Surprised no thread about this. Iran is now into three days of sustained, country-wide protests against the regime. 200 have been arrested and government security forces have shot two protesters dead last night. Regardless if this is turns out to be the start of the revolution that throws the clerics out of power the regime's days are numbered. Back in 2012 half of the population was under 35 years old and that's probably increased by now, the younger generation won't put up with a weak economy and control by radicals for much longer.

From a week ago. This may be one of the catalysts for all of this...

There are rumors of an unusually high amount of unmarked planes leaving Iran. If those planes have key regime people, this could mushroom quickely.

Yet another campaign promise up in flames. Seems Trump is now good with the "worst deal ever". LMAO. Good news for rational America, bad news for dumb ass Trump voters who believed his campaign lies.

CNN:

Trump -- who during the election campaign described the Iran pact as "the worst deal ever" -- is under pressure to make good on more of his pre-election promises. But he is also under immense pressure by European powers who helped brokered the deal to preserve it. According to US officials who spoke to CNN, Trump's own senior security advisers also urged the President to sign off on the waivers and not to kill off the agreement.
