The international community is finally showing some signs of waking up. There is not yet full realization that Iran has long since strategically decided to ditch the JCPOA, yet the reality is beginning to seep in. France speaks of “diplomatic escalation”, yet it is unclear however if this includes snapback sanctions for this is a very late diplomatic awakening. Israel’s covert sabotage operations against the Iranian nuclear weapons program may once more as so many times before buy more time for the international community but otherwise is war approaching in the Middle East. If the P5+1 are serious about the JCPOA should they impose snapback sanctions on Iran.
