This mistaken conclusion is that since the United States unilaterally withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — popularly known as the Iran nuclear deal — six months ago, the Islamic government in Tehran has been sitting idly, and is helpless against the world’s biggest economy and only superpower.
