    A BBC report today about the conflict mentioned the U.S. pullout from the agreement, but stopped short of suggesting a connection. Other reports I’ve read so far do not connect the two stories. or even mention the agreement-pullout in the context of the military actions between Israel and Iran. It’s hard for me to believe these story lines are unrelated. I intend to watch the reporting on this angle closely.

      I saw, and I’ve seen several commentators linking both stories but on Twitter. Please do, and thanks!

        A piece is running on the New Yorker today with the following theme:

        The attacks and counterattacks came just a couple of days after President Trump’s announcement, on Tuesday, that the United States was withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action—the Iran nuclear deal. The stories are often reported separately, but they should not be.

        Unfortunately this also is a commentary and there is no attribution for the statement. Here’s a link to the whole article: https://goo.gl/prx3hm.

    It would be interesting to explore the relationship, if any, between these military incidents on May 9 and 10, and Trump’s announcement of the US pulling out of the nuclear weapons agreement with Iran, and statements from the Iranian government that [Trump or the US] will regret it.

      Hey Steve, we thought so too but it’s very difficult to establish causality between both events unless you have access to high-level diplomatic sources – and even then, it’s not an easy task. Do you have any ideas on how we could do this?
