem in 10, 15 or 20 years. Say what you will about Bolton, but he is not wrong about the intentions of the Iranians. They want a bomb and I don't think anyone believes it will be possible to change their minds about it. Once they will have the bomb I don't think they'll have a close relationship with the US.
John !??? no effort put into the skateboarding bit?? I mean ,you put tons of effort into Beer Dingos and ciggies , but You mention "The Bibe" once and the joke is how your writer waka waka waka waka waka ? beeteedubs , awesome show ,kisses!
I dont think John Oliver properly understood what the problem with the deal was. It only looked good on paper but it was too lenient in the sense that Iran could hide their nuclear development program by downsizing.
Iran is the only country that protected its Jewish population for thousands of years while Europeans and Arab countries killed them and to this Jews in Iran have an MP in the parliament. Iran has problems with Israel only because of the policy of regime change by Republicans and Iran has been trying to make an intervention too expensive so the Republicans would not invade the country. Iran does not have offensive capability and its doctrine is only defensive while Israel has nuclear, chemical and biological weapon. the deal and more trade would help Iran open up and increase the influence of moderates
thanks for the really late warning bell re: iran.... but what's after? iraq, iran.... then... what's next? pakistan and then saudi arabia? i think i'm just missing some really obvions plan / reasoning here....
1.Israel disstabilise middle east when it build nukes...I don't understand why Iran can not have nukes when Israel can
2. There are no Iran soldiers in Syria....it's an excuse made by Israel to keep attacking Syria...
3. USA is Israel puppy and Saudi is USA puppet
4.we all know the truth ...USA is a complete trash and untrustworthy
It's a double talker
Keeps spying on its allies
Keeps provoking Russia...
Wants conflict because Israel and USA economy works by defence industry
Yeezys’ R’Gay what do you mean paid them? It was their money to begin with America froze their assets and took it. Part of the deal was if they stop and reaching uranium for their nuclear program then they get their frozen assets unfrozen that we stole from them back.
I noticed you left out North Korea John. All you had to say was Obama was a bitch and threw 150 billion dollars at Iran. Just like Clinton threw money at North Korea. Think of what that 150 billion dollars could have done for OUR country. Admit Trump is doing a great job and move you pussy.
All these fuck faces from Bolton to Cheney who keep pushing the war racketeering conglomerates need to be tried for treason, evidence being so overwhelming likely resulting in their guilt should be all put to death as described literally by our constitution.
And we must stop the military machine of war profiteering. Simply require all weapon supplies of the military from fighter jets to rifles to tanks be 100% by the US government. No profit from war only in time of emergency when the Congress has made an open declaration of war against another country, and only during that period, and only with max profit margin of 1%. Any surplus above bust be refunded by contractors to the government. Failure to to do so would be considered treason, punishable by death.
All the weapons companies can go fly fucking kite, we produce it at costs, and no profit motive to encourage ass hats to lead us into perpetual wars and "conflicts".
And maybe we won't have a DOD that $600 billion a year on average, spending more than the next 7 highest military spending nations combined to which we're allies.
Perhaps we could join the civilized world in having universal healthcare at a fucking fraction of the cost of what we currently spend on DOD... seriously if Medicare was allowed to negotiate prices as every other fucking countries medical system does to prevent racketeering, a universal healthcare system would cost about $250 billion dollars a year, universal no tuition and some room/board higher education would only be $80 billion a year.
So much we could do with $600 billion a year.
Gets squandered on making us less safer so war racketeering fuck heads can keep making money.
But then there's healthcare, our own medicare system cannot even negotiate with hospitals, pharma, clinics, etc. Red flag of what a corrupt oligarchy we are in the US.
All I know this regime is the sponsor of terrorist in the hole world it’s responsible for execution of more then 120000 of the best Iranian people in last 40 years..
And Obama’s deals made this regime stronger to do all disasters in Iran and the region..
Trump is the only president of USA doing the right things to Iranian regime...
Iran didn't even win against Iraq - they would last less than a week against the US. So why on earth should one do a deal with them? Just tell them, either you stop your nuclear program or else we will give green light to Israel to blow up your facilities. Done.
