President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the deal with Iran creates, unnecessarily, a new source of tension in a region besieged by conflicts.Conflicting relations with Iran can be traced to a large extent to Aug. 19, 1953, when both the United Kingdom and the U.S. orchestrated a coup that overthrew Iran's democratically elected Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh.In addition, while Iran has not invaded another country in centuries, both the U.S. and Israel, Iran's enemies, have led brutal wars against other countries and peoples.In September 1980, Saddam Hussein started a war against Iran that had devastating consequences for both countries.The war resulted in at least half a million and probably twice as many troops killed on both sides, and in at least half a million men who became permanently disabled. Given this background, however, rather than following a policy of appeasement, Trump nixed the nuclear agreement with Iran that goes contrary to the U.S.' own long-term political and economic interests in the region.
