Iran is a state sponsor of terror, we were right to pull out of that garbage deal where they pinkie-promised not to build nukes (but only for 10 years) in exchange for billions in cash up front and access to western trade and financial markets.

There are frequent inspections of Iran's nuclear programs, so that's not a pinkie promise.
But if USA feels those inspections are not adequate, and the goal truly is to try to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons, then the proper course of action would be to re-negotiate that deal. Not break the terms of agreement, as USA did.

That's the proper course of action but since when has the US followed civil discourse, international laws or common sense?

But what right does the U.S have to put restrictions on other countries for this?

Individually, we don't depending on what you mean by restrictions.  We are part multiple defense packs with Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand plus other agreements with many southeast Asian nations to ensure peace and stability.  The authority to pressure NK to deter a nuclear program or other offensive military programs is granted by the collective nations who are most vulnerable to such military offenses among other international bodies.

That said, the restriction that we place upon NK are not direct but indirect.  We cannot enter NK and stop their programs (outside of a declaration of war and authorized by the United Nations...preferably).  But we can apply sanctions.  Further, we work on the international level to impose sanctions that are approved by a sanctioning body such as the UN. There are about 2 dozen UN sanctions and an equal number individually from the US, China, Japan, South Korea, the EU and Australia.

Trump said they ended their program at his behest and that he would establish peace between all 3 parties.  Obviously a term for peace between north and south is the denuclearization of the North.  Obviously. Trump,  who has admitted to being infatuated with Kim claimed 'Misson Accompanied' could not be more wrong.  Politics never replace actual reality. 

To be more direct to you, it's not about the US telling someone what to do.  It is about telling your citizens that you achieved peace where others did not without actually achieving peace.  

It's about lying.
