The JCPOA, or Iran nuclear deal as its more popularly known, is beginning to run its course. The US has left the deal, and the European Union has not been able to put together a package of economic and financial incentives to offset the sanctions put in place by Washington to entice

Tehran to remain in the deal. Now, Iran has its own political, social and economic problems. If they seek to restart nuclear tech research and development, they will be adding international tensions to that mix. But it could bring the people together, and divert attention from domestic problems. This will put it in Trump’s sights in 2020.
