What’s behind the rising tensions between the US and Iran?

US President Donald Trump has always hated the Iran nuclear deal. Now Iran is threatening to stop complying with some of its obligations under the agreement.

How did we get here? And is the deal crumbling?

The BBC’s Paul Adams takes a look.

  1. Who runs the USA The 1percent multi rich printing their own money creating wars putting sanctions on nations+ putting their pupits in power their bullies like the Roman's they are the Great Roman empire the fourth beast And last to rule the earth Then Jacob will rule the nations under Christ(2Esdras6:9)soon these EDOMITES who dont have Salvation will be in slavery bondage then the earth will be at peace

  2. Halliburton (Dick Cheney's) company is in Dubai..across the strait from Iran…no Republican can go to war there… infact when Iraq was destroyed, the joke was-America has the Bush but gulf has the Dick, hence Iran was left out..

  3. If Nuclear power and weapons are bad and harmful it is bad for everyone of us , it is time someone offer let's get out of this whole , no country can have it , destroy all nuclear weapons and plan let's live green , what could be wrong . Come on we can do it , don't be selfish . Mr Trump , mr Bolton and …… talking to all be famous as a human , your name will be remembered for ever please , you want to be loved , you can do it I know you can do it. Be positive i will kick iran and Iranian if they say no , they will be more than happy . For nobody have it

  4. There is going to be a blessing for Iranian people if America attack Iran.
    Here's why:
    1- If America removes the current regime, then Iranians will be victorious.
    2- if Iran defeat the American army, then Iranians will still be victorious, since they finally get even with the great Satan America for all the meddling and authrocities that was inflicted upon the Iran.
    3- if America and Iran both lose in the war and they kill each other to the last soldier, the the world will be victorious, since two evil governments will eliminated from the face of the earth.

    By the way, the scenario 1 and 2 will be considered win situation.
    Scenario 3 is considered win, win situation.

  5. Trump's rescindment of all agreements let it be Trade,
    Security/Military or Climate is really for him to demonstrate to the world how
    good he is in MAKING DEALS, not the subject matter per se. His strategy is
    this:

    1. He will RESCIND ALL
    DEALS let it be NAFTA, INF, etc – Trade, Military, Security, Environment
    etc

    2. ACT TOUGH eg
    (re)impose sanctions, increase tariff etc

    3. SEND JARED back
    channel deals

    4. SIGN NEW DEALS usually
    less superior than the earlier deals

    5. BRAGS EVERYWHERE
    from coast to coast and in international forum eg UN, NATO etc on how he has
    reached the "BEST DEAL EVER IN THE RECORD OF USA HISTORY'', and hope
    history will record it as such even though the deal is far inferior to the
    previous deals.

    Why? What are his motives? Two-fold: (1) to get all the
    gullible voters/fools to vote for him; and (2) to go down as the Greatest
    Dealmaker in USA history….. This will be only in USA. The world, however,
    will look at him as the best presidential clown in the history of the world,
    better than Idi Amin of Uganda etc. And wishing more of the same or even better
    from Donny Jr and Eric….

    This Trade War is actually imploding the USA. Next phase is a
    mass influx of refugees/migrants. Nostradamus is laughing away in his grave
    saying ‘’I told you so’’.

    Trump's
    Foreign Policy in short:

    USA
    vs Europe;

    USA
    vs Everyone

    MAGA……  America
    First (to go down..)

  6. Do you think that there no homeless people in GREAT!! usa of trump?
    Did you see who were complaining from economic problems? The ladies with heavy and expensive make ups!
    Iran is being sanctioned by US for 40 yrs and it is not new. Trump has fortified it .Sure people are not happy with it but they are not happy also to accept the pressure of foreigners.

  7. Well what we do know that if people don’t get their way they’ll be yet more terrorism and yet more racism against anyone who doesn’t like certain beliefs. All try getting along without killing each other all the time please

  8. US and Israel do not want peace in the middle east, no deal is a good deal for them, they have lost credibility in eyes of the world. Iran should stand strong against warmongers.

  9. The reality is that so called nuclear deal was a joke. Just like in the past the world seems to jump on "turning a blind eye" to a global threat. Iran's threats of death to Jews, death to America, death to Sunni, death to infidels pretty well outline their goals. Now, it is simply a matter of time in which they will make good on this pledge. Their leaders are not bluffing. If America was such a horrible country than how come hundred of thousands of people are breaking the door down to get in ? Not so many trying to get into Iran , North Korea, China or Russia.

  10. Team America – World Police. Telling everyone else what they can and can't do, whose gas they're not allowed to buy, who the bad guys are, what everyone else's foreign policy should be.

    Pompeo is a preposterous buffoon and Bolton's job is just to start war with Iran for his paymasters in Tel Aviv.

  11. Create a nation for the Iranian people,? they didn't create a nation for the Iraqis or the Syrians. They created a platform to exploit the natural resources of those Nations and exactly the same thing is planned for Iran.

    British petroleum and a Chinese oil company are in Iraq extracting its oil reserves after signing a deal with the puppet government installed after they ousted Saddam Hussain when they falsely claimed he had weapons of mass destruction.

    America is no longer a Democracy.

  12. Pitiful excuse, there are no more Saddans of modern times. Their nuclear possessions are totally focused on challenging and endangering America's national security. C'mon CUT THE BULLSHIT. Iran is currently the territory of multiple terrorist large groups and on top of that they want to have the right to continue developing and advancing their nuclear weapons program. HELL NO, you ain't gonna do it pal. We are no fools here. The countries that have nuclear weapons have an advanced mentality and total control over their capabilities. They will never fall on the hands of any in-country terrorist armed group or guided by hatred toward US. These countries have evolved still carrying that burden as part of their culture, guided by big misunderstandings supported by twisted religious beliefs, doing their sacrifices on the name of their "sacred" purposes within their land itself, imagine the moment they decide it's time to challenge us here in the western hemisphere miles away from them?. THEY WOULDN'T EVEN CARE A DAMN IN THE NAME OF ……., whatever his delusional mind commands them at that time.

  13. …..How is it possible for men to fight from morning until
    evening, killing each other, shedding the blood of their fellow-men: And
    for what object?  To gain possession of a part of the earth! …….. How
    terrible it is that men, who are of the higher kingdom, can descend to
    slaying and bringing misery to their fellow-beings, for the possession
    of a tract of land! The highest of created beings fighting to obtain the
    lowest form of matter, earth!  Land belongs not to one people, but to
    all people.
    This earth is not man's home, but his tomb. It is for their tombs these
    men are fighting. There is nothing so horrible in this world as the tomb, the
    abode of the decaying bodies of men.