Seems like a common thing with people stuck in the 50s. Invade without care of the consequences if the government does like ours. Always try to screw over everyone except themselves. I still can't believe this ignorant clown got elected.
So the answer is to allow Iran to make a bomb in 10 years.
10 is more than 0, but right now Iran DOESN'T HAVE THE MONEY OR PUBLIC SUPPORT TO WAGE A WAR.
If we give them 10 years and BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, their economy will be revived and they will be ready for a fight with anyone who doesn't accept Sharia Law.
No one wants war right now, especially Iran. Iran wants war in 10-15 years on their terms.
If the rest of the world waits, it can prove catastrophic.
Keep the sanctions. Give Iran 2 choices:
1. Have an economy
2. Have a bomb
You can't have both.
But this deal allows both in 10 years...
Your kind of missed that point Mr Oliver.
How does that make sense to anyone?
I mean Iran is a backwards country full of jew hating psychopaths so do we really trust Iran in anything? They actively fund terrorism, kill homosexuals, jews and apostates. Sooo yeah i totally trust them.
I can see its really hard to criticize trump here and not criticize israel at the same time. There is a very thin line between terrorists and freedom fighters from a US point of view. Hezbollah is more considerable than the state's official army and is associated with the muslim brotherhood, an organization which is older than the UN. I am not a fan of war and destruction and bombs, I'm fairly certain that Iran is very clear with its nuclear deal, they even invited inspectors, but the threat we are talking about here, two countries in the middle east having nuclear weapons might make it less likely to drop one. We all know who the other one is without any signed deal.
John, I'm an iranian American, Iran stopped its ambition of nuke years prior the agreement, Iran's religious leaders are against any nuke in Iran or the world, they're the signers of NPT, Israel with its 200 nukes is not a signor of NPT .... were you scared you'd lose your job if you mentioned Israel's nukes ?
What is truely hilarious is that all the trumptards, alt right fascists, and overall deplorables of American society that are so vehemently opposed to the Iran deal, none of them have every actually fucking READ IT! >__>
Hezbollah ain't a terrorist group, they are a political militia and the only thing standing against Israel bullying Lebanon, they even have 13 seats in parliament -_- when they occupied the south, politicians did nothing but talk, but Hezbollah continued fighting guerrilla warfare and kicked them out.
And by the way, Iran doesn't call Israel by it's name since they don't recognize it (good for them tbh). Btw why does everyone freak out at the idea of Iran having an A-bomb? It's not like they're gonna use it, it's a deterrent. And let's say you still don't want them to have a bomb, then you should also strip Israel if it's 400 *_ILLEGAL_* nuclear warheads.
Before Obama, war was never a viable option. The crippling sanctions were working. They were slowly starving the Authoritarian regime to death. But once Obama was desperate for a legacy, he would rather appease the worlds greatest sponsor of terrorism whose goal is to destroy Israel. And the narrative of war or peace was created. Note that Obama completely bypassed Congress which is why Trump is so easily able to destroy Obama's legacy. The Iran deal gave $150 billion in cash to the Mullahs, dropped the sanctions which allowed billions more to fund Iran's aggression in the Middle East, had no ban on ballistic missile research, no inspections on military sites, no surprise inspections, and they could restart their nuclear program in 10 years. Is this a joke? This only kicks the nuclear can down the road while letting Iran gain billions. Obama hoped Iran would show some good will in the region. Yet Iran has continued its aggression as it dominated Syria, Yemen, and Lebanon since the deal was made in 2015. Note that millions of Iranians are happy that Trump got out of the deal. They know the sanctions against the radical Theocratic authoritarian regime they live under will weaken the Mullahs and hopefully a new revolution will take place that will overthrow this ruthless regime.
Sae Yi we did not just give them a 150 billion dollars it was Iran's money to begin with America froze their assets and took it. Part of the deal was them getting that money back when they stop enriching uranium.
