Iran will make a new nuclear bomb in a short period of time, and The New York Times reported last week that President Trump was considering a military strike against Iran in an attempt to stop Tehran`s growing nuclear program.
Iran`s uranium stockpile is 12-times larger than allowed under the Obama-era nuclear deal that the Trump administration withdrew from in 2018, according to The International Atomic Energy Agency.
Trump held a meeting Thursday in the Oval Office to discuss his options, but Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo dissuaded him against any actions right now. Saudi Arabia is also concerned, and Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz has spoken twice over the past two weeks with Miller to discuss Iran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the main topic of conversation was Iran. Tensions between Washington and Tehran have been high since January when Trump ordered a drone strike in Baghdad that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran`s elite Quds Force.
Thousands of U.S troops will by mid-January withdraw from Afghanistan and Iraq. Trump has long called for troops to come home and has criticized US intervention abroad. It seems like the troops are on the way to Iran because the US will not sit still and see Iran create a nuclear bomb.
The head of Nato warned of a «very high price», and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the plan «a mistake».
Mitch McConnell warned the president against making «any earth-shaking changes in regards to defense and foreign policy» before leaving the White House. Trump is yet to concede to Biden, and the cuts are scheduled to take place five days before Biden takes office on 20 January 2021.
