(FixThisNation.com) – The Biden administration is still looking to pursue a controversial nuclear pact with Tehran despite the recent drone attack from Iran on an American base in Syria which led to the death of a U.S. contractor.
The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the Iran Nuclear pact is named, would help enrich the Middle Eastern country by offering them “access up to $275 billion in financial benefits during its first year in effect and $1 trillion by 2030.”
Veteran Iran experts have argued that the agreement is not tenable anymore because of Iran’s aggressive behavior, including the failure to stop the drone attacks that target Americans. In February Iran was caught enriching uranium to 84 percent purity, which is only 6 percent away from weapons-grade uranium used for nuclear weapons.
Jason Brodsky, the policy director of the U.S.-based United Against a Nuclear Iran (UANI), in an interview with Fox News Digital, argued that “The JCPOA framework is not a viable one” and that those who are arguing that diplomacy is the way of handling the Iran nuclear deal are not paying attention to the “last seven-plus years, where world powers have spent more time trying to salvage it than it was ever fully implemented.” He added that the lack of bipartisan support in the United States has also not allowed the country to deal with “Tehran’s lethal non-nuclear behavior.”
The U.S. State Department has not set the JCPOA as a priority, but they are continuously getting closer to an agreement. According to a recent Axios report, the White House is also discussing a possible temporary deal that would help Tehran get some relief from its current economic sanctions in exchange for freezing certain elements of its suspected atomic weapons program.
