In unseren Thgen vergewissem sich die Amerikaner in beispielloser Weise ihrer Geschichte. Wo in den siebziger Jahren der zweihun dertste Jahrestag der Unabhängigkeitserklärung gegenüber dem bri tischen Mutterland den Anstoß zur historischen Besinnung auf euro päische wie autochthone Wurzeln transatlantischer Existenz bot, im Jahre 1983 die Erinnerung an die dreihundert Jahre zurückliegende Gründung von "Germantown" bei Philadelphia mancherlei Refle xionen über das Phänomen der Immigration im Werdegang der jun gen Republik auslöste, werden wir ausgangs der achtziger und zu Beginn der neunziger Jahre Zeugen zumindest des Versuchs auf al len Ebenen des Bildungs- und Erziehungswesens, in Politik, Gesell schaft und Kultur, anläßlich des zweihundertsten Geburtstags der US-Verfassung amerikanische Geschichte und Gegenwart als Konti nuum zu begreifen. Was zwischen 1W und 1791 entworfen, ratifi ziert und proklamiert wurde, die Verfassung eben mitsamt der in den ersten zehn Zusatzartikeln niedergelegten "Bill of Rights", ist deshalb ohne Beispiel, weil es auch in den neunziger Jahren unseres Jahrhunderts noch immer den Maßstab für das politische Handeln der westlichen Vormacht abgibt. Anders ausgedrückt: Die USA sind das einzige Land der Welt, das an der Wende zum dritten Jahrtau send noch immer mit einer Verfassung des achtzehnten Jahrhunderts regiert wird; ein Beispiel übrigens für viele weitere, das die Eigen tümlichkeit und Andersartigkeit amerikanischer Existenz verdeut licht. Sie sind von Europäern selten richtig begriffen worden, denen Amerika bloß als kolonialer Ableger der "Alten Welt" erscheinen wollte.

Donald Trump and the Unmaking of the Iran Nuclear Agreement

The Iran nuclear deal was a crowning moment of international diplomacy, allowing the world to step away from the edge of a self-created abyss. Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from this agreement threatens to return the world to that precipice. Dealbreaker recounts how this deal was made, why it was broken, and what the consequences of that action could be. The United States and its ally, Israel, pulled no punches, using diplomatic pressure to impose crippling economic sanctions, and covert activities to sow disinformation, sabotage equipment and murder Iranian nuclear scientists in an effort to stop the Iranian nuclear program from going forward. Iran prevailed, confronting the United States with the choice of either going to war, or accepting the reality of an Iranian nuclear program. The Iranian nuclear deal was the result. But the deal had an Achilles heel--the disinformation campaign waged by the United States and Israel to paint the Iranian program as military in nature left a residue of uncertainty and fear that the detractors of the deal used to attack it as little more than a sham. Donald Trump decried the Iranian nuclear deal as a "failed agreement" and promised to tear it up if he were elected President. Trump prevailed in the election, and ended up being as good as his word, pulling America out of the Iranian nuclear deal on May 12, 2018. Dealbreaker explores the nuances of the Iranian nuclear program, exposing the duplicity and hypocrisy of American diplomacy, supported by Israel and abetted by Europe, that led to the need for the Iranian nuclear deal and eventually caused the demise of an agreement that was simultaneously "the deal of the century" and claimed to be fatally flawed.

This book examines attempts to influence the outcome of the negotiations between Iran and the United States over Iran’s nuclear capabilities. In particular, it focuses on struggles within the United States around public and congressional opinion with regard to the accord. Trying to prevent a successful outcome to the talks became a cottage industry in Washington, with the casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson being just one of those who were pouring millions of dollars into the effort. On the pro-diplomacy side, there were a wide range of religious, peace, and arms control groups with some financial support coming from the Ploughshares Fund trying to create the space for a negotiated agreement. The tactics of both sides of the debate are described and analyzed to show how a contentious foreign policy issue can become not just a decision for high-level government decision makers, but a wide-ranging fight that involves scores of nongovernmental organizations, the media, and thousands of activists.

Zarif assured that he was and on the 14 July 2015, all parties agreed to a landmark comprehensive nuclear agreement" The Iran Nuclear Deal has indeed caused so many controversies, political headline and public concern.

This book explains in details every fact and truth about this historical deal, and indeed tells you what you do not know about the deal.

The Case Against the Iran Deal

How Can We Now Stop Iran from Getting Nukes?

The lawyer and New York Times–bestselling author of The Case for Israel discusses the pros and cons of the Iran nuclear agreement. An Iranian nuclear arsenal could make the world more dangerous. That is why decisions regarding Iran’s nuclear program are among the most important of our time. Here, Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz argues that the negotiations that led to this bad deal were deeply flawed. Evaluating the pros and cons of the Iran nuclear agreement, he asks the fundamental questions about what the deal means, how it will be implemented, and whether we now have the capacity to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. As a lawyer with decades of negotiation experience, and a regular commentator on Middle Eastern politics, Dershowitz explains how we could have gotten a better deal, and offers a unique analysis of the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran and the implications of a deal for Israel, the Middle East, and the global community. It is a call for both intelligent reflection and determined action to stop Iran from getting the bomb.