Trump has, in effect, screwed everyone at home, our allies, and the Middle East. He pulled the United States, the most powerful arbiter of the deal, out of this deal and now he wants stricter sanctions and being the Iranians to the table, which will surely see the plan fall through. When that happens, they will begin arming nukes in a matter of 0 years, less than the imminent 10, and according to Oliver, 0<10, which I’m guessing is something Trump does not understand. Furthermore now the summit with North Korea is at stake because Kim understands that if the US wants to pull out of a deal like Iran, how will they keep a deal that does the exact thing, let along try and forge one! It just shows how blind trump is to his actions and how it will see the destabilization of the Middle East and further isolation from our European Allies
So many things wrong with this piece...
I'll just fixate on the 4% uranium bomb making analogy: It's not like trying to get drunk off of 1 PBR, it's like trying to get drunk off of bread instead of beer. Sure, there's some ethonol in bread, produced by the yeast during fermentation, but to actually get drunk you'd need to eat several times your weight in bread every minute. It just can't happen!
So..... yeah 0 is less than 10 but in the end they will. Buying time by lifting restrictions on a country who's on politicians brings our flag and chants death to America. Deal realistically didn't change shit. Only thing we got is longer to not have to deal with the threat. Threat is still the same. Has always been there and will continue to be.
Leland4783 I see what you mean, but let's just look at what the European allies are facing.
The wars in Iraq, Yemen, and Syria brought a number of refugees into their countries, way more than into the far away USA. And, yes, in 2015 Merkel opened the flood gates, but it still doesn't change the fact that Europe has had this problem even before she had done that.
For Europeans, preventing a war in Iran means preventing another refugee crisis. As one had put it, it's not about supporting Iran, but protecting their homelands. And I think anyone can sympathize.
We should remember that when 9/11 happened, all NATO allies backed the U.S. military effort and entered Afghanistan together with the USA and stayed there for years to come.
All U.S. military operations in the Middle East stop over at Ramstein, Germany, at the U.S. military base there. The bodies of fallen soldiers are prepared there before being brought to home to the U.S., wounded soldiers are being treated there, resupply is coming from there, it's a key strategic location.
And both the UK and France joined the U.S. in their air strike in Syria recently and the French Foreign Legion has been working alongside the U.S. military in Yemen for years now.
It's important to keep in mind that the Europeans are indeed allies to the United States and that many, for example France and the UK, have worked with the United States for, I think, over a hundred years, and that Germany has been an ally for almost 70 years. That's a long time and in the end, the commonalities, for better or worse, outweigh the differences and it would be sad to just throw that away.
The IAEA said that Iran was not violating its treaty and that should be given some weight. And if confrontation with the Iranians is the strategy, it might be better to prevent another Iraq.
Israel has been crying wolf for decades. When are we going to call them on it? Get real!
When are the international inspectors going to start in Israel (and the U.S.)? Why are the rules only for some countries? Never forget JFK warned israel not to do it: www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/kennedy-letter-to-ben-gurion-regarding-visit-to-dimona
Nuclear physics fail!
Yes, you can make a bomb out of 3% uranium. It will be so huge that it won't fit on any missile, though. It would be like trying to get drunk on a massive amount of 2%abv beer. The large volume makes it difficult, but not impossible.
I'm from the future, watched this in 2019 and wanted to tell you, that the world has changed a lot after Israel nuked 14 different sites in Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. No one expected Russia to actually wipe out Israel after the first attacks, but the war between the USA and Russia only lasted for about 4 hours. New Zealand is now the only place on earth that still has access to the internet, served them well to no be included in any worldmaps. Hope anyone in 2018 can read this and take care of the orange clown ruling the USA before the war.
Iranians are fans of Japanese culture and many TV shows from Japan are popular there, including Oshin (a classic drama about the life of a girl growing up in the Showa Period in Japan). Also, according to a Japanese TV show I saw, many women in Japan are practitioners of ninjutsu. Actually ninjutsu is practiced widely in many countries around the world, except Japan, to the great amusement of this show I was watching.
#1. Jews live in Iran in peace with the rest of their fellow human beings. Search YouTube if you don't believe me.
#2. The Iranian regime only seeks to rid humanity of Zionism, also known as Racism.
MSM disinformation is aiding another World War pushed by Zionist Oligarchic Elitists.
Please don't fall for more war lies, human folks.
