Trump vs. Iran: What’s the UN for, Anyway?

President Trump, with Vice President Pence, White House advisers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley and other military personnel, speaking on Jan. 8, 2020, about Iran’s missile strikes against Iraqi military bases housing US troops, days after Trump ordered the killing of Iran’s Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani. Much of the current crisis, the author writes in an analysis, stems from Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal. WHITE HOUSE PHOTO
