(RepublicanReport.com) – Between vaccinations, a new stimulus package, radical new immigration measures, and burgeoning tensions with Iran, the Biden administration has its hands full. The last of these caused national and international controversy last week, as Joe Biden authorized airstrikes against Iranian-backed militias in Syria — without consulting Congress.
Iran’s nuclear program is a huge concern for the US. In 2018, then-President Donald Trump pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reimposing sanctions on Iran and isolating them economically. Despite the fact this strategy was a success, Joe Biden has indicated he would consider rejoining the deal.
On Thursday, March 4, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned the other signatories of the deal not to play “political games.” This was in response to rumors that Germany, France, and the UK were considering censuring Iran for its nuclear development activity, which is in excess of the level permitted by the terms of the deal.

Clearly, Iranian leaders are not about to abandon their nuclear program without a fight. This leaves Joe Biden in a thorny position, especially given the recent attacks in the Middle East.
