This latest meeting of the JCPOA participants in Geneva, minus the US, was more than just a physical isolation from the the UNSC. It is one thing to cast one’s veto in that exclusive club, but quite another to withdraw from an agreement and then expect to be able to exercise its privileges.
What Trump has put on the table here is that if he can withdraw from an agreement and yet claim authority equivalent to those remaining in the agreement, might it not be time to respond to the US that others can choose to ignore future US UNSC vetos until a more reasonable US administration is in place?
This latest US UN uniploarism action may take a back seat to Trump’s new election machinations. Trump is now urging voters to vote twice, once by mail and once in person, where the delay in reconciling the votes and bringing charges on millions of double votes would create a no result situation, as Gordon feels that it would.
That would throw it into the hands of the Supreme Court where the Republican party and outside allies have worked for years being able to rig election outcomes by their being determined by a stacked court.

l and the UN Security Council resolution which endorses it.
Araghchi did note however that European attempts to provide Iran’s economic benefits from the deal fall short of Tehran’s expectations. Addressing reporters after the meeting, the Chinese delegate said the US was sabotaging the attempts of other countries to work with Iran.
During Tuesday’s meeting, it was also announced that Britain, France and Germany are attempting to make their special trade mechanism with Iran known as INSTEX open to more shareholders including China and Russia.
But the overriding message of this Joint Commission session was the need to confront US attempts in New York to keep up the pressure on Tehran and destroy the JCPOA.
