Iran leader says Tehran will shred nuclear deal if US pulls out

Reuters - Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tehran would stick to its 2015 nuclear accord with world powers as long as the other signatories respected it, but would “shred” the deal if Washington pulled out, state TV reported. .. “I don’t want to waste my time on answering the rants and whoppers of the brute (U.S.) president,” Khamenei said in a speech to students in Tehran quoted by state television. “Trump’s stupidity should not distract us from America’s deceitfulness ... If the U.S. tears up the deal, we will shred it ... Everyone should know that once again America will receive a slap in its mouth and will be defeated by Iranians.”

If Trump goes ahead with his threat to pull out, he sets himself up for backfire.

US allies would then tend to distance themselves from, and isolate the US, providing a real check on its arrogance by challenging its self-proclaimed position as keeper of the world.

So go ahead Trump, pull out, and further advance the unraveling of the empire.
