A Brief History
The US brokered multi-country deal with Iran in July of 2015 to limit Iran’s nuclear research and delay Iranian development of a nuclear weapon has generated heated rhetoric by Israel condemning the pact, and strident criticism (mostly by Republicans) in the United States, with the US Senate poised to debate the merits of the agreement after the summer Congressional recess.
Question for students (and subscribers): Will the US and other countries honor the agreement if Congress fails to ratify the pact? What will happen if the hard fought for agreement falls apart? Please let us know in the comments section below this article.
