Pompeo Lays Out Demands for Iran

The Iranian foreign ministry condemned a U.S. vow to implement the “strongest sanctions in history” on Iran for its weapons development and activities in the Middle East, saying such a move would be illegal (ISNA) and amount to bullying.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced twelve demands for Iran (VOA), which include ceasing ballistic missile and nuclear weapons development and support for armed groups in the Middle East, as well as allowing international inspectors “unqualified access” to all sites, in a Monday speech on U.S. conditions for a new nuclear deal. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the United States has yet to demonstrate (CBS) how its exit from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement would make the region safer.

ANALYSIS

“The speech heralds an unabashed embrace of go-it-alone maximalism that is not only likely to come up short on Iran, but will also backfire across an array of U.S. interests and allies in an unpredictable fashion,” Suzanne Maloney writes for the Brookings Institution.

“The lure of continuity and the need to be praised by polite society could have easily tied Pompeo to the Washington consensus. But instead, in his maiden speech as secretary of state, he identified the problem: a regime that is bent on extending its imperial frontiers, developing nuclear arms, and abusing its citizens,” CFR’s Ray Takeyh and Mark Dubowitz write for Foreign Policy.

“Applying economic pressure on Iran would also require diplomacy with two countries that are already causing significant challenges for the United States: Russia and Turkey,” Peter Harrell writes for Foreign Affairs.

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS INTEL SPECIAL : ISIS CONTRA WORLD CUP IN RUSSIA & PUTIN

Gilad Shiloach analyzes the social media campaign that threatens the 2018 World Cup competition to be held in Russia. –  21 May 2018 – : THE MOSHE DAYAN CENTER

Supporters of the Islamic State have launched a massive social media campaign threatening to attack the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The tournament begins on June 14 and will take place at 12 venues in 11 cities across the country. The social media campaign is led by pro-IS channels on Telegram and deploys images and texts in English, Russian, and Arabic. Although the campaign was created by the terror group’s supporters and not by the official IS propaganda apparatus, it has received widespread, often hysterical attention in the Western media. The campaign, however, could also be seen as a desperate attempt by the IS to regain international attention by threatening one of the world’s most popular sporting events.
