Iran Deal: 67% of US Citizens Don’t Want to Pull Out

TeleSur | – –

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he wants to “decertify” the agreement.

A CNN poll has found that 67 percent of U.S. citizens don’t want Washington to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he wants to “decertify” the agreement, which would allow Congress to make changes to the multi-nation accord and potentially pull the country out of the historic deal.

“It would be a waste of time to respond to such blatherings and nonsensical remarks by the foul-mouthed U.S. president,” Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in response to Trump’s threat.

Only three out of 10 polled said they felt Iran posed a “very serious” threat to the United States, the lowest rate since 2000.

Of the over 1,000 people polled, 62 percent said they feel a “very serious” threat from North Korea, or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, DPRK.

Yet, an even larger number, 63 percent overall and 88 percent of Democrats, feel Trump has been “more reckless than responsible” in his rhetoric against the DPRK. An overall 57 percent of those asked “disapprove” of how Trump handles relations with the Asian country.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS via telephone.

  1. Several points:

    (A) a strong plurality of Jewish-Americans polled in 2015 approved of the nuclear agreement involving Iran – despite the GOP and PM Netanyahu strongly opposing it;

    (B) there is speculation that North Korea may have electromagnetic “super-pulse” capabilities with a thermonuclear weapon that could severely damage the electrical grid that supplies America’s electricity – the U.S., unlike Israel, has not expended funds to “harden” its grid to protect it from a possible super-pulse attack – and top U.S. experts in this field have warned that millions of American lives could be at risk in the event of such an attack.

    • per (B) EMP output of any thermonuclear detonation is enormous. A U.S. Test in 1962 over Johnson Island where a 1.4 megaton warhead was detonated 240 miles up and ‘significant damage was done to both civilian and military electrical systems throughout the Hawaiian Islands, over 800 miles away from the blast.’ as reported to Congress.

      Use of a weapon of this yield, today, over the West Coast of the U.S. will produce unimaginable effects.

      Fortunately/unfortunately North Korea H-bomb test yields are 250 kilotons at best which could still turn every i-Thing within pulse radius into chunks of stone and metal suitable for cracking nuts.
