END OF THE IRAN DEAL

09-05-2018

Attached are the remarks of US Presidfent Trump, announcing the renunciation of the agreement with Iran, concluded in 2015 by his predecessor President Obama. The text of the 2015 deal can be found earlier in ths News section. The principal reason for President Trump is to undo what his predecessor had done. It further  divides the United States and adds to the distrust in the Atlantic Alliance. 

Still it is important  to study the remarks, especially with respect to the nature of the current Iranian regime. Concluding agreements with a regime supporting terrorism abroad and repressing its own people, is bound to be risky, as at least the European Governments might have learned from the Munich Agreement with Hitler in 1938.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
