    it is also flawed to say that because something happened in the past that thing is ok now without considering the context of the individual situations.

    The president does have the power to do so, but generally countries and people stay in contracts, so long as each side is abiding. The Poland situation is very different.

Why was the US unilaterally breaking the Poland agreement different?

Were the reasons for it clearly explained, was there a reason for it? Obama stated the reasons in quotes at the time about the reasons they were going for it.

It also was to get Russia onboard to help with Iran. So counter initiatives were in place.

At present, what Trump is doing is pulling out, planning to punish allies for working with Iran and try to make Iran come back to the bargining table. And hoping they just give in and give whatever the US wants. Ignoring that we broke our word on this, not them.

So, it is quite different. It is also different in that what happened with Poland was unilateral. Not even all of Europe thought it was a good idea at the time. It may mnot be in good form for appearances or anything but it is different than pulling out of an international agreement that you brokered that the other side did not do anything to violate.
