Iranian Nuclear Weapons Chief Assassinated

quote:

The assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh may not much have impact on the Iranian nuclear programme he helped build, but it will certainly make it harder to salvage the deal intended to restrict that programme, and that is – so far - the most plausible motive. Israel is widely agreed to be the most likely perpetrator. Mossad is reported to have been behind a string of assassinations of other Iranian nuclear scientists – reports Israeli officials have occasionally hinted were true.


quote:

It would be a fair guess that Joe Biden would also oppose such assassinations when he takes office on 20 January and tries to reconstitute the JCPOA – which has been left wounded but just about alive in the wake of Donald Trump’s withdrawal in 2018. If Mossad was indeed behind the assassination, Israel had a closing window of opportunity in which to carry it out with a green light from an American president, and there seems little doubt that Trump, seeking to play a spoiler role in his last weeks in office, would have given approval, if not active assistance. He is reported to have asked for military options in Iran, in the aftermath of his election defeat. “I think they would have had to get a green light from Washington. I don’t think they would do it without,” Dina Esfandiary, a fellow at the Century Foundation, said. “In terms of motive, I think it’s just pushing Iran to do something stupid to ensure that the Biden administration’s hands are tied when they come in to pursue negotiations and de-escalation.’

Surprised it’s just making it here. There were reports on it before the markets closed today. This should make for an interesting finale to 2020.

Mossad has been busy making the most of Trump's (likely) final month in office.

Trump is the most pro-Israel (thanks Jared Kushner) president ever, so this doesn’t really surprise me. Also, frick the Joe Biden administration of you’re going to blast Trump for meeting with Kim and Putin and saying he’s open to dictators and enemy states, but then turn around and play nice with Iran.

International law has no weight. The U.S. is the only country that can dish out punishment for a violation
