and not a small amount of anger.
The decision by President Trump to tear up
the Iranian nuclear agreement is seen
as one that's both dangerous for the region, for the world,
and one that's entirely unnecessary.
It puts a question mark over the transatlantic relationship.
Some diplomats are describing it as the biggest rupture
in transatlantic relations since the end of the Cold war.

But that's not a good position either
for the western liberal democracies.
