On the 40 anniversary of the rule of the mullahs in Iran, the Iranian regime tries to boast about its nuclear success in different ways, even if they have to confess to cheating on the nuclear deal known as the JCPOA, says Alireza Jafarzadeh, the Deputy Director of the Washington office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
“The reality is that the Iranian regime has since the mid 1980’s tried to develop nuclear weapons. Why? Because they saw the nuclear bomb as a means for its survival. It has spent a huge amount of money, resources, and political capital to fulfill this objective.

When the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), was signed, it created a great deal of controversy. There were those who opposed it because it was too forgiving of Iran’s behaviour and because it didn’t fully address the nuclear threat, or Iran’s belligerence and meddling in the region. On the other hand, there were those who believed that it was a good deal that was necessary in protecting the world against Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
